'Fraid to tell you but your statement is half wrong! [-X

Two years ago they "allowed" west coast phatchicks to camp there BUT with the understanding that this was SV2s area and to allow room for us. They then took over even though we got there at a decent hour with daylight still. However, nobody was happy with that issue and some asked if we wanted them to get the boot, but I agreed to just let them stay... that time and that time ONLY!!! :-x

Last year Ronnie and Co. made sure that the area was reserved for us and by the time it was all said and done, the west coast phatchicks were relegated to the back forty! :twisted:




That said, I think I could swing it an extra day or so. Will get in touch with VW Howard about the logistics and such. :cool:

With just a few weeks away we need to fine tune the details,
I think we may need to put "BBB" in the subject heading for anyone not familiar with Pyros B-day event!!!

Most importantly when are we heading up!!?
Where to meet?
BBB (pyros B-day) 2016 Roll Call!!
Time to get your bus ready for the long drive!
Anyone need any help or advice to get your bus ready to go?

Pretty sure Randar will be making it this year!! =D>

The Dennis family is looking to make the trip, presuming I can finish up the shift rod installation and a couple of other minor tune up issues that are necessary before making the long drive. The only problem is I don't think I can leave until Thursday because of work.

What other work needs to be done to your bus?

Do you have a CB?

Like we did many moons ago.
Up through Hemet to the 10 then 62 to Parker and up to Havasu.

I had some issues with my front brakes a few weeks ago. When I jacked it up, I found the front driver side tire would barely spin and the front passenger side had no resistance at all. I was able to fix it with a quick adjustment of the shoes, but I have a nagging feeling that I should open the drum up and look at everything. I'm off Friday, Saturday Sunday so hopefully I can make time to get it all done this weekend.

Yes, let us know if you want some help. That's what the club is for, right??

Scott McWilliams is looking for a good 1600 longblock to get his bus back on the road, hopefully for BBB. Plus it's his daily driver.
Anyone got something they're willing to part with?
