Kyle,

 just a few observations.......

 1.   Possession is 9/10 the law?    By the looks Patrick has possession of the orphan.
 2.   Fly up? well shut my mouth get that thing running and let Patrick drive up (geter done)
 3.   As any well run Orphanage will tell you when your orphan has a good home it is emotionally traumatic
       to be moving the orphan from the south to the north.

  Have a safe trip

   Skip

You forgot something important & that is the wife's opinion. You see, before I entrusted Cliff with temporary guardianship of this orphan, I made sure his wife didn't want it.  Grin

See, you gots to do your homework!  Cool





BTW, If Cliff decides he has to have it, I can't think of anyone more worthy.  Grin

 I didn't know Patrick was married?  (I'm just being a brat)

  Well at least Patrick will have a wonderful fort until its' departure.


  As far as Cliff's wife I no nothing about her but learned along time ago not to
 wind up the better half I like Cliff to much to do that to him.

Hey Tom,
It is 586.
Jack is going & Ash is too  Grin

So I'll be in great company, maybe, between the 2 of them, I'll learn how to drive!  Shocked
Ash said he wanted to see how this one drives compared to his.

About Ca, as long as you're there, you may as well try to enjoy it. Has Chad been chauffeuring you around on this trip with his Scenicruiser?

That's a bit much price wise for my budget  Sad

The pictures of it on a trailer don't instill much confidence in how well it runs  Shocked
Can't tell much from the pictures either, but maybe that's a good thing  Grin

Where are all those guys that seem to think scenicruiser parts are so valuable? Seems to me they would be lined up to buy it & make millions parting it out!   Shocked  Grin  Roll Eyes

Kyle,

Asking price means nothing. I have made offers that some might find offensive, and to my suprise, they were accepted without the seller batting an eye.  Sometimes folks just want to get rid of it. Anyways, I wasn't serious though, just wanted to stir the pot. Grin

Have fun,

Hold on! You, Jack, and Ash.......I think there are laws against such like minds running together in one pack. Thats like a bus "gang". You dudes will have a blast. Tell Ash hello. Have not seen Chad. Weather is great here. 83 or so yesterday, I think. I actually got some sun burn on the back of my neck while on the roof doing inspections.Yeah, like my neck isn't red all the time! Beats the hell out of 10 above at home. Now I see why people live here! I assume one of you will do pictures, and video of the trip. Thanks for the serial info. I just wrote down #470 also. Take care.

Kyle,
You guys will be leaving in about 25 hours, the entire MAK board will truly be interested in your trip to get your new Cruiser.  I surely wish I could of gone, everyone stay safe, keep it at (55 MPH) for safety and fuel conservation and not stress the ole girl out on her voyage to her new home to be with her other siblings. 

Again, stay to the right, stay at 55 and stay alive.  You will be traveling with a great group of friends and busnut family. We all look forward to any and every update possible from the time you leave tomorrow at noon.

This little trip pales in comparison to Chad picking you up at LAX in his Scenicruiser to give you the scenic tour of the area on the way to meet up with Phil.  Cool

Kyle,
. . . . keep it at (55 MPH) for safety . . . .
Gary

 Huh  Huh  Huh

I belive driving with the flow of traffic is the safest practice.
But 55 mph in a 70 mph zone where most are running 80?
Are you NUTS? If we drive 25 mph slower than the rest of the traffic, we'll surely be in an accident!  Shocked

Come on, Gary, have a little faith. This is a mighty Scenicruiser we're talking about!  Grin
Rest assured, we will be safe & drive conservatively to take it easy on her, but I'm not interested in creating a hazzard by driving too slowly! Too many people will do even more stupid things to get around you & then there are the idiots with road rage. . . .
Besides, I was planning on 60 - 65 as that is where the best fuel economy is (or, so I'v been told by other scenic owners).

Lou assures me this bus loves to run with the big dogs & even take it's turn in front. Lou has logged over a million miles on his '72 Pete, so I'm guessing his opinion is good.  Grin

Besides, when they had the twin 4-71's in them, if you defeated the hi-gear govenor, the bus would run over 100 mph!

But, I ain't interested in seeing if she wants to do that anymore Shocked

Gary, I know you are bummed out about not going on this trip & want to be sure we'll return safely.

We will. I have no intentions of getting in a hurry. We are gonna let the bus set the pace. If something needs attention, we will stop & fix it. No prayer maintainence for me.  Grin

You will get your chance to see it soon  Grin
