I didn't mean to thump matches on your spilled gasoline
I'm sure you didn't! And apology excepted!
I'll not apologize for the intent of my post.
Didn't ask for an apology!
After all the bantering between us, it really bothers me that you would read so much negativity & belligerance into my reply when none was intended. I thought the sarcasm came across differently.
AND after the hassle you've given me, I should have the right to hassle you back! Ain't that what friends do?
As I said I've been totally stressed out! Between not being able to "go" anywhere, trying to keep things going smoothly with the bus company, trying to deal with a major contract to keep the tow trucks busier(which they are self supporting & paid for! And normally I don't have much to do with them, but new contracts require my signature. Which means way too much small print for my simple mind and much research BEFORE I SIGN ANYTHING! Not to mention I been trying to put this off and Jack & Matt finally were able to corner me with it since they were able to "catch me"), and the most stressful of all is trying to decide whether or not to jump off into a MILLION $ Debt by buying out my friend and competitors company; buses (2 awesome '06 Setra S417's, and a sweet low mileage '95 S215), contracts, drivers (only one said we won't come with the buy out as he's been trying to "retire" for several years and "Don won't let him!"), & HEADACHES! For just $15,000.00 per month (whether the buses move or not !) We can have it all lock, stock & barrel! Which means way too much small print for my simple mind and much research BEFORE I SIGN ANYTHING! Oh have I mentioned that the way Dad an I have done our business so far is to pay cash for everything and be debt free! With the exception of our monthly insurance bill, of course!
So yes being stuck here at home/office with too much time to worry about these things, I'd just had too much!
AND Yes, I agree you or anyone on this board should be able to hassle me, as much as I do others!
I was just not myself at the time! But I'm better now! The wrecker deal is done, and I had a "fix"!
I enjoy the motivation I have received about getting one of mine on the road & it really helps. But I will NOT rush into this & miss the journey. I'm meeting the best people I've ever met in my life. Also, when you're trying to find parts for a scenicruiser, you better have DEEP pockets or patience. So since my pockets are shallow, I'm working on patience.)
Hey I understand not wanting to rush it and mess it up! But hey getting one useable doesn't mean it's gotta be DONE! Ahh remember how stressed out "Belfert" got last year when he wasn't done enough for his trip? Well he got over it, and has been using it and enjoying it! And it "still ain't done!"
Ahh also look at Buddydawg he's bringing his to the rally this weekend literally as a tin tent!
Ahhh now I and any and everyone
on this board know that parts for any bus are expensive (Setra sends mine in Mercedes Benz boxes so I'll at least feel better about what I pay for them! LOL!)! But we thought that's what you keep bringing all those extra parts buses home for! LOL! Get one rolling! Even if it's just a way cool "tin tent" get it where you can feel the experience and it will motivate you to continue to work on it as $ allows!
Also you can't rush 'ART'. So that's my story & I'm sticking with it!
I DO AGREE! But haven't ya heard of art in motion? LOL!
By the way is this better?
