I'd be down for an east coast get together, not sure I want to undertake a 3600 mile trip in an untried bus... I mean it ran 300 miles at one time with no problems but I still want to ease into a trip of that length. Florida is just over 1300 round trip (based on EastCoast's listed location of Eustis FL where I presume he is talking about having this), that would certainly be do-able for me if the cash, the price of diesel, and the timing work out.

Ok just to be clear, this is boondocking not a established campground where we need reservations?

There will be seminars on both weekends?

Any idea yet what topics on which weekends?

Just talked to wife & we're thinking of renting small travel trailer & making a long weekend.

Awesome Stu, look forward to meeting you folks.
Seminars....
There will be plenty on the RTR side, almost every day of the event, but I do not have a schedule yet. On our side of the desert (50 yards away) there will be no seminars, unless someone volunteers. I can volunteer to talk about ANY SUBJECT you want, but there are only a few topics I should be considered an authority on.

I would consider talking about the following topics*:
- solar (install, applications, solar vs. wind vs. water)
- water (pumps, plumbing, storage)
- adaptation (any interesting subject pertaining to living a mobile life)


*All the above topics would be presented from a Redneck(low- budget, low-skill, half-assed approach to solutions) perspective.

I would love it if we could have other presenters, and that would mean ANYONE that has something to share including but not limited to:

- mechanical knowledge - repairs, diagnostic, trouble-shoot, tips, etc.
- buying a bus - what to look for, what to avoid
- workshop on building, framing, plumbing, electrical
- any interesting, unique, or alternative way to overcoming an obstacle


So who can do what?

rather than presenters i think it would be fun to just have roundtables of sorts.. following a loose topic... esp if there are a lot of busses.. everyone can look and see first hand during a roundtable say on insulation.. or mechanics, engines, etc..

if I in fact get to make it out I'll bring my computer interface so we can repgrogram computers on busses if we need, run codes, etc..

more interactive than just a seminar.. but somewhat topic driven .. unlike the campfire talk which is usually abiout anything and everything

We can add a roundtable, but that sounds like a campfire, which is a given. Any topic can be discussed around a fire. I truly think the best thing we can do for all attendees is give everyone a sense of what is possible. Seeing something first-hand is better than any manual, or video, or textbook. If anyone one else has ideas please post up. If you have any experience you would like to share, post up or PM to discuss.

Getting excited
