Here is a link to Google Street View.  I admire anyone who has driven a bus through that!

Yes I have seen it before and yes they do it all the time.

No I would not do it in one of our buses as we only have one 96" wide bus anymore and it's taller than an MCI!

My friend Travis owns a company in Rapid City, SD that does that tour all the time.
But he will tell you very quickly "my Van Hools don't do that onem that's why we still have some old MC9's!"

Yes after looking at it again it is one of Travis's buses. I'm just used to his Van Hools that say Dakota Bus or Dakota Trailways on them.

That is his 96A3 that was in LaPlace with dad an I for 2 wks after Katrina.

But he must have decided to start using it for that trip.
He used to tell us that and forest fire transportation was the only reason they kept the 9's around. He said he loved the 9's for fire work because they had vinyl seats and they could go in and spray everything down with a stuff called "Smoke Away" and then turn a water hose lose on them and they'd be cleaned up an ready to go again! (try that with cloth seats! LOL!
