By the time Mardi Gras ended, we were pretty much ready to move on from New Orleans. Besides, the vintage bus project needed some serious attention, since the California mechanic was NOT working out*. 

Luckily, some helpful folks on my "bus nut" forums stepped in and recommended George Fields, a fabricator and mechanic located outside of Fort Worth, TX. We drove from Louisiana to Texas and after meeting with him I knew he was the right guy for the job. The next step was getting the vintage bus shipped 1,300 miles to Fort Worth. (no biggie, right?)

I'm not going to go into detail here, because I posted the whole story, with lots of photos, on the Creative Cruiser website, which is dedicated completely to this project. Karen also made a video of the vintage bus' arrival in TX, which you can see HERE. So now, the two busses are spending a week together while we head to Florida for Photoshop World.

*"Not working out" would be putting it very nicely, as you'll read on the Creative Cruiser progress page.
