Bill:
We have a few members of the Southeast Bus Nuts in that area, but many of us are either enroute or preparing to be underway for our annual Halloween Rally, well south of the Atlanta metro area.
Let me know what you need and when, and maybe we can help.
Good luck.

One of our members has upgraded from an Eagle 01 with a DD Series 60 to a late model Prevost. The Eagle is not here at the rally, but if you post a private message to me I can put you in touch with him.
