July would be a stretch as we'll be in Canada.
August possible.  We're in PA.  Could see Bill & Roberta too!
Will keep watching the board.

Jerry H.

Nick and I have been kicking around a get together in July or August. I have room for a dozen or so coaches in the back yard. If it happens to get bigger than that, plan B will be implemented(whatever that may be). I'm in Harbeson. Delaware, 19951,  about 15 min. from the beach. Looking for some feedback, possible attendance? Responses will get the planning stage started.

Ok, 

Bruce has the space and a good location for a rally.

It's also easy to get to. And what is in mind is to get us bus guys together in the north east because, there's alot of us up here who don't have the time to travel long distances with our conversions still incomplete.

So throw your toilet and your sleeping bags in and here's your chance to make a trip in your bus. We are thinking of mabe a seminar or two, pig roast, and all the normal stuff.

Give us your comments!

I might be ready for August.  Possibly July, but that could be pushing it... Oh hell, bus is road ready anyway.  I just prefer it to be done (for the most part) before going to rallys.

    Don't worry about bus being "mostly done".  If you wait until bus is "mostly done", you will see ideas in other buses that will make you want to change yours anyway. Better to see other buses and steal ideas BEFORE you get yours "mostly done". The first trip in our MC-8, we had an air mattress & sleeping bags, cooler full of ice, and a coleman stove. Our closet was the overhead luggage rack. Start enjoying the bus now.  YMMV, Jack

Eric,

So far, It looks like we have about 7 confirmed attendees. and we havn't ironed out the festivities!!

We will get the plans out next week.

Nick-





I'm planning on it, but I can never be 100% sure until I pull in.  I have a lot going on this summer and sometimes life gets in the way unexpecedly.  I also had another thought.  It'll just be me and my dog most likely, so if anyone is busless between Southern NH and Delaware and wants the lift (and could share fuel expense), I wouldn't mind the company.  A friend and his wife say they want to go, but he always backs out.

What's the best way to get there from NH?  95 takes me through the big, scary city.... NYC, Cross Bronx Expressway, etc.

Ross,

I would try and come accross the Tappin Z Bridge, than down the Garden State Parkway, Than you can choose to go Either N.J.Turnpike to Delaware Memorial Bridge.

Or Stay on the Garden State Parkway to Cape May, Lewes Ferry. 1-1/4 hr ferry ride, than your 15 min to Bruces.
