New bus pictures...

Well, it's almost that time again. Here are a few pictures of the bus with the new AC on top, reconfigured inside (which looks packed but most of the containers are empty), stickers on the back, and a shot of some of the stickers to be added. (We can always use more, hint, hint!)

More changes...

We put a rooftop AC unit in this year. With more people on the bus, we needed something more efficient than the "whole room" household AC we were using. It took up space on a bunk, and was also just barely adequate when the temp went into the upper 90's.

Here's how we got the unit onto the roof:
Totally legit, right?

I'll skip the trials and tribulations. Here's a shot showing the AC installed, and the bus in it's "exploded" state, waiting to be repacked.

Improvements this year

We're frantically working to get the bus ready for this year's trip. After the usual "we will do NOTHING to it this year" oath, we promptly ripped out all the seats and built new storage, reconfigured the seating, and cut a 14" square hole in the roof in the back for a roof AC. Here's some pictures. Send stickers!

Tada! A post!

Every year we get back from the Burn and a promise myself that I will update the blog and post pictures and blah blah blah, and every year I totally don't do any of that. Instead, we empty Philip, wash him fairly thoroughly, then I park him in the back yard and go do other stuff for about 6 or 7 months. Right about now The Swordfish and I start thinking about upgrades. We're slightly ahead of schedule this year because we've already removed all the old seats and junk in order to reconfigure the inside of the bus for more harmonious ridership and a lot more reasonable storage. 

What does that mean to you? Absolutely nothing at the moment. Eventually I'll post some pictures of the reconfiguration and new stickers and such, but in the meantime SEND US STICKERS. HALP.
