We traveled to Michigan a couple of weeks ago to a bus rally hosted jointly by CCO (Converted Coach Owners) and GLCC (Great Lakes Converted Coaches). It was held in a firemans park and we had the place all to ourselves. It is very near Frankenmuth, MI where the worlds largest Christmas store is located. This is a very old rally and one of the members has wired the park so that everyone gets 20A service. (they used to do it with extensions cords) Thanks Marty.
We went a day early to visit the Christmas store and walk around Frankenmuth which is a very old Bavarian community. Was told later by a very upset mumsywumsy that we didn't stay long enough to see all she wanted, who knew, I thought she was ready to go back.
There is always a lot of activity at these rallys with repair manuals, diagrams, voltmeters, heads stuck in various access doors. The guy I got my cruise control plans from helped me sort out my stupid mistake.
It's nice to see how others have done things and get more ideas.
One of the members had a glider equipped with a camera, here is a picture captured from a video he took. It was very windy that day and he couldn't get much altitude.
There were 20 buses and 6 motorhomes (they used to have buses). This picture was taken Sunday AM and three of the Prevosts had already left. There were, I think, 6 Prevosts, 2 Eagles, 1 Fishbowl, 1 Buffalo, 4 MCIs, a couple GMs, and 1 school bus.
Four were from Canada
On Sat miltruckman stopped by, he lives real close, but had air tanks off of his bus and couldn't bring it.
Great Lakes Converted Coaches is a FMCA chapter consisting of members who own or want to own a converted coach (bus) in the Great Lakes Area. CCO is not a FMCA chapter and originally you had to have a diy bus, no store boughts. However, since membership is dwindling, you don't even have to have a bus, just have a love of things bus.
