Well we got the old bus out of the backyard the other day and decided to go on a trip. It was a little bit cranky and did not want to start, but that is most likely because it has been sitting so long, really don’t think it had anything to do with the batteries.
Most of the tires, when I kicked them, seemed like they were alright, and they look good for twelve years old. Talked it over with the little woman and we decided to hold it down to about fifty and do a lot of driving after dark.
It was a little low on oil, so I dumped 17 gallons of Rottella in it, come up real good on the stick, but it might be a tad bit too full. Figure the slobber tube will take care of the excess and stop some of the fender rust on the tow car at the same time.
We had a mockingbird nesting in the drivers side mirror and we evicted her, but in the process, broke out our blindspot mirror. But as we are gonna be driving in the slow-poke lane and will always be in the curb side position and not the smart alleck lane, it should be okay. We are going to stop every night at Chick Fillet and campout.
One of our AC units doesn’t have a shroud, and the other one is now home to a colony of north of the border African Killer bees, so we are just going to try and blow ‘em out as we go along.
Our problem is, “where do we get the old bus washed?” with our new custom creation exterior body treatment the wife and her girlfriends put together last winter, it is going to present a problem. (Hey it was cheaper than a $2,000 paint job ... don't knock it)
We figure we might try the Beacon Truckwash first, and if the boys don’t laugh us out of the wash bay, we will blow dry it on Interstate Forty on our way to the Grand Canyon and then onto Cliffords house for a brew.
Wish us luck.
