This looks like it is shaping up to be a really great rally. This is the first time that all the drivers names are listed first. (DO YA THINK THAT WILL GET THE TALKIN?)

Looking forward to meeting all those new drivers.

OK Dave,,, you need to clarify your post.....are you referring to the fact that Tony listed all the LADIES names first or the fact that he listed all the registered attendees ??? Once I know to which you are referring I MIGHT give a reply! hahaha

We are off to the Buffalo Bill State Park for an overnight. Two weeks ago when we went, we were the only ones there. It is only 20 minutes from the house, but it is just peace, quiet and R&R!

You all have a good weekend.

First of all Pam and Tony, it looks like you guys have gone to a tremendous amount of effort to make sure this is a fantastic rally! Thanks!!!!

I am pretty sure the Jaggards will be there as well. We have tentative plans to meet them in Wendover for Bonneville Speed Week (starts Aug. 13) and then slowly work our way up I-15 and take a scenic cross-over into Wyoming.

If anyone wants to join us, let me know and I can give you the logistics. We will be dry camping at the "bend in the road".

Jim, we will keep the offer in mind.

Our bus is once again out of commission. :oops: So the hunt is on again for a series 60 if anyone knows of one that is for sale. We will be traveling for the summer in one of Daniel's spare buses. Nice to have good friends with 3 running buses. We are at Daniel's now moving out of our bus and into his spare. He is such a good friend!!

Will check back and see what the timing is when the rally date gets closer. We are all heading out tomorrow morning for Bend, OR and then Tuesday down to Salem. Bus 'N USA in Rickreal, then Melroys Eagle Rally.

By the way, this bus we will be traveling in is For Sale and a pretty nice bus converted by John Edwards.

Hi Glynda and George. I am so sorry to hear about the engine. I can empathize with you :( Keep us posted on how the project is going.

If the bus you are traveling in is an Eagle, be sure to list it here (after you are close to being done with it :D ).

The Bonneville thing is nothing formal. Folks can just show up. We will be there at least half the week. I think the week long pass to be a spectator is $20.

As most of you know, Bonneville is is maybe 5 miles east of Wendover (UT/NV). They have great buffets and gambling for those inclined. It gets pretty warm during the day, but it cools off in the evening.

Thanks for all the positive feedback and encouragement.... We are still working on plans to fine tune and make it a rally to remember. Tony is loosing sleep thinking of ideas ...his mind never stops working!!

Clifford...just FYI...Don Smith is NOT coming.

We have met Wilbur and Laura and we think they are great people, we would welcome them even if they lived in a VW LUV BUS! :D

Happy Father's Day to one and all!!
