The ownership support on this board is my favorite thing about the Wanderlodge!

Unexpected favorite and least favorite thing is that every time I fuel up, arrive, or am packing up to leave a campground someone wants to play 20 questions with me. Didn't expect to get this much attention in a 20 year old bus.

So, Dave when time allows you answer this question what was more challenging the walk or renovation or will the answer be revealed at WOG
Al, The 2,193 official miles of the AT during my year (plus the 8.8 miles of trail to get to the official southern terminus and the additional 5 miles it took to get off the trail) was really not that difficult. I woke up every day, packed up my gear and went for a hike. When I decided to stop for the day, I stopped. The renovation was much more grueling in my opinion. First, every thing had to be cleaned and then disassembled. Gutting a Wanderlodge is not for the faint of heart. As I was able to procure oem materials the job became easier to stomach. Now that I actually think about it, the renovation wasn't "too" difficult. I was able to take things apart, see how they were built, and then build an exact replica. When I wanted to stop for they day, I stopped.

Would I hike the AT again? Absolutely. I am already hoping to start planning a hike of the PCT (Pacific Crest Trail) 2,600 miles and maybe the Florida Trail, Over 1400 miles.

Would I gut another Wanderlodge? Absolutely. I am looking for another suitable coach right now. I am also considering buying a seated MCI or Prevost and building it from the ground up.

I forgot to mention that! My wife likes to ride so I have a bike too. After 20 miles or so, I am DONE! I couldn't imagine sitting in the saddle for 200+ miles.

It was the S.T.P. Seattle to Portland Bike ride . It's actually 204 miles but we had a 1 mile ride to the start line . Prior to the STP I had done 8 century rides all over the U.S.A. my goal was to do one in every state . All that came to a holt in 2020 . Like anything else you build up to the goal . Now i struggle to ride 25 miles lol

Default Meanwhile, back on the subject…

I like that mine LOOKS like a proper Bluebird. I also like that I don’t have a fortune in and yet, it is as dependable and solid as it was the day it rolled out of Ft Valley.
Would I like to have a mid-door LXI (did they even make one?) with slides and shiny paint? Probably. Do I need one? Negatory.

What I would never want to give up is my WOG family. You are the best!
