I haven't seen any pictures of looters in Japan. In fact I haven't seen a lot of any of the problems we saw here after Katrina. Even with the nuclear problems the Japs were far more ready for such an occurance than we would be. Prayers indeed. They'll be up and running again before California ever will be!!

Check out Diablo Canyon! It is on the coast, near San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria California (not too far from Vandenburg Air Force Base too). They store nuke waste and use the ocean water to keep it cool. It is also earthquake area....

And all the atomic bomb testing put nothing in the air?

Settle down busnuts, and put your fears to work on more mundane issues like the maintenance of the coach, and relations with family and friends.

You will be killed by motor vehicle collision or old age, certainly not by hints of radiation floating in from Japan.

Next topic?

happy coaching!

I don't worry about it (after several years of working on nuke missiles and power plants)
Why? I don't want to be the last person alive on earth.

I agree, as long as we need to breathe there just isnt much we can do about this. But I dont fault the Japanese for putting their nuke stuff where they did, heck we do it too!

Is it really lame to create and store such a destructive power and have no way of getting rid of it? drrrr......

Doesn't anyone have a real bus issue to discuss?? 
As BW said, we're all more likely to be crunched.  Me, probably by a truck going up or down a tight turn at the bottom of a WV hill, than radiated.

Train derailments, young kids driving gas and propane trucks, all are more dangerous and likely than nuke disasters. 

Change what you can, but live for today as your last.  i just lost another younger friend to an unexpected blood clot.  I'm not worrying about the Nuke plant down the road from where we're goin.

Anyone know anything about 5 speeds in a 740?  I'll ask again in a new thread. Grin

Cyclops was nuclear-powered! Hence the earlier references to the 'Big Bus' movie.

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.

what may feel like an extra shift in a 740 is just the tc locking up.  depending on what your governed max rpm is it will be either at the top of first gear or the bottom of second.
