We plan to be there unless dirt covers my face.  I will have my DR drive me if if I have to, lord knows he owes me for the Porsche payments I have made. Glen rice, I am counting on you as well.  I'm already grinning.
Gary

Gary,

I should be around and would be glad to drive your motor home up there for you.

I don't know, I haven't checked. We've been having good rain lately, so I'd think the flow is good.

Yeah, big deep water!   See you and Paula there!   And 'Huggy Bear'....and Gary... Grin
What's the dates Kyle?  I just looked at the calendar and didn't see Palmetto Cove listed...?  Probably missed it.   I like to ax questions first and research later...so now I'll go thru this thread...
Talked to Dave Lang and he's indicating he and Carol will be there.

JR, good to hear from you!
From the first post on this thread
"Mark your calendars
October 4th thru 10th (early arrival & staying later is welcome)"
  Grin

Glad to hear Dave & Carol will be there. Dave will be happy to hear I've decided to go with a 450hp 8V92 in mine. Now, all I have to do is find enough parts to put one together.  Cool

Sounds like you will have a successful Non-Bus Rally again Kyle, Our busnut family is getting tighter and look forward to spending more time together.  I am still having a terrible time with darn Vertigo, going to DR. Today for who know what else is next.  I appreciate the offers to drive our rig up there if needed and I will surely take advantage of these offers if necessary.  Thanks again, I will let you know days before our weekend party.  

Drive Safe you guys, so glad Jack & Paula, Ned and Wilma, Jr & Terri, Dave & Carol, Ed & Ann and all the others that responded will again be there. Hard to remeber everyone, please don't feel left out, As it won't be long now.   Hopefully I can give that Kyack of mine a test run with you Jack.  Hope you understand if for some reason I cannot, dizziness sucks!!

Hey Ed,
Any chance you can bring some parts off that marine 8V92 you were talking about?
I could use a pair of heads, blower & turbo.  Grin

Kyle,
   Waiting on them to get that boat out of the water and the wood/fiberglass guys to cut a hole in the rear bulkhead for the engines to get out!
I am going to be right there probably helping my friend get those puppies out. I am hoping to get them for scrap price. Don Fairchild has first dibs if I can get them and he wants to come this far.If not from what I have been told they are good for parts not seperate 8v92.Heck we might have to put a 16v92 in one of yours.
See Ya soon,
Ed

Ed, I've considered installing a V16.
Would probably be best to put the engine in the bays to keep the drive shaft length reasonable. Then I'd have a rear garage!
With a mid mounted engine, I could drive both rear axles - WOO HOOO! I could do an 8 tire burnout!  Cool Then I wouldn't have to worry about date codes on the drive tires.  Grin
I would have to be concerned about making it to the next fuel stop tho . . . .  Shocked


Naaa, I'll stick to conventional for the first one anyways. . . .

It's getting close.  Show of hands, who all is going? (Raising my hand) We plan to arrive on Tuesday or Wednesday.  JacK

PS: Kyle, can ya'll order some rain BEFORE for the rally so there will be enough water in the Saluda?
