For any of you who might want a good suggestion for a shipping company, I personally use and always recommend CFR Lines in Paramount, California. They've handled shipping on my own personal cars in the past and have shipped cars to just about every place you can imagine for customers as well. You can find them at www.cfrline.com Their prices have always been competitive and I've never had a problem with them. Most guys I know who ship stuff internationally use them.

Chris, these are the only pictures I took. I haven't seen his bus in easily 10 years or so??? It was a real shocker for most of us to see it there! Any hoot, Carlos is down for next year's gathering.

Linda, were these the guys we used to ship out my Westy out to Rotterdam?? If so, I'd highly recommend this company.

I believe so, but I'm not positive. We shipped all of those Buses to Holland through the same company.

hmm. That gives me one year to get something ready. Of course if I make it I will be driving a stock 36hp from the bay area. No trailer for me. This would be a great adventure for my very first OCTO! Anyone else driving (slow) from the north? Andre? Greg and Clara?

A year, eh? I'll be there.....just not sure I'll drive mine that far though it sounds like a real adventure. But a caravan sounds like a great trip!

If I can do it so can you Pete! I'm the reclusive never-leave-my-house guy anyway so I'll be shaking sweating the farther I get from Santa Cruz! The only thing that will sustain me is large numbers of barndoors in close proximity.... Very Happy

Pretty sure I'll be attending this meet.
However, almost defiantly as a lurker as my bus won't be in a fit state for an ocean voyage this time. If it was it would defiantly be coming over. A states visit was already on it's cards. Maybe next record attempt?
But if some of the euro buses do make it over then I hope you know we will be expecting some US buses at one of the up and coming European record attempts Wink

Hope gerson and splitpartsunlimited are prepared for a sudden surge in orders Smile

A year in advance is a good heads up. If both you, Rick, and Pete have the drive ............ you can get them road worthy. You don't have to worry about a caravan down, the Bus Farmers got that sorted out and by the looks of it, I won't doubt these guys will double their numbers from the previous cruise down.

AWESOME Eric! Lind-O-Calrisian or Beef Cake Bruno can ride shot gun!? When the time gets closer and folks have a better idea on their plans ........... your caravan hook up will come through.

Both you guys ........... don't be like certain element who's up in here! Wink You will both have a good time. Just the thought alone of a massive Barndoor Caravan down here is a good enough reason to participate.

Mate, it's really inexpensive for Euro's to venture out to the "Colonies". I get jealous at times or say to myself ........" I remember those days ", when Euro's are here talking about how inexpensive it is for them to be here. So this would be an easy task for you to sort out! It's well worth the trip. Aside from this Barndoor Line Up, you will see both cars and stuff you've never seen before. And during the week prior there are TONS of Open Houses fiestas, bbq's, cruises and what!? The list is endless.

If any of you guys do venture out, I will organize a private tour of a private collectionS I know of which will knock your knickers off! REALLY! This guy has TONS of stuff, never brings them out nor has anyone over. I can get a private tour. So that is just another flavor into the mix.

As time gets closer I will help anyone out plan their holiday. So with this said, TIM & SCOTTY!!! You have NO excuses now!!! REALLY Wink

How about roll on roll of to brunswick florida drive across and ship the buses back home from california Very Happy


Brunswick is in Georgia, not far from Florida. Brunswick is 30 miles north of the Georgia/Florida Border and maybe 50 miles from Jacksonville and the I-10. The I-10 goes directly to L.A. Porsche, VW, Mercedes, etc utilize the Brunswick port.

LMK if I can offer any assistance, I am in Neptune Beach, Florida(Jacksonville) About 50-70 miles south of the Port of Brunswick.

You should talk to MaHk Rafferty. He's ventured across from Florida several times. Give him a gingle. He is aware of this event.

Of course it does Mate! That would be AWESOME if you guys made the voyage out to the "Colonies" in your Buses!!!!

Scotty .......... here is your chance mate. I've spoke to Bear in Spacebook and he & Andrew are all for it!! REALLY.

A British invasion would be great Very Happy
As Scotty said Mmmmmmmm


Like I said, we haven't had a serious British Invasion in some time. This is also open to anyone who would like to participate. I know most of you British Barndoor owners and you guys know I will welcome you with open arms, But you have to buy me a pint, not Corona because we don't drink that piss! It's for the tourists. REALLY! Wink

This year gap gives everyone enough time to either plan their holiday or get their Barndoor project ready for the event.


..now THAT's food for thought! Very Happy Cool


can this be a dry run ..... as there are a few of us saving to do this in 2014... you guys going to make it??? 3 years to save!!

Doubt I'd be able to bring the bus though.
