Your Bus On Your Profile?HuhHuh??
I am pretty new to this Bus thing and I come here for answers and give help where I can. When I am chating in the bus garage or reading a thread I often click on Profiles to see who is commenting and what kind of bus they have. More and more I am finding less and less on your profiles. Now as a fellow BUS NUT, I think I know how you feel about your bus. So, why not list it on your profile? Or am I missing something? I can see why the personnal info. can be sparce. It sure would help with the Meet & Greet thing. What do you think? All the Best, M&C

This subject comes up every once in a while. I know because I've asked the same question several times. The responses I get include, "Just don't want to give out personal information", this includes bus information, location ect........

Most of the regulars here have some of that information already posted, others just choose not to for one reason or another. It's all a matter of choice. Wink

lots of folks aren't the best at this computer stuff, nor do they want to spend the time fooling.

You're lucky to find as many profiles as you do!

It's a huge jump to have some of us on the compuker to begin with!

happy coaching!

For me, the bus year and model plus the general area makes being helpful easier.  Mostly the area helps if someone needs help or a part or whatever.  Personally I don't get why any one feels this is too much info, but this bus thing does attract a varied, individualistic (and sometimes persnickety) bunch.  Smiley

Here in Pennsyltucky, we have Intercourse (That's out East), "Moon" township, and Mars.  I sometimes drive through Indiana, Oklahoma, or occasionally California or Washington-We call it "Whoreshington" in these parts.  Tongue We don't have Venus. I'm unsure why. I know this area is mostly conservative and heterosexual in nature... Huh

I have nothing to hide, I'm not doing anything wrong, and am not paranoid.  Further, I refuse to adopt a victim attitude!  I don't care if you know I'm in Quinlan North Texas, or my real name.  BFD,  My old beat up bus ia a 1991 MCI102A3 ex Dart bus 8284 that ran in Dallas.   I bought her in Corona California from the guy who bought her from the broker who bought her and a LOT of her sisters from Dallas.  What, someone going to hunt me down 'cuz they might deduce some 'secret' about my bus?   LOL

Guess I'm a grumpy old in-your-face-kinda-arse.  Had an inmate once name of, Jack McKraken threaten me, told me he'd send some of his boys by to visit me if I didn't start looking the other way.  He was a wanna be mob hit man who capped two teamsters who lived and testified against him.  I gave Jack my trucks plate numbers and my address, told him to send his boys by for a warm welcome.  I then pointed out they didn't search me when I entered the building.  Muahaha.  Somehow he never found the time to call 'his boys'.

Life is way too short!  Y'all gotta not take things so frappin serious!   =)

I think what Mike is saying is that it is not easy to help some guy with a question about his engine or bus when he doesn't give a clue as to the type.

This happens all the time, never have been able to figure that one out?

If it is in his profile that makes it much easier. 

Has nothing to do with being serious or not serious.

When a nut asks a question it shouldn't be necessary to run a search to find out what equipment he is asking about!!

Post the dang information with the question!!

I find that it would be nice if the profiles would at least provide your bus type and the state you live in. You could have a fellow Bus nut a few towns away and never know it. I have posted before about Busnuts in the area and have had very few responses, must be a best kept secret. Sometimes it fun to share information in person than strictly on line especially if you happen to be near each other. You never know the wives might also have something in common. Maybe a chance to strike up a new friendship also.

These are all great responses, but I have to tell ya, it aint gonna happen unless it's required, and I don't see that happening either. It's all a matter of choice, and of the 2,000 plus memebers only a few really use the board anyway.

The folk who do post all information about bus brand, motor, trans, location and any other information are in my book considered "The Chosen Few"! Grin

We have always posted our information and so far, (knocking on the wooden desk) have never had a problem, but have met many wonderful fellow busnuts.  We even have a busnut from Australia planning to stop by in a couple weeks.  Jack

Treat that Aussie and any Kiwi you might run into very well.  They are famous for their hospitality and they relish "payback".  Go ahead, ask me how I know this.... Smiley

Have a great visit,

It's too bad that some would rather just share information behind a computer on this board than to actually meet new people face to face and share information, especially a newbee bus owner. Sometimes when you actually see other conversions it gives you a better idea as to what others are doing and why, it gives you a chance to ask questions as to why they did it that way etc. My conversion is not ready for the road or rallies but it would be really great to meet someone locally that has completed theirs or are even in progress to sit and talk and share ideas. Also knowing who is local to your area might even give you a chance to set up your own mini rally at a park or even someones home. If we had only known.

Steve, you are right on the money. My wife and I both feel like we have a new family and we want to meet everyone of them. We would like to share info., see how their systems are set up and show off ours. This site is a great starting point for alot of us "NewBees" and we don't want to join a club perse, we want to promote friendship between persons with a common intrest. The Bus. This thread has revealed that some of us bus owners want more contact with others for the greater good of the bus lifestyle. Can this site provide a registry for those of us how want to be more open to meeting and greeting each other? All the Best, M&C

Could it be that those that are afraid to post info about themselves have something to hide or is hiding from someone like a bill collector or IRS or maybe even the law?
Heck I'm known on a first name basis with all of the above and I found its best if you put yourself out in the world. That way, they don't bug you by hunting you down! You guys that have all these excuses about putting info out in the public or on the net is just that! An excuse to hide the truth!

Ok my mistake! I usually try and speak English although some of you can't understand even that!
I've been in jail, back when I was married to Hell's partner.
I once lied to a bill collector that was harrassing me for a bill or multiple bills that a woman owed. They kept calling my number asking for her and one day I decided to be her. When they found out I wasn't her, they got the message and never called back.

The IRS? Yea I owed them big at one time! VERY BIG! To the tune that it was in the high 6 digits but like all else, that has been cleared up and I have more now than I did when I WAS trying to hide!

Do all yourselves a favor. Don't hide! Who cares if you only have so much retirement or SS! Who cares if your with someone different than you were a while back! Who cares if you got bills and have been late! Hey welcome to the world pal! EVERYONE well almost everyone has bills AND a past! Your life can be so much better if you just face it head on!
