Bus Update

While in Slidell I was interviewed on the bus by a couple of full timer RV media makers. This is the first time someone wanted to interview me about the project, I sure I will do better next time. Hopefully this couple will also become contributors to Mobile Broadcast News. You can watch the interview on their website LiveWorkDream

Jim & Rene are now in Truth or Consequences looking up my friends at Green Acre.

Cats & Dogs

skinnychef was finally able to find a good home for the 2 dogs and cat she had extras of. Dharma liked spending time in the bus with 2 humans and 2 dogs so much that after pissiung on my clothes bag decidided he would jump ship. He picked a really good neighborhood to do it in though; probably the neighborhood we'll be moving into, Holy Cross. After looking for him (and watching him run from us) for a couple hours, we decided to let him deal with life on the street for the evening. We returned the next night and left the bus door open. After a couple hours he waltzed in. skinn'ys now back in Texass, I'm wrapping up loose ends in NOLA and will head west Tuesday night.

Mud Stuck Bus

I tried to move the bus across the lot @ Bio Liberty today so I could fill up with oil & Biodiesel and head into NOLA for Mardis Gras and...
not so mobile broadcast newsBayou Liberty soil testing confirms large amounts of roots, water, clay, and 8 inches of mud under the grassroots. After several attempts to remove soil tester more soil testing was done and more clay and water were found. Reinforcements were called in. This is a not so mobile broad cast... Thats not news. (comments & photo by Gordon)

To appreciate the Depth of our soil testing; take a look at the mud flap resting on the ground behind the tire. Currently the bus is about 6 inches deeper than the photo with the tail pipe about 3 inches from the ground. It's been raining a little everyday since I've been here. Today was sunny and nice but tommorrow it's a 70-80% chance of rain. Wenches and a Bobcat are expected in the AM.
