My idea is to maybe have seminars at the different rally's to show basic maintenance as well as suggestions on modifications to the buses. While still pictures are great (and appreciate all the work that has gone into the reference section), has anybody thought about..perhaps..making recordings of the various maintenance areas and, either posting them online (youtube) or making them available to members???? Nothing fancy but just things like changing the different filters, bearing/brake maintenance, water tank conditioning, etc, etc.
Just a thought. The "older" and much wiser members are getting up there in age and don't want to lose this institutional knowledge to become lost. We intend to keep these birds up and running into the 22nd Century...
Give me your ideas..am I barking up the wrong tree or is this an idea that we might think about exploring.
Sorry for being so long winded.

Dennie,

That is an excellent idea and we already have a place for those threads and posts in this sub-forum, so if anybody has any suggestions of previous posts or threads please post the url link to them here and I'll copy or move them over, I can't do it with the just the subject title, please help me do some of the leg work.

Dennie, as far as your being long winded.......................you had better take yourself out of first gear if you think that was long winded, we have some members here that would just be starting to get warmed up with that many words, sort of like comparing your CAT 3208 powered 'Bird to a Wide Body powered with an S60 climbing up a mountain grade
