I may be able to come, but I need to know the total costs, and if I need to reserve for a full length space (60').

I am preparing for an inside showing of the bus during May, so I may ask everyone to do some work (LOL)

Everything has gotten really quiet about this rally lately.  Is it still on?  If so, who all is attending?

Still on even if it's just a few of us.... Wish my bus were in more later stages of conversion but I am gonna be there anyway... The outside has not been touched since I bought it but the inside at least is coming along ok. Inside first then outside... Make it livable then make it presentable, at least that's my way. And seriously, it's pretty fugly on the outside right now but at least I am going camping!

We have been trying to see if we could work it out where we could run down on Sunday morning but no one seems to be pushing the rally so I was afraid it had been canceled.  I'm glad it is still on. Who all is coming?  Why is everyone being so quiet about it?

Cat, Missy and I are going to be there. If you're coming, let me know. I've got an air ride seat for Dallas and I'll bring it with me if you let me know. I don'y know why nobody wants to come cause we have a lot of busnut close to the area. It'll be their lost and we'll have fun anyway. Come on down, we'll keep the coffee hot!!!!

The first annual Central Texas Spring Rally is officially over Sad ...We had 4 buses attend and a fun time was enjoyed by all.

Cat and Dallas made an appearance Sunday morning with some lively conversation. Thanks to Paul Robie for taking some pictures of the rally, hopefully he will post more later. It wouldnt have been an official Bus Rally if we didnt spend some time working on someones bus (thanks Richard  Grin)

My wife Darlene and I enjoyed meeting everyone and have decided that we will do another one next year.

Safe and Happy Busing until next year Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley

2 buses make a rally so you did twice as good. Memories and friendships were formed that will last forever.  Great isn't it.   Bob

Had a great time and met some great folks... Thanks so much to Jeff and his better half for hosting the rally... Glad Richard (rdbishop) made it home ok and it was really great to see all the differnet styles of busses, all MCI's by the way. Hmmmm, is that some sort of omen?  Anyway, I created a faceboof page for my bus if ya'll are interested where I will post a few pics from the rally, (though I did not take a whole lot)... the address is: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003703277611
