Title: West Tennessee Busnut gathering @ BK's!
Post by: Busted Knuckle on July 20, 2009, 08:43:28 AM
OK well we have determined that we are going to have a gathering, rally, getogether, whatever ya wanna call it! Just be here!

Alright the main man that started this shindig by asking me if I would be willing to have one more in late September before the bulldozers come in and plow it all to become the new I-69 is Don Fairchild from Bakersfield, CA.
Don has not yet given us any exact dates yet, but he says the end of September.

Since he is going to be driving all the way from CA & bringing the Tri-tips, we are going to ask him to set the dates!
I have already told Don if he brings them we will have a cooker here to cook them!

OK I know Don, Cody & Libby, Slow Rider, Uncle Ned & Wilma are planning to be here. I have also have several others that said they were gonna try. I think Mike Hill & his son Jay Knight will be here (not confirmed, but probably!) Also I know Danny has expressed that he was going to try. Come on folks let us know if your thinking about it so we can get some plans in the works!

I am going to have the field bush hogged  in the next week or so so that it has time to dry out the cut grass.
Uncle Ned & Don have agreed to by the care takers to the drive in the curve under the big Oak trees! I'll have plenty of other spots too! Cody will be up near the shop so he can keep the coffee and bull going all the time!If Mike & Jay make it they too will need to be near the shop so Jay can be close to the action with out having to find his way around all over the plantation.

We have water, a dump station, a couple electric hook ups, and lots of dry camping area available!

Also if there are none of our (charter) buses needing repairs, our shop/pit will be available for inspections and minor repairs!

We are going to use Cody's Iggle for a demonstrator unit and do a small seminar on replacing his exhaust gaskets, checking his turbo out, and repairing a wheel seal! (and anything else we find while we are at it!)

If ya come early or stay late ya might be able to convince Cody to make saw dust for ya.

If ya got something ya want done to yer coach let us know ahead of time so we can schedule it. We do just about anything mechanical and service related! And with experienced nuts around to help we might just do special projects too! (time allowing!)

So come on floks chime in and let us know if ya will be here, might be here, or want to get something done while ya here. 

DON can we set dates to make it easier for others to plan by?

Bryce;

I am still looking at the last week end of Sept. The 25-27Th if that helps.

I have my bus running but am moving a lot of my electrical around ( moving batt,s rewiring the inverter and so on)
I still need to buy tires before I get on the road. I plan of leaving BAK. around the 20Th of Sept and making a few stops along the way to show off our product. At this time we are waiting for the university of cal. riverside to do the on board testing of a 12V71TI we rebuild and installed in a 138ft crew boat. Should happen some by the end of this month.

Hope to see a lot of busnuts there. Chris armstrong and his wife have said they will come down from MI to attend.

I have six tri tips ready to go, Do we need more.

Don

Of course early arrivals and late departures are always welcome too!


Don the more busnuts the merrier!

Zimtok it will be @ our place half way between Union City TN Wal-Mart Super Center & Fulton, KY Super Center!
Our physical address is 4880 & 4884 Claude Tucker Rd. Union City, TN (but GPS's & Streets and trips will show you a wrong location!)

Cody we won't be having any bodywork seminars this time!

We are way back off the road on the first of 2 parallel gravel drives on the left, just before the first house on the right if you come in from Section Line Rd!
We will try to park a bus out near the road to make us easier to find!  (Frank can we borrow yer's again?)

On Sunday we will take a bus over to Lambert's Cafe (Home of the throwed Rolls!) in Sikeston/Miner, MO ! ;D  BK  ;D

I have not made a rally yet with the bus.  I so wish I could make this one but the bus is far from completion. Wow just the thought of making a trip down south sounds so cool.

Lonnie, if a completed bus was a requirement, there would be very few buses at any of the rallys. lol

Hey Don, maybe Cherie and I will meet up with you at Bontrager's and have us a convoy to BK's

Chris

how about you Cody ?


Title: Re: West Tennessee Busnut gathering @ BK's!
Post by: cody on July 20, 2009, 07:22:07 PM
When we head for BK's we normally head straight down thru wisconsin, for us to hit the bridge and then head south we need to go 250 miles east, after you guys get done at bontragers the only thing left would be the dust on the floor anyway lol.  We're at the west end of the UP, directly north of chicago.


Title: Re: West Tennessee Busnut gathering @ BK's!
Post by: gmbusguy1 on July 20, 2009, 07:28:33 PM
Cody, I would drive 250 miles out of my way just to go around the Windy city

LOL

COME ONE,COME ALL! Let's make this one to remember! Just think you'll be able to tell yer grand kids I slept there before it was I-69!

All are welcome! No matter what shape your bus is in! Last time we had several who came busless, but left happy!

Bring the bus as a "steel tent" or bring car, PU, motorcycle whatever you chose! We have a shower available in the shop for anyone wishing to use it. Our neighbors aren't the nosy types who'll be checking to see if we have too many buses, or tents or what ever here on the property. They leave us alone and we leave them alone. Shoot some of 'm might even come over to see what's go'n on if we invite them! Matter of fact I might just invite Judge Morris to bring his S & S and join us even though he only lives on the next block and retired last month! His SIL Mark Jones will be coming by to see what the madness is about and to pick minds on how to do dis & dat, since he's gonna be the fab man when we do our conversion together! (I got the bus, he's got the metal working tools & skills! Now if we only knew someone who does wood! LOL!) ;D  BK  ;D

Yer just mad because yer punts was worse than ours! LOL!

Good point about Don loading and leaving though! This time he has to make the trip to Lambert's with us! (or at least meet us there!)

By the way Dallas what time/day should we expect to see you, Cat, Ralph, Ernie, & Alice pull in? Little cars are welcome too!, if the trip is to far for the bus! ($)

Unfortunately, I am 99% sure I won't be able to make it.  I am leaving on an eight day bus trip on the 29th.  I was hoping I could figure out a way to make it, but vacation time and the $500 worth of fuel is an issue.


Title: Re: West Tennessee Busnut gathering @ BK's!
Post by: cody on July 21, 2009, 06:58:16 AM
This rally means a lot to me, this is the first time I've almost felt good enough to enjoy a run with the bus, if I can keep the old girl running it'll be a good thing, and the bus too lol, Geeze I just got whacked alongside the head for no reason at all.  The bus has sat in jamies driveway since last fall and i've been able to use up some of the stuff I've had stockpiled to make it a little easier for me and for the war department, it'll be nice to get some use out of it, and to meet up with the crew again.

Well Brian I can certainly say we'll miss you, and I can also say you'll miss a darb good time! (the 2nd was way better than the 1st, and I'm sure the 3rd will be even better!)

Cody I can just picture you getting whacked for "no reason at all!" Yeah right, I've seen your no reason(s0 at all in person! ;D

Go around the corner to the driveway that has the pond. That pond is where Cat took Slow Rider's MC8 puddle jumping. I don't think he's gotten all of the fish out of it yet, but it's only been two years or so.

Here's the google map, click on the satellite view

Zimtok,
Yer close, but no cigar! If ya see where it says claude tuc...... our drive way is probably where k or e should be! If you can bring up that image just a little below what yours ends at you should see 2 gravel drives parallel less than 20' apart. At the end away from the road there is a huge shop 60 X 40 (+) & a double wide trailer/modular home (ours) & the single wide trailer across the drive. (the drunks)

Dallas yer closer! But still no cigar! (you shoulda known it by now you lived here!

The house in the corner is the one that has the beautiful pond that can be seen from the road!

Our drive is actually the second drive past Dallas' marker (below in the map!) that goes back in and curves. It dosn't show the field rd! (second gravel drive)

It's OK Dallas I went back thru the archives looking for part of the story on Cat learning to drive in "Frank's" Bus while it was here. (and then becoming a demon behind the wheel driving like the Dukes of Hazard and pond jummping, etc.) Whi;e looking I found this one you posted for the last one and yer balloon is EXACTLY at the right place at the end of our driveway!.

As a matter of fact right where your line ends coming up the drive to the "circle" is where you can see the shop!

you posted this while I was posting Dallas' old post! LOL!

Also at the end of the driveway past the shop on the right is our house and on the left is the Drunk's! (hopefully the drunk will have moved on by the time this happens!, but if not he won't be a problem!)

Also all of you please note I have no problem with anyone responsibly consuming alcoholic beverages and becoming intoxicated as long as you can keep it under control. But our neighbor/ex-landlord get's up drinking the same bottle of whiskey he passed out drinking the night before EVERYDAY and drinks all day long until he is beligerantly drunk and passes out again night after night 24/7/365! (it get's old after a while!)

I'll post these coordinates again for anyone who didn't get them the last time.

These are actually our parking space at BK's, so should get you close enough to find the shop.

For what it's worth, and Your mileage may vary.....

Ky Lakeside Travel, (BK's Place) should be located at:

36 27' 56" N
89 0' 3.57" W

I'm giving it some serious thought about showing up...
I'm sure we will have gigs on Friday and Saturday in Memphis, but I'm thinking about making a last minute appearance on Sunday.

If you want to schedule an outing of BusNuts, you could all load into a bus and come down to Memphis for our Friday night gig. Several buses could park on the street in front of Neils behind my bus. We play on the deck outside if it is not raining, there is no cover charge, and Neil has great food. We start around 8:30pm, but I'm usually there setting up by 6pm.
 
I don't recommend the Saturday gig as it is on Beale street. It would cost you $30-$50 to park the bus and the cover charge for the bar is $5-$10 per person and we don't start until 10pm.

I've been thinking about it some more and I might still come.  I might just drive my car because it would be cheaper than taking the bus.  I'll know in another month or so.

Is anyone coming to BK's rally that might be from the texas area or points west? I'm bringing some conversion stuff for frank (slow rider) and also for dallas, now, frank says that he'll be there to get his stuff but the question is whether dallas and cat can get there or not, so far I've got a countertop and sink for them that may need to be dragged to texas with some more stuff possible.

I'm guessing the counter top would not necessarily fit in or on 'MudFlap'.  I guess they could strap it on edge and use it as a vertical stabalizer.   

Baring acts of nature / mechanical failure or other acts of God, we plan on taking our tin tent to tenn.   I imagine we could swing down to that part of the state on my way home and save them from making some Hick-Pick site.  ;)

Thanks Matt!

Yeah, Cat has decided for some reason that she doesn't want me loading plywood, cinderblocks, sheet aluminum or steel, or pretty much any other building materials on the roof of Mudflap.
I keep telling her that there is a basket handle type roll bar that will keep it from collapsing, but she seems to think it might ruin the top or something.

Bryce,
I wish we could of attended your rally this year, it was such a good time the last time we did.  As everyone has said it was great to meet you and your great parents in person and Linda and I enjoyed it to the fullest.  I want to mention also that I think it was great of you to set up your rally around Don's schedule to be able to attend.  He does have the furthest to travel I believe and meeting Don was a lot of fun too which I am sorry we will miss this year.  Next year is looking better though and we hope you will still be able to have a rally many years ahead.  We look forward to meeting more of those that visit this bb'd than we already have to enlarge our family.

I want to hope that Kentucky Steve will have his coach done and ready to use by then also and be able to attend your rally, you hear that Steve & Deb??

Take care in your commercial & private travels and give your folks our best regards.  Have a good time at your rally.

Gary

Do you think TDOT will let us have a rally on the new I-69 before it opens?

Are they actually moving forward on I-69?  It looks like they have been working on the project for a decade or more.

Well Brian they did buy the property from the landlord (who has until the 14th to move according to his contract and hasn't sobered up enough to even look for a new place YET! {jest found that out last night).
As far as a Rally on I-69 goes lets jest say we'll play that one by ear! (since we don't even know what year that will be ;D ! LOL!)

Doesn't that mean you have to move by the 14th too?  How are you gonna have a rally there if that is the case?


Title: Re: West Tennessee Busnut gathering @ BK's!
Post by: Busted Knuckle on August 06, 2009, 10:04:14 AM
Brian,
NO THAT is not what it means!

As the land owner who has already received a settlement (hefty one at that too!) from the state his contract said he was to vacate in 90 days!

As tenants who have not received any $ or alternative location offers (the state has to offer us at least ONE comparable place / along with settlement $. B4 ordering us to leave!), but they are having as much trouble finding one as we are! ;D

Of course the drunk next door has been PLASTERED 24/7 since he got his settlement! Which is why he is crying "I don't have anywhere to go, and no time to find one now!"

CAT you know I'd just as soon burn the whole darn place to the ground  (shop, house, his trailer and the pond too!) and be out on the street with no place for us to go, & have to cancel the rally as well first! (and we both know that AIN'T gonna happen!)

Do you pay rent to the state now since they own the property?  I am a bit surprised the state would kick out the owner, but allow the tenant to stay, but what do I know?

I really want to come to the rally, but I am having trouble with the $600 to buy diesel for the bus for the trip.  I suppose the car and a tent would be a reasonable alternative for 1/3 the cost or less, but I would really like to have the bus if I go.

Well Brian as the land owner who collected a very nice amount of $$$,$$$.$$ and signed a contract agreeing that he would use a certain amount of that $ to purchase & relocate to a new place within X amount of days!

However we on the other hand have not received any $ or any offers of a comparable property to relocate to! Which under Federal LAW they have to do B4 they can MAKE us move!

A little over a month now to go till the '1st annual bulldoze the house down' rally, I've been working to get the bus put back together and ready to roll, the base cabinets are in and filled with crap, the uppers are in minus the fronts and doors, but I'm working on that, the bays are refloored over the new metal and the poop and water tanks are anchored and ready to hook in, even the fuel tank is almost full lol, I've been toting 5 gallon cans and hoisting them to dump in, kinda like a throwback to the old ghetto blasters but liquid.  I may not be able to get the new inverter bolted in and hooked up in time but the other things are creeping along at a high speed crawl.  I lost a couple of days cause of a bout with pneumonia. but I'm getting caught back up lol.  Life is good lol, Libby told me I had to take a couple of days to regroup after coming home from the horsepistal and wouldn't let me work on the bus for a couple of days but that was ok cause it gave me time to remodel my daughters bathroom in  her house, now I can get back to working on the bus.


Title: Re: West Tennessee Busnut gathering @ BK's!
Post by: Busted Knuckle on August 09, 2009, 01:39:39 PM
Ah, Cody!
Great to hear that you are doing good and able to not listen to the sound advice, and insisting voice of Libby again! ("Libby told me I had to take a couple of days to regroup after coming home from the horsepistal and wouldn't let me work on the bus for a couple of days but that was ok cause it gave me time to remodel my daughters bathroom in  her house')
Ah I think she meant taking a couple days to recoup, not regroup and remodel the inside of the house! But then again you've always sorta interpenetrated things yer own way anyway! LOL!

Now that I'm done getting on to you for not doing as told. It really is great to hear the progress being made to make flight in the Eagle!

I'm making progress too! While I was away on a trip this week end Chuckie got the farmer next door to bush hog the big field from the driveway back to his fence and all the way around to the pond for me! (I have to pay him, but hey even that is an awesome deal @ only $125.00 for approximately 7 acres on 4' tall grass and weeds!)

I've been working on getting things relocated around the property, and getting the shop cleaned up. One of the greatest things we did to assist is we replaced the engine in "Ol' Smoky" (my 1 ton tow truck) and now he don't smoke no-mo! So now we call him "MATER, ya now like Tow-mater" from the movie CARS. While we wuz at it we put a new flywheel in too, so now he starts without being dragged around the lot too!

Gonna be starting to be a busy time of year for us when the Rally happens, but we are looking to have things going smoothly and drivers doing most of the runs and I plan to be here most of the time. Mom and dad are scheduled to do a Branson run, but will be here for the early arrivals and back in time to go to Lambert's!

Things are shaping upnicely. Can we get updates and confirmations on who is planning to be here?!

Bryce, she made it perfectly clear, no work on the bus for the next week, then she made me promise, I did all that and didn't work on the bus, not a bit, nuffin. she didn't say anything about the house and she was here the whole time so I figured it was ok.  Besides all I'm doing is using up a few stray piles of stuff that I've been walking around, kinda house cleaning I guess you could call it.

Wow, talk about excited! Man I'm gonna be sleeping down by the mailbox waiting! (still waiting on my BCM anyway! got it today! So why not now I'll just wait for a cool yella motor powered Eagle too?!)

Now for those of you as passionate about yella motors as I am don't go get'n yer hopes up to high yet!
It was said "it's possible I might be there if I can."

There are uncontrollable circumstances which will either let it be or not be! Let's just cross our eyes and hope for it to work out!

With a little luck, keith will bring one of his guitars, if not I'll plant one of mine in his hands, he's a great musician, an old time bluegrasser. He's an old friend from way back, I took the liberty of inviting a few of my bluegrasser friends, so far he's a definate maybe and crazytom is also a definate maybe.

After eating at Lamberts  it will be several days before some of us will be able to move.

Just watch the driver he will take you on some short cuts on the way back.
Look up and see a sign that says "road ends in water"  Sit for a while and a little bitty ferry about the size of the SETRA pulls up.  Momma does not like water but she endured and enjoyed it finally.

A great week end. looking forward to it.

also going to be a convoy heading to kyles non rally the next week end.
all are invited to join as long as it stays off the interstate rds.

We'll have a small amount of my sawdust machines with us, I never can leave home without them lol but we may head home after the rally or at some point to get the rest of the important sawdust and noisey stuff and head back to BK's to pile up sawdust and make messes with wood and wood related stuff.

I ain't positive since that is still a month & 2 days away. But it will be whatever time the group as a whole wants to depart.

I'm thinking around 10:00 to 11:ish AM. But hey I'm just the bus driver, I can be flexible to what the majority says!

Bryce,

I thought I mentioned this to you already, but put us on list "D."

We can't commit to anything right now because we are on call for hurricane season.  But if we are not deployed and are still in the region when you meet, we'll certainly drop by.  We're in Amarillo right now, heading east in case Danny hits.

Sean,
If ya did mention it, I slipped up and forgot. (but that is entirely possible, and most likely probable too!)

It'd be our honor to have you, Louise, Opal, Angel, George, and of course Odyssey join us!

We will be waiting patiently to hear more about your where abouts near that time! (I check yer blog almost daily!)

I will have added ya'll the list by the time you read this!

Be safe, enjoy yer travels and lets hope Danny calms down! (we are on standby also as east coast responders, but it would be the first time we ever called on for east coast action! So far we have only been called to the Gulf Coast & TX operations!)

yep, it's getting closer, I've been putting the extra hours in with the old beast and even working on the bus to get it ready.  Opps sorry, was thinking out loud again.  The upper cabinets got themselves done today so, on to the next part of the "quick get it back together so it can roll to tenn" project.  BK made mention of our bringing a limited amount of sawdust producing tools, that, I will be doing, how much time I'll have for much actual work will depend on what a person wants done, keeping in mind that I am incredibly slow and pretty much worthless from a human standpoint lol. We may hang around a couple of days tho just to enjoy the company and kick tires.

 remember that we are going to hang around several days and then head down to Kyles for another get together.

I think Jack, and maybe Don and Wilma and I are going to caravan down.

May take a few short cuts through Tenn,Miss,Ala and georgia before we get there.

Have two weeks to do that.

Every one is invited to help me agravate Kyle.

I don't think we'll be able to go to kyles rally, right now the money is incredibly tight, I rolled the dice this summer and put both of my kids into medical school, I figured with me and libby both falling apart medically maybe I should hedge my bet lol, one of my friends suggested buying a third kid on ebay and sending them thru mortician school just to complete the deal lol.  What we may do tho is to come back at some point up here after the rally and get the bulk of my sawdust equipment and the DJ equipment and maybe try to make another winter of warm weather, lots of posssibilities to think about.

OK listen up here folks! It's only 3 weeks away now and we need to get a head count of who is planning to make it! Don Fairchild & Mike Hill are graciously providing enough Tri-Tips (think steak) & Catfish Fillets of each for a meal for everyone to enjoy! We all know times are hard and $ is short for all of us! So please let Mike & Don know how many people they need to bring food for. They both volunteered to do this on their own, the least we can do is let them have a fairly accurate # to go by.

I know some of you still won't know absolutely fer sure probably right up until the last minute for what ever reason. And that is fine, but if you do know for sure one way or the otherplease let us know.

OK also this WILL be the last rally here at this location! We were told today we have 90 days to find a place and move!

Hi Bryce,

     Gloria and I are planning on attending your rally later this month.  We are just down the road in Shelbyville, Tn.  Our RTS is in it's fourth year of conversion and, still not ready for prime time.  However, we still have our 1978 GMC Royale and will be arriving in the 'Classic' - if that's OK.  We realize it really isn't a true bus so, if you want to park us over to the side, we'll understand.

We will be picking up our recently purchased MCI in Dallas on Thursday and headed back to Delaware. I figured since we are going close by we may want to stop in and visit.

Guys, I won't be able to attend as I didn't get the bus holding tanks system squared away enough to travel.  Lord willing I can make the next not Hwy 69 get-together.

Post by: Busted Knuckle on September 27, 2009, 06:25:21 AM
Wow, it's been one looonnngg weekend, and it ain't over yet! But so far it's been great! For the lack of organization, we have made up for in great food and company!

Everyone's been great !

We had a superb pitch in dinner Friday night with Don Fairchild supplying the main course of specially marinated Tri-Tips, Bad Bob's (local BBQ joint) baked potato salad & Baked beans, pasta salad, fresh veggies & dip, rolls, BBQ taters & chicken, cherry surprise, brownies, peanut butter fudge, and I don't remember what else! BUT I DO remember EVERYBODY was stuffed!

Saturday we had a great time and some new arrivals. So far it's been;

3 Eagles; Sonny Gray, Red & Linda Ruby (+ guests Linda's sister Barb & hubby Tom), and Cody & Libby
3 GM's; Harold & Robbie Green, Richard Olsen, & and Uncle Ned & Wilma Sanders
1 Country Coach Don Fairchild
3 MCI's; Rick = Rick74MC8 (& guest Bill M), "Frank" aka Slow Rider, Bill (Homegrown Diesel) & Roberta Glen
1 "Baby GMC"; Gary & Gloria Thornberry
1 Bluebird Wonder Lodge; Jim Keefauver
1 Prevost Bob & Judy Glines

We also 2 drive in's as well.
Jim & Jennifer Simpson drove in all 3 days to learn as much as possible B4 buying their 1st coach.
And Dwayne & Peggy from Evansville, IN drove in for Sat afternoon.

The Thornberry's had to pull out early SAT AM due to a family situation and the Glen's pulled out late Sat evening after we got them some A/C and good food ! Bill & Roberta are on their way home with a new to them MCI they just picked up in Dallas! (Bill & Roberta the offer to trade even up on the '91 Setra still stands and I'll even throw in 2 Mercede's badges for it! 1 for the front & 1 for the rear! ;D)

Saturday night we all went to Joe's Steak House for a "catered" catfish dinner after I realized how late it was and we were not even close to being ready to start cooking our catfish as dad was still cleaning some of them & I hadn't even started heating the grill and fryer. So I called and made arrangements with Joe's wife May for us to come there and get catfish & fix'n's. We loaded up in dad's bus that mom & dad had just come in from Branson in earlier and went "out to eat". I'm pretty sure everyone had plenty as May surprised us with chicken too! (if they didn't get enough it was their own fault!)

Today I get individual pics to post. And we are going to "Lambert's" for brunch!

We arrived home safe and had a great time.  The eats were great and the hosts took very good care of us all.  Even though we got there in a heavy rain storm we had a good spot for our motor couch.  The visiting with everyone was very interesting and to hear about the wide range of careers that we heard about.  There were pipe line welders, high tower crane operators, truck and bus drivers and a sound mixer for Crystal Gale, a bed bugger, restaurant owner, machinists, tool and dyemaker, car & boat dealer, and Bryce "want a be bus driver" HA!, . .  and then there was all the hobbies..... drag racing, hi-speed boating and barefoot skiing and many others.  What an interesting group of people.

Glad ya enjoyed it, and made it home safe! Again I wish I'd had more time to spend with y'all and gotten a closer look at yer beautiful Eagle. I was busy all weekend running from here to there and set Sunday AM aside just for visiting & pics. By the time I got around to your coach y'all had gone to church, and then everybody was looking for me yelling "We're starving. When are we leaving for Lambert's?"
When we got in from Lambert's y'all had headed out. Sorry again, look to see ya again sometime and spend more time visiting.

It was a great weekend and I especially enjoyed everyone's company and coaches! ;D

Well I don't know about that.
I'm just me! Some people like me because of it, and well some don't. I don't let the folks that don't like me cause me any loss of sleep either.
I try to treat everybody equal and help anyone who needs it with anything I can.
If that makes me amazing, then I guess I am. But to be honest I'm just every day down home people. ;D

By the way we no longer have "that big ol' dawg Kumho" he ran off or something. Also Gary I heard mention of yer "class C diesel pusher" LOL! Someone else said "class C diesel pusher? I ain't never heard of such." It was a good laugh when we told them you had an 8V71 on the trailer pushing yer "class C" down the hills! We hope you can make it to the next one!

Darn it Bryce - I was hoping you'd get a picture of May - we had so much fun on the phone, I was hoping to put a face to the voice - I guess I'll just have to meet her in person the next time I'm up that way - I didn't get any further west than Chatanooga this trip - Regards

Well Niles you missed a great chance to meet her! If you'd came to the rally you'd not only met her, but many other great folks too! ;D

This posting is coming from "Uncle Ned's" kids.  After Ned and Wilma left the Busnut gathering they have been traveling around through TN.  They made it to Pickwick, TN Friday and Friday night/Saturday morning around midnight - "Uncle Ned" (Daddy) had a heart attack and was flown to Jackson-Madison County General Hospital in Jackson, TN.  Us kids left Lenoir, NC about 5am Saturday and went out to be with Mom and Dad - They did a heart cath yesterday (Sunday) late and found that he will have to have by-pass surgery.    We do not know when that is to be scheduled (told 2 to 3 days or possibly 3 to 5 days.)  When we last saw him - he was in Cardiac ICU.  We (kids) left to come home last night and arrived back home this morning about 5am.  Wilma and Huggy Bear are still with Ned at the hospital.  Just wanted to let everyone know what is going on.  I am not sure how this site works - so I am not sure if I will be able to get back on to make another post - so if you want more information, please email me at the following email address - info_scs@bellsouth.net or call 828-758-5820 and if we do not answer, just leave a voicemail message and we will return the call as soon as we can.

Thanks!

Uncle Ned's kids - Doug, Donna, Denika

Denika,
This informational post went through fine and we will all keep Uncle Ned and Wilma in our prayers.  They are such fine people and we were so looking forward to seeing them at Palmetto Cove this week as all the bus rallies are best when Uncle Ned and Wilma are able to attend.  I just talked to you on the phone and want to just remind you if there is anything any of us can do in the busnut family to help them out or anything they need let us know.  I would offer to drive Uncle Ned's bus home from where they are now but I cannot even drive my own at this time and perhaps someone in our family who is familiar with 4104 buses can do so if they have the time available.  I know this would be a relief off Ned's mind as you know it would to any of us in that situation.

Danika and the rest of Uncle Ned's family please keep us updated daily about Ned's progress and an address we can use to send cards during his re-cooperation.  

Thanks again for making us aware of this situation concerning Uncle Ned & Wilma, (my Dolly Parton).  We love you Dolly!!  Hang in there for us all also.

Gary
