Title: NRG (Westside)
Post by: Van on September 15, 2012, 02:11:22 PM
 Lvmci and I have been kicking around the thought of doing a little gathering before the Q run here at http://lakemeadrvvillage.com/. (http://lakemeadrvvillage.com/.) anyone is welcome to join in, maybe some of you early snow birds headed south would like to join in, no date set but thinking some where in November. any one interested give a hollar, just a gathering of busnuts or wanna be bus nuts, having a great time before the great time at the Q.
   Tom/Tami/Cheryl and I had a great time today. started with breakfast at the coffee Cup here in Boulder City where we met them, they were on their motorcycle so it was a good excuse to pull out the chopper for a ride. Latter we rode over to our coach to give em' the 5 cent tour of our Desert Eagle, we thought how much fun we all could have with a little gathering down at the Lake mead rv park. So, if there is any one interested in having a great time lets belly up to the bar  ;D and let us know. you can respond here, shoot me a PM or give me a jingle @ 702-664-4265 thx.

Hi All you Southern Nevada Bus Nuts, hey all you north and central Arizonans and southern Californians, how about all you southwestern Utah bus converters, here's a special invite to you all and to any other of you friendly bus enthusiasts, to come to beautiful, sunny, and comfortable lake Meade in mid November, park in a shady spot overlooking the largest man made lake in the US, cook up some good times and share some camaraderie, if you can't come, sorry it would've been great and you'll be missed, but give a shout anyway, tom, lvmci...

 SET A DATE! to make it plan-able, Red Rider and I are looking for a "quicky" get-a-way during that time frame and the distance is doable with little effort.>>>Dan

Hi Dan, no dates yet but give us an idea of ya'lls time frame and we can start from there.
Hopefully others will chime in too. I have fancied this idea, after seeing how well the NRG movement is working in the southeast. Having talked with Ace a few times on the telephonic device, we concluded that an NRG event could be possibly a good thing to have out here on the left coast also.
NRG, a Non Rally Gathering, is just that, just a simple non club event where people can just get together meet other busnuts or potential busnuts and have a great time, see first hand what all the cyber hoop-la is all about. I know I speak for Tom and quite a few to say we love meeting other busnuts and seeing what they have accomplished with their rigs, sharing their travel stories, and learning new tips and tricks to make this life style so desirable. So it does not matter whether you are well versed or a newbie, heck you don't even need a bus bring what ya have even if it is a tent, there are accommodations for dry camping right next door.

  Looking forward to meeting you all
            Van ;) ;)

Van -

I'd like to suggest the weekends of Nov 10/11 or 17/18.

10/11 might be better, as 17/18 is just before Thanksgiving, which may affect folk's travel plans for Turkey Day.

You decide?

FWIW & HTH. . .

Van its good to see you carrying out what we had discussed! Dont be discouraged if nobody shows at first, remember two coaches make an NRG and keep in mind, if you build it, they will come! If they don't, only YOU know what they are missing!
Good luck and have fun! Thats what it's all about. Not formal meetings and time wasting discussions that end up with nothing being solved!
Just doing it gets people together and buses out of the yards!

 ;DLol! Clifford, you quack me up buddy lol! That's why I don't I don't git involved in fuel mileage discussions, no one would believe me any who ;D I could do the whole trip on a couple of gallons ;D.
 Ace thanks for the encouragement, always welcome for sure ;) :) well then it will be an official NRG event for sure and thanks to lvmci (Tom) and his lovely bride for showing so much interest in doing a get together ;)
  Thanks much Dan and Rj for the suggestions, I will go down to the park this week and check out the suggested dates with the managment. Incidently this happens to be a very bus friendly rv park, one of the head hostesses, fella named Tony is a retired trailways/hound driver and loves when a bus rolls in, any bus ;D ;D

 More to follow...
 thanks all!  ;)

Hi All, for all you potential bus nuts gathering at Lake Mead, Nov average temperature is 68/44 degrees, "...the water temperature is pleasant through late fall and air temperatures are comfortable even during winter days.". Your trips into Las Vegas 20 to 30 miles away, may be a little warmer,  commensurate with how much money you loose, alcohol is now available in Boulder City, thanks to the lobbying efforts of Van, so you no longer have to leave Boulder to imbibe. If your are a fan of peanut butter pancakes they are available at the Coffee Cup dinner, recently featured on the Discovery Channel located in the quaint village downtown BC. The Boulder Dam Hotel has a great restaurant, straight out of the 1930s, guests included Presidents, dignitaries and some busnuts. Oh, before I forget, there's a cute roadside landmark called the Boulder Dam (Hoover Dam for all you non Southern Nevadans) nearby. Don't forget, keep Vegas green, bring money, lvmci...

I second for a set date, with the proper motivation we could be in Vegas for a bit of rock climbing and a bus NRG would be just the motivation to get us down there!

Cheers,

TM

Sorry, I won't be able to make it. Western GM has a board meeting Nov 10/12 2012 in Golden Valley AZ. I wish I'd seen your post sooner. The Bus conversion community needs more and fresh ideas and you folks hit on a great plan.

Good luck and like Ace said "build it and they will come.

Van we just might make that one. I hope to be at Clifford's the last week of October for some much needed maintenance on the old DD. We should have her back together and rolling by then.

Good morning Bus Nuts! Just a friendly reminder, we are 30 days away from our 1st West Coast Non-Rally Gathering at the http://lakemeadrvvillage.com/. (http://lakemeadrvvillage.com/.)
(http://i457.photobucket.com/albums/qq292/cwvanhagen/lakemeadtrip035.jpg)

 Come Share a nice weekend here in beautiful Southern Nevada with fellow busnuts. Don't own a bus yet? come check out ours, ask questions, take pictures, we like to share! Quite a few have shown interest in attending this gathering thus far,so it should be a fun time. More info can be gleaned in the Calender section here on the BCM board http://www.busconversions.com/bbs/index.php?topic=24372.0 (http://www.busconversions.com/bbs/index.php?topic=24372.0)
The new crew from BCM will be in attendance also, so in an effort to help promote them and the magazine, we will have plenty of copy's (thanks Kellie ;)) to hand out :). There is still plenty of time to make plans and attend the first non-rally gathering ;) Hope to see you all there! :)

   Happy trails

Hi All, went to LakeMead RV Village today, beautiful view across the Colorado River mountains and the Lake, temp was about 75, we've  Reserved sites 10 thru 17 on lake view side, say your with the Dam Rally, busnut, Van or lvmci Tom  group. Good Sam and other groups discounts apply ask in advance. Can't wait to meet you guys, my wife Tami will be taking pics. So come one and all to the 1st annual Dam Rally, in the Lake Mead/Hoover Dam/Boulder City/Southern Nevada/Las Vegas area.

Van, what space #'s are those with the white fence that face the lake?

Wish we could have made it, but we just got back from a 3000 mile trip and are still recouping.....so to speak.

Thanks, I saw this before when searching places that we could go for a few days, and of course it has to be by water ;)
That location must be over a bluff from the main RV park.....this is Lake Meade RV Village, isn't it? I did not notice those spaces in the photo gallery.

Are you guys there early, or is it still scheduled for the 10th.....I might have read the date wrong :0

Hi Mike! First off, congratulations on your new ride and a successful trip back home, how awesome! There are 30 lake view spots on the fence, they will accommodate up to a 45' coach, 30/50 amp service, sewer and cable tv WiFi is also available. Here is the map http://lakemeadrvvillage.com/filemanager_v4/foreverresorts_v4/1/119/items/C16163F3-F85C-0706-282BF9A6B5DDFFE1.pdf (http://lakemeadrvvillage.com/filemanager_v4/foreverresorts_v4/1/119/items/C16163F3-F85C-0706-282BF9A6B5DDFFE1.pdf)
 Cheryl and I will be checking in on Fri the 9th, and will be there till Sun. I understand the recouping, Maybe you guys can come up for the day in the car/pu and recon the area for your next "Sta-Cation" and bring those crab cakes with ya ;D If not then please let us know when you might be in the neighbor hood and stop by for a spell, our door is always open.

Thanks! We couldn't be happier with her and we are we going to make a few changes to accommodate our needs .....if ya know what I mean ;)

Thanks for the map to the campground, we appreciate it! We would really love to come up and see the area and meet some new people, but we are going to stay home.
We have Quartzite on the calendar and hopefully we will be able to attend.
Other than that we may do some short runs from town to get away, maybe the lake.....haven't really decided yet.

When we make our trip that way, I will be sure to contact you, would be great to meet ya'll.

Have a great time, be safe!

This morning, the bride and I, were sitting here discussing this dam meet in the desert.  Kicking the tires of the beast and wondering if a 2,000 mile trip into the lost world of gamblers, hookers, low interest notes on repo'ed homes was worth it.

She looked at me and said, "How many are going to be there?" and I said, "I am not all that sure honey, I think it is around ten all total." 

She smiled, and said, "Good for Van, that is nice."

I looked at her and said, "Yeah, you bet.  If I was to host a meet, a handful would show up, and most of them would more than likely be carrying a brand new rope or possibly armed."

6 more days.

Mike, when you come up, give a little notice maybe we can create a lowtide lodown nrg just for you! lvmci...

Thanks for the offer, that would be fun and funny at the same time.....heck, we can make a banner for the event at the shop.
You gave me a good idea, maybe I should offer banners for any future events.....just not familiar with who to speak with and I am sure each event is sponsored by different organizations or person/s……will see how that goes ;)

We will definitely be sure to give you folks a good time lead on when we will be coming that way. We are really excited and look forward to meeting other bus nuts.

I really wish we could make it up that way for this shindig, this is a beautiful time of year with awesome weather....couldn't ask for more ;)
Believe me, we would love to come up that way, but not only are we re-cooping from our last adventure, but my dear wife had surgery today (she is still re-cooping from her back surgery in March) and will be out of commission for about 4 weeks with the shoulder this time AND she is scheduled for another surgery shortly before the big get together in Quartzite....so basically everything and trips are on hold pending her recovery from the knife.
As you can see, we are getting everything that needs to be done before her company goes with the new medical plan effective January 1st…..what a raw deal this has turned out to be and I am sure the insurance company loves the bills we are running up…..lol

 I still have 3 more appointments to go for myself and I am sure one will require foot surgery…..going to feel good to be back to normal

Anyway, thanks for the offer and we will most definitely get together in the near future with you folks from the near by areas.

All the best!
Mike and Lori

http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/FXC/wxstory.php?wfo=vef (http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/FXC/wxstory.php?wfo=vef)

We may be rolling in late friday if this turns out to be as strong as advertised.

This is what their website says:

 "RV/Motorcoach Washing :  RV Benefits

Blue Beacon takes care of all your RV and Motorcoach washing needs providing you with 24-Hour service at over 100 locations in the United States and Canada.

        RV Benefits PictureProtects Your Investment
    Blue Beacon uses only warm, soapy water for all recreational vehicle washing. When you include regular washing in your maintenance program, you not only reduce corrosion, you're adding value to your RV and Motorcoach equipment at trade-in-time. To protect your paint from fading and give it a high gloss shine, try our new WeatherShield™ or RainX® Complete paint protectants.

    (Upon customer request only, we will use our exclusive citrushine™ product, which is a mild citric acid solution; safe for all paint, aluminum and chrome finishes. We can also use our exclusive brightener product on your aluminum wheels, but again we do so only at customer request.) "



According to this the acid wash is optional.  Is that not true?  Or am I not  reading it correct?  For $35.00 it seems like a reasonable price.

Gary, that is not the facts about Blue Beacon they never even check to see if acid was used in the last wash they just spray, all us Eagle owners called it Streaking Beacon 

Only one place on Matts Eagle is there any streaks I missed getting the acid off the tail light door on the passengers side from the Blue Beacon in Vegas  

They may have changed their wash practice now as Blue Beacon did buy some siding for Eagles a few years back

I spent 3 hrs trying to remove the acid  one night even their soap will streak the siding it is not fiberglass once was enough for me at Blue Beacon lol.

Plenty of mobile outfits in Vegas to hand wash his bus and they do a lot better job he can park and call one to his site I did for years  
The Eagle belongs to him now but that cowboy will get pissed when the streaks start to show up in a few days from Blue Beacon

Here in AZ truck washes are not allowed to use any type acid

Show him a picture of Sonnie's Eagle and he will be convinced eh?

Hand wash it and stay out of the truckstops.  Pride in your ride is one thing, siding an Eagle is another.

Hi All, got the Italian Greyhound washed at the Bus Depot, it was hand washed, the kid washing her put on a show with a lot of energy, no wonder he's skinny! Global was, across ffom the TA truck stop on Blue Diamond Rd, is high pressure tunnell with high air fans and hand dry, cheaper, but my windows can't take the high pressure spray right now. 20% chance of rain in LV Thursday nite, that means 20 mins of sprinkles in the valley, not necesarily at the Lake, but there will be wind, may want to put off wash till Sunday., lvmci...

Reverse Osmosis, think they call it zero water Don. I load up a 40 gallon water tank in the truck, haul it up to the coach and do my thang. unfiltered water here leaves a milky white film that is a bear to get off.

Thanks, Clifford for the info on Blue Beacon.  I guess I'll continue to wash my rig myself with soft water and liquid "car soap".  On the road she will just be dusty until I get home or a place where I can wash her myself.  Like you, Van our well water is high in calcium and I only use "soft water".

One of these days I am gonna buy me "The Bus Nuts Dictionary" and BTDT means?

We have a lot of calcium in our water here at the goat farm.  Get a bottle of Vodka and wipe it down with that, cleans, removes the waterspots, and leaves a little shine.

I can assure you in the context it was used it did not stand for "Worse Than Failure"  "Wed,Thru,Fri" didn't work either Don 

 For a long time when Sean and RJ signed off HTH I thought they were talking about chemicals for a hot or swimming since Sean has a tub and RJ had pool cleaning service so don't feel bad

Also boiled Linseed oil work well to rub down any black trim and or window rubbers. If you have dull chrome or paint on it as in over-spray try some Vodka or lacquer thinner with oooo steel wool, it will shine.

 A special thanks to Kelly Varga, Gary from B&B Coach, Matt & Carolee, Tom & Tami, our new found friends from Canada (Saskatchewan) with that beautiful BB Wander lodge, Tony & Jean Sturla (camp host) for a very informative bus history lesson, and last but not least The Lake Mead RV Village for all the support and a great time!
 Enjoy the Pictures, and keep your eyes open for a NRG event near you! ;)

I couldn't agree more, numbers do not matter and too may people seem to take something away from a gathering.....so to speak.

To bad some people spend time getting their rigs ready, spend good money to get to these events and then end up in arguments or disagreements so bad that they are not speaking with each other......life is too short and in the end, it's not worth it.....just my opinion.
I do have to admit, when we end up going to a gathering we will look forward to meeting new people and having a great time, along with the chance to learn what we can.

No sense in being upset, I can be upset all I want at home and it doesn't cost a dime ;)

You don't need to be a member of this or that, to enjoy the company of others.

Play well with others.  Use good deodorant.  
And share.

Named after our dogs,  the silloutte is of Bella my first, lvmci...

Tom's bus is a lil' Hot rod by the way, fun bus to drive.
John, we'll see ya next time round. Ace, thanks for your support. We had a swell time down there, the setting we were in made it difficult to talk about anything other than buses, or how beautiful the landscape was. Mike, that is how I feel ;) Don't know if we will make it to the Q this year but do look forward to meeting you and Lori in the future, even if you are just passing thru with out the bus please do stop and set awhile the coffee pot is always brewing ;)
 
  This was just the first attempt to have a get together at the lake and by no means is the cure all alternative to club rallies. Be it known, I do not have any issue's with club's or their events, but would much rather attend gatherings where the agenda is to have fun and meet new bus nuts regardless of the flavor machine they choose to drive or what their club affiliation. :)

  Tom & Tami deserve all the credit here, because if it were not for their curiosity about other busnuts in the area getting together, it probably never would have happened. So here's to Tom & Tami, and all of you who made this happen by just showing up as well as Kellie from BCM, Gary Benett from B&B Coach and many more behind the scenes.

 Thanks for your support!
 We'll see you at the next NRG!

Hi Van,

It's really nice that you post all of these pictures, but how about identifying the people? I know you know all of them, so please introduce them to the rest of us. It would also be nice if you identify which couple belongs to which bus.

Thanks, Sam
