Hmmm. . . First post in here!

Wonder if anyone's interested in some "war stories" from back in my days of driving charters.

Does that fall under the auspices of the discussion heading?

 Huh

Charters use buses, right!  Wink

I'm sure you have some interesting tales that would make the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Grin

I did it wrong. No real war stories. just 2 flats over 20 yrs and a blown exhaust gasket that I consider a problem.      Bob

RJ,

Was great to visit with you last month.

I'm sure many would be interested in the "War Stories". Most of us that ever drove commercial buses have some.

What the heck, if they don't want to read them, they can just not open them.

That's my position!

In my humble opinion, any stories pertaing to driving a bus that might improve my driving and safety are always welcome reads..
