Hi Kyle,

I live in Forest City, NC just North of the State line. I have a Eagle 10S and have a couple of friends in Chesnee, SC one with an Eagle and one with a Prevost.

I'm going to chime in with Tom...being in NC...but a wee bit west of ya'll.  I'm up in the mountains in Franklin, NC with an old MC5A that needs a bit of help in the finishing.

But we'll be at Timmonsville, SC, at Dallas and Cat's bash, next month and if you're not aware of it...it's going to be one heck of a good time.

Jack Conrad is going to install one of his famous door locks (Freightliner) in my bus and there's going to be seminars, and all sorts of interesting things going on for we Busnuts.  Bluegrass, beer, a Hog roast and comraderie for all.

Other than that, it'll be Busted Knuckles bash in Union City,TN to celebrate Hallow'een...then it's on to FL for the winter for us.

We may not have time to get together this year, other than these rallies, but there's always next year.

I enjoy getting together with other BusNuts to see what they're doing and talk buses.  So much to learn..and so many ideas!

May the Bus Gods smile on you and your project........

I'll be at Timmonsville, I'm bringing my Dad. His Motorhome is a little easier to live in right now & I want him to meet my bus nut buddies.  ;D

HEY watch it! There better be a few more! :)

Looking forward to meeting all you guys in T-Ville but it also looks like I will be doing a lot of travelling up to that point. It appears I get a free all expense paid trip the week before when I take Susan to Memphis for a business meeting at her new emplyers Fed Ex corporate office. Wasn't really looking for that trip as much as I was the T-Ville trip but hey, it's paid for and since I'm cheap, let's roll!

Bus is coming along just fine once again now that I started working on it again! It sure relievesx the sweekly stress!  ;)

I barely have a grip as it is....... But y'all have a ball, I know I will!

So, I'll be the designated driver as I never cared for the taste of beer as much as I like driving.  ;D

Besides, I'd rather learn the turn limits of a bus while under someone elses insurance (It also saves me an a$$ whupin' if the owner is properly 'medicated') ;D  ;D  ;D

Y'all better hide the keys!

Ok! OK! I'll guess I'll have to admit I know ya :P   I'm over here in Taylors

There is one like mine near my son's middle school,  I had to do a long double take one time when somebody said "There goes your Bus!"  his is black across the back.  Saw a really sweet eagle in Travlers rest a few months ago.

Hadn't heard from the BBQ guy in a while.

Maybe Ericbsc will give us an update with some pics :)
