Hey Jim, I saw pic's of your rally and it looks like you all had a great time.

People are putting together some pretty cool rides!

Bill: We did have a great time at the last Rally. First year we had 23 rigs, last year was 35 and fully expect to see 50+ in 06.

The conversions are only limited by the imagination and what will work. Come on down and join us in October.

Welcome Bunk. With 34 yars behind the wheel you have a leg up on most of the HDT-RV drivers you will encounter. Your insight into the big rigs will be welcome.
