Since we all work during the week, weekends are when most of the work gets done, but we did squeak in some cleaning mid-week with the help of my friend Catherine and my daughter Tiffany 🙂
This morning I went up to Lowe’s and picked up a quart of paint to cover the back 1/4 of the bus, since the plan is to have the floor in back there and the bed platform built tomorrow. So I wanted to have the walls painted before hand.
So a new update tomorrow or Monday. I am also working on doing an expense post, since so many people have asked me. I hope everyone else is having as fabulous a weekend as I am!
I woke up after a wonderful sleep in an Airbnb house this morning. And called Mr. Walsh at the Culpeper school transportation depot and he came and picked me up.
The bus had been serviced and filled up. And after we did our paperwork he took me out and walked me through some of the special things on the bus. She looks fantastic! Besides four spots that need to be puttied up her body is in excellent condition. He gave me a quick lesson in how to use the airbrakes and then have me demonstrate that I knew how to use them.
I got on the road and headed east towards I 95. And met a friend of mine, Mary, who I’ve known via the Internet for more than 15 years. And then I got on I 95 south in Virginia and headed home.
I stopped for a complete fill up before leaving Virginia because the gas was so much cheaper than North Carolina. The truckers at the truckstop were really awesome helping me figure out the diesel pump and I checked the fluids and all were OK.
I’ve made it as far is Selma, North Carolina. I’ll get up early in the morning and continue my journey home.
So, everything is in place to go pick up the bus! Flying out of West Palm in the morning into D.C. and then the subway to Union Station then a train out to Virginia.
AirBnB overnight and then pick up the bus on Monday morning. I am super excited!
I’ll post an update from the road on Monday evening. Can’t wait to see her…
