I'm interested in a full-day visit. I should be available between 6/1-6/30 or 7/8-8/20. I know early July and late August will be bad for me.

I'm in - back to trying to get Harvee to not have 420+ CHTs as the primary focus.

Any time is good, and your blockout of mid September works for me as my family will be over from Merrye Olde at that time. Maybe tie it in somewhere close to your desert interlude?

Hey Colin - I can be fairly flexible - looking at wheel bearings / working on doors & windows and maybe brakes. Let's chat on line. Difference will be location - bus is located at our place in Taos now (we sold our place in Los All Your Moose),

Colin, We would love a visit again this year. Not sure what the summer looks like for us yet but put us on list! You need to meet piglet #2

I am definitely in, let me know if you want to link up prior or post desert walkabout. I am going to make my first "long" trip this year from Vegas to St. Louis, so the middle part of June, me and little man will be on the road. I would really like to do the heavy-duty refresh on the front doors and sliding door, and possibly the Wiper Refresh.

Missed last year’a 10th Anniversary Spring visit due to low funds. Since you will be in upstate NY mid-September I’m assuming Vermont would be somewhere in that window?

Please pencil me in. I know we have a busy summer schedule so I’ll hope it all lines up. Not sure what to put on the list yet but possibly another windshield or Bus 3 work.

There are always things to do, right? I could find, for example, that we need to drill out your front suspension stampings to let water drain out before your beams rust away ...

Yes. You would be in the quadrant that may have an Itinerant Air-Cooled guest worker.
Would that be OK?

That would be more than ok. I was hoping we would get a chance to meet.

Yes add me to the list. I may need more scrap parts from Chloe again.

East Texas interested. :). Need a couple of days at a minimum as soon as possible but happy to take whatever is possible. (Fingers crossed for a counterclockwise year).
