Lucky is all ready for the trip to begin! After two and a half weeks it looks like we are finally ready to start some shake-down trips to see if there are any last minute issues that might pop up. The details in the interior are almost complete, we finally got through the red tape of registering (taging) the coach, and the new Honda generator is finally stuffed into the compartment where the old stock generator lived for 40 years. We've ferreted out some electrical issues, got the television and stereo systems up and running, and got some fancy LED lights to light up the exterior and interior.
It was now time to "fill er up" and Lucky is there to make sure everything was done correctly. Both of the dogs (Poncho and Lucky) just love sitting in the passenger seat looking out at everything as it goes by. Today we did a short 10 mile round trip, and so far everything is working as it should. we stopped at the gas station, and it wasn't 5 minutes before someone said to me "that sure is a beautiful vehicle, what year is it" He couldn't believe it was nearly 40 years old! Engine is purring nicely, and the brakes work great. Tomorrow we should be able to get the final bugs out of the generator, seat belts go back in, and a couple of last minute trim items need to go into the interior.
It's been a long time coming, but my trip is now actually about to begin, and Lucky can't wait!
