Dallas for you my friend if you wish I'll leave the porch light on on my 1965 Travel Trailer! It ain't no castle, but I've called it home more than once! BK


Bryce,
That makes it even more coolererer!!!
We've stayed in worse places....
Like our Cabover Cornbinder in the TA truckstop in Downtown Nashville!

We tell people all the time that we aren't trailer trash, we're bus trash!

thanks for the invite. We have to see if Cat can get time off work before we can make plans.

I'd love to be able to attend.

I'm in SW Arkansas, so it's not far for me.

Can't make any promises this early, though.

Post details when they're available and I'll check the calendar.

Bryce,

We're headed for High Point, NC for Thanksgiving/Christmas.  We're not asking for you to make the date coincide, that wouldn't be fair.

But we may be the only California bus there if you choose mid November!  But remember, we're from rural California!!

BK, Jackie and I will be heading south for Dallas' and Cat's hoedown and had planned to go to Central FL from there for the winter.

You really know how to tempt a guy don't ya?  ::)  Driving back NW, like Dallas sez, 695 miles to then turn around and drive back south to FL probably doesn't make a whole lot of sense to normal people...but what the heck...we've got a bus and we're NUTS!  Besides, I've had skinny legs all my life....it'd be nice to have one a little larger than normal! ;D

We'll sure try and make it.

Busted, you should contact Christy Hicks and see what she's doing with a bus gether tentatively scheduled for the 2nd weekend in October.   Still, you and Christy are a good bit of milage apart...she's in OK.  Had a bus "Roundup" in Joplin, MO last year...planning a similar event based on where the interest lies.   
There's also a Branson, MO Eagle bash the first weekend  in October.   
And Dallas is doing Timmonsville the first weekend in October. 
I'd love to come out that way, but.....$$$ for #@& fuel becomes an issue.   We're staying relatively close to home this year.  Seem to be driving more, just not all that far in one trip.   Found there's plenty to do within a couple hundred miles from home.
Really would like to get down to Arcadia this year too...reckon that's about 500 miles...maybe a fuzz less than western TN.  Nashville's 450 miles from Charlotte.   
Good luck, regional get togethers are the way to go.  If fuel costs don't ease, they'll be the only thing.   I believe fuel prices will come down. 
Cheers, JR

By that time our bus may have enough parts to make the trip - either way, we will be there!  We live in Middle TN.

We live in the Nashville area and if it's a free time between work and Pat's dog showing we'd be there.  Unfortunatly not in our bus, but our TT will keep us warm (hugging still works, but after 22 years together the propane is faster).

Well no longer a bus nut, but over the years I learned a lot here and still come back to see what I can apply to the conversion of my KW T2000 for hauling my Teton fifth wheeler.

Hey Bryce...

You may want to include a hands-on workshop with that Bus Get-together you have planned and maybe schedule shop time for those that want to do some work on their coaches while they are there.

You and your place are well suited for those that are more interested in the inner workings of buses in addition to the usual party type bus get-togethers. Maybe give an informal seminar covering the various components and systems on buses and a little preventative maintenance, done right, goes a long way in keeping us on-the-road!

Your expertise and your shop could be very useful for both newbie's and old timer bus nuts. What they would learn would more than make up for the cost in fuel to get to your place in TN. Would be well worth it. Just a thought...

As you know, my bus is in good shape and dosen't require work, but I for one will be there to get that automatic kneeling system installed on my levellers and a set of Cross-Fires for my drive wheels. Maybe even convert all my lighting to LED's... I love those toys.  Plus I want to see if we can coax that catfish out of your pond. lol  ;D ;D ;D


Steve

PS... Have you been to your new web site yet BK... Need more info to fill up the other pages. I hope you don't mind that I embellished a we bit on the photo of your shop... lol   ;D ;D ;D

Steve, you are on the mark but still in neutral(LOL!) Check out my first post on this way at the top of page 1! I suggested it (no siminars, please) just as you'd put it to me while you were here, about scheduling a time for all to get 'm in the shop for a little service work, small peoject, just getting a good look , or etc. it's down in the second half of the post and I guess sorta go lost! But yes I agre that the shop time will be a high light of the week-nd getting a good look from the pit under neath is always something helpful (sometimes scarry, but still helpfull!)

I did get a look at the site and love it especially that new shop ya built for me! LOL! The asphalt around it is awsome! Ahh when I get home Friday AM I'll get in touch with you! On some ideas, changes, and etc.! BK
