I just wanted to give a shout out to the Eagles International folks for inviting us and making a "Some Other Band" owner and his wife fell very welcome at their rally in Nashville. I saw some amazing, beautiful coaches and meet some of most legendary and nicest people in the bus world.

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ken, it was good to talk to you yesterday.  I am glad that you enjoyed the "crazy" Eagle folks Grin Grin Grin

Given your skills with DDEC software, I suspect that some of the Eagle folks were glad you were there Cheesy  I have not talked to Wayne yet, but I know he was looking forward to spending some time with you.

I hope you can make it to the Eagle Branson rally so that we can have a more leisurely visit (pretty hectic at the BCM rally).

Ken   Did they make you park over in the corner. That's where I had to park at Myrtle Beach last year.

Still a great bunch,especially that guy "WAYNE" with a big fish on his eagle.Hate that I could not come.

Even Tom has left the eagle bunch and has a PREVO.

Ned,
They made me park in back next to the back up beeper test company that runs 3 shifts 7 days a week and I had to wear a paper bag over my head during daylight hours. The paper bag thing was not too unusual except that the request came from someone besides my wife.

That paper bag thing might have been, not to upset the eagle owners and make them feel self-conscious cause the prevost folks are so good looking!

I just want be sure that everyone understands thatís my attempt at humor. I parked just across from Sonnie and down from Tony. No beeper test company, no paper bag requests.

I agree with Ned, Bus nuts are good folk.

No offence taken, we were parked with the Eagles at Indio last January, what a great bunch and excellent chefs also. A first class group. Then we went to Quarzite and joined up with the GM owners, another great bunch. I'm think the rivalry is good for the soul and keeps the mind active also. I can't find where the Prevost owners boon dock or do they??

Old man told me years ago at a RV spot, Prevost owners park close in enough so they will deliver champagne to um.  I was in my HR Gasser. He was driving a good looking Bluebird. We both had a good laugh.

Just a few Fraser will you see dry camping in Prevost most of those owners are married to power poles in Quartzsitel they will drop in as you saw at the rally and run the generators 20 hrs a day lol that is why we park those in back.

We do let Bob Evans and Wilbur park on the front row did you notice where they stuck Wes in his H=45 he was married to the power pole over in the corner

Ken, Thank You and your wife for coming to the rally. I enjoyed very much our conversation I just wish we had more time. I am still trying to remember all that you showed me. You and all Prevost ( and any other SOB) are welcome at our rallies. You might get the plastic Eagle treatment so don't be surprised.

When I first switched teams from my 4104 GMC I caught all kinds of grief from my friend Pat Mc. He said you'll get some shinny patent leather shoes and you'll never be the same. He's the one always tied to a pole at bike week in Daytona and I'm dry camped in the gravel. My bus has enough solar panels to generate 7 amps at 24 volts on a sunny day, it does OK in a parking lot. My bus and I fit in best with a group of folks that have dirt / grease under the finger nails or just spent several minutes digging it out (or not) before a bologna sandwich and some chips.

After lurking on the Eagles Board I have a question for my Eagle friends. How many feet of 1 1/2" tubing would I need to buy before I could join the Eagles forum?? (That's supposed be funny, you know LOL)

Ken, as you may know, you are more than welcome to join the Eagles International forum.  By joining, you will be able to read and post on any of the public forums. 

We hope you become more than just a lurker, although that is welcomed as well.

200 feet gets you a basic membership. 300 feet gets you a gold membership. 400 feet gets you a platinum membership. And 600 feet gets you a lifetime membership. Remember that must be delivered to  Johnstown Co . Looking forward to you joining the club.

You'll probably put me out in the back from now on too - you haven't heard my aircooled Onan up close.  But if you listen carefully today you'll likely hear it all the way from western Canada.

We went to a GM rally on a casino parking lot south of Tucson a few years ago.  They were pretty welcoming to our customized GMC.

Eric,
 Thanks for the complements. I hope be able to attend another rally with all of you again. My installation works, yours looks great, your installation could be a standard by which all others should be judged. Iím not even worthy to look in your engine compartment.

Since Wayne has defined how many feet of 1 ĹĒ tubing that is required for membership. I admit, I donít have enough yet. I found 17 feet in my metal rack. I feel like that should be enough to allow guilt free lurking especially since itís starting to rust a little.
