I'm under 40 by just a year or two.  I think I was probably the youngest bus owner at Bussin' 2011 at Arcadia.

Yes, 32. 
My bus is used more for a huge play house for my 4 yr old and nightly escape to the man cave when all of the girls ( 1 year old twins, 4 year old and mommy ) get a little to pink for me.

I used to be a "busnut under 40" but that was twenty years ago.  It took a little longer than being 40 before I could fulfill my dream.

Does 40 count?
I think starting young is great. We might know something when we retire.

I think you would be surprised . I know of several who didn't respond yet. Age does matter some what; that I am envious of 30yr old in hobby only because I didn't start til my mid 40's.Does my two 1/2 year old grandson count.  He doesn't miss a coach going down road and is learning what make they are.

Just turned 40 and haven't come to terms with it yet.

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

John, I'll be passing you going the other way!  Bring WARM clothes.  Highs in the low 20's and a few inches of snow to a few feet of snow depending on where you have to go.  Best of wishes!

John,

Are you taking the bus? You all have the possibility of having a lot of fun in the snow. Actually, there is a very good chance you will. Drive safe, and don't take any risks. I seriously say that, because I have helped more then one southerner out of a ditch (but you have probably lived up north before, so you guys are fine Wink).

I am sorry to hear about your uncle. My condolences to you and your family.

Keep us updated on the trip.

God bless,

John
