Yes, sorry, Fort Bragg, Northern California. About as close to Hawaii as you can get without
swimming. I just dropped it in as a platform for the "dramatic incident" story. Didn't
think anybody would pay attention to where it actually was. Notoriously winding
road in these parts. Lots of logging. So pretty, it's takes your breath away.

I'm still not used to how the internet reaches the entire world. I sit here typing like you
guys are all within shouting distance!

This is such a big country, there is practically no such thing as a unique name. I think
there is a Princeton in every state.

(Warning. Trucking story coming up.)

I once worked for a local delivery service here in Northern California. One day, they
hired a new driver, put him in a half ton Chevy van, gave him a package and told him
to deliver it to such and such address in Pittsburg.

He telephoned from Reno, Nevada, and said he had forgotten to ask how to buy fuel
along the way. He was on his way to Pennsylvania.

Pittsburg, California, is right here in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I can only find one Eveleth in this whole United States. The rest of you just must be conformists or something.

Yes we did kinda run astray, well, alot astray....too funny about Greenville's NC and IL.

Now back on track.......cool looking bus, I do like the "bull" bar on the front of it. The sheetmetal over the windows to start saves alot of time. I definately think that its a good thing that it has an air ride seat......the ride could be a bit bumpy with the short wheel base.
