Set up some portable panels I made last year, and demonstrated why you should be really careful when installing electrical devices.
Took me 2 weeks to finish, and it was totally worth it, back in the Ham now, gonna polish the rig up and see if I can make some money before I head to the mountains.
I will be damned if this thing does not work like it came from a factory?
This is my second lift that I have designed on a bus, but I am having more trouble than usual. I will figure it out, but I am wondering what resources are out there in the wild. What suggestions do you have?
Added freshwater and grey water tanks under the bus today, and I am ready to start running the plumbing. Hopefully should be ready to roll out in 2-3 weeks, but will I have any gas money?
I have been down this road before, so the process went pretty quickly. Surprising how smoothly the process can go when you have the confidence and experience – trial and error zaps your time and energy quickly.
And I finished most of the kitchen and office structure, along with the closet. Finishing them off in the next couple of weeks, with the rest of the bus. Although I could have gotten SOOO much more done, had I not run into so many obstacles(truck brakes, running out of supplies, etc.) I am very pleased with what I have accomplished in the last 10 days.
I have not found anything “special” about this town, and yet it has been home for almost a week. I stopped here last year, while it was raining, and the views were impressive. The weather has been fantastic, although the bus heats up a good bit by 4pm, and does not start to cool till after dark – too bad my bike has been crapped out. The list of things that have broken in the last 2 weeks should impress most folks:
- Bus would not crank, and smoked when it did [resolved?]
- Bike overheated and blew fuses/died [resolved?]
- Phone died [resolved]
- Solar power system melted [resolved]
- Health issues [resolved]
I guess it was a good thing I did not have a plane ticket in my pocket? Funny, it seems I have been dealing with these issues by laughing at the oddity, and feeling “things could be much worse”. It seems to work, as most times I simply need to work my way thru the issues, and I either resolve them, or they resolve themselves. Now, let us get back to our previously scheduled adventure?
Made it back over into central Colorado after leaving Denver yesterday. The bus did not like the first mountains yesterday, nor today. It did not want to start this morning, and it gave me a fright trying to get back on the road. Hopefully, coming down the mountains, after coming up them again this afternoon, gave it a chance to cool off, so maybe tomorrow will be better. The bike is running, and that is the main thing
