Because my older brother Josh is doing a YouTube series which is also called “How to Build a Bus”, I decided to change the name of my own saga to “Building a Bus”. The video above was the easiest way to get everything into one place, and include the short video clips you saw. All of that is a taste of what’s been going on. I haven’t had my phone around to catch everything we’re doing on video or in pictures, but there has been a lot more going on than what you see.
Some of the things you haven’t seen are what’s been done under and over the bus. On the top, myself and Josh laid down strips of seal tape for insulation along the entire outer edge to guard against leaks. Beneath the bus we built a wooden housing case for the massive tanks that will go under it. The front two cabinets have been cleaned out and in the first one is all of our sound equipment and product, (it was a tight fit, but thankfully I’m good at puzzles). The second cabinet holds the majority of our worldly possessions.
We returned the trailer that we had borrowed to haul all of our stuff around while we were in between buses, so the stuff had to go somewhere. We thought about setting it inside the bus, but having to move it out every time we wanted to work was not a pleasant thought. Even though we returned the trailer, we are still traveling in The Flash, our Ford Expedition, and the bus tags along behind.
It’s a lot of work, and we keep running into little road blocks, but it’s coming along and hopefully will be done sooner than we think.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
As always, thanks for reading, and watching.
