One more thing??...We are heading south from iowa, so any other info on camping in Georgia, KY, TN, Carolina's, that you've done would be great! We have about 4-5 days from last stop in FLA to get home and cool spots north of you that would be worth the stop...thanks again, CTB

ctb I'll message you when I get home, just throwing this up real fast.

I added a taillight on the mx hauler




I also added a few springs to keep the lines out of the door jams and tight around the corners.








I used some fence post hardware to hold the lines away from the exhaust and wrapped it with a bit of pool hose.


Fuel pump installed




Plumbing is all done, also added some mason jars with ties for easy access to stuff.


So awesome to have running water.... and hot none the less.


Added a mount for the ladder and a little tv tray.


Added some netting to hold stuff in the space.


I also got some seat covers. Kinda tacky over the leather, but with the dog sitting on it all the time and how dirty I get I figured it was a good idea. My mom finished up the windsheild cover too. Black fabric on the outside, you can't tell there's anything in the window. It just looks tinted.




So, I'm finally done "building" the van. I just need to finish up the wiring on the heaters and pack. I hope I don't jinx it, but I plan on departing Tuesday. The plan is to get to colorado quickly, while still seeing some stuff and making sure the dog is good.

My dad took it out to work today to get some shots of the VAB and shit. He put the camera on the ground for all of them so they all consist of 60% shadow and pavement and the bottom half of the building lol Oh well, I tried cropping the best I could.

The Vehicle Assembly Building that the Shuttle used to get mated to the SRB's and ET





The nose cone that's going in front of the Orion capsule.


The old OPF Orbiter Processing Facility, where Sproket used to work. They would do the tile repairs in here. Boeing bought it for the Orion project.

The hoses you have bundles running to the doors could benefit from some spiral wrap. It's cheap and easy to install and will do a good job of protecting those hoses from rub spots and general wear and tear.
