Just an update I got from Kristin. Seems they are going to Lone Pine first and staying at Richard's (?) house who has a Crown for sale. They may buy that. But bad news is:

Ron said trani locked up between 1st and 2nd; wouldn't start without 4 batteries...got started -we have headlights, no turn signals and not sure about brake lights. Brakes in rear were already adjusted properly. Engine is purring along!

That's all relatively simple stuff, just a little hard to do on the road and without a little experience and help.

Got this email tonight from them:

We  are heading toward Shasta and either will go on I5 or head toward Klamath Falls, need to resolve latest issue first, with cooling.
I don't know why we can't get in to busnut site, yet.  Also, can;t seem to find old thread under our sign in.., sorry, could you help?
Much love, K and R



Ron and Kristin here, will update here to keep it all in order, then will start a new chapter with our user name, Maria V after it gets approved, as it is not at this point.
Last day at Mother Teresa's...installed ground cable from batteries to ground cable on engine~ seems to work perfectly.  Tried to flush black tank, valve broke off in Kristin's hand..rebuilt hookup. First nite out, went to back to Walmart!  left first thing in am, stopped for fuel, trans locked up btween 1st and 2nd, worked out fine once figured out, rest of drive went well. Next day, latch broke on door; Next day, all ran well except for latch on door has now siezed and we spent couple hours trying to get out.  Next am, couple hours taking lock apart.  Went to start, bus acted like it was out of fuel. Resolved with no clue as to cause.  Drove 150 miles (now at Shasta area), buzzer went off and temps began to rise. Parked in McCloud waiting for it to cool.  Still heading north..?
Want to thank you all for such support, we have a feeling we are done..please come visit in Alaska, (or wherever we end up!) We still may be storing somewhere and flying home.

There is a pattern emerging, they can't get registered at either bus board?

Wetware problem?

happy coaching!
