Default At the HDT Rally in Hutchinson KS

Bob86ZZ4 is a few doors down in the campgrounds, we could use a few more truck conversions,

great time, super people, so much creative knowledge here, what a great experience if you have an interest in this type of stuff!!

Classes on Internet on the road, tire safety, RV Truck insurance, solar installations, electrical systems. Everything that we discuss all the time, it is really worth putting on your schedule for next year.

Default Thanks to Blizz

Blizz:

Thanks for the report from the rally! My conversion just wasn't "done enough" to bring it this year, but I'll be attending the next one, wherever it is. I appreciate the time you took to let us all know you are having a great time.

Blizz and I are the only T/C's here. The rest are HDT's pulling 5th wheel camper trailers. It is a good time. Everybody is very friendly and lots of chats going on all the time. This is my second one. So I know what's going to happen on the way home. It's just like the wedding reception. The next day you're kicking yourself because you didn't get around to talk to everybody. I'll try to get some pictures up. Blizz has a pretty fancy looking camera so I suspect he's got lots better ones than me though.
