Default Good Bye good bird

After several thousand miles and as many smiles, Roberta and I sold our 90 SP yesterday. The coach was a rescue and required many replacement parts and updates. Along the way a few upgrades were made as well. Some of the improvements we wanted and some were forced upon us by WOG friends. The bus never failed to get us where we were headed and brought us home safely as well. I didn't sleep well at all last night thinking of all the places and good times we had in this Indian Rose Metallic Wanderlodge. Our trip to Alaska last year proved that older Blue Birds can still hang with the modern ones. 12000 plus miles running with 60 series Detroits, up and down the hills proved the old girl could get us to the stopping point in time for supper every night.

The new owners are WOG Members and will be along soon.

For a few days we will not be members of the 2 bird club.

I'm not sure congratulations is the right word for the sale of your coach. They are more than just a machine and it's easy to get attached to one. I'm sure you sent it to a good home though.

I'll bet "Top" had a replacement picked out before he let go of what he had. Don.

No not really. We've had the 92 for a few months now. It will be for sale if not already sold.
