Yeah, me too! It sucks.

And to top it off, my daughter just called and said someone hit the Explorer and took off. Busted taillight and bumper.

That'll be out of my pocket!

Palmetto Cove is a Rally Park near Cleveland, SC. if you cannot find Clevand on the map, it is a little ways northwst of Greenville, SC. If is a great little RV park with a fantasatic view.  SE Busnuts are holding a rally there in April, 2010.  Jack

Hello everyone!  Sorry I wasn't at Jack's rally. From all reports, it was one of the best.
I am hosting the SouthEast Bus Nuts spring rally at Palmetto Cove. As Jack said, above, this rally park is in Cleveland, SC, about an hour west of I-85 and Spartanburg. The official dates are April 22-25.
This is one beautiful park. A warm invitation to one and all to come and join us! Details will come later about schedule and fees, etc.

Luckly we got to see many photos of Jack's rally this year for those of us not fortunate enough to attend this year.

Mike,
We are looking forward to this rally also in April, I am sure there will be many more SouthEast Busnuts attending this year.  

There is another Rally also on the East Coast for those wishing to start the year early, this is the fist one on the East Coast that I know of intended for Eagle owners but I know everyone is welcome to attend in March of 2010 at Santee, SC.  arranged by John & Tara Mellis.  Information on this rally should also be posted soon on the bulletin boards. We hope to see many of you newbiees there as well with or without your rigs.

Now I hope I have not hi-jacked anyone's post here, all these rallies are fun to attend and gather with friends at. Make it a new years resolution right now, you won't be sorry.  
Gary

Nice to here from you, how are you and the wife doing, we missed you too at Bk's this year.

Ned;

I fell your pain about not being at Jack's, I want to go so bad and am going to do every thing can to be there next year. I would love to meet a lot of those guy's and gal's. I have looked at the pic's and am jealous.

uncle ned

OK, 1st let me explain a little something. The main reason I called Ned, was that I was siiting with a bunch of super nice Eagle owners and Sonnie asked me "how is Ned doing?"
Well I'll be honest, I hadn't gotten any recent updates so I pulled my phone out and called. After wishing Wilma a Happy New Year and asking her how Ned was, she said "hang on, I'll let you talk to him!"
So while she was getting him, I handed my phone to Sonnie and  said "here surprise him!"
So Sonnie and Ned talked a few, then I took my turn, and Jerry Liebler was walking by, and I handed him my phone. Then Jerry gave me the phone back and took off, and I saw Jack heading near us, So I handed him the phone. About that time Jerry came back and relayed a msg. from Kyle to Ned. Well after all that was over we said our Happy New Years adn see's ya laters and hung up!

Now I had full intentions of calling Cody & Libby, Don Fairchild and several others too. But it was getting chilly out, and I was wearing shorts. SO I went to my bus and got some sweat pants to change into. (since my bus has no window coverings, I went to the porta potty across the road from it to change!)
Well as I bent over to pull the sweats up I heard flop, plop! And at the same time my shirt pocket got lighter!
Well I can't repeat what I said, but you can imagine. I reached up and felt the pocket to verify what I was afraid had just happened did in fact happen!
And of course it had, everything in my shirt pocket (cell phone, note pad, and 2 ink pens) fell in the crapper! I was mad!
(names left out below to respect the privacy of those who asked for it!)
So I go back to the party and tell several folks I hope what just happened was the end to a shitty year and the start of one!
Well one busnut said why didn't you just reach in and grab it?
I said no way, that phone was junk anyway, it had a habit of "crapping out on me while in the middle of a call all the time!"
Then somebody asked what about all your #'s?
I said "well the #'s are sorta important to me, but not that important too me!"
Somebody else said "you mean you've never had to dig something out of a bus toilet that was stopping it up?"
I said "yes I used to have too all the time when I was working for my Uncle, but I pay people to do it now!"
Then one busnut said "my son will get for you for $20 bucks!"
I said "naw it still ain't worth it!" But then realized it was an AT&T style phone with a "Sims Card" that could be removed and put into a Wally World go phone and I'd be back in business!
So I said "let's go ask your son!" Well the son said no way, but the daughter said "$20 bucks? I'm all over that!"

So we grabbed a trash bag for her to use as a super large glove, and a strong flashlight and away we went. We showed her how to stick her hand down inside the bag so she could stay "clean" while finding the phone. Then we spot lighted the area it was most likely in since the note book and 2 pens were still floating exactly were they had been!
She reached in and instantly found and recovered it! She placed on the ground outside the crapper, and I used her "glove" to pick it up! I paid her and went and washed it off and let it sit in a bag over night. In the morning I took it apart and took the "Sims card" out. Then I made a quick trip to Wally World, bought a cheapie go phone and was back in biz! (worked like a charm, except some of my #'s were stored in the phone instead of the Sims card. So I got the main #'s but not all of them!

SO Uncle Ned was the last person called in 2009!

So a special thanks goes to you know who you are and yer daughter, tell her I said thanks again. (I'd been totally lost without recovering most of those #'s!)

BK you should see the things that are dropped in the johns on airplanes.  I have used the trash bags to retrieve wallets,rings and even a camera. Cell phones were still mounted in autos back then.  No 20$ then either.  Just a job we were paid well for back in the day.
