Lol REDD, looks like you got t-shirts covered?

Sorry, been off-grid for a few days, and now back working for abit. Please continue the discussion as I would like to see a bit more interest before we start making decisions.

Hey Dred, maybe you could set up one of those poll thingys on this thread to better gauge interest? Is that possible? (Bansil, CrazyCal?)

REDD - LOVE that! I would totally want those as tshirts...

Another idea that we could attempt to schedule annually is two seperate locations a left coast right coast thing? I am from texas but live in n.c. And can only move at 49 mph so a long trip is out of question for me but in my area I have a field available (through a friend that are more naturalist,hippy,good people) that can handle 20-30 spread out comfortably . No hook ups but water fill is available and at the end a form of a dump station could be (if I prepped) existing 30 dog kennel in operation on septic with available clean out to dump into. Or there is a state park we put my bus at every year for a week or so with water available a dump station, full bathroom's and on the water $17 a night. There are several other state rustic sites that are only 5$ a night with nothing but a site with lantern hook,fire ring and outhouse.
The company I used to work for I had 3-weeks vaca a year closed the doors at Christmas and now I have none until 2-years in with my new job. These sites I am offering for the right coast allow me to park and work during the day.
Not trying to sound selfish and I think this is a great idea and would love to meet other skoolie. Maybe we can schedule 2 seperate meet up 's at the same time frame that way the skoolie s that can't make it to Kansas,Arkansas or wherever on that side of town can agree to a spot on this side of town and we can share stories and pic's after

Elkhart, IN has lots of salvage places to prowl around in and find things to finish your build. There is also the RV museum.There are couple of bus friendly campgrounds as well as the Elkhart county fairgrounds.

I can't yet say for sure if we'd be able to make it to this event, but if it were in Elkhart it'd be much more likely! I'll put a vote in for RV salvage yard pickin', too.

Hell, let's make it a proper swap meet! Anyone have a 6+1 Spicer or (even better) a RoadRanger sitting in their backyard?

...still at it.


Any body got ideas? I'm not in the T-shirt business but I know from having them made, more colours equals more pesos...
