Author Topic: Quick Over-niter ... Skiing  (Read 1234 times)

« on: January 21, 2007, 07:22:40 PM »

So decided to head up to the Poconos for an over-niter at Jack Frost, then ski Sunday AM until close.
The temps dropped to about 10.  Yeah, nothing comparing to you boys up in the North (Gumpy!).  You see 10-degrees as "spring". 
Our MC-8 with "all electric" features electric heaters with (2) electric heaters SHY at the moments ... but wasn't too too bad.  I have the heaters to re-install, but all things being equal, wasn't "terrible".
It was nice to wake, dawn ski gear and head to the slopes.  Lunch time came and we saved ourselves $30+ and returned to the coach for lunch and take the dog out.  Another advantage of taking the coach -- no need to find a dog sitter.
So need to get those heaters installed, finish up some other interior stuff to make it comfortable.

**Enjoy your coaches as often as you can, even though they're not 100% done.  Fun-Fun-Fun!!

Glad you had a good time, Jerry. Skiing in a coach is great! We did it a couple times last year, and it's fun not to have to eat/ hang out in a lodge.

Too bad we can't do it yet this year, since we somehow swapped winters with Craig, and my bus is still buried in the white stuff. We got another 6" today on top of the dumps we've gotten like clockwork for the last six weeks. Bah! I'm used to this stuff being gone after three days of warm CO sunshine... but now it's piling up (not melting) and starting to look like the Midwest.

Wow Brian! I knew your bus was long, but long enough to ski in, that  is fantastic. LOL

Yeah Brian,

We're still newbies, but we've (I think) taken to it like fish to water -- more or less.  Linda used to ski, so she was the catalyst last season.  Yeah, being the first ski trip with da' bus, it was nice not to be reliant on a "lodge" to get fed and warm at lunch.  Searching for a table, crowded, expensive, etc.  Back to "your own" place to chill (so to speak).

Sorry about your coach being buried ... and can you send photos of
Skiing in a coach is great!
