« on: June 13, 2009, 03:08:47 PM »

     Our long planned trip is about to begin. We plan to leave about 6:30 AM on Monday and go to the Dr. for our annual physicals. When we walk out of the Dr. office, we will get in the bus and head North. We plan to be gone about 5 months and visit about 14 states. We will rarely travel further than 250-300 miles a day. Our first stop will be at Bushnell, Fl to visit with NCBob and help FLCracker install a couple windshields. From there we will head to Fred Hobe's and hopefully install an integral steering in our bus. From there, we will head up towards Montgomery, AL and then to Huntsville area to visit a couple busnuts. From Huntsville, we hope to stop by Union City to see BK and then on to Calvert City, Ky to visit another busnut. After that visit, we will continue on to Springfield, ill to visit family.
   When we leave Springfield, we plan to stop in Elkhart for a couple days before meeting friends in MI. After touring MI, we plan to visit friends in Ohio, then on to WV, VA, NC, SC, & GA before returning home in mid November.
   I will try to post our routes and we would love to stop visit or share an ice tea or coffee with any busnuts along our route.  Jack

Hi Jack,

Depending on whether you are coming up 81 or 95 we are only a few minutes away.  If your schedule allows we would love to meet the both of you.  Once you have a better idea we can work something out.

Frank

PS:  I hope you have a wonderful safe trip.

Jack and Paula,
Give Barn Owl or me a heads up if you can when you are coming through or near Roanoke.  We'll have a mini-rally, breakfast, coffee, or something.  Hope you have a great trip!
