I've been looking through everyone's pictures that have been posted on FB and I haven't seen any with you guys in them. Only the ones you all posted. Were you guys really there? :lol:

I’m guessing 2 things... #1, it’s a conspiracy against us since nearly all the overview drone videos stop just short of our spot, or #2, they are simply jealous of our real estate spread thanks to you know who! :-P

If you look close you will see my bus just to the right of the bike ramp near the end of the video

In true Top Gear fashion, we left David waiting for the tow truck at Glamis Beach and went home. 8-[

Other pix...

This panel had an amazing paint job. What looked like intake vents just in front of the rear wheelwell, was actually painted on! So was the super shiny and real looking deluxe trim! :shock:

And dense fog on the Poston road! :-x

Maybe this has already been discussed in private conversations or FB postings, but what happened? Did the bus get towed somewhere? Is everyone OK? Is the bus fixable or being fixed?

Was a fantastic weekend.
Uneventful drive to Havasu.
The southern boys rolled back on the southern route - Ivan, Joe, Rob and David. From my understanding, David had some issues requiring a tow home.
Greg, William and myself rolled back on the northern route (hwy 62) which was uneventful except for William's bus and a loose spark plug which was remedied in a few minutes.

David's Bus decided to keep spitting out a spark plug just outside of Glamis. Ivan tried some creative roadside repair but to no avail. He limped into Glamis and called the trusty AAA. My son (who tried moonshine for the first time, thank you William) commented that through it all David still had a smile on his face!

All in all a great weekend with friends and buses, can't wait till next year!

Yup, twas me. My plug didn't want to stay in, so I said F'k it and drove 50MPH the 28 or so miles to Glamis, Sent the fellas on their way and finished off the rest of my beer while I waited for the tow truck. Got home just before midnight. STILL HAD A BLAST!!!!
