This is the donor Astro van which has a low mileage crate TBI 350 swaped into it.I will attempt to dolly tow it back from Cinni to Roch on Monday.The engine/ tranny(after we rebuild the tranny)will be installed in Ole Yellar.

Had a pretty good work day today on scraping off the ceiling today.I got it down to about 1/16th of it to do.My next step will be to do the cut-outs for a skylight over the bathroom and a fantanic vent.I left material around the roof A/C to hold that in place until I am ready to do the resealing on the roof and around the crank for the TV anntena.I found another area that was rotten near the drivers seat.All and all I am glad I did this to make it easier to I.D. problem areas on the roof.

But it's better to fix it right than to just patch at it and end up with a bigger (and more costly) mess not too far in the future. And it's a little difficult to make repairs in a campground (so many frown on it). That's why we are taking the time this summer to finish working on our Class C while it's parked here at my Mom's. And we are upgrading a few things that are needed for our big trip out to NM (like holding tanks and insulation!!... and insulated holding tanks ). If the weather holds out being nice, I'm hoping to get the cherry flooring planed down this week. We have a small stockpile of unfinished #1 cherry flooring that will just cover the floor. But it's too thick and heavy, so we have to run it thru the planer to make it loose a little weight. And I have to rework one of my knock-down storage boxes that I built into an insulated box for my water filters (unfortunately it's the big box not the little box). The temporary box that I duct taped together this past winter won't last too much longer (Red Green would have been proud!). So much to do.... so little time! :P

Glad to see you are back at it. I hope you have good luck and weather to finish up quickly.

I know how bad weather can really set you back. if I had had typical weather around here I would have been working about a month sooner than I did.

Have you thought about hiring someone to drive a van & trailer down while you drive the Rv and a trailer down? Then send them back by some other means (plane, train or bus?). Would it be cheaper than the gas?
