We don't live up there but we just came through there last week. We were up in Seattle for a trade show. There are quite a few bus nuts up that way. I know some up around Seattle.  We stopped and met JohnEd in Eugene on the way home. There are others who I am sure will chime in when the log on and see the post.

About 25 miles South of Spokane. PD4107 in the works.  Converted 1968 GMC ex WSU bus for 10 plus years. 

There was a gathering of Canadian Busnuts about ten miles from us but I didn't hear about it until after it was over.

There is a gathering in NW Oregon each year.  Went a couple years ago.  Nice group.

I'm outside Grants Pass, but I did a very foolish thing and sold my '74 Crown Super Coach Bus Conversion in progress, sosssss now I'm busless.

But...like all fun wholesome infectious diseases for which there is no known cure, I got the bug again and am looking for another Crown.  HB of CJ :) :) :)

HB,

Strange that it does not make a difference whether one is buying or selling a bus; one feels foolish either way.

I am in Kingston, WA; NW of Seattle and across Puget Sound.
I am converting a 1991 Neoplan Cityliner.
You are just north of one of the big annual bus events at the Polk County Fairgrounds.

The 2009 Bus'n Usa rally will be June 24th-29th at the Polk County Fairgrounds in Rickreall Ore.  Good place to see a lot of buses.  We spend our summers just east of Seattle, (working >:( ) and the rest of the year in Yuma playing ;D

Hi,

I am located in Vancouver, WA. and I purchased a MCI 102 about two months ago to convert. I am currently in the planning phase and will get started on the bus in late spring.

I have had the bus out every weekend and plan on driving it periodically through the winter. I would be interested in meeting anyone in the Northwest who either has a bus or is working on a bus.

I am originally from the Mojave Desert and I would also like to meet Clifford and some of the others from that area.

I used to live in Salem, my folks still do. I visit them when I come up to work at the home office in Vancouver WA. Actually I work with Doug1968 when I go up there. Would be good to meet you and swap lies next time I'm up. ;)

Good Luck on your bus hunt, it'll be a fun search.

Happy Trails,

Paul
