The First Class issues of the March 2013 BCM magazines have started arriving, and the Standard Print issues will be arriving shortly. Please allow up to three weeks to receive your magazine. This magazine is going out late (again), but we are definitely working on that problem and expect to soon have this resolved. If you haven’t received your magazine by the end of the first week in April, please contact me and I will send one out to you using First Class delivery that day or the following day.
Some folks are having problems receiving their magazine. If you have been with BCM for a while, you know this has always been an ongoing problem that has never been able to be resolved. But the bottom line is, USPS Standard Class mail does not always get delivered. It gets a low priority and sometimes just gets tossed out or lost. With the advent of discontinuing Saturday delivery of mail, we are predicting it will only get worse.
The only sure fire way to guarantee you receive you magazine monthly, if you are having a problem, is to upgrade to a First Class subscription. We have no control over the delivery of the magazine, but we do know every subscriber that is on our mailing list is mailed a copy directly from the printer. The current Publisher, Gary Hall, had the same problems several years ago and he lives less than 15 miles from the printer that mailed the magazines. After upgrading to First Class delivery, he never missed an issue.
This issue contains the following articles; An Off Grid Paradise on Wheels
by Roger Lehet When You Have An “All Electric” Coach, ALL of Your Electric Needs To Work
by Bruce Fay Where I Take My Bus
by Larry McHale To Convert or Just Dream
by Jon Halcomb Down in the Keys

We have been very generous in mailing out magazines to Bus Enthusiasts, whose subscriptions have expired. We have been giving subscribers the benefit of doubt, because we failed to include the expiration dates on the magazine labels until our January issue. Unfortunately we will have to discontinue this practice starting with this issue, as printing and mailing the magazines are very expensive as you can imagine. If you are not sure when your subscription expires, please look at the expiration date on the mailing label on your envelope or poly wrap. If it has expired, or is close to expiring, please renew your subscription now so you won’t miss a single issue.
You can renew your subscription immediately on our website at www.BusConversions.com
by clicking on the Magazine tab, and choosing the sub-tab “Subscribe-USA” (or the appropriate tab) at the top. If you would like detailed instructions on how to renew on-line, please contact me and I will email you the instructions immediately. Or you can fill out the Subscription Form that comes with your magazine and mail it back to us.
Some readers with expired subscriptions may have already received, or will soon receive a letter from Linda (Gary’s sister), our Accountant, regarding past due subscriptions. If you have any questions about your subscription, or have an address changes, please email Linda at Linda@BusConversions.com
For all other information email me at Lisa@BusConversions.com
or call me at the office at (714) 903 1784.
We hope you enjoy your Magazine.
