Cool.. this survey and thread pre-dates our bus infection, so it's good to see it come back. Thanks for bringing it back to life!

We're in our late 30s, and only into our second year of living/traveling in a bus full time. Loving every minute of it so far!

We've also been able to attend 4 official bus rallies during our course of travel, and have very much enjoyed them. Great people, met many new friends and learned bunches about keeping our bus on the road. We've also enjoyed giving back a little by giving seminars of our own about our tech projects.

I do think that many in our age range tend to utilize the internet more for our research and networking, but I do know that many of our age-peers do seek out rallies and in person opportunities to attend as well. 

I think what does happen however is those of us working full time jobs and/or raising families don't have as much time to contribute on the planning side of things in these events - which does leave the events themselves more planned towards different generations in terms of food selections, activities and entertainment. 

I did my best to change that at the last two rallies we attended by putting on fire dancing performances and giving hooping lessons Smiley

Hi All, I'm 62 grew up in LV, mom & dad bought me a model railroad set & had a toy bus, had an aluminum Streamline Trailer looked like observation car and early buses. In the 70's  I would see intercity and tour buses as I was commuting to LA to work and thought how I could turn baggage bay into bedroom with hatch, when I  looked at my bus for the first time and it had a hatch into the bay I was hooked! Tom, lvmci...

Does LVMCI = 62 (in Roman Numerals?)

Is it not interesting the things that stick from those formative years.

I had not thought about some of the toys before I started getting bigger toys, and bigger and bigger !!  LOL

Thank you for sharing. Brought back some long forgotten memories.

PCC,  I had to shoot a forced perspective shot of a tourist steam train at a proposed stop at a hotel in the little village of Jean, with a HO Scale train set, (this was in the early 1990's)  when I thought it might add something if I included a bus, yes shades of childhood toys, & I was able to keep the train set they paid for and gave it to my kids! As for lvmci, I don't think it adds up in Roman numerals, maybe Etruscan numerals! There is that thread thing, where something popsup, disappears then reappears that happens often in my life, lvmci...

I think you should have 70-80 and 80-90 just for fun since 70 is kind of young!
