Bus Final Preparations

The last 2 days have been hectic. The boys have been fiercely slaving away, trying to get the bus ready for the big ship off to the mother land. The roof rack has been put away, spare parts have been loaded on the bus, and the stereo system has been installed (wired anyway), thanks to Rod, who might as well be a member of the team, for all the help and assistance he's provided. We never did get any work done on the engine, but we have sound, which might be just as important as good hoses and belts, come to think of it.
I've heard (no pun intended) that the sound system is awesome, and there's plenty of power to blow the socks off of any nomads we might pass in the desert while listening to the tunes. Now the problem's going to be figuring out who gets to pick the music. I have a sneaking suspicion that there's limited overlap in our team's tastes. Showtunes or Galactic? Christmas music or Metallica? Cher or the Funky Meters? Oh well, at least we won't run out of things to talk about.

We got some cup holders installed near the driver, too, thank god. I was getting tired of trying to drive and hold a cup of coffee between my legs at the same time. This is going to be a life-saver (assuming we're moving).

Today started early - the guys drove the bus up to Baltimore in the early morning. Here's a picture of Scott filming the bus moving.
