 Some of you may know about the photographer at the event for those who don't he has pictures at his website.  www.gordonradfordphotography.com  At the bottom left of his home page click on Abstracts & Details and Bus Portraits.

 After looking at his pictures of Puerto Jimenez Costa Rica I may be packing and moving.

 No connection with the photographer just thought some might not know they are there..

 Pretty neat pictures not just of buses..... I like his work

Stayed at the Blue Swallow Motel in Tucumcari, NM in 2011.  Nice folks that run it are transplants from Michigan, and are trying to keep it going.  Not much room for bus parking, but we were in the Jeep Liberty  Embarrassed  They have some murals of the "CARS" movie on the walls of the carport area.  There is a bus mural on the end unit that faces the road(old rt 66).  It is like a step back in time, but very neat and clean!  I would stay there again.

Thanks to all who passed along or posted.

 
Here is a link to a pro photographer's site that was in Blytheville: http://www.gordonradfordphotography.com/be sure to check out "bus portraits" and "abstracts and details" cool stuff all for sale. My wife surprised me for my Birthday with one of his super-cool canvas type photo large wall hangings of my bus next to the Blytheville depot (a couple of versions can be seen on his site). Really great work!  Please feel free to contact Gordon through his website to make purchases.
