don and I will be there in a little while. We made it as far as the Flying J at the state line last night. Of course, we had a nice stop and a nice dinner at a casino an hour or so back from that. We're going to have some breakfast and then head on out. Someone save us a spot!

Did not count this morning yet, but we must be close to 40 Eagles now.

An Eagle showed up yesterday that just blows your socks off.  The paint job is unbelievable, it has a huge Cummins (625 HP) and I am told the interior is as good as the best commercial "bus conversions" (did not get a chance to go inside).

I am told the folks are in the bus conversion business.  If so, it is a great show piece.

A must see if you are in the area.

Don't know if Hal St. Clair will be there, but he extended his 05 by 5 feet, widened it to 102, raised it a foot I believe and the last I heard the DD was in the 650 hp range. Really a beauty to behold, both inside and outside.

 Sounds like "Drawing and Quartering".  Grin 
 Is that feasible?? Man that would be allot of work!

Any chance you can a picture or two and post them?! It sounds unique.

40 or more Eagles in one spot?  No wonder i did not sleep well last nite! The wind has been coming from the north the last few days and it must be carrying the sound of all those birds rusting, all the way down here to Yuma. Smiley     Just funning ya guys, i have an Eagle next door to me and another one across the street so i am used to the sound...... Grin

Hal is here. 

There are some very modified units here.  Catskinner is here with the Eagle that has the drive and bogey axles reversed (like an 01).  There is a stretched 10 (45 feet).  Lots of engine conversions.  Kind of Mecca for folks who like Eagles.

Oh, almost forgot to list Bob Belter with his bus that has been modified by a large tree Grin   (http://www.busconversions.com/bbs/index.php?topic=6874.0)

I just got home last night and I have about 200 pictures. I'll post a few here shortly and will have the rest available on my website. It was a fantastic time with lots of great buses and great folks as well!
