Title: Finally have the time to go get my bus and drive it 1000 miles home....
Post by: zubzub on November 17, 2007, 02:20:45 PM
Leaving tomorrow morning, going down to Danville Pa, pick up some bits, then on to Duluth.  Couple of small matters to take care of there (aux air tank leak, gen not charging, transit permit) then homeward bound via Sault Saint Marie, Sudbury etc....Have no idea how this is going to turn out, praying I'm not the new Dutch.  I have had to cancel this trip twice when co drivers backed out for work.  So I am going on a solo odyssey.  I once drove  a '65 volvo 2800 miles for it's first trip in 5 years, so I guess I've kind of been here before, we'll just have to see.  I'll be back in a week or so,  no internet on the road for me unless all hell breaks loose. Wish it wasn't so cold though...Patrick.

Just remember the little train....I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!!!  You can do it, you're a bus nut.

Patrick, What are you picking up in Danville?  Can you look at a bus there for me? I assume you are going to the place I am thinking about.  Tom Y

don't know the name of the yard, it's a bus depot of sorts, contact is  Charlie.  I got his name and number from someone in this forum, just can't remember whom.
