it was my first rally and my most memorable one. the highlight to the whole thing was being parked next to NCBob and Floridacliff and their families, what a wonderful introduction to the world of busnuts,

Hey Cody,

That was probably one of the best times I have ever had at Bussin, It took two days for my guts to stop hurting from all the laughing and I really enjoyed the fellowship and all the great "potluck" lunches.

Unfortunately this year, I ended up stealing the days I was going to Bussin to deal with other issues, so I am at work instead of relaxing in Arcadia.   Next year for sure..........


Have FUN everyone.......only two hours away and soooooooo jealous.........

I'm  here at Arcadia - Wife had to work - The pricing here is based on 2 people per coach (Unfortunately it's always been that  - I've come alone but paid for two people 5 years in a row - wife was only able to made it to two rallies -
sooooo
When you get here - look me up - come as my guest (your already paid for) - Plus you can bunk with me - if you don't mind an RTS BUS CONVERSION
You get the coach !!

Pete thank you so much for the use of you couch/coach. I greatly appreciated it.

John & Lidia,
Sorry you and everyone else that couldn't make it, missed it!

This was my first time to Jack & Paula's rally and I had a blast!
I didn't make it out to see near enough of the buses here. I tried but I kept running into folks who knew who I was and never made it past halfway of the first row!

But I met sooooooo many great people and had so much fun, it was just great not to be worrying about anything at all! (no bus problems, no drivers, no wrong parts, or cranky passengers, nothing, just meeting GREAT people seeing great buses and being WARM!

Thanks to Jack, Paula, Pete and everybody for a great time and all the hospitality! ;D

I really want to get there one of these years, but the $1,200 for fuel never seems to materialize.  It costs a ton of money to fly there with hotel and rental car cost.  It is tourist and hoilday season so everything is sky high.

At least by next year I should have working heat.

I see the Airstream was parked where you couldn't see it from the road ;D
It's all fun and games til someone gets hurt. ;)

I don't eat out, don't smoke, don't drink coffee nor alcohol.  Most of the things that all the money experts say are little things that can be cut to save money I already don't spend money on.  If I spent less money on the bus I could probably do it.

I just have to make it a priority.  I'll have to see if can the time off time.  My co-worker often takes time off between Christmas and New Year's.

Yeah, but I got to park next to a very nice Eagle, close to Pat's slightly modified Scenicruiser too!  ;D ;D ;D
Pat shared some interesting tips too . . .

Also parked nearby was Lou & Renea's Neoplan Spaceliner - I was fortunate enough to get to meet them too, so, I had the best parking spot I could have hoped for!  ;D

Actually it was parked closer to the road than most, and farther away from the main pavilion than any! ;D (I thought they hid it down there so it would blend in with the couple of left over FEMA trailers! ;D
But in all honesty it didn't matter what you used to get there in, or slept in. It was the fact that you made it there that mattered the most! There were all kinds of coaches in all stages from still having seats, stripped out, to fully converted, and loads of great people from every walk of life imaginable there! So next year BE THERE or be square!  I think they should put the bbs on hold during the rally next year and make it a one way live feed to what is happening there so people can see what they are missing! ;D
