Title: Footloose and Fancy Free Bus
Post by: John316 on March 27, 2013, 08:36:16 AM
It was a blue one. Guessing an old MCI pulling a Jeep of sorts. I think I have seen an article in the BCM by them, but I don't remember. Are they on the board? Didn't get a good pic, but the front said "Footloose and Fancy Free."

Matt, they can also attest to the fact that we are hammered down and rolling. LOL

No kidding. That is cool. Yup, tan jeep. Ed must be the guy with the beard.

Hiya Ed. Fun to see your rig. Looks like a nice setup. We were the ones in the white MCI. I wasn't driving at the time, took the early shift. Where are you all headed to?

That is a shame. Would have enjoyed visiting for sure. Blythville makes sense. Sounds like a good time for all, for sure.

Yup John, that was us! I wondered if that was you. Told the wife i thought it might be. :) We spent the nite in Tucumcari and were just doing a short run to Amarillo so were kind of pokey-dokeying along about 10 miles under the speed limit. ;D  Gonna spend 2 nites here and then continue on to Arkansas.

Ed, if you are retired, short days are the way to go. Not sure if I could go that far below the speed limit though ;D. Nice looking rig. I should have known that was a 5. My older bus knowledge is just plain lacking :o. What year is the jeep? I would like to get one to mess around with someday.

When does the big meetup occur at Blythville? This is a perfect time of year for this area.

Nice!!! I really like those year Jeeps. That is the same Jeep I restored a couple of years ago to pull behind my bus.

Ed, still think you should be towin that nice little matching blue Ford pickup you have, it could be like your dressup towed, for fancy places like Blythville....

Clifford, we actually talked about it. The problem is work was piling up, and we needed to be back home. Were pushing hard to get back, so long days of driving. That is the one thing that I would have changed about the trip, was having a little extra time to stop by your place. Would have loved that!

Darn, Clifford. Now you are making me really jealous. I would have totally loved that lesson!

Dick and Di had a sharp looking coach. Nice toad setup too.
