Hey Colin, been a few years, but I'm ready to get back into this. Fridays are best, but I can make whatever work. I'm still in Kittery, ME. Need to dial in some projects. Not much has changed since last time.

A Sunday sometime this Summer.
We have an opening 11,867,244 seconds from now, or I could have an available opening 11,953,644 seconds from now as well. Oops, that is 11,867,124 or 11,953,524 seconds from now, now.

Hey Colin, it's the T-Shirt guy from Mountain Home, AR... I'm for sure in for a full day and have a couple of club members that are good for at least another day and a half. Looking to get it done asap!
Thanks!

Hello zabo, when I go through Atlanta, we can hook up. If I do Maupin this year, you and I will see the schedule fill up backwards from June 15th in Oregon through the midwest to the northeast and down the eastern seaboard. If there are a lot of you, I will have to take off from Pensacola in mid-April so help me.

I'd like to schedule a full day visit in Grayslake, IL. The only bad time for me is between 6/29-7/7. Anything else should work.
Hello locoqueso,
I just filled out your address with correct zipcode (!) by memory . . . Patron Founding Member that you are.

(p.s. look at your IAC Visit Log at least an hour before I get there, and you will beat last year's record :bom: )

Chris, you will see that I currently have you down for after the Missouri call at the latter end of the schedule.
This "sucks" as people will tell you. We may be able to get you in before I head up the east coast, but I cannot say at this time. We also might get your bus straightened out via PM, but you and company will want a visit whenever it happens, because we are not just about immediate repairs but a glorious mechanic-free informed future forever.

Hey Colin, sounds good. I think I was pretty thorough in regards to what is going on with my bus in my PM to you. If you have some suggestions please send them my way! And yes! Whenever it works out for you to come, I'm in!
Thanks!

Um, please clarify if the part that "sucks" is the Missouri call or the latter end of the schedule. A bruised ego hangs in the balance...

Let's parse the sentence the only way it can be parsed.

"I currently (scheduled you) after the Missouri call.
This (scheduling decision) 'sucks' as people will tell you."

Now let's mangle the sentence to somehow diss Missouri . . .

"you will see that I currently have you down for after the sucky Missouri call at the latter end of the schedule. Man, that state really sucks as people will tell you, even their football team fled to Los Angeles of all places, Missouri must be pretty bad if people would actually choose Los Angeles traffic and deadly earthquakes and fires and sky-high real estate prices, and the worst drought in a hundred years . . . over Missouri. Heck, Saint Louis couldn't even pull off a good race riot like Watts did in 1965."

Howzzat? :blackeye:

Boy, one snarky grammar comment... :geek:

But I am curious - why does it "suck" to be near the end of the schedule?

If clhudson and I can't get a passably running bus over the internet, maybe we can do a quick little trip out to Arkansas and Kentucky in the spring? Otherwise, late summer tooling down the tree-lined avenue in the Triumph um, after we get the bus tiptop of course. PM me your list!
