Tom,

My brother live in MD, and that state has some of the most restrictive laws regarding it's citizens. I would move regardless.

Buddy, If you were any closer to Oklahoma, I would have them brought over to my 40 acres.  My two Scenicruiser's could use some company.  We don't have any problem's out here.  Heck, my neighbor has a collection of maybe over 50 Ford Taurus's that he buys at auction and then resells to his renters of his trailer park at high interset, and when they can't pay he repos them and resells them to another sucker.
Send the old girls out here, and I'll watch over them.

Kyle,
I wish I were still @ our property in Union City where I could start a bus storage yard that could house as many buses as any of us wanted to store there.
But I'm not and we are tight on space as it is now.

As you already know I am a big "Cruiser" fan and would love to have one. But I would have no place to store it even if I were to "acquire" one and somehow come up with the $ to get it towed home.

I wish there was some way to get the property down the road from us that has 10 acres, a HUGE shop 160'X200' and an unfinished house in the country and used to by a recycling plant (so I doubt the neighbors will have any complaints about what goes back in there!), but again $ comes in the way!

I'll be looking and searching for a way on my end to help you save one!

Building a storage shed would be cheap enough, but the detention pond is cost prohibitive.
The real problem is the neighbor - she lives there & I don't - so she has unlimited access to make trouble - which is what she is doing.

I must move anything she can use against me out of her reach. Then I'll consider what options make the most sense.
She has been behind all of the negative issues I've had down there (her children did it & she covered up for them). Problem is, there is no proof that will hold up in court & she knows it.

 I know not everyone can but it would be nice if we were mobile enough to vote with our feet when Local and State Politicians get too restrictive, some restrictions are good some are bad. If taxpayers started leaving the over regulated repressive areas in droves when the restrictions become overbearing things would change. Another thing the more restrictions the higher the tax base seems to be.

 Here in rural Arkansas I can have as many projects as I want on my acreage ( I do keep things neat) the downside is someone can buy the 40 acres upwind of me and put in 5 poultry houses if they so desire.

Very true, and I am about to cast that vote myself.

  Thats the price of being free Rick. Hard to believe NC could be more restrictive that Minnesota though.


  As Benjamin Franklin was quoted as saying, "those who would give up a little freedom, for a little security, deserve neither."

  Its not just an old Bus we cant park on OUR property, its what we wanted to stop someone else from doing yesterday, that is coming back to bite us today. Before you act to stop your neighbor, ask yourself if there is something you like having the freedom to do that he might have a problem with. Most all of these rules are coming from tit for tat and an almost complete lack of personal responsibility. I suppose next they will try to ban Happy Meal Toys.

Maybe we should come up with a list of "stay away" states to publicly declare as a group that we won't tolerate their nonsense.  I would rather spend my time and money in States that value personal freedoms.  I have put Louisiana on my list  From what I've heard about MN, maybe it should be on there too.

  I really hope you find a good home for those Buses. I would probably be interested in the better one, but I already feel an MCI 9 is to big and heavy. A SC is Ginormous and no doubt very thirsty.

Why all the hate for Minnesota?  I live in Minnesota and I am not aware of a bunch of freedoms I am giving up by living here.

The major suburb I live in has some pretty liberal RV parking restrictions for the size of the city.  If your RV is on the side or back of your house it can be located anywhere as long as it is 5 feet from the property line.  It can even be in front of your house as long as it is on your driveway.  A lot of cities don't allow RVs in front of the house period.

I've heard a lot of horrible things about MN State police.  Then there was that episode a busnut had after a minor accident a few months ago.

I would love one of the Scenics. My Fiance' even has a place to park one. (I occasionally get the "hint" to keep looking for a bus, now that I have my CDL.). The issue is what it would take to get one in running enough condition to get it here...  Undecided

Good luck!

Scenics are lighter than a MC9. With seats & luggage racks removed - 25,000#

The rounded corners reduce wind drag. The 2 that I drove home averaged about 10 mpg running ~55 to 65 mph. The gps reported a max speed of 80 mph.

Just talked to the county. She was very interested in all the details - especially the verbal approval I was given  in 2007. I told her I may need more than 3 months to move them & she said that was fine & that considering the circumstances, as long as I was making an effort that they would work with me.
So now, my concern is not the county, but rather what the crazy neighbor will do next.

Thanks to those who have expressed intrest & encouragement. I have been giving this a lot of thought & am proceeding down a path that I believe will be the most productive.
I will be offering several for sale & I will make appropriate descriptions including photos.
I will investigate the appropriate venues for listing them - I may even try Ebay.  Shocked
