Despite the heat this week, bus work began in earnest. John tackled the project of putting on our bus muffler. We never posted about it on the blog, but the Lord protected us from losing the muffler on the last trip. We ended up having to take it off somewhere on our way to Niagara Falls, and we definitely sounded like one loud bus/truck after that. We so glad to have that muffler back on. It was very difficult to reattach and install new supports, but John persevered, and it’s now in place!
Next project: a few weeks ago, John discovered two main support for the tag axle (the last axle) had rusted through. We are grateful for the welding experience the Lord has given Dad and John although fixing this will be beyond their current abilities. It’s going to be a process to fix, but with the Lord’s help, we should be able to get it done. We’ll be sure to document the process with pictures!
There has already been some success. A broken toilet modified (turns out is was defective from the factory) and an electrical challenge that the Lord provided the answer to. We hope to have real blinds soon as even with air conditioning it gets quite warm up front. The blinds should help in keeping the sun out and since we’re traveling west and south this fall, that is important. In the midst of this, sewing is about to begin for the wedding. 🙂
