Still no Red Beard. He’s held up in customs.
We’re adapting to floating among the spare bedrooms of family and friends. When the vehicle gets out of the port, at least we’ll have our own place.
Until then, I’m making parts lists and figuring out what projects to do on the bus to prep it for the next adventure. Welding will be required.
I’ve been unsuccessfully searching for a replacement jalousie screen frame with no luck. I’d appreciate any leads (or a way to repair it).
When clearing everything out in Colombia, I found lots more rust and mold. The past year on the humid Atlantic coast and Amazon seemed to be the roughest one yet on the bus. I guess I can no longer call it a ‘California car’.
Oh – and money. We have to work on that part too. None of this was free (okay, some of it was). We may finally seek out some sponsors, accept advertising, etc. We’ve started down this path before, but never really followed through with it, so we’ll see. A few advertising experiments may be coming. If we can pay for shipping the bus with a few paid posts then we should probably to do it. We promise it won’t be too obnoxious.
