Well, we may have to skip a year, Colin.

Bluebird will be undergoing body surgery this summer in Denver, starting in June. That's the plan, anyway. And, with the exception of the oil gallery plug incident which has just come to resolution, everything else is running fine.

You do need to catch up with Mr Sweet and Bussy sometime though. That bus needs some adjustment. Bussy is currently here in Los Alamos, FWIW.

I will drive by your house slowly, like those Orkin pesticide ads, on my way to the Bowers. Please tell them that they have a $300.00 credit, and I need their List.
Then I will drive slowly past your house again.

Hello shawnhigh,

Do not fire off a PayPal until we have an actual date set up. Then your PayPal payment becomes our legal contract. Do send me a PM with your model year, your list of concerns, your work environment, and your dreams for your bus.

Sign me up when you figure out when you are heading this way. I have been spoiled by having an IAC visit at the end of mud season and the beginning of the spring/summer driving season. I have more than vent windows planned for this year. Maybe I will have it all done by the time you get around to the Northeast. :scratch:

Maybe we can do a heater/defroster/locks/undercarriage prep enhancement just before the fall season hits,
then sit back in the Adirondack chairs with a spiked cider and ponder the future . . .
of pork belly contracts.

For the past two years you have made remarks about the center pin bushing. So, I am thinking at the moment that's where the focus might be. If you recall from last year's door dismantlement, my locks have been bastardized by the PO's keyless entry hack. Heater defroster prep would be nice though.

I have sadly given up the grand sweeping vistas of the Battenkill Valley. I am now a forest dweller residing in a more manageable and equally less impressive swinging space age bachelor ranch in Manchester, VT. It does have a nice 2 car garage in case the weather is uncooperative.

We can still sit on the porch and mull over the vegan alternative of tofu futures (soybean) with a mug of fortified cider....

PMs, people. I need your PMs with your hopes and your dreams and your highest aspirations. . . so we can begin to knock them out.

If you happen to be passing thru the Seattle area drop me a PM. I'll have some diet coke on hand and the Mrs. will have some japanese food for the hungry in need of a break. I'm just off the 405 near Boeing. Travel safe.

Put me down for a day.
Looks like August, hopefully the weather will be better for you.

I don't know what we'll tackle yet, but I'll be working on my list.
