Anyone know who is in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba? It looks like a MC8 with Alberta Plates, teal in color. Has been here for a coupe of days.

Incase anyone is interested I left a note on the door. A few hours later I got a call from Steve. I had the privelge of getting the grand tour. It is a MC8 and very very well done. He is a Arts professor and lives in the bus full time touring Canada and teaching, it also acts as his office.   Did I mention he lives in it full time in Canada? He is spending the next few months in Winnipeg,Mb where it will probably dip down to -40 at some point or another. Just thought I would share.

Darn!!

He was parked in Brandon here at the A&W along the TransCanada highway for a couple of (cold) days.....

I should have stopped, should have left a note, shoulda,shoulda,shoulda.......

Oh well, if I see it again, I'll stop next time for sure!

Hey Mark if you ever make it to Wpg , he'll be there for a few months. I have his number if you want it.
His system seems to work very well. I'm glad I haven't spent any money on a propane funaces yet.

You've got that right circusboy! I would describe it as just plain stupid cold, and not sure why we live here!
 I have since found 2 dry air webasto heaters and a coolant webasto heater for a resonable price right close to home so I will go purchace then this week-end and start with the install project. I can't get my bus in my shop so I guess it will be a slow process as I'll be working outside in these ridiculous temps.
