I've officially been gone from Seattle since dec 27th, but I just this morning finally started heading towards Florida in Maisy. I'm going to do any work I can along the way to find gas, and see where I end up.

If anyone between Kansas and Florida and anywhere for that matter has work needed done (anything cars, plumbing, electrical, lifting, cleaning, painting, organizing, or whatever) let me know and I'll head out your way!

Wanna come to northern New Mexico and strip all the bedliner off the bed of a single cab? It's just one of those jobs I've been putting off. PM me if you like.

Sweeeeeeeet, you got the bus back (which I saw in your other thread already but didn't comment, sorry Wink )!!

Hope the trip goes well, did you already go all the way to Kansas? Dude, take it easy on Maisy, she's not the Passat Razz

Sounds like a fun trip! If you are in Kansas then you'll probably end up in Nashville. I'm on the east side if you need a parking spot, power, tools or want to grab a beer hit me up!

Safe travels!

I'll buy you a tank of gas if you can get my brakes to work, but you'll have to turn around and come back to Washington.

I'm in NW Iowa near Sioux Falls, SD. If you're nearby let me know! Always some work to do on the bus and always up for meeting other travelers.

When you get down here, the water in lake Okeechobee needs to be changed, and it's that time again for the manatee prostate examinations. Should put a couple of buck in your pocket.

If you take the lake job try not to piss off the gators. After all, it's their home and they were there first

Happy Trails - carry chains and test fit them when it is dry and warm - you may not need them but nothing worse than needing them and no one has any.

currently my budget is to get me to warm weather so if I don't find work I may not ever see snow again! HA!

...don't have my chains with me but hopefully I won't need any for a while

A part number would help. Also, you might be able to find an auto electric shop that can fix yours.

Hopefully it won't take you too long to get that alternator, I had one leave me stranded once, until i just bought a new battery and made it 600 miles on the charge.

What part of Florida? I am in Jacksonville for work.
