Kyle, Dallas and I will be glad to bring something to contribute food wise.  Just let us know what you need.  We are thinking about getting there on Thursday and will need to pick up whatever we bring before we get there.  We no longer have my junk heap of a car and once we get the bus parked we don't want to have to move it till we have to.  It's nice to know there are still campgrounds around that let any vehicle in, even airstreams.  LOL  We are in Chester tonight at the state park and except for the heat, had a fairly uneventful trip.  Right now we are enjoying the a/c and a thunderstorm.  Nice excuse to lay back and do nothing!  Cat

We made it to the State park in Chester and found a fairly shady spot and decided to just chill a while.  We have enjoyed just a bit of vacation, no job, no packing, no bus maintenance and a nice lake we can watch all day.  We will see everyone tomorrow evening!  Looking forward to it!!  Cat

FWIW I've been trying to think of something where we guys could put our collective thinking to work and find interesting...somewhere this side of a full blown seminar...and remembered that last winter I bought an Ultra-sonic leak detector.  It's great for finding those stupid little air leaks which plague us all.

While there's no substitute for the old spray bottle of soapy water this tester allows you to cover a lot more ground in a shorter period of time and zero in to the suspect areas. I'll pop a fresh battery in it and bring it along and would be happy to let anyone borrow it if they have a questionable area they'd like to check out.

Just please don't fill the listening end up with grease! ???

That is right after I find the leak in my spare tire compartment.......

Ok, I'm preparing for the journey in the am and I want to make sure that I have done what I can to prepare for the ride.  I have checked the normal items suchas tires, oil etc..  Everything seems to function well.  Now don't get me wrong, everything is not perfect, but working.  There are a few air leaks here and there, but it pumps up from zero in about 5 min, cranks when asked, and stops when brakes are applied.  I do need to check the coolant level but not quite sure how.  I did drive the bus a fair amount this week running everything through to motions and all seemed well.  I guess I am aprehensive due to the fact that I just got the bus and did not plan on taking it out this soon, but I really want some input and I know if I bring it I will get more than a share.  Fire away.

buddydog

remember my first trip in the bus. Was to Daytona bike week.

along about harleyville sc it started to run hot. had to stop and put water in about every 100 or so miles.

 One of my traveling Buddy's had a new s&s with a cummins said he would follow me and look after me and the old bus.
Along about jacksonville he came across the radio and said to slow down he was having trouble keeping up. I finally pulled over and he came by blowing smoke bad.

we got it into a cumming dealer in jacksonvile. placed his bikes in my trailer and proceeded on. At daytona i pulled my dipstick out and water ran out. removed the plug and let it drain all week, filled it up with fresh oil and started home. made it back to north carolina.

The s&s made in back 6 month's later with a new cummings. The old detroit just got a new head and keeps on ticking.

look forward to seeing you this week
