I don't know if I'll get my re-gearing done in time. 45 m.p.h. is SLOOOOOOW on I 10 from Houston.... 65 m.p.h. is much safer. Working on a bunch of things to get HF road ready.

well- if you can't get er done in time come join Roxy and I in tent/car city!
This event even coincides with my bday.
I've never been to AZ. Never even been close. Spent a week in Colorado a couple years ago but that's the furthest west I've been. I do LOVE the desert, though.
Gonna really try to go. May even try to snag my folks' RV for a week or two. 1900 miles each way is what I'm facing. Hopefully someone out there can smoke me out?!

Wife says no room service is roughing it..... I enjoy tent camping, heck, anything that is away from 122mm incoming is easy for me. She, however, has a different view-point..........

I'm planning to go to this!! Sounds like a blast (glad it's getting finalized)
I'm not sure if I'll be done with my VanHool or if it will be sold - (I'm about to list it for sale - PM if interested) but if I sell I WILL have another bus. I think I'm a bus girl for life

I mean no offense, but why spend all that time and money just to sell it?
Unless of course you're making money by selling it. Goin into the bus biz?
