When I’m feeling blue, I try to lively up…

When I’m feeling blue, I try to lively up by spreading a barrage of happy comments around the Internet. I think of these as tasty morsels of digital dim sum.

With my life stuck in low gear, I revel in the successes and creations of my friends.

With low gear, I should be able to climb mountains (metaphorically of course) but so far, I haven’t even made it out of bed.

Also, when I’m blue… I daydream of idyllic road trips in a bus, growing my beard and singing songs with friends.

Earthship VW Bus Rolls on …

Lowdown: Parked in the ‘back 40’ of my Grandma’s house at 456W 200S, Logan, UT . Go around the barn tothe back area to check it out. It is the big tall blue and white dome bus – well appointed with stickers.

Details: 1974 VW bus with full dome with sleeping and storage up top. Custom insulation, wood panels and bed/cupboard set-up within. 1800cc engine (rebuilt years ago – maybe 1987), Weber progressive carburetor and replaced transmission about 1992.

Story: The “Earthship” has sat since 1993 when I drove it from Vancouver and parked her before going to Japan the second time. The first 4 years were in inside storage shed. In 1996, I started it (without jumping) and drove it to where she sits. Mechanically the bus needs work but inside it dry and in goodshape. The body is mostly rust free (a few scrapes which were sprayed over a few years back). Though the hoses are cracked and tires flattened, it isn’t in much different shape from when I last drove it.

Deal: Since I have to move it out of Granny’s yard and am planning to go to law school somewhere soon, I wish to sell it as-is/where-is for $420. I will come down to haul out any personal belongings and exchange the title. Bear in mind these full dome buses are rare and in good shape have a $3-6,000 market price on eBay.

Bonus: I will leave any spare parts and a copy of the “Idiots Guide to VW” plus the official factory service manual with knowledge on everything from fuses to overhauls. There are even baskets of mountain bike parts and whatnot and a few paintings which may come along with the deal ;-)

Story: I am (admittedly) a bit blue about passing the bus along as I have a heavy emotional investment so to speak. I bought it in 1986 and rolled throughout USA, Canada and Mexico in that van. Slept hundreds of nights while going to University of Utah, dozens on Grateful Dead parking lots, fat tire festivals, held hostage at gunpoint in New Mexico, rolling from east coast metropolises to deep into canyonlands, across prairies, Baja beaches … well you get the idea. I had always planned to fix it up again and again roll on down the road but alas I must deed further adventures to a new captain.

Solid work sharing security on transit pic @kk – as a daily #trasnlink rider, i felt safer & more comfy before the step-up w/ guns, tasers

While i admire your use of Twitter @TransitPolice i’m frustrated that besides cameras, crowds & inconvenience, i’m subject to inspections

My observations show that intelligence & discretion alleviate problems better than show of force by intimidating uniforms @TransitPolice
