OK Folks, As I feel partially responsible for creating this class 7 converted Volvo's interest back in March/April of 1999, I think that a national rally would be the best event we could have to answer questions, see what everyone has done and create a few more of the best towing rigs (IMHO).
I have been in contact with Kenny Doonan in Wichita, KS and we are now in the planning mode.
Kenny has stated that he would be able to put on a few seminars and has new equipment that he could demonstrate that do a complete safety analysis of the truck (s). There could be tours of aircraft manufacturing plants, science building in Wichita and numerous other tours.
I will also try to have a representative from corporate Volvo in Greensboro, NC put his two cents in also.
What we need to do is come out with a month/day/yr to have this and all the time considering the weather in Kansas.
We are leaning towards September of 04 as a possible month as most workampers are headed for warmer climes and all the holidays are over for a couple of months.
What we need to have to make this happen is a count of potential attendees, dates when they could make it, and suggestions to incorporate.
I am willing to act as wagonmaster for this event and will come up with costs/campground/events.
Please reply to me at JGehlen538@aol.com
