Hey Don,

Really sorry that you won't be able to make the big Rally.

Who do you believe should get your share of Ned's Springwater?

Hope things are going well and you can get back this way soon.

luvrbus,
I am with you, Have spent enough time with/on the 01, 05 and 10 models that I know where there might be a small area that has not rusted yet..
Glad the Foretravel is Fiberglass, the rust will have little effect I hope. Grin Grin
Had the MC7, it had rust but nothing like em giggles.
The fact is, I like the buses and the folks I have met along the way, including Fats Domino and Charlie Danials, they had questions about the 12V-71 etc.
Point is, in my case, when you have the health, not enough money, now money is a lesser concern, the health has gone. So I still think about the good ole days.

We are hoping to be there and meet more busnuts. We enjoyed Blytheville and we said we couldn't afford another long trip this year but we are going to give it a shot. I'm making some progress on getting some of the worst tires replaced, just found 2 12R x 22.5 generals for $200 each installed, they are going to the front and I'm moving the fronts back to the inside rears.

Hope we can make it!!

Bruce,
 I moved the older ones to the rear outside. I carry 2 run up blocks with us. If one goes then i just run the inside up on the run-up and can change the outside not so easy on the inside. Just my way.
