I took the trailer over last night & was able to visit a little before I had to run off for that dirtiest of 4 letter words - WORK.

The weather is GREAT & the earlier clouds cast with an unsubstantiated accusation have cleared & a good time is being had by all. Grin  Cool  Grin  Cool  Grin



Anytime 2 or more busnuts are together, a good time will be found.

Friends, I came down with a horrific case of Gout last evening and I hadn't even been misbehaving!  It's all I can do to walk. Fortunately I have some pills from the Doc that will take care of it by Monday with a little help from Advil.

Enjoy...Jackie and I regret that we'll miss the fun.

Sad, sad news from The Cove.

The 2008 Non-Rally is officially over.  Cry

In spite of my efforts, a GREAT time was had by ALL in attendance! (& even a few who didn't make it.  Shocked)


The weather was as good as it gets & the company was even better!
Met some new friends & added faces to names (mostly good,  Wink )
Those LP fire pits were great.
The musical entertainment was absolutely perfect thanks to JR & Gary.
The BBQ was also perfect, THANK YOU ED & ANN   Kiss(for Ann, sorry Ed, you'll have to settle for a handshake)  Grin  Cool
Thanks to my Mom for helping so much with the meals & keeping them close to the schedule.
Thanks Jon for the grill & making those awesome hamburgers!

But the best thanks goes to all who attended & made everything worth while.
I really didn't have to do much since everyone was so great about helping.




Stay tuned for details of the 2009 Non-Rally at The Cove (Oct 4th thru the 10th, 2009) We'll be sharing the facilities with the Airstreamers.

Jack, did you get your 'issue' resolved?

Missed you & Dianne at lunch, the BBQ & baked spaghetti were just as good the second time. . . . You missed out!

Enjoyed y'alls company too!

ME TOO!  Had a great time...once that %%$^&* exploded tire thingy was resolved.   Sad
I have now proven that my narrow a$$ can change an inner dual without killing something.  Grin 
Now's a good time to replace 6 tires....where to start?!   Shocked
No problems at all on the return trip!   I drove a little slower...now I'm scared of the tires. 
Anyone need some 315/80R-22.5 takeoffs?   Got five that look really good! 
Thanks to Jack and Jim for their assistance in getting my replaced tire up to pressure.  My spare had 86 lbs of air...I had an air line...it just wouldn't supply air...bummer.  MCI has a lot of check valves in the air system!  Huh   Oh well.  That'll be an easy fix.  When the spare goes back into the compartment, it'll have the valve stem forward so that it is easily serviceable. 
Really enjoyed the Non-Rally!  The weather was perfect!  Plenty of good feed!  Kyle's Mom kept him under control!   Grin Wink
LOTS of good conversation!   Really nice bunch of busnuts!  Smiley
Thanks to Gary L for organizing the 'setting of the awnings' and supplying heat Saturday night!  It did get a little cool outside in the evenings...sitting under an awning with a fireplace was nice.
Now I've got all this 'plumbers crack' that I had to bring back.  Gene wasn't able to make the trip sooooo we got all these plumbing things....actually, Gene says he's fixed the leaks.   
We're planning for Arcadia....and new tires.   
I semi-winterized the bus after Terri got it cleaned up.  Seems to take her a long time to wash one lousy bus.   Whatever, as long as it gets done!  Roll Eyes
T enjoyed herself too...I can tell.  I got out my big picture of an MCi "E" model that I carry around here...like a Christmas wish-book.   Usually that picture gets maybe a cross look...not today...she says 'lemmie see that'...Cool!  We're moving in the right direction.  Not very fast, but...she likes the stairwell and dash!   Who knows, I may skip the "D" model!   WinkRoll Eyes   
Now I'm just gonna wait for "O" to get me some health insurance!  Retirement is going to be sooo great! 
Kyle, put me down for next year! 

Cheers, JR and Terri

Thanks all for making this a pleasureable gathering it takes some effort for me to actually speak instead of type you-all Cheesy,  It was great to see some familiar faces and meet some new ones and familys somebody brought the "meanest women in the south".  Plenty of interesting buses.  Extremely sharp eagle, some MCi's, one with a series 50, but mostly GMC's(however no scenicruisers Cheesy), there was a silversides with a DDEC 6 92 in it(i think 92)

 I believe i ate more than i brought Shocked but there seemed to be plenty.  Big thanks to the bringer of the sliced tomatoes,  I had a nice big delicously messy mater burger Smiley  

Would like to especially thank the Brandts for "Bringin' it on!"

Paula & I also want to thank everyone involved in this rally.  I won't mention names, because I do not want to forget anyone. So, I will just say "Great Food, Great Weather, Great Friends, and a GREAT TIME"!  Jack

Gene did an amazing job with the install. Everything looked simple - untill you started looking at all the small details - WOW, the attention to detail is AMAZING! Gene is a very talented guy with great ideas! Was really great to meet them!
