Pics from the Quartzsite Eagle gathering
« on: January 22, 2008, 04:31:49 PM »
I've set up a little flash web page to show the Eagle pictures I took at the recent Quartzsite rally. We had a great time and met lots of great folks. These buses were fantastic! Really got me Jonesing to get on the road.

Thanks to everyone for the hospitality and putting up with my dumb 'how did you do that' questions.

I think the page is pretty self-explanatory. You can scroll through and see each photo. If there is one you would like to save, just click on the big picture and it will open a larger jpg in a new window. I do have hi-res pics of each if anyone is interested. Just ask.

And I've got to show the bonfire just because it was so great hanging out there talking to everyone each evening.

Songman,
What a great job you did showing the beautiful places where Eagles Fly.  I enjoyed your site, take more if and when you can. 

Tell Don I am waiting on that return email when he gets the chance but with him being in Eagle Town this week I don't expect it.

Gary,

We're home and back in business. I'll tell Don that you are watching your e-mail.

I plan to go to Pomona and Hemet to the upcoming gatherings. More photos will come. More interior shots too. I was so in awe of these coaches that I forgot to take pictures when the owners were showing me around.

Songman -

Nice work.  Aren't digital cameras neat?

I really like the look of the two-axle Eagles. . . One of those would be my preference if I were to move over from my 4106.

I see there were a couple of 4104s in amongst the Birds.  Did you by chance wander over to the GMC group that was next door and take some pics?

Enquiring minds want to know. . .

Glad you & Don had a good time.

Songman,

Absolutely grand!  What a post.  Thank you.  I didn't think there could be that many outstanding Eagles in the country.  Thanks again for sharing this.

Russ,

We drove through the area where the GMs and Flexibles were parked but we were kinda in a hurry and didn't get to walk around and take pictures. There were some beautiful rigs in there!

That one single axle that I took a couple of pictures of was actually an Eagle 35-foot production motor home chassis. Very slick!

Is that 35 footer the people from Springfield Mo.? I think I was parked next to it at Branson Eagle rally once? - Beautiful Coach - as are the above - Nothing finer than the classic profile of a fine Eagle when restored and freshly skinned and painted -

Niles, I don't remember where the people in the 35 were from. Looking at the front plate on the bus, the colors are correct to be Missouri so it probably is.
