We got are pipline job done today, leaving for AZ tomarrow, got lucky on the North Dakota weather, only had a week or two of below 0 night temps and wind chills, bus stayed warm, did freeze and have to patch a couple water lines, do a better repair, when we get south.
So watch out Clifford and Van we headed your way.

Hey Matt,

Were you parked in southern Wyoming in October? I saw a green Eagle there. Your picture doesn't show very well, so can't tell if if your bus looks like the one I saw. It had a matching
Jeep with it, too, I think.

Just curious.

craig


Update:::

Well, now I'm pissed. I looked at your previous messages, and found that it was indeed your Eagle that was parked in the campground north of
Baggs back in October!

I'm from Baggs! My family lives there (Conoco station on the South end of town). I was there at the end of Oct for a couple days! I saw your coach
and didn't stop in because somehow I missed your previous messages and didn't know it was a busnut from the board, and I was a little short of time.

Well crap!

We'll stop next time, if we see you. We usually spend a week in the mountains fishing during July or August. Not sure if we'll get to Baggs this summer
as we're planning a trip to AK, but maybe on the way home in late Aug/early Sept.

Stop in and say hello to my Mom and brother at the Conoco if you get back. Currently, it's the only place to buy gas there.

Speaking of South, We are.  South Florida that is.  We're at Jack's place.  Just isn't the same as it used to be.  Lot's of friends, projects to work on, great food, a little bluegrass, but somehow, just not the same.

Oh wait, that's it.  No Gumpy fudge has shown up this year!!!!  Sad Sad  UPS must be on strike somewhere North of here.   Cheesy Cheesy

Hey Clifford; you're sure a trusting soul. Do you think for one minute I'd get out of the Diners parking lot without devouring YOUR stuffed burger?

And Dan--- I've up graded to Marie Callender TV dinners. No more Chef Boy-ar-dee for me. (unless its an emergency)

Back to the topic; Matt we'll see  you at M&c's unless you leave before Tuesday AM.

Update, woke up at Little America WY To snow and chain restrictions, waited out the lifting of chain deal and headed west on a sheet of ice and compact snow, first time for me driving a bus on these kind of roads, thought it was going to be like the cabover trucks, bus handled great never made a slip, the only scary stuff was the little car or big trucks going up hill to slow or cutting in front of me coming down.
Made it to Provo UT, at a real nice RV park , with a guy that will wash this very road dirty bus and jeep for 70 bucks, going to take him up on it and head on down to ST George Mon.
Matt
Got a pretty good story about two old ranchers in FT. Bridger WY, and a big ol Silver Eagle bus turning around on there feed grounds, i will tell later.
