First camping trip with the bus...

Finally got my bus registered..after having to get it weighed...and took it down to a local State campground for the weekend..It rode very smooth with only a few little minor glitches..We've gotton as far as having a toilet and plumbing installed and the batroom walls roughed in. My grand daughter stayed with us and we had a great time. I made big steak and cheese subs friday night. Took a loaf of itialan bread, hollowed it out and filled it with thin sliced rib eye, cheese, lettuce, tomato's and onions. Sliced and served. Drank a few beers and a lot of kamikaze's.

Used my new knife sleve/carry thingie I got as a gift (thanks Dave) to haul my knives and a few other tools..it worked awesome !


The obligatory tacky palm trees on our campsite..


It was sunny on Saturday..windy as hell though..poured rain Sunday when we packed up to leave..

Nice bus. Those palm trees could use a pink flamingo.

I'll bet when you pulled in the other campers thought you were the Work-Release Bus from the Buffalo Correctional Facility.

Looking good John!!!
