OK this thrown out there way back when that we were gonna have another busnut gathering.

Well "The Don" & I have been trying to decide the best dates.

He is coming from CA. So we kinda set the dates according to when he can make it.
We are leaning heavily towards Aug. 24,25,26.
But if it were more convienent for more people to do it Labor day weekend Aug 31, Sept. 1, & 2.

So pipe up an let us know what ya think.

John that would be great!

Of course anyone wanting to show up early or stay late is welcome too!

With the charter bus biz there is less chance of buses coming and going in the middle of the night during the Aug. 24-27th weekend, but anything is possible.

I know for a fact that several will be coming & going on labor day weekend.

I personally lean to the Aug 24-27 dates because our business is always dead in Aug.
And I already have trips booked on labor day weekend.

But we are flexible and will adjust according to a majority vote!
Hint, hint, wink, wink !

Folks I need your input here!

If I managed to make it down I would rather do labor day weekend for vacation reasons.  I'm running out of vacation in part because I am going to Bendix Air Brake school the first full week of June in Chicago.

Well Now,

It looks as though we are getting specific, both on dates and parking.

The 24 thru 27 dates get my vote as does my previous parking position. 

Oh wait, you've moved?

Well it was almost gonna be the 24th -26th dates, but now there is SOME interest in Labor day weekend.

I guess we'll see if anyone else chimes up before making it final!

I will be there but I need at least a week's notice. It is a long way from western NC when you go the way I do. Hope Kentucky has got a bigger ferry.  It will save me a big detour.

I can taste the tri tips and the trip to Lambert's.

BK do I need to bring my own big oak tree.

Looking forward to seeing every one and showing Don the good way back to NC.

No need to bring an Oak tree Ned, we have trees. (mostly sycamores, but they have shade too!)

OK Bringing this back up to the top of the chart again one last time before making the dates definite.

We proposed either the weekends of
August 23rd, 24th, & 25th   
or August 31st, September 1st, & 2nd.... (LABOR DAY weekend)

We are tentatively going for the August 23rd, 24th, & 25th right now as the responses we've received in favor of either weekend have been about 50%-50% and it looks as though it would be easiest on "The Don" who's traveling all the way from CA for this. And also my business will be slower then too!

SO IF YOU have anything to add that might sway it one way or the other SPEAK NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE!

As always anybody & EVERYBODY is invited!
Early arrivals and late departures are welcome too!

You are correct Don most of the people like the front of the cow better 

In Texas we made ground beef or stew meat with that part of the cow only Californians could come with BQ for those things lol  but I still call you my friend ok

Good luck

Rick we're 50 miles farther south now, but easier to find because we're right on US 70 now, and not out in the boonies like we used to be. LOL!

Don

Don I agree you had no warning on the sinking as soon as you left the gravel. I was on the phone (with Cody I think, who was broke down in WI @ the time) and trying to get out there to stop you from backing in, but as we all know I didn't make it in time.

As far as the Revcon goes......
Can you tow a "toad" that big without drawing to much attn. from law enforcement?
And if we're gonna tempt Cody with a "Revcon" we gotta do it on the other board as he's still banned here. Wink

I don't know Bryce you think a revcon would work as a towed, theres still no engine in it and it need tires, I would need to build a tow bar but I think it can be done.  Maybe mom & Dad would like it when were through with it.

Our address is 22150 E. Main, Huntingdon, TN 38344.

Main is the same @ US 70 and we're 1/4 mile off the "bypass" that goes "around" Huntingdon on US 70 going toward Camden, TN

We're exactly 1/2 way between Nashville & Memphis 15 minutes north of I-40 @ exit 108 (hwy 22)
