This got me thinking of how blessed we all are for the opportunity we have to do what we do. It also got me thinking of how far our camper has come this year. Ours has had repairs updates and improvements inside out front to back.

Owning these buses gives us all a better opportunity to see and enjoy the holiday for its real value, family and faith. With the bus IMO every day I go out to it is Christmas all the rest of the year  :D.


Most recent project an American Walnut floor laid on a...... ? degree angle LOL. Just got it in yesterday. It is absolutely stunning. The variance in grain and color is so dramatic it took me 2 hrs after I finished before I could drag myself away from looking at it.

The christmas tree is going to look great in there this year.

New pistons, rings, cylinder liners, mains and rod bearings, and freshly rebuilt heads! :(

  Sounds like the 12 days of Christmas, lol.

  On the 12th day of Chrsitmas, my bus owner gave to me, 12 new bearings.

  11 rubber gaskets, 10 brand new seals, 9 little washers, 8 shiney pistons, 7 wrist pins, 6 slobber tubes, and 5 golden anodised bolts!

  4 new injectors, 3 clevis pins, 2 rebuilt heads, and a nicely polished crankshaft just for me

Like most of you, I have come to believe it is Xmas for the bus year round LOL. But just so it doesn't feel left out on the big day, we stumbled across a couple of polished aluminum billit lights while carousing the Xmas bizarr's today. They're for customizing a motorcycle. I'm going to get rid of the cheapo Walmart backup lights and install these. The neatest thing is that they match the polished aluminum mirrors upfront. I have a feeling once I get them on they'll look like they were made for the bus ;D Dang, this is exciting!!! ;D ;D

Can't help it, I'm addicted to 'bus' :o :o

We have found we find the best things for the bus, when we are just out and about, and come across it by accident. It is true that a bus is never completely finished. We have already found things that we want to change when we finish the first round, lol.

Tolerance from my wife and hopefully a thorough gutting. Plus investigation of all sub systems for evaluation and design for the new life in front of it.

Tolerance from my wife and hopefully a thorough gutting. Plus investigation of all sub systems for evaluation and design for the new life in front of it.

A guy was walking down a beach and found a bottle, he opened the bottle and a genie appeared.  The genie being most gracious grants him one wish.  The guy thinks for a little bit and says, "build me a bridge to Hawaii."  The genie replies, "all things are possible, but even this, is too much for me.  Why a bridge?" and the guy says, "my wife wants to go there, I don't like boats, I cannot swim, I need a bridge."

The genie sighs and says, "I am afraid this is impossible."  But I will still grant you the one wish, if you can think of something, anything.  So the guy thinks a little and then says, "Can you make my wife more understanding."

The genie looks at him and replies .... "You want one-lane or two-lanes on that bridge?"
