I'm in Boston for a wedding on Sunday. I'll be only 10 miles away. Maybe i can sneak out in the early morning for a visit.

Was a good time once I stopped worrying about the bus...
Which didn't disappoint in its new tradition of dying on every trip so far this year.
Got it started again and didn't have any issue on the way home. Its missing somewhere and has a dead spot. Couldn't get (what felt like) full throttle despite the throttle being able to fully open when done by hand. Car didn't want to go past 50 most of the trip back.
The campout was awesome as ever, and the morning cruise was great. It is awesome to look back and see a line of buses and vans trucking down the road. The show had rain for like two hours, but I wasn't there for the show really. I just like going to Salem and camping. The swap stunk.

It's listed, it won't go.
My mom thinks I'm nuts and says I should just park it until we can deal wth it. But it hasn't not died on a single trip this year. I'm getting very tired. I have the prettiest bus and it's the most temperamental to boot.

It can be as "pretty" as you want but it doesn't change the fact that it's 40 years old. These ups and downs are part of the deal.

Sure, I think Mike accepts that. I think a lot of his frustration is that he has sunk a ton of money and time into it this year and he really is not much, if any, better off than when he started. I would be pretty upset too.

It sucks to be afraid of using your bus.
