What did I do to MY (skoolie) bus today... so far nothing. YESTERDAY I scraped pounds of butyl and silicone caulk out of the old window frames and I'm still not finished... I've got a total of 30 windows plus the drivers window to remove, clean, recaulk, paint the bus part of the frame and pick-n-choose which windows will be kept and which will be sheeted over with metal before replacing in the bus. I loathe silicone caulk and butyl. But it's better than dealing with all the rust we had on our Eagle05!

While sitting in the RV lot of the Albq. Balloon Fiesta we talked to window screen /cover folks and they are now about done doing the window and front 2 side windows. Can tell a diff. already. Now we can pull the Refletix out of the windshield. YEA.

Waxed both sides getting ready to leave on Thursday for the Blue Bird rally. Will do both ends tomorrow. Finished the wheels a few days ago.

Sure hope the weather is nice when we leave. Hate running through mud puddles before we even get out of the park.

Life without Reflectix... INCONCEIVABLE! :lol::P

We have had the Alum. foil look in the front widshield since Jan of this year. Today we could enjoy the one way look. Had to remember to hang the curtains this PM when we returned from the fireworks on the final Sat. eve of Balloon Fiesta. Small price for the seemingly larger home. Light does wonders for space. We are up early in the AM to crew for a balloon.

Aprilwhine, way to go on the Prevost. Pics please.

This Pm we are (or will be) packing and securing for a travel day tommorrow. We have been in Albq. for the Balloon Fiesta for the past 2 weeks. Yes 100 gallons of water can get us through. Did get a pump out yesterday so we know more about that end of the system than we did before. Headed to T or C NM to pick up the mail forwarded from SD, and then to the Hot springs to get over these work days. Plans now are to head to SE AZ till mid Nov. then back to Ks for a farm auction and the GK Christmas programs etc. THEN back to AZ so we will not need the nice new coats we got for Vol. @ ALBF. It is amazing how much stuff we get out and have to repack in 2 weeks.

I'd hang on to those coats.. it sure cooled off last night here in Socorro! And we are an hour south of you... or an hour north depending on where you are! :( I just glad we cleaned up the furnace yesterday so that it's ready to go.

Here's a few pictures of the new (to us) bus:

 

Hmmmmmm 13 years new.... Might night not be able to get into some parks :rolleyes: All kidding aside; fantastic looking unit. Best of luck and safe travels. Just remember to take your shoes off outside!

We just finished up with the last of three bus rallies, and I'm pooped, need a vacation! :mellow:

 

Actually we bought two new to us Flexsteel captains chairs with six way power and lumbar at Colaws near Carthage MO. I got the co pilot in and wired up, Becky has a happy fanny now! Her old chair has a new owner, so we didn't have to dump it. I'll wait to install mine after we get back to Abilene. Removing the air ride and getting a pedestal to mount the new one on.

 

The old ones just didn't match our interior, so MDW said lets get some! That's why I love her so much, she was reading my mind! :-D

You're right Juggernaut, and it doesn't have full body paint either. Guess we'll just have to live with the shame of it all. :P

Well, No full body paint and 13 yrs old! Guess you just have to keep off over in the corner all by yourself... Don't want you bringing down the value of my RV!!! :lol::P

 

This is my current RV

And this is our future RV (both pics taken in Tiftonia TN Wal-Mart parking lot on the way out west... the bus made a good, cheap moving van.. now we will "recycle" it)

Many years ago, the Fuzzy Hubby built a skoolie. I think that was his favorite RV of all time. He still lurks on the skoolie net.

What a BEAUTIFUL Prevost. Love the interior colors.

David and Lorna back in the '80s we had a 1957 GMC sckoolie with a 389 Pontiac that we used to haul a Sand Toys Sand Dancer 4 buggy in. that was our first "tin tent".

Jan. 21,22 & 23. A combined bus rally @ Quartszite, Ya'll come now, ya hear.

All we did to our bus today was run some fuel thru her getting back to TorC NM. We had used a 1/2 tank of fuel running the generator @ The Balloon Fiesta.

Headed for Sierra Vista AZ on Wed we think. Time will tell.
