Thanks Bryce, but you didn't answer my question.  Our airbag that goes down overnight.  Someone said it may be the levelor valve.  Is this the kind of project we could do when we are there? If we need new parts like airbag, level valve, etc, will we be able to get them while we are there?

Novice I'm sorry I totally spaced the question ! In fact I had to go back and reread to find out what it was, Yes this is the type of project we're talking about, and yes it is possible we can get parts (I got some, and I got a couple other sources who have them on the shelf) but I can't guarantee what we'll need until we find the problem! Also it is not uncommon for the airbags to go down overnight on older buses so you may want to take this into consideration as to how much $ you wanna spend on the one as fixing it could just be in vain if the others start doing it in the near future! I'm not trying to talk you outta fix'n it just want ya to consider the options! BK  Grin

"Hey, Hey, Hey! It's ___ ______ 'EY" (If you remember where that came from you are atleast as old s I am, and yes I some what resemble the "guy" who used to say it! LOL!) Anyway I just came back from the PO Box and got another registration form back! That's 2 NOW! 2nd one is from Miami, FL ! [/b][/size][/color] And I've had some phone call confirmations! One gent who lives near my Dad in Gilbertsville, KY (Calvert City/Benton AREA) called Dad and said he just got back from an 8,000 mile trip to Alaska & back in his 9 and is planning on making it an hour down here for the bash! So Hey,Hey,Hey! Ya'll fuel prices are dropping (I made a phone call to the oil companies and told tem they were killing the "Folks who wished they could afford to come to the TN FALL BUS BASH[/color]" and they told me they'd see what they could do! LOL!!! ** and if ya believe that I got Swamp land in AZ & Ocean front property in TN for sale too!** LOL!) Seriously folks ! I only paid $2.63 a gallon yesterday! Yea! I know it still needs to come down a couple more dollars a gallon, but hey that land I got for sale is priced right! LOL! Ok folks time is getting nearer and I'm not depressed 'bout having to refund NCBob all that extra $ he spent for a prime/private spot LOL! 'cause if 2 more buses besides him show up, I can space 'm out 5 bus spots away from him on each side and still give him his 10 spots and keep his extra $ ! LOL! & if enough show up I'll have enough to be able to refund his extra $ LOL!  Just kidd'n Bob !

Hey Folks come on out and have a good time, we're gonna have at least 1 bus up from Miami, FL, and another who's been on an awesome journey to Alaska and back plus Bob and Jackie from NC by way of Timmonsville! Hopefully El Sonador will make it down from Canada also (even though he's extremely busy with his new biz aquistion these days!), he hasn't been able to confirm as of yet! (but this all started at his suggestion, and we're counting on him!)

Smiley Wink Cheesy Grin So everyone get off the couch (and into the COACH) & come on to the TN FALL BUS BASH![/size] And meet these folks who are doing what we all dream of doing! Using their coaches to TRAVEL!  (and long distances I might add!) Shocked Cool Roll Eyes Undecided[/color][/b][/size]

Think of the great stories, travel tips & suggestions you'll be able to get in person from these " World Travelers! " be here or or well just be somewhere less fun!

It looks like I will come if I can figure out the vacation time.  I already will end up with two and half unpaid days after my week trip at end of the month since I took my vacation time to work on the bus. 

I may see if I can convince the boss to loan me some vacation time since I bump up to four weeks vacation next year (not including two weeks sick time).  I don't see using all four weeks next year as two of my regular vacation trips overlap next year.  (We accrue vacation time throughout the year.)

I don't normally promote anything on this Board....but in this case...I'm extending a personal invitation to all who might be in the NW Tennesee area around the Halloween weekend to get on over to Union City and enjoys the comradrie and libations and of course the Pig Roast that Busted Knuckle is going to have for all of us that weekend. Tongue

Even though there hasn't been that many registrations yet, and if you haven't sent yours in...please do so...we're planning on this being the best party that area has seen in many years. Cheesy

So, search your calenders and get on board.  Knuckle has offered the use of the shop and the pit for those jobs you've been putting off and naturally your time will need to be scheduled.  The rest of us BusNuts will be happy to shout encouragement while we're enjoying watching someone else work. Huh

Time's running out...get that registration in.  I'll be happy to cancel all of my 10 reserved spots in favor of having another BusNut parked next to me! Grin

Aah, uhm ahhh, ummmm, well that cute little senorita and the bar ended up with most of YOUR $ ! So if I'm gonna refund any of yer extra $ there are gonna have to BE more people show up! LOL! I will be happy however to take ya'll into town and let ya enjoy some good old fashioned authentic Mexican food, drink and hospitality! LOL! BK!

Hey Folks let's start letting me know about how many to expect, so we can plan how to set up parking, purchase food, and plan events! Please even if you don't wish to pay 'til ya get here, PLEASE at least drop me a line or post here that your planning to attend! I'd hate to decide not buy the pig (especially since I spent Bob's extra spot $ already) and then have lots of people show up angry at me for not having it! Hot dogs anyone? BK  Grin

Opps! Let's modify this an start at the Deleware Rally! LOL!

Bruce & Nicks Gig Deleware Sept 22nd-24th
Eagles Bash Branson, MO Oct 2nd-5th
Dallas & Cats Shindig Timmonsville, SC Oct 5th-8th
Christy's Jersey Round Up Carthage, MO Oct 13th-15th
TN Fall Bus Bash @ Knuckle's Union City, TN Oct 26th-31st
PLEASE do not wait till the last minute to sign up or worse yet, just plan on dropping in.  All rallies take a lot of planning .  We must know how many folks are coming so we can plan the activities.  I am sure we plan for a few extra, but if we are overwhelmed with folks we did not plan for, that becomes unfair to everybody.  End of soap box!
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Get those registrations into Bruce/Nick, Byron, Dallas & Cat, Christy, & Me and look at all the fun you'll have going to Deleware to Branson, MO to Timmonsville, SC, to Carthage MO, and then here to Union City, TN for an excellent extended month long adventure of camping and commodere! BK!

So, now, here's a thought Shocked. . . look at the line up Wink. . . do you guys notice how a couple could just hit these rallies, one after another, bam, bam, bam.  I'm thinking that this should be an annual line-up. . . except Dallas' gathering should come, next year, the last weekend in September (if he's agreeable to that of course). . . the 29th, so that one could start in Delaware, head down to Timmonsville, head over to Branson, and then to Carthage, and then to BK's place in TN.  Wouldn't that be a cool run?  A month of bus-funnin'! Grin

So, what do you think?  Christy
