Those dudes are buffed, that's gotta be how the pachyderm was loaded... not with tranquilizers, but into the bed. Laughing

So, this is not a huge load but it is 3/4 ton of firewood and furniture. A 4000 lb bus drives differently than an empty one, especially on corners. My impression as I started the trip was that it understeers big time. Braking takes longer too. We took the load up a rainy two-lane road to a cottage and dropped it off. An hour into the drive, the extra weight seemed normal. Depends what you are used to, I guess. Probably some Westies have that weight on all the time.

Three more loads to go before we empty his garage of 25 year old firewood.

How much weight is that?

My son helped me out when they 'felled' a tree across the street earlier in the month... all this wood was wet, and very heavy... but I finally had an oportunity to drive my Westy. It's been a minute since I've been able to do so, but I have posted more pictures in my Gallery. Wink

Shit happens.

No photos, but I used to fill my 65 bus up to the ceiling with craft stuff, wooden beads, macrame rope, etc, etc. and haul it from L.A. to the Saugus Swap meet twice every weekend for 3 years. Circa 1979-1981.
