After many delays, the bus is finally (almost) ready for the big journey! We addressed the battery issue, repaired lights, tested out the new brake lines and installed six (!!!) new tires.
All of the tires that came with the bus was old and worn. The front driver side tire was best, but the passenger side tire had a budge that made the ride very bumpy. But no more!
My friend has helped me greatly by allowing me to use his garage and lift, but the most valuable gift has been his 15 year old son. He has a gift for learning. When he woke up this morning, he didn't have any clue how to replace tires, but after replacing six tires, he was getting them changed within 15 minutes!
The old tires were rusted on, so we had to use a tool for some assistance - I didn't realize what tool until there was a giant flame of fire!
At the end of the evening, it was very satisfying seeing a stack of six old tires, ready to be recycled.
We are picking the vehicle up tomorrow morning and we are going to pack it up for the trip. We are leaving the middle of next week, but we want to give this bus a good test run with all of our equipment loaded up and practice rearranging and setting up our cots and air mattresses for overnight.
Now it's on to the next big adventure!

Teach Your Children Liberty from Sin
We encourage parents to teach their children principles of Godliness, beginning with the Word and an understanding who God is and what His Son has done to form a relationship with us.
No one can lay a foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, or straw, his workmanship will be evident, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will prove the quality of each man’s work. 1 Corinthians 3:11-13
Teach Your children Liberty from Tyranny
Second to this is the principle of self-determination and freedom, lest we loose the ability to teach our children the first principle in future generations.
Our children read the Tuttle Twin books, specifically to learn libertarian principles, which most people learn later in life. These books are useful for our family, and yours, to teach children concepts that seem complicated, but are made simple in these books.
