You might be a Busnut if:   

You pull up next to a 200,000.00 sticks and staples in a rest area.   Get out and look at your uncompleted shell with temp furniture and metal patches, half primered

surfaces, cold drinks in a cooler bunged to the floor next to your stack of maintenance manuals and as you look over at the shiney S&S think "Man, There for but the grace of

God go I"  8)

While at the doctors office someone says that they had 2 strokes and you start a 30 minute conversation on Detroits before you know what they were talking about.  :P

If you open the window on your passenger car or truck about 6” at a toll booth to get your ticket or pay a toll … you might be a BusNut.

If you hear there’s a “Blue-Light special” on RV toilet tissue at K-Mart and drop what you’re doing, making a mad dash for the sale … you might be a BusNut.

If you know that Fast Fred is a person and not a horse racing handicapping program or that a “noise maker” isn’t something used exclusively on New Year’s eve, you might be a BusNut.

If you’re talking to friends and neighbors about your recent bus trip, telling them where you stayed, but find yourself replacing a hotel name for the name “Wal-Mart” … you just might be a BusNut.

If you even know the reference between a bridge in Chicago and the Dave Matthews Band … you might be a BusNut.

If you’re referencing “Luke” … and not discussing the Bible or Star Wars, you might be a BusNut.

If you've got your wife and kids shouting "Wanna-be-Bus" when they see a "sticks & staples bus-like" unit on the highway, you might be a BusNut (and grooming your offspring for the same!).

If you are at a campground … a bus meet … a Wal-Mart … or ANY place on earth, staring into the open engine compartment of a bus with more than yourself in complete silence – "JUST TAKING IT ALL IN" … you just might be a BusNut.

:D

OK, the following is absolutely true, with my hand up...
You might be a busnut if...

You prefer the smell of diesel fumes to perfume.
You don't realize that you're the only person in your entire state that REALLY wants one of those incenerator toilets.
You plan your vacations around where the PETRO truck stops are along the way. (http://www.petrotruckstops.com/)
When your brother-in-law brags about how much he spent on his new pool, you respond, "man, do you know how many 22.5" tires I could buy with that kind of money?" (this actually happened...you could have heard a pin drop.)
Your wife says, "boy, just think of what we could do with all the money if you would just sell your bus." and you say, "I believe I'd rather just get a divorce."  BTW, I ended up selling the bus...

AND LAST OF ALL...You spend three days hooking up a satellite dish system on your bus so you can have a "special" place to watch your football games!

You might be a Bus Nut if the only toilet that fits your BUTT is in YOUR BUS !

You might be a Bus Nut if you spend 3 days stocking the Bus up for a 3-hour trip.

You might be a Bus Nut if you are scheduled to work a very long day and you decide
to Take The Bus to work so that you can take a nap before driving the 45 minutes home.

You might be a Bus Nut is your wife want's to go to the store and you take the bus so that
you can stop in front of the entrance of Publix and let her out.....

You might be a Bus NUT if you visually gauge every parking lot to see if your bus will only fill
two parking spaces and can make the turns to get in and out.

That's all I got for now....

If you complain when you "HAVE" to stay in a hotel on a trip. . . . You might be a busnut!

If you scream "BUS!!" when you see one coming down the road. . . You might be a busnut!

If your photo album for your bus is bigger than the one for your family. . .  You might be a busnut!

... you climb in your car and notice the steering wheel is much smaller than you remember.

... your friend mentions he had his personal watercraft in the bay last weekend, and you think "Yeah, it'd probably fit in one of 'em."

... last month's cell phone bill shows regular calls from your house to you late at night. Turns out they were just your wife calling you in the bus to tell you she's going to bed and was wishing you "Good night".

... Someone says something about a "riveting discussion" and you are disappointed to learn that it has nothing to do with the little metal fasteners.

... After checking the MAK board posts for the fourth time today, you realize you never brought the mail in from the mailbox yesterday.

LOL this has happened.

You might be a busnut if... You drive 20 miles out of your way for a chance to see a bus on the expressway.

You might be a busnut if... Your kids go out for the night and when they get home they tell you they saw two MCI and a vanhool.

You might be a busnut if...When just a plain old charter bus makes your heart skip a beat with thoughts of what you could do with her.

You might be a BusNut if ... on a winter day in the northeast on a 2-lane road, you get stuck behind a tour bus, but don't mind.  Instead, you open your windows hoping to smell the diesel exhaust, sit back, relax and follow the bus ... enveous ... wishing you were driving.

Post by: gumpy on October 10, 2006, 05:16:54 AM
... if your kids become "popular" because their Dad picked them up from school in a Greyhound Bus!

... if you have your family trained to say, "See that bus?" whenever they see a bus on the highway...

... if it becomes a contest to see who can say it first...

... if you get "the look" from your family because you beat them to it whenever you see a bus in the background of a tv commercial or program.

... you offend your neighbor by referring to his new RV as a "sticks and staples".

You might be a busnut.

...If you would rather spend Thanksgiving at a busnut rally than around relatives & family.

...When shoping for anything, if you consider how it is gonna fit in the bus before deciding to purchase.

...If your kids want to go on a school field trip & don't know the destination, all they are interested in is the bus ride.

...Your kid gets up early so he can ride the school bus longer.

...If your co-workers are taking pictures of buses they see on their travels for you.

...If you are late for church because you had to 'drive by' a bus someone told you about.

...If your co-workers actually want to see the Timmonsville rally pictures.

...If your friends expect a bus update everytime they see you.

...If you have gotten 'the look' so often that you no longer notice.

You might be a busnut

You might be a BusNut if ... you're traveling in your bus "with friends or family" and someone in "that" group says, "There's a nice Bus..." (pointing to a sticks & staples fiberglass unit -- clearly clueless).  You know your conditioning has paid off when you needn't say a word ... your wife and two kids replies, "...That AINT no Bus!!" 

Mind you ... we as a family do give "some" allowances to newbies traveling with us.  They're afforded 3 false alerts, after which they're politely removed from the bus on their 4th (in a safe location of course).  :D  Kidding.

If ...

- you name bus parts when asked what you'd like for holiday or birthday gifts.

- you slow down to intentionally get stopped at traffic lights when there's an older coach stopped there so you can check it out.

- you roll down your car window and try to get your friends to recognize a bus engine by its sound.

- you pull up next to a high-end S&S on the interstate and look down (literally) on them.

- you hate SUV's 'cause they're too big but think it's cool to sit up higher than just about anything on the road.

- you think about putting a bumper sticker that says "Mine's Bigger" on the bus.

- you successfully back the bus into your 150' long 11' wide driveway (nervous as hell), get out, and tell your friends "Nothing to it!"

- when taking your bus out on your first bus drive, you get really sad when you return home.

- you don't mind spending more on diesel for one trip than you do for an entire month's worth of electricity for your house.

- your friends ask how the bus is coming along instead of your house remodelling when they see you.

Ain't that one the truth!!

Here's another...

If you saved some of your bus seats and you use them as lounge chairs in your shop ... you might be a BusNut.

If you actually don't mind (rather "like") that interior intercity tour bus smell ... you might be a BusNut.  <= yeah, I am sick!  :P

If you are behind on your conversion, have a stock pile of "things for your bus" to install but can't find enough hours in a day to install them ... YET you still find the need to purchase MORE "things" because they're a good deal ... you might be a BusNut.  And you can never B*tch about your wife being out spending money!! :D  Well you can, because yours is a deal, and "YOU NEED IT".  While hers is a frivilous expense.  Ha!

Hey baby, you're not reading this ... are you?

Hi all,

YMBAB if,
When driving anywhere with the family your four children can recognize a bus coming from waaay down the road, and scare the bejesus out of their grandfather by yelling "BUSSSSS!!!".

Then my father looks at me with incredulity when I can name the make and model of most all of them.

You Might Be A Busnut if:

You're sitting there hitting the refresh button to see if anyone has posted.

True, Even though you have a good bus, when the guy from a campsite over says he has a Scenicruiser with no motor in his backyard, and he wants fifty bucks for it, you actually asked your wife if you could have it.

You might be a busnut ...

If everytime your wife asks you what you are thinking about the reply is "The Bus!"

If the bus conversion is in the family budget and has more allocated to it than house remodeling!

If a vacation without the bus isn't a vacation

If a roadtrip where the car could be taken instead of the bus is rejected and the bus is taken even though it costs more in diesel!
