When you head that way down the road, make sure you hit me up. That would be a great place to hang out and camp for a weekend up on top of the mountains between Jarbidge and Charleston.
Will do- our first trip is going to be Carlsbad Caverns this summer, my wife and kids have never been there which is unacceptable for NM natives. Got a lot of work yet before I'll trust this old rig for such a trip with such precious cargo, but I trust she'll get there soon enough.
Along that line, there is- I guess- a little build for the build thread- I've got another big project going that's absorbing my time and I had to rebuild my pellet stove, but I did get some work done on the bus: I replace the starter solenoid, sanded and primed my battery box (I intend to paint the engine compartment as a whole at some point as I can't stand seeing any school bus yellow- it screams "half-Azzed" to me), new battery mounting bracket, and I replaced all my battery, starter, and grounding cables with new 2guage this weekend.
Didn't do a great job of photo documenting as it started snowing on me and I already had the flu.
Cables are done, and done right, also have auxiliary power terminal bus-bars on order, and will be mounting them up on the driver's side firewall to accommodate any future wiring from the starter battery (ultimately I'll have a house battery, solar panels, and CTek D250s charger controller, and an auxiliary fuse box somewhere in the bus), and my winch will be tied into the battery with triple-ott cable. In retrospect, double-ott should have been plenty, but I've already purchased the cable.
