With something to fix when I got home.  Doesn't get any better than that!

Thanks to the paint shaker 4 cyl diesel and the beat up roads. I am constantly finding stress fatigued brackets and such on my little skoolie. My sharp eyed wife spotted one of the under the front fender driving lamps hanging by its wiring when we pulled into our camp site Thursday evening. Since the original 11" head lamps (despite the halogen bulbs) barely light the way 5' in front of the bus, the long range driving lamps are really a very necessary part of the equipment. Fortunately, moving the brackets to a bit more centralized location and re-welding them wasn't very difficult--but I'll keep an eye on them now.

By the way, the camp ground was at Lake Cachuma, Ca about 14 miles from Solvang, Ca. The weather was beautiful and the lake was nearly full. 'Twas the first time out for more than an overnight since Yosemite in May--I really need to get out more often. Jack

That's amazing! Last I heard Lake Cachuma was nearly empty.  What was the name of the campground?  Congratulations on the excellent weekend!

Kind Regards, Phil

What kind of bus do you have? Your profile doesn't say.

Ok Thanks. I recall that it was featured but I didn't remember which issue and forgot it had a 4 banger.
