Wow...the accident sounds bad...hope everyone was ok.
Looks like a good turnout with the freezing temps and all.
Don't recognize the orange westy or vannywagon...?
Everyone else's heaps are looking mighty fine.
Thanks Daniel & Leslie for keeping it alive and your fine new phat chick too.
Glad you all enjoyed yourselfs and the "Ozluxe Looker" junk prize.
Really miss everyone back home and wish we could have been there...maybe next year :roll:

When I drove by the only person NOT doing good was the cab driver. All parties on the bus and the driver seemed to be fine. I asked Glenn if they needed help, he said "No Sir we are good, do you think you can squeeze by?" So I checked the space and put'er in 4x4 low and drove part way in the bushes. LOL The cab didn't look so hot, the school bus looked good. I'm sure Ryan would know more since they were there until they closed the road.

Amy called Glenn and this is the report:
Glen - fine
School bus - fine
Crown Vic - totaled
Crown Vic driver - injured but will be ok.

I had an older school bus for a short time, and let me tell you, those bumpers are like 1/4" thick steel with reinforcements. Any smaller car doesn't stand a chance. I'd be pretty rattled if I was the bus driver in a wreck like that, though.

Yeah she was lucky she was in a Crown Vic and not something smaller. That huge hood took the brunt of it.

Yeah I talked to Glen, he was fine said the big yellow school bus suprised her. Said he saw the shock in her eyes when she hit. They brought the tractor down and pulled the buses bumper out so that he could finish taking the passengers to their destination.

We were there a good 30-45 mins while the hauled the injured off, investigated and cleaned up. Was tempted to just go back to camp and drink a beer but they kept saying it wouldn't be much longer. We followed the bus up to top of the hill.

K&K has turned into a joint effort for sure
BIG THANKS to Darla for taking the bull (or snow tube box... :P ) by the horns and collecting the green backs from everyone and getting the boat count for Glenn

Ryan for reading the sacred scroll of words written by profit Roy J :)

Dylan for being a serious box opener & name drawer :o :o


Roy that vannywagon is Mark & Wendy (they have been before) it has a Jetta engine in it

The Chrome Yella Westy is Karl & Jenny from Columbia

Super sorry we missed a beautiful weekend for camping, but this house deal had to take priority. :cry:

I did however make a little time to go help a buddy check out a bus down by springfield. It was a green 78 westy and was rough to say the least. Pics looked pretty dang good, but up close, you find the foam filled rockers and the hit in the rear it took at some point.. ALSO,, a snake slithered out of the engine hatch as we were checking out the motor. That scared the crap out of my buddys gal, and the bus hunt was off. He passed on the bus.

We got stuck in a heck of a mess from a wreck on Eastbound 44 Sunday afternoon or evening...is this the wreck y'all are talking about? Glad nobody from the group was involved and the bus driver was OK!!
