BK,
Don't forget to send me photo's of your bus gathering this fall if you don't mind me posting them that is.  Send all the information possible if you do send any.  It is fun to do this if you want to take the time so consider getting your own web site such as I have.  
A suggestion for anyone that also wants to do posting of their photo's, go to www.webshots.com (http://www.webshots.com) and at the cost of $29 for the whole year you get to post up to 5000 photo's in a total of 150 different albums such as what I am doing, Oh, (I do not work for them) I am just posting good information if you want to consider posting photo's like I do also.  This is cheap if you want to share beautiful photo's of your trips we wish we all could do but will all probably do less now that the FUEL companies are paying more money to their shareholders at our expense.

Wish I could make your gathering BK, I just love your state of TN.
Gary

Hey Dallas,

I saw yer thread (or was it originally my thread that got hijacked or something like that Huh LOL!) was dropping pretty low, so I thought I'd give ya bump up the ladder ! How many ya got registered or committed to definetly coming so far ? So far NCBob & Ross are the only ones who've recently told me fer sure they were coming, but a while back Danny told me he'd be here as it the first one close enough fer him to attend since he's gotten his coach close to being able to use it ! Like I tell everyone hey put a sleeping bag or two in it and enjoy it while ya build it! I can assure you as soon as I get one to convert thats what I'll be doing (well I might cheat an use an inflatable air mattress that we got that's almost just like sleeping on a water bed, an I'm think'n might just end up being my permenant mattress when I get a bus to use it in!  BK Grin


Hey BK!
Just a shameless theft of your post on my thread so I could post on yours and bring it to the top!

So far we've got, I think, 14 registered with about 20 more that want to come that haven't made a firm decision yet.

OK guys and gals, It's getting shy on full hookups around here, hurry and preregister to save a little money and also to make sure you get a good place to park.

Then, while your on the road, you might as well take the time to meander over to BK's in Union City, Tn. and enjoy a great get together there too! Make sure you get registered at BK's before hand also so you don't get stuck out in the mud pit.

Ross

Oh sorry Ross, I wasn't try'n to pressure you ! I just got that e-mail like 3 days ago, and thought that since you said you'd be here that it was meant as a confirmation ! Hey if yer too busy mooov'n (pun intended! LOL!) well understand if ya can't make it, but at the same time yer only gonna be about 160 miles (give or take 10) away which is less than 3 hrs so if nothing else you could drive yer 4 wheeler up fer the day or something ! By the way just my personal opinion but if I were puttin up a bldg from scratch I'd probably make it 60' X 40' minimum, that way theres room for the bus on onside and still room for the fabrication projects on the other !

Just my opinion, I have no financilal interest in any of the metal buliding companies anywhere!

Shouldn't be a problem.  I'm trying to get the floors done in the bus before moving, but that may not happen.  Anyway, the bus will be road worthy, so I'll be there.  Provided my house deal down there doesn;t fall through, I should be moved by the end of next month and hopefully have a shop up by about then as well.  I've been looking at various sizes.  30x60, 40x60, 40x80....Depends on what I can get a decent deal on at the time.  These metal building salesmen are worse than car salesmen...."What can I do to get YOU in a new building TODAY?"

I hear ya Ross ! Just tell 'em well I've been talk'n to so and so, and he's said he'd put up a 60 X 80 for $XXXXX.XX and then call so and so and tell him the other guy said he'd put up a 40 X 60 at $XXXXX.XX and back and forth until they get down to where you can get a good price on a 80 X 100 LOL! Oh yeah tell 'em after the deal is done a guy in Union City by the name of Busted Knuckle says hello , and he appreciates them given ya such a great deal !
 Me and a couple buddies played this game a couple years ago where we beat 'm down terribly on a deal for 5 bldgs at rock bottom prices & in the end I had to back out for financial reasons (couldn't afford a bus, land and a bldg  so I bought the bus!) but the other guys ended up with some very nice bldgs at a great price!  BK ;D

Hello ya'll I received NCBob's registration form & check in the mail today! Thanks Bob & Jackie I look foward to seeing you!  Bob has offered to show up early and help with anything he can (except he note's he's not a forklift! LOL! no problem we don't use a forklift I have an '85 GMC 1 ton Tow Truck with a Hydrolic Holmes 1200 boom, and hydrolic wheel lift ! We use it for relocating heavy objects HERE! I was taught to work smarter not harder! LOL! But when I need to I'l jump in and pull my weight ((which I have plenty of))  anywhere anytime !) !  So if Bob shows up early folks as we give out "volunteer's duties" first come get first choice and Bob could be the one assigning parking places ! So get those registrations in so's I can start planning where who will be where as best as I can or I'll just tell Bob ah put 'em where ya want 'em!  (Bring plenty of Bob's favorite beverage or cash to bribe him !LOL!) BK  ;D

Well, we finally have a leveled pad and forms up for the floor of Larry's new shop, which will be a 40 x 52 ;D.  It will be a red iron, as the difference in price between red iron and weld-up was only $1,350!  We actually made a spot in it for parking the bus along the back, so that's going to be pretty cool.  His other shop is packed so wall to wall that he can't even get a truck inside it to work on it now ::). 

It will be alot nicer having this one right next to the office, so that way he won't have to drive two miles to the other shop, plus, I can look out my office window and see right inside his shop.  It's a good way to make sure he's ok, and also to catch him "goldbricking". :D  I can rap on my window and shake my finger at him if I have to, ha ha. ;D

Fair is fair and a plug is a plug, wouldn't you say, BK? ;) ;) ;)

Yes it is a plug is a plug, and a fine plug of a plug at that! LOL!!!

Now Christy is there gonna be a pit under the bus parking place? Nows the time to put it in ! They are worth every bit of trouble it takes to form up and reinforce the walls it takes to add one ! Just be sure to run H20, air and drain to it and firmly reinforce the walls before pouring the concrete (they have a tendency to try and bulge into the pit area if not braced strongly enough ! I've seen it happed time and time again ! LOL!) BK  ;D

If enough people put on their registrations that they are interested in having a great (the BEST in my opinion) Bus A/C man look at and discuss their A/C's with them I'll invite my A/C specialist to the "TN Fall Bus Bash"





But ya gotta register and put it on the registration form, so I know there is enough interest in it to ask him to take time out of his schedule to come over for a day! BK ;D

Hey, BK!
Why not post your registration form on the calendar listing where the Bash information is posted.... That way it won't get lost in the quagmire!

Just a thought!

We still don't know if we can make it.... Cat has a shift bid coming up around then and is not sure she'll even get any days off.

Everybody else though, needs to be getting those registrations in or NCbob is gonna hve you out in the mud hole with the skeeters and snakes!

hey, i just noticed there may be installation help as well as knowledge.  i need a bay heater, such as a wabasto, engine heater, cruise control and possibly engine brake.

can we do all that for less than a couple hundred, still attend and have fun and learn anything? ;)  will it be too cold there?  where is Union City, Tn.  i'm about as green as a spring apple (ask mr. conrad), so any help is helpful.

Wow, what a list !!! whew boy, I don't know Manasst, I know fer sure we could easily get the engine heater done ! The others are some what more complictated projects inthemselves ! I'm not saying no we can't or wouldn't be willing to try, but I really suggest you pick ONE that you need the most help on, and I see you've volunteered to be the "guinea pig" for the cruise control, at "Jack's Buss'in 2007" and rellay the engine brake (Jake) installation is something I'd rather do on a scheduled deal because of the somewhat difficulty of it.(and I'd rather not be tearing into engines on this particular weekend). So I'd say (and I'm not saying no to the other ideas!) make sure you have all (or most all) of the parts needed to do the bay heater! & the engine/block heater and it would be safe to say with volunteer help we should be able to do both of these at the same time ! While still allowing time for others to have time in the shop as well ( & for me and the help to still be able to enjoy some of the other happenings and not be totally confined to the shop!) Also the reason I say "small projects" is #1 we want to ensure fair time in the shop for eveybody! #2 it will all be volunteer labor (no charge, so larger jobs need to be scheduled for a later date at our reasonable shop rates) #3 we don't want to get into something that we can't complete in a fair and reasonable time frame, so we can all enjoy the weekend as well as the shop time ! BK

I hope this answered your questions, if not please call me at 731-885-7460 Bryce aka Knuckle

Oh yea Union City, TN is in the middle of nowhere !  Uh well it is!

Ross,
That is exactly the kinda "small project" that BK, El Sonador, & myself had in mind when we started olanning this Bus Bash. It's something requiring some assitance, but not a whole day long project !  But from what BK & I are seeing as far as registrations go well maybe each bus will have a day or to shop time available ! Just kidd'n ! We're sure everybody just being fashionably late in registering, or waiting to see if/or anyone else is coming! That's why we've decided to keep it a secret as to who or how many have confirmed from now on, sorry NCBob we should've thought of it sooner so folks wouldn't know yer the only guest we'll have ! Just kid'n again BK made say that!
Huck A Buck

PS. Steve, BK told me you came by and picked up some of the tires & I missed ya ! So since ya missed some you can stop in an pick up the rest of them anytime ! Scotty

I haven't registered because I'll be parking at BK's place for a little while during my house hunt.  I should be there in 2 weeks, 3 tops.  I figured I'd take care of it in person.  I'll also be around to help with what ever needs doing before and after the rally.

Ross

PS...BK, if you're listening, I can't thank you enough for offering the parking spot.  You da man....

Ross and Dallas, Thanks for the kind words it's really appreciated. I'll never be rich or famous, but I sleep well at night knowing I try to treat others right !

i'm discussing the finances of diesel before we send the form and the check.  And no, i didn't really expect to get that done over the weekend.  heck, i'd be happy just to learn where to get some of the parts and the best way to get some of it done.  just suggestions on how to heat the bays and the coach while in Ohio's winter (for a little while more anyway).

i think you might be able to put us donw for a 60% probability at this point, with a check in another week if i can talk her into it.  too bad its not til october.

Hello I'm beginning to wonder is anyone besides NCBob & Ross coming? I haven't heard from anyone! The longer folks wait, the less work I do getting ready! I can't see building  pit, and getting a hog & roasting it for 3 people! We can go o Bad Bob's alot cheaper! Bob bring a list as it looks as though you and Ross will have plenty of shop time available! Come on folks if you're planning on coming or at least thinking you might come let me know! I have plenty to do to get things ready, but I have plenty to keep me busy otherwise too! Christy and Dallas have gotten quite a few confirmations, compared to my 2 ! It takes alot of work which I am perfectly happy to do, if there will be anyone here to enjoy it! BK  ;D ;D

I'll probably come, but it kinda depends on how many others sign up.  I'm not sure on my bus or car at this point with a $600 bill for driving the bus.  It also depends how much money I spend on my conversion by the end of September.

Most of the projects I need to do on the bus that require shop time I need to get done before I leave on Sept 27th.  A big thing is fixing the entrance do so it actually closes!  I hate European style entrance doors that aren't hinged!

Hey Brian thanks for the reply, I do understansd the fuel cost issue! As I said before everyone is welcome, bus or not! I know fuel prices are killing everyone, but I need to know about how many to expect! If just a few are gonna show up, and everyone else waits for the pics & responses from this year to commit to next year then it won't make sense to go all out as in roasting a hog and such (we can go to Bad Bob's feed everyone and still have $ & time left over instead! LOL!) Also I don't believe it's gonna happen anytime real soon (ya'll know how fast the gubberment moves), but we may be forced out of our happy shop by next year! They are going to make I-69 go all the way from Detroit, MI  all the way to Brownsville & Larado TX (split in TX of course like 35E & 35W) it currently stops in Indianapolis, IN. Well we're right in the middle of the new road! Our shop is in the middle of the proposed North bound lane & the house is in the South bound lane! (I've seen the map the surveying/engeneering firm was using while they were out here drilling core samples and it even shows the shop & house drawn right in the middle of the HWY! Talk about being able to provide drive thru service! LOL!)

ANY WAY THE POINT IS PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOUR PLANNING TO ATTEND! Bob, Jackie & Ross are gonna have ALL the fun to themselves! I can't read minds so I have no clue in what to plan and when to plan it !  ;D 8) ::) BK

OK Bryce,
I'm the first one to say that there is no possible way for us to make it as far as I know.
She is on the waiting list for time off for the T'ville Tea Party, and if she can't get hat will have to take the rest of her float time and Sick days to be here.
If there was anyway I could make it by myself, I would be there in a heartbeat! You know that!
However, the little woman, Otherwise Known As, "She Who Will Not Be Disobeyed" won't let me go.
Darnit, I knew there was a reason to stay single and sample the milk when I wasn't gonna buy the cow!

However, thinking back, my first wife and I were married on OCT. 31st.
Hmmm, who turned the trick and who got the treat!

Did I really say that?



You bet I did!

Don't panic, BK...El Sonador, Ross, Jackie and I will be there (at this point) but I'm sure that there are others who will come on board in the next few weeks. ;)

If not (God forbid), they're going to miss one helluva party! ;)  Because we're, however few, or many, are going to put Union City, TN on the map as the gol- dangest hoedown that anyone has ever seen in western TN! :D

If I knew how to manipulate all the toys on the Board...I'd darn sure build one helluva banner to invite our fellow BusNuts to join us!

Patience pays off...and all I can say is, Y'ALL COME....'CAUSE WE'RE GONNA HAVE ONE WHOOPIE-DOI'N TIME!!!!!!!!!!!! ;D ;D ;D

I really don't wanna have to refund yer "extra $ if nobody else shows up, since I already spent it!  ;D (just kidd'n it's still in the desk drawer in the envelope it came in!) ! BK  ;D

Thanks Bryce, but you didn't answer my question.  Our airbag that goes down overnight.  Someone said it may be the levelor valve.  Is this the kind of project we could do when we are there? If we need new parts like airbag, level valve, etc, will we be able to get them while we are there?

Novice I'm sorry I totally spaced the question ! In fact I had to go back and reread to find out what it was, Yes this is the type of project we're talking about, and yes it is possible we can get parts (I got some, and I got a couple other sources who have them on the shelf) but I can't guarantee what we'll need until we find the problem! Also it is not uncommon for the airbags to go down overnight on older buses so you may want to take this into consideration as to how much $ you wanna spend on the one as fixing it could just be in vain if the others start doing it in the near future! I'm not trying to talk you outta fix'n it just want ya to consider the options! BK  ;D

"Hey, Hey, Hey! It's ___ ______ 'EY" (If you remember where that came from you are atleast as old s I am, and yes I some what resemble the "guy" who used to say it! LOL!) Anyway I just came back from the PO Box and got another registration form back!
That's 2 NOW! 2nd one is from Miami, FL !
[/b][/size][/color] And I've had some phone call confirmations! One gent who lives near my Dad in Gilbertsville, KY (Calvert City/Benton AREA) called Dad and said he just got back from an 8,000 mile trip to Alaska & back in his 9 and is planning on making it an hour down here for the bash! So Hey,Hey,Hey! Ya'll fuel prices are dropping (I made a phone call to the oil companies and told tem they were killing the "Folks who wished they could afford to come to the TN FALL BUS BASH[/color]" and they told me they'd see what they could do! LOL!!! ** and if ya believe that I got Swamp land in AZ & Ocean front property in TN for sale too!** LOL!) Seriously folks ! I only paid $2.63 a gallon yesterday! Yea! I know it still needs to come down a couple more dollars a gallon, but hey that land I got for sale is priced right! LOL! Ok folks time is getting nearer and I'm not depressed 'bout having to refund NCBob all that extra $ he spent for a prime/private spot LOL! 'cause if 2 more buses besides him show up, I can space 'm out 5 bus spots away from him on each side and still give him his 10 spots and keep his extra $ ! LOL! & if enough show up I'll have enough to be able to refund his extra $ LOL!  Just kidd'n Bob !

Hey Folks come on out and have a good time, we're gonna have at least 1 bus up from Miami, FL, and another who's been on an awesome journey to Alaska and back plus Bob and Jackie from NC by way of Timmonsville! Hopefully El Sonador will make it down from Canada also (even though he's extremely busy with his new biz aquistion these days!), he hasn't been able to confirm as of yet! (but this all started at his suggestion, and we're counting on him!)

:) ;) :D ;D So everyone get off the couch (and into the COACH) & come on to the TN FALL BUS BASH![/size] And meet these folks who are doing what we all dream of doing! Using their coaches to TRAVEL!  (and long distances I might add!) :o 8) ::) :-\

It looks like I will come if I can figure out the vacation time.  I already will end up with two and half unpaid days after my week trip at end of the month since I took my vacation time to work on the bus. 

I may see if I can convince the boss to loan me some vacation time since I bump up to four weeks vacation next year (not including two weeks sick time).  I don't see using all four weeks next year as two of my regular vacation trips overlap next year.  (We accrue vacation time throughout the year.)

I don't normally promote anything on this Board....but in this case...I'm extending a personal invitation to all who might be in the NW Tennesee area around the Halloween weekend to get on over to Union City and enjoys the comradrie and libations and of course the Pig Roast that Busted Knuckle is going to have for all of us that weekend. :P

Even though there hasn't been that many registrations yet, and if you haven't sent yours in...please do so...we're planning on this being the best party that area has seen in many years. :D

So, search your calenders and get on board.  Knuckle has offered the use of the shop and the pit for those jobs you've been putting off and naturally your time will need to be scheduled.  The rest of us BusNuts will be happy to shout encouragement while we're enjoying watching someone else work. ???

Time's running out...get that registration in.  I'll be happy to cancel all of my 10 reserved spots in favor of having another BusNut parked next to me! ;D

PLEASE do not wait till the last minute to sign up or worse yet, just plan on dropping in.  All rallies take a lot of planning .  We must know how many folks are coming so we can plan the activities.  I am sure we plan for a few extra, but if we are overwhelmed with folks we did not plan for, that becomes unfair to everybody.  End of soap box!

So, now, here's a thought :o. . . look at the line up ;). . . do you guys notice how a couple could just hit these rallies, one after another, bam, bam, bam.  I'm thinking that this should be an annual line-up. . . except Dallas' gathering should come, next year, the last weekend in September (if he's agreeable to that of course). . . the 29th, so that one could start in Delaware, head down to Timmonsville, head over to Branson, and then to Carthage, and then to BK's place in TN.  Wouldn't that be a cool run?  A month of bus-funnin'! ;D

So, what do you think?  Christy

PLEASE do not wait till the last minute to sign up or worse yet, just plan on dropping in.  All rallies take a lot of planning .  We must know how many folks are coming so we can plan the activities.  I am sure we plan for a few extra, but if we are overwhelmed with folks we did not plan for, that becomes unfair to everybody.  End of soap box!

i'm still gonna try like hell to make it.  Don't know if we can get any parts, or make up "our" mind on what stuff needs to done first, but the form and check will be in the mail.  WE wanna make it, but we'll contribute to the cause in any case.

hey, we can do seminars.  and we have a projector.  or we can shut up and drink beer.  just let me know your preference.  ;-)

Hey everyone Belfert's BACK!!! And he & his Dina are gonna be at the "TN FALL BUS BASH", so All ya'll that have given Brian support, advice, info, heck, or what ever come on out and meet him, pitch in and give him a hand on some of his smaller projects, sit back and drink a cold one while giving more advice from the side line! But just get out and come on! Also still try'n to get some idea of how many are gonna be able to make it. We have Capt'n Ron (from the BNO board) offering to come entertain us, if we can cover his fuel costs (no charge for the show which is how he makes his living folks!) I've pledged $100.00 out of my pocket for fuel $ and if we have enough people show up we'll be able to use some of the registration $ to cover the rest! We aren't high $ folks and can't afford to over pay the great bluegrass outfit Dallas has over paid but we are try'n to make sure everyone has a great time! Let me know! BK  ;D

by the way incase you ever wondered why I always use the cheesy smiley face as my sign off, it's cause Momma told me keep smilin' son it makes folks wonder what yer up too! LOL!   ;D ;D ;D
