Sorry we didn't make it. I didn't get home from CT until 630 Friday and we had a photo shoot all day Saturday in Brooksville. We really wanted to attend

The unfinished raised one is ECCB's Amtran? That's a long bus- will make a roomy RV.

Looks like you all had a good meet-up. Back to polishing the chrome strips I took off for painting...

I don't think I made it in any of the pics. They took one before I got there and one this AM, I left last night for my hotel. Then headed out north to Ohio this morning.

I think we all get into enjoying the gathering so much we don't take lots of pics

It's kind of like why go to a cool event and stare at our phones

I'm a techie but I totally dig how much people don't stare at their phones at ECs parties!

That thing would look so mean with one of those chrome or diamond plate visors. Like what that one guy has on his sweet rig

Thanks!!

I'm not a big visor person but I am thinking about a chrome grill and maybe chrome mirrors.


I stopped north of charlotte tonight, decided not run it all the way to Ohio, I want to see if there's any colors in the mountains so I need to hit that' in the daytime .

Someone earlier asked about the dashboard screens.

The left one is an Asus win 10 tablet running silver leaf electronics VMSpc device and software, itcis engine monitor.

The one on the right is surface win 10, and it's running an EFIlive flashcan V2 and is monitor the Allison TCM transmission computer.

That was me, thank you.

Was that expensive to set-up? I mean the interface and the software, not the cost of the tablets.

Such a wonderful weekend!

Was great to see everyone this weekend.
We're tired, but had a great time.

Everyone is always so NICE at these get togethers!!!

Raul and Tram- It was REALLY nice to see you two!

We sent Sandi off, then spent the evening with John, Sarah, and the lovely CabinBus family! Jeremiah, Rachel, and Clover are AMAZING people.

Roger is one of the kindest, most gentle people on this planet... I hope we cross paths again sometime, man!

Chris- you're ALWAYS missed as soon as you're back on that highway!

Bob and Ms Bob (Michelle)- You guys win the distance award this year. I hope your bus adventures bring you back this way again! Looking forward to seeing what you do with that BB. I have the feeling its gona be NICE!

Sandi and Alice- You gals stay safe and have a GREAT trip! Thanks for the kind words, and thanks for getting PICS, cause without them it woulda never happened! No worries on the toe, I've got nine more to go! Wouldn't be the first broken toe, definitely not the last. That's a small price to pay for the glory of Birkenstock.
How far did yall make it tonight?

We made it to my moms, north of Gainesville. She needed a visit. Your text came thru but mine back to you won't send (sketchy cell service out here).
We'll get an early start in the morning and drive 8 hours. I sure don't like driving it in the dark when it's raining.
THANK YOU! For everything!
