7 DAYS AND COUNTING....
« on: May 09, 2008, 04:46:53 AM »
"SEVEN DAYS AND COUNTING"[/b]

Oh, Yes! In seven days (May 16, 17, 18) The Gathering of Bus-Nuts will commence at the Fayetteville KOA Campground * I-95 * Exit 61, Wade, NC.

Space is still available for any latecomers so it’s not to late to enjoy a laid back relaxed weekend with fellow busnuts. 

Call “Marty” at 910-484-5500 and book your spot.

Some of us will arrive on Thursday the 15th and some will stay through Monday the 16th.

We’ll have a couple of potluck dinners for anyone interested.

There may be musical jam sessions available, otherwise no set agenda just a wonderful time to relax, talk bussing, kick tires, make new friends, renew old acquaintances and share some of your bus experiences with fellow busnuts in  beautiful surrounding.

Questions and comments welcomed.

We are looking forward to seeing each of you there.  This is going to be an exciting fun filled weekend.  Come if you can.
Work like you don't need the money; Love like you've never been hurt. Dance like nobody is watching.
What a journey in NC.

Hi Gene,

I'm planning on attending Saturday and Sunday, but I haven't made my reservation yet.  I'll do that tomorrow.  Has anybody started a list of who's planning on being there?  As to potlucks... is there any idea when or what one should bring?  Although my bus won't be there, it'll be great to see everybody else's.

C'mon in the water is fine.... actually it's green in the pool, but should be ready by Thursday.  Got here yesterday... run outta Myrtle Beach by the 250,000 bikers there this weekend.  Be sure to do your shopping in advance, it's a long way to anything (10 miles to a Food Lion and  twice that to Target, Sam's etc.), but the place is great.  Looking forward to meeting all yoose nuts!

Yep.  We've been getting ready too. 
I want to apologize in advance for the rain.  My bad. 
I washed the bus. That about garuntees rain...probably all day on Thursday.   ;)
I washed the bus last Tuesday, left on Wednesday, and it rained Big-Time three days out of five while we were gone.  We missed the late shows for Cherryholmes and Goldwing two nights in a row....?!   
Oh well...Bill, don't make Phyllis get your bus too clean.  Waste of time what with the weather and all you know!   ;D
We're looking forward to the Bus'n get together!

Looking forward to seeing every one.

It's not to late to join the fun,  Some of us will be leaving in the morning and others will follow.  If your plans can change come on down and join in, if not for the whole Bus-Nuts Gathering, for a little bit of it.

From the looks of things this could be a bunch of  8) Fat and Sassy  :D (no pun intended) Bus-Nuts.  No one should go home hungry--food will be plentiful.

See You there.

Fat's is already here.  Oh by the way, if you're bringing a dog, plan not to let them dig.  Coffee got 'em on high alert today, but we filled the holes and made peace.  C'mon down!

I'm not fat.   I'm Fluffy!  ::)   And I plan on getting a little 'Fluffier' this weekend!   ;D ;D ;D
I'm all ready to go...and the weatherman is indicating that the weather will hold off for the drive over to Wade.  Great!
Ned, I found the reciept from the fuel I bought after leaving Palmetto Cove last Oct at Hwy 11 and I-26...$2.37 a gallon.  I thought that was rape!  More like foreplay in retrospect!   ;)
You and Wilma have a safe trip! 
See ya'll tomorrow! JR   8)
