Doug,

Do you need hub or stud piloted? Clifford told me he is going to hub piloted sometime soon.

Paul I am trying toget up there but it is not looking like I will be there before friday night or saturday afternoon.

I don't understand they say the 24th is my last day but they can't do with out me friday and or saturday of this week.  I don't know how things are going to be any different next week.

If you go up 20 to 820 around ft. Worth you will see my bus it is still setting in front of Cowser tire between hwy 156 and Mark 4 parkway on the south side of the road.

How are you looking for fire wood this year?

I need stud piloted.  I acutally have a set of hub piloted wheels that the guy who sold me the bus gave to me. At the time I did not verify that they were the correct ones, and did not realize it until I was ready to use them.  So if anyone needs a set of hub piloted aluminum, wheels I have 6

Will I get run out of the camp ground if I show up in a school bus?  I may not have any choice if I can't get the bus ready.  I started it yesterday and the alt is not working and it has only been on there for about an hour of run time.  I might have wired it up back wards the first time I put it on.  I am not sure it worked ater that.

Bob,

Just get here when you can, we'll keep the light on for ya! Firewood would be nice, whatever you can bring. It's going to be cool enough this year to enjoy it! I would think you have stud piloted, but who knows for sure, if you have a stud with a square end you have stud piloted. That's so you can tighten down the inner before you install the outer on a set of duals. Hub piloted you just slap them on and torque 'em.

Doug,

Are you going to bring the wheels with you? If not maybe you could post the exact dimensions, someone might be interested.

We arrived late last night, about midnight. It seems the spaces are full, first time for that. We do have one available as one couple could not make it. Let me know upon arrival if they say all spots are taken. I'm going to the park office and check in this morning, I'll let them know.

Make sure you tell them you are with The Texas Bus Roundup at Cedar Hollow Group Area. We'll find a spot for any latecomers, we might have to double up on the pedestals though.

It's gonna be a good one!

Paul

Our 24th coach rolled in late last night, with maybe 1 or 2 coming in today. The weather has been much better this year, especially yesterday, bright and sunny.

We have 4 GM's, 8 MCI's, 4 Flxible's, 7 Eagles and one Prevost. I'll post more specific information after we arrive back home and get the information/pictures sorted out.

This is a beautiful 1947 Flxible Clipper, one of four Flixible's from the Flixible Owners Club.

David and John,

The Flxible belongs to Richard & Bernice Quisenberry from Marietta OK. They are part of the Flxible Club that had 4 coaches here this year. You should see the inside, very well done with a Route 66 theme. I'm not sure if they are members here or not. I handed out the magazines that "The Gang" sent me and spoke of the new owners, you might see some new members pretty soon. I think next year we'll have a bunch of them show up to join in the fun.

We had the 26th coach show up yesterday afternoon, a 4104 from Sherman TX. It looks like we've outgrown this site and will be looking for a bigger place for next year. We've already started making plans to coincide with the Eagle rally in Branson, and Christy and Larry Hicks rally in Carthage Missouri, we're going for three rally's back to back in a 2 week span.

We all got full on BigJohns and Blu's chili last night along with desserts provided by the attendees. We sure know how to eat!

Here is a shot of Bob & Sandi Gilbert's Eagle with a fresh paint job.





We're all heading out today, it is sad time when we have to break camp. We've had a great time this year, doubled in size from previous years, many new faces and coaches. It just keeps getting bigger and better every year.

Man I sure wish I could have made it to the rally.  I am on call for the third week in a row.  I am not griping though, the company across the street from my office had a 1500 person layoff.  If they want me to work another year of on call I would do it.  I just really wanted to go to this rally.

On another note.  What would it take to host a rally.  I have a small place between Houston and San Antonio that was my folks place handed down.  It is out in the sticks where nobody would bother us.  There is plenty of wood for a fire, plenty of cooking wood.  The only thing it does not have would be electrical hook ups.  We have water but the electrical capacity could not sustain even one bus let alone 50.  There is a pond for fishing.  The place is about 80 acres.  It has a big BBQ pit that can do about 11 briskets at a time.  I got a big bean pot that can make enough beans to feed an army.  We could have a fish fry!!!

If this were to happen there my folks, God rest them, would be proud of that.  Their dreams were to get on a bus and go.  40 years of raising children and I was the last.  They were just about to go and things went south for them.  I believe that is why at so young of an age I bought a bus.  I want to go!  I don't want to get caught in a fix later in life and not be able to go.  My wife and I are going all the way to Alaska straight up the Alaskan Hwy, the first day I retire.  7 years and counting.  We intend to do a reverse snowbird.  It is so freakin hot down here all the time we want to escape the heat like the northerners want to escape the cold.  When the spring time snows clear the roadway we will be on it.  We intend to stay until Canada goose season starts then drop down for the opener in Canada.  When that is over we will come home.  Then the next year do it all again.

Oh yes I do tend to ramble on.  The rally, What do yall think?

All you need to do is set a date, give advanced notice, post in on the board, email all of your bus buddies, they'll email their buddies, you get the idea.  Wink Try to set the date so it doesn't interfere with dates for other bus rallies, plan way ahead, sit back and we/they will come.

As far as no electrical hookups, no problem as most of us can boondock, crank up the genset and kill dem skeeters!

Remember, it only takes two buses to have a rally, anymore than that just increases the fun you have and more lies are told.

Sounds like you have a great spot, you just have to let people know you want to hold a rally and it will happen.
