On March 22nd our brand new Facebook page went “Live”. Paul Lawry, a well-known bus nut designed the page for us and he is the Chief Moderator. Buck Trout is the secondary Moderator. We have wanted to do this for over a year now and we finally had the time to do it. When Paul and Buck stepped up to the plate to set it up for us, I was very excited.
