Tom, a little clarification of "nice ride".  lets see, bicycle, bike, quad, double decker bus (with calliope of course)  or just Gary's rental car?  I forgot piggy back. Ha. :D  Jack

Hi Jack, just an old fashioned wheeled bipedal,  using your legs to give your butt a ride! Don't forget,  we're going to check out the road to willow beach, to see if older buses can handle the beautiful.scenery, tom lvmci...

I plan to burn a tire in the fire ring--it'll keep us warm and hold down the mosquitoes.  Baring 40 mph winds we'll be there Friday.  Too much fun!  Jack

Jack, I hope your not going to burn one of your drive tires, especially if it's still mounted on your coach! Altho, that might make quite the scene! tom...

Hi All, another That Dam Rally, has come to a successful end. Fun was had by all, the food was great, everyone contributed to the incredible cuisine fit for the king and queen of the shindig,  Billy Van and Cheryl. the weather was a little windy at first but Starlit nights and clear days full of sunshine, made everyone's day, a shooting star caught my attention, I jumped up and over Kenny and Lisa, Peter & Yvonne, Russell & Lynn and Jerry & Delight to grab Nicky, dip her backward and gave her a smack right on the lips. Ron and Merediths Prevost conversion had everyone's attention and he got lots of ataboys and pats on the back, especially with how Ron was able to bring his 52' bus to everyones front door to look at It! Tyke had everyone's rapt attention with his stories about his life as a young man, what an amazing story! Van told the now classic story about his days with the NSA and Gary's flirting with the bikini clad sunbathers didn't go unnoticed by the wifes. We took a little convoy to the Arizona side of Lake Mojave, there's a bordello there, but Gary was short of cash, so we were able to leave after a short bit.
   There was some great guest appearances by Gary Bennett and Dale Houston,  Gary was able to give the long sought advice on how to create a bus interior out of teak wood and Dale gave an impromptu song fest with some of his out of this world, alien music.
   Sonja gave all takers a ride on her recumbent bike, what an experience with five of us on her bike! Clifford gave a hands-on demonstration on how to slide an 8V71 off it's cradle on to a piano dolly, and reinstall the drive shaft with just one hand! Ed and Janet gave a demonstration of their Spanish Flamenco dance, what a graceful duo. And Matts puppy got some luv from everyone.
   What a weekend! lvmci...

Thanks Jack so great seeing you and Lorna, her pie was gone in minutes and your always gracious showing your bus, how many times have you been asked if the pop up roof was standard equipment in the 1930s Chevy school bus? tom...
