Nice,

How are the fuel prices in Ga?

Have a safe trip.

Bill

Just paid $3.53.9 at Flying J half way through North Carolina.

I was calculating my milage again and it seems I'm only getting 2.4 mpg....?? Then when I got underway, I then noticed that my Speedo

stopped working...bummer! I hardly look at it because it's easier to see the mph on my gps.

Darn, I opened my bay door and I lost all the Florida warm air I was saving to bring home.... Angry

Thanks
Nick-

Hi David,

I'm ready to turn around and come back there...

Be sure to stop and say hi to my friends Peter and Cherry on lot 1 and Paul and Ellen on lot 2. Ellen runs the guard house on the weekends.

Also, Art Armstrong, Chris [gmbusguy's] dad.  You will find that 99% of the folks there are overly nice....

 I was on 94 next to the pool.

Have a great time!

Nick, I will do that... The couple we came down with
are in lot 9, and I understand that they know them,
The lot 1 folks. Just got back from a walk around, it's
real quiet here after dark...must all be in bed.

Got stoped in IL on the way down...58 in a 55 zone.
The trooper said the main reason he pulled us over
is I fit the profile for drug running...LOL...Huh
50+.. 2 kids, the wife and 2 dogs. Said it looked
suspicious when we did not have a towed trailer or
car.

Hi David,

That's a strange traffic stop...

We tried 8 different golf cart rental places around Ft. myers and everybody was Sold Out of rentals! Go Figure... Shocked

I forgot,  Peter and Cherry are now on their way back to Onterio for a week. [they drove their SUV and left the coach..]
They were leaving today...

Like the cops needed another excuse to relieve their boredom...

First it was bootleg charter operators, now drug runners...

Ok, put the dope and cash in the toad and make out it wasn't there when the trip started...

The toad, I mean!

happy coaching!

We have have never ever been involved in any kinda bootlegging! And neither has any of our family members.......! Well ok, maybe way back when I was a baby there mighta been a little somethin' somethin' goin' on, but I was too young to be involved! Now........ as for the other option hmmmm. Oppps what the h... am I think'n I enjoy being a free man too much to get involved with anything like that, even for ....... How much $ was that again? Hmmmm mill an a half? Hmmmm well maybe just 1 fake charter trip, and I'd be set! But I can guarantee one darn thing! I'd sure as heck have my story together as to where  I was pick'n up! LOL! And a dang sure way to tell I was do'n anything at all wrong would be I'd be driv'n like the angel I am! LOL!

You guys are missing the most important part of this story, State Police "Seize Tour Bus"
Some one is going to be able to buy this at a Seizure Auction, this is very good for us Busnuts.

dbenck, I live in central IL. and the state boys here are jerks, and would pull over their own mother if they could. They set the example of stopping someone, and then finding a reason for having pulled you over. rule one is to avoid the color RED as a choice for you vehicle. rule two is avoid driving older looking cars. Hopes this helps.
