Just Where did the name Running Bare come from.



Well my wife n I hadn't planed to keep the name that the previous owners had place above the old girl's windshield (see http://www.usbusiness.com/helicopter/Bare.htm), but the story is a true classic with out any embellishments so I guess it is there to stay......................

I had been searching hi n lo for a diesel pusher for about 24 months when I ran across one I could not only afford, one that fit my narrow list of acceptable manufacturers. Well as U know a FC is not a pusher but this old girl was the best I could afford................

During my fone conversation with the old girl's owner as I was committing my self to the trek from N.E. Pennsylvania to southern Texas to see her in person, I hear the owner say over the fone "well there is one problem with my motor home"........

Contemplating traveling 2,ooo +/- miles to personally inspect an 18 year old Blue Bird n hearing those few words, many many thoughts raced thru my mind at that moment, the first n only one I now can remember was "it must B hot" (stolen)........................

To make a long unique story short, turns out the motor home was named "Running Bare". The old girl's, a 1981 FC 35, 2 previous owners are not only nudists, the old girl was parked in the nudist RV park in southern Texas that the present owner owned. Oh, I could tell U all about the 2 times a somewhat straight laced north easterner like my self visited Running Bare in the nudist RV park, but I am sure I would bore U to death with the details I think the old girl's original name of Running Bare should stay, don't U?..................
