I look forward to it and am going to start saving up for it right now! Even with impending, rampant inflation I'm confident I'll have enough by next summer. I have no doubt Little Train ('70 sunroof transporter) and Shebus ('77 reef blue with a sweet rack) are in as well so plan on a day or three here if you're of a mind. Mid-July in Montana is pretty tasty. Bumblebus needs an expert of your caliber if it's going to last me until I'm senile & delusional & thinking I can still drive around a 75yr old vehicle.

Safe journeys.

What great burden lifted, the moisture, the dripping, the gushing, the humidity, the torrents, the muddy squishing wet soggy waterous gray liquid leaking puddlous invasive rainrainrain slicked slobber, when I finally . . . outran it.

Not only is it a time machine - it's bigger on the inside.

Colin is the Doctor. And the BobD looks like this on the inside:

Image
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue, I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace. Where never lark, or even eagle flew. And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod, The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

You know, I noticed that too when I took a "seat" in the "BobD".

Had a great visit with Colin today. I'll post a write-up when my brain returns to a normal consistency.

Safe travels, Cyclone Joe. It was great having Mike with me for a couple of days VIA his bus. Thanks, it meant a lot.

Odd shuttle day, 69 and 70 bus north to PJs (thank you again for the preserves!), 69 back to Portland, then 79 back to PJs to transfer tools (and lots of wig heads for some reason). It was the first time I followed my bus on the highway, strange experience. It looks kinda dorky from behind on the road. But compared to the Bookwus whateveryacallit, I think mine runs better. I'm sure that will no longer be the case by the end of the itinerary...

Ruptured duck noises I've never heard from Bertha thankfully.

But yes, I enjoyed the day, discovering a bit of human foilable Bookwus and we all share. Reassuring in some regards. and if I could just find a card reader, I could get some photos up. Very Ninja. Much communication was had with Bookwus.
