This one is definitely not to be missed!

The Delaware Rally is a great time for all.  I attended the Delaware Rally for the first time last year.  I met a bunch of good folks, and made a lot of new friends.   These people are crazy about their conversions and really know about what they are doing.  Their coaches there ran the gamut from just barely started conversions like my older GMC 4905A with little more then the seats removed to slick ultra modern late model coaches and fully complete conversions of MCI’s, Eagles, and GMC’s, etc. 

The food was really excellent.  I know I ate my fill (and then some) at every meal and it just kept on coming as long as I had any hunger for more. 

Some of us spent the whole weekend just talking about buses, or getting greasy working on buses (our own, or others).  In any case I think we all learned a whole lot about buses then we knew before we got there.  I know I did. 

The rally location is a really beautiful private setting.  There are a lot of other forms of entertainment available in the area as well.  I didn’t go myself, but I remember our hosts made the arrangements and a bunch of other people went fishing in the ocean.  There's lots of stuff to do (shopping, theaters, restaurants, etc.) within a short drive of the rally location. 

See ya'll there!
