This bus was given to us to use in Baja
to be able to cut hair anywhere at anytime!
Larry Attwood, Oly Wa. knew she had some life left to live and Greg Carras was kind enough to get her road ready (at the very last minute!) Mark Hoy, IMark Signs did some great lettering to cheer the exterior.
Leaving a day late for San Diego where my 19 yr old grandson and I were to pick up all 10 others
at the airport, knew we would have to do it in less than 2 days....at 50 mph and 8mpg.
I fell just 10 days before and broke my wrist so expected would be hard to shift and the help driving was great. Little did we know, in Sacramento, the power steering belt would break. THEN, two other belts fell off. (turns out it was for the air pump) Greg advises me long distance that it is best to park her permanently!
We exhausted the idea of #1 finding anyone who would tow a bus ..#2 where would we park it anyway...#3 what would we do with the tremendous load of product we had picked up at David's Salon in Albany Oregon #4 let alone anyone who would do anything after 5pm!!??!!??
I am used to mechanical miracles from so many interesting donated vehicles that when he sensed that God told him to
"GET IN THE BUS AND JUST DRIVE"!
Our prayer was answered and I was sure we exhausted all options and agreed we had nothing to lose....and now had only 15hours to get there at LESS than 50mph.
