Well Ed, there's always the option to shave your head everyday like I do from April until October. In the summer, hair doesn't do much good anyway but that's just me. :)
It will be interesting to learn the history of that bus and why the barber chose that option for his shop.

Maybe if I park it near the "junk" pile (previously used useful stuff) she won't notice?

I think that he has another bus of some kind, will ask him about it next time i see him. I know that he does have an older Wanderlodge that he bought that needs an engine.

I don't know about that Dick. She has eyes like a hawk. Are you a FMCA member? If we ever get to cross the border we will be in Goshen IN next June with a bit of Shipsawanna thrown in.

Bill, yes. If you ever get to visit, send me a note. We're only about 50 miles from Goshen.

That is really cool! Next time I am out that way, (Perhaps to Mexico to get my bus painted) I will stop by for a buzz.
