Well I fired up Mrs. Jones today just to move her to a new resting place. She sounds so good. She wispered " lets go ". I backed her in and shut her down. I miss the road! All the Best, Michael & Christi See our other Blog;http://michaelhargisshow.blogspot.com/

Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones, what to do with Mrs. Jones? We moved out of Mrs. Jones! No, not because she is broke and not because we don't like her anymore. We needed more room. Our son Jared is 13 years old and growing. When we converted the bus we designed the floor plan for two. Jared was going to live with his father in Ca. and finish school. Christi and I hit the road touring the west. now a short time after Jared came back with us and we found ourselves living in a Bus built for two! So we tried a house for 6 months but hated it. We weighed all our options. The Bus had to be remolded before we could use it for the three of us, so we bought a 5th wheel (RV) and moved into it. It is a 33 ft. with three slides. Wow, we have a lot of room now and we love the lay out. Jared has about four years of school left before he goes off to collage and we will live in the 5th wheel until he goes off to concur the world. So here we are "Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones, what to do with Mrs. Jones?" Now we are back to looking at all our options again. We, Christi and I, talk about remodeling her with slides, new bedroom, up scale counter tops, you know, all the dreams we all have and think a bus should be. Then we think we should look for a factory built bus and avoid all the work, but that would mean selling Mrs. Jones! And for what, 18 - 20 grand in today's market? Any Bus Nut need a Bus? We really don't know what to do, but we do have time. "I can't find my watch! Honey, What time is it?" All the Best, Michael & Christi See our other Blog;http://michaelhargisshow.blogspot.com/

Its hard to believe its been a year since we saw Papa Bus. Now when I say Papa Bus I mean Papa and Donna Morgan. We got to spend some quality time with them and Bob, "Bob Of The North" and his wife Marilyn in Quartzsite, AZ last year at the "Q" Bus Rally. Sometimes when you 1st meet someone, you just know you will be friends for life and thats how we felt then and even more so now. About a month ago Christi got a call from Papa Bus that they were heading south from their home in Canada for their yearly vacation to the states. Christi told them that they must be our guests here in St. George, Utah. Papa called me from Az for directions and said they would be here on Thursday. A week ago, Thursday morning, I got a call from a Mark Morgan stating that they were in Lost Wages and they lost the directions to our resort. At this point I had no idea who Mark was and gave him directions like any other guest looking to stay at our resort. Then he said something about the bus running great or making good time in the bus and I realized it was "PAPA BUS". I got off the phone and told Christi they would be here in 3 or so hours. I have to admit I was excited! you know, to see the Bus. That afternoon the roar of a Detroit Diesel came in the drive. Christi said " Papa Bus is here!" I ran out to greet them like a little kid going to the candy store. It was so good to see them. I think Papa was a little taken back when I gave him a Big Hug. Then Donna got one. We had a great visit. We invited them over our house for dinner, we ate in town twice, had coffee and talked every chance we got. I wish Donna was not so hard on our car door handles. She tore one right off the door, handed it to me and said " This handle is Defective!". So I told her from now on I would open the car doors for her as if she were the Queen herself. Papa Bus only stayed for 3 days, Way to short if you ask me! They stopped for coffee and goodbyes on their way north. We talked about next years visit and of putting together a "After Q Rally" here in St. George. Sad to see them go. Its hard to believe its been a year since we saw Papa Bus.
