The Texas Bus Roundup 2011 is set for August 11-14, 2011 at Coffee Creek RV Resort in Santo, TX.....approx 50 miles west of Fort Worth.  Coffee Creek has blocked 35 spaces for our rally including a very nice clubhouse with a full kitchen & large BBQ grill.  The camping spaces are 92' pull-thrus with 30 & 50 amp full hookups for $30.00 per night.  They are big rig & pet friendly.  The camping spaces are blocked, but you will need to contact Renee at Coffee Creek directly to pay a deposit & reserve your spot.....remember to tell them you're with the "Texas Bus Roundup".  If you want to arrive early or stay later they will extend the rally rate for your entire stay.  There are also cabins on site or nearby hotels if you want to join the rally without a bus.  You can learn more about Coffee Creek and their amenities by visiting their website.  Here is their contact info:

We will also have Tshirts available for the first time. As we are celebrating our fifth anniversary we thought it would be appropriate to offer these.

You will be able to purchase them at the rally for our cost of $16.95 each. Very high quality Hanes, not the cheaper stuff you find at the box stores.

No, I did not design these, Becky did! Grin I'm not that talented!

Sizes: Mens - S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL



Sizes: Ladies - S, M, L, XL, XXL



This is going to be a fun time, looking forward to seeing Y'all there!

Darrin,

We have never been to a bus rally. What sort of things do yall do? Is it kid friendly? We have 2 to 4 kids that travel with us. If someone comes to the rally in a S&S, you guys won't chase'em off with pitchforks will ya?

Now that one, that one was a hoot!  I liked that. 

If my memory serves me well, there were a couple of TT's there last year and nothing was said about it.  One of the things that I appreciate about TBR is the fact that it is "open to just about anyone in the bus community" to attend.  That to me is the best part of it, the variety of the coaches and the different makes and models that attend.

Looks like Darrin and Paul picked out a good location for this one this year.

Jack, you have been a member for 5 years now and only 27 post. If your bus is not done you can't use the excuse of more time on the board than working on the bus. Give us some insight on your bus sometime.

Anyone who has an interest in buses, either owning one or a wanabe is more than welcome! Kids, dogs and parrots are welcome too! The park has cabins available for those that don't own an RV, TT's and 5ers are welcome also. Rod can relate to that. Wink

This is our fifth anniversary and it's a very special rally for us. Laid back, lots of food and your favorite beverage will keep you happy! Swapping stories and just plain having fun with a bunch of bus nuts is a great way to spend a long weekend.

Darrin chose the date and location so his kids can spend some time enjoying the pool and not worry about school. I'm sure if Jeff and Darlene make it they will enjoy the fact that other children will be there to spend time with theirs.

After the rally Becky and I plan to head to Sonnie's place for a little fix on the Eagle, then north to Cody for an Eagle rally. Will then be heading to Vancouver, WA to anchor down at a bus nuts place for a few months. Need to spend some time in the Northwest to visit family and friends. My parents are in their 80's and are looking forward to our visit.

Let's pray the price of fuel drops like a rock! Grin 2800 + miles for this trip...........Can't wait to hit the road and hammer down! Cool

Now that is optimism, I must admit.  Insert a happy face here.



Time to air bag the old hoopie Paul?  That why you are heading to Sonnies?

Most likely not going to like the answer, but I am going to ask anyway.  "How do you keep a dream alive for five or ten years without taking it out occasionally and driving it or spending time in it (relaxing)?"

Don, You guessed correctly! The wings are weak and in need of some boost! I just hope he finishes his current project by then! Wink I saw that sign though an email lately and just smiled.

Pete & Polly, Of course you guys can come! It's a bus isn't it! Grin Besides, I"ll bet everyone's rig is in progress, I know ours is.

See Y'all there!

That is why I like this forum.  Although I might rib a person about Eagles and how kewl they are but never ever would I think about putting myself or anyone else in a higher or lesser class because of the bus they ride.  I don't know of any bus that goes down the road that I don't ougle over, even the yellow one with Yuma Babtist Church written on the side.

Paul we are trying to arrange our training schedule.  We are set to be in Weatherford the weekend before the rally and Taylor the weekend of the rally.  I need to work some magic but we shall see.  It would be nice of we can switch the weekends, that way we will be only a few miles from the rally after training the dogs.  That clinic is usually done by noon.

Are you married Don?  Cheesy Cheesy Gotta laugh. I do have to admit that I have spent more time working on the ole girl this year than using it. A big difference between the "ole girl" and the "ole lady"!! Cheesy Cheesy Now that the "ole girl" is ready to roll along with the weather the "ole lady" keeps finding weddings and graduations we have to attend of people I don't know or could care less about..... It looks like this dude needs a toad and a big cardboard waving hand as I leave for the weekend!!! One of my girlfriends from years back owns a liquor store here in town. Lets just say we are on a first name basis and leave it at that. Her husband seems to drag his feet when it comes to hitting the camping trail  as does my spouse (3rd cousin's nephew's 12 year surprise birthday party  Angry). If push comes to shove I am sure we can find an attitude adjustment for those that could use a kick in the butt.

I drove down last week and took a look at it and checked the progress on the job.  William's coach has a lot of problems, it has turned out to be quite a can of worms.  Sonnie has the engine in now and is doing a lot of metal fabricating work on the carriage and mounts.  He also has to move the leveling jacks and I believe it is getting bagged too.  It is going to be first class when he gets it done, but it would overwhelm me in about a New York minute.
