Jim,
Sorry I did not acknowledge your Birthday, Happy Birthday even though it is late.  I too hope to attend Arcadia this year, I have a few reasons to go down there this year.

You can bet I would be proud to sing any song Pat would love to have sung to her, it was my pleasure two years ago and any song Ole Merle Haggard sings I especially love to sing to her.  Pat is a real sweetie and we are proud to have you guys in our circle.

Good luck with the bus, again, keep us all informed.  If there is anything we can do as a family be sure to ask.

I'll reiterate... happy birthday, Jim, and sorry for all of your troubles of late.

You have the right attitude and spirit by counting your blessings to help put all of this in perspective. Hang in there and keep us posted on your bus (and Durango) issues.

Cheers,
Brian

Hi folks.  One of my good friends reminded me that I had not let you know that we made it to Bowling Green.  Pretty hard drive because of the almost 1300 miles in just over 2 days.

Pat McNeil (hope that spelling is correct) has his beautiful Scenicruiser here.  One of the folks who called about engines said that he thinks Pat has a Series 60 in it.  I hope to get his phone number and make an appointment to sneak away from the booth and get a picture or two.

Just cannot know how Pat built such a beautiful bus when he couldn't even get the door hinge on the right side.

Has to be a engineering genius or very smart or know the right people.

It is 45 ft and 6 inches because his buddy had a 45 ft Prevo and he wanted his longer.

Jim - Pat would be a good one to talk to about your problems - I've not seen the S60 in that beautiful Scenic (last time I saw it was the 8v92) but I'm sure it's done right - FWIW

Ned - You never heard of suicide doors? LOL
