Coach, always fascinating to hear about these more rare engines. After parts hunting on old gasser buses for nearly the past 30 years, I took a decidedly different route in choosing something easier to get parts for this time. Hunting parts from home is one thing...

There are actually a lot of bus/skoolie owners here in Oregon. It seems most of them are independent, un-associated bus owners. Just guys that want a bus to play with, mostly younger mechanics.

It would be interesting to have a Willamette valley meet up for anyone that wanted to come. So few of you list your locations here that I was only aware of a few other Oregonians on this forum. Anybody interested?

Yes! We should start a willamette valley bus club! It would be fun to get a bunch together every so often. We are just a young family who randomly bought a shorty almost a year ago. We love it! We would love to meet up with like-minded and check out everyone's different takes on buses.
We are in Silverton if that wasn't apparent by my previous comment.

I've got some friends up that way I'd really like to visit some time.

CB, that would be pretty cool. Of course that kind of obligates us Oregonians to drop in on a FL gathering sometime. Then again we wilt easily in humidity.

Maffei, yes that was a pretty good indication of where you are. Didn't know you guys were that close. I'm on the other side of the valley just a little before the Van Duzer corridor.

jester, I haven't had that much salmon since I was in AK many moons ago. Move over. It may be necessary to convert my 4' bus garage into a smoke house.

Ah great..... I needed to hear that lol.... I don't really want to haul it cross country. Seattle would be my farthest destination north, south would be northern California. I was told by the seller that it doesn't get the best gas mileage or isn't actually the fastest, but that if I was alright cruising at 55mph, that I would be fine. Aside from maybe a good tune up, I'm hoping that's all it's gonna need to get me from point A to B. I wouldn't really move it at all if I could find a decent chunk of property to park it on and start building from that point on. The real estate market is proving it isn't very merciful to break into, as far as decent fixer-uppers go.

I'd be interested in getting together as well. Things at work may get switched around abit for me here in the week's to come but I should be able to squeeze in a visit on a Saturday or Sunday. Definitely wouldn't mind heading up to Wilamina either to check out what you got going on your bus and to maybe share different idea's. The family could use a day trip out of the valley....

That sounds pretty cool. It's about time for a beach trip anyway isn't it?
