Well we could not make it last year,  the 1st one that we missed.  Angry  We are planning on being there this year since i don't have a job for the summer yet. We are going to take off Monday morning and be there sometime in the afternoon. Grin  I figure that with my luck they will call me with a job right after we get there.

John,
I'll be leaving early Monday morning so I would say sometime that morning on the way back down. Can you PM me the address so I can put it in the GPS? I may not remember how to get there from last time. Thanks.

Hi, folks. I would like to go, but I don't see any way that I can work it this year. I'm back down in Kingman for the time being.

It's a good event to attend, for those that can make it.

Take care.

Sorry I can't make it this year Sad. Taking my boys to a dirt bike race with the new bus.

Will miss you all. Like PVCCES says, it is a really good place to go. Meet lots of busnuts, see lots of different buses, learn a lot at seminars and by talking to people...

My  new refer has install problems and the seller won't be here till this afternoon.  He was on vacation.  Did you ever have one of those projects that.....?  I didn't have to remove the door frame to get the old refer out and they are supposed to be the same width so "why for" do I .....  Missing parts!  THE SHELVES don't fit....too wide by an inch.  Being told that there is a technique...can't wait to see that one.   Soooooo, no RV in all its faded glory after 37 abusive years.  But she is coming back for her last year with a vengeance.

A medical appointment popped up for Thursday afternoon.  Be there Sat and Sun only.  I commute.

Clifford, i decided this year that i wanted to park on the grass with a little room around us.  Smiley  The big boys block my view too much. Grin   On a side note, we did an air bag replacement on a Prevost today....... even they have a problem once in a while. Wink

Bill, it went ok, had some minor hassle getting it out, had to wait while somebody found a place that had a fitting that we needed.  After that it went back together pretty quick. Sorry to hear about your phone. Smiley

Hope I saw some of you guys on my way to Texas via I-5 to Stockton, to 99 South to Bakersfield, and east on 40.  I saw several conversions and honked and waved at as many as I saw.  There were many Prevost on the road, saw one white Screamin Eagle, and a white MC9 going the other way as I was on the road to the Grand Canyon.   I am in a blue MC9.

Regards, to all!
