Is there a bus area? How do know who is from this forum? I would like to come along and get some ideas for my purchase.

Steve,
Please attend!  This is a great place to get ideas - especially since it looks like Jack Conrad and Buswarrior will attending too!  Last year there were only a few (2 maybe) people that did not bring a bus, so don't worry about a specific bus area.  It all is!  Grin  You bring up a good point about knowing who is from the forum.  We should have a system.  We could put our alias' on our door windows or windshields.  Look forward to meeting you!

Just want to say thanks to Bob and Ed for putting on such a fun rally!  It was a real pleasure to meet so many familiar names from the board in person!

We enjoyed meeting everyone at our first rally!  Thanks for the hospitality and including us.  Ed and Bob did a wonderful job along with all the helpers.  We are looking forward to attending another one in the future.  It was truly a pleasure being able to put faces to the names we have become so familiar with on the board.  Thanks Ed and Bob for putting on a GREAT WEEKEND!  Be sure to thank Gracie for us as well, we know she did a lot of work too!

Well, there was this snowman, and a golf cart, and some large number of beer cans, and apparently some joyriding in the middle of the night, a melted substitute for the snowman in a bucket where he was sitting originally....

Snowman was found slumped over in the golf cart in the AM with an ice pack on his head, cans littered all around, maybe a collision or two, every busnut claimed those dents weren't there before...

There were mutterings from some quarters about a foreigner, but I didn't see one?

I was amongst the earliest risers for the bacon and egg breakfast, so how could it have had anything to do with me?

This is all I know, faithfully reported with no names or licence plates recorded. The intimate details are staying in Clio. And no brat to bear witness!

happy coaching!

My wife and I will be attending.  We don't have our bus road-ready yet, but we enjoy the friends.

There will be a round-table discussion Friday afternoon on "Bus Electrical Systems and Design"  I want to be in that... I need it.

See you all there!
