Re: The Bus with No Name, yet...

You're right, Elliot. Most ladies would slap you. Out here in W. Tx. it's still cowboy country and a lot of those old names (for that more mature generation) still exist. And as I'm sure you would guess, there are many double names. Bobby Jo, Mary Sue and the like. And not to brag, Elliot, but there are many long, tall attractive women out here. "Lurlene" actually came from one of my favorite movies. Set in TX. of course. One of the characters was named Lurlene. I love that name.

Now for a story... We went on a 3 day shakedown cruise to see if all was working properly....Had a great time.....Kinda felt like traitors because we have always tent camped and I mean for weeks at a time, maybe spending 2 or 3 nights in a bed out of 30 days and often times more. Our first morning we went on a 5 mile hike that ended back at the bus at lunch time. Man it was nice to come in, open the frig and grab something cold to drink, stretch out on the couch, turn on the stereo and relax. Yeah, I loved it.

But that's not the story....On the way home, Julie and I stopped in a small town to get an ice cream. Standing in a rather long line we overheard this. "Did you get off that bus parked out front?" To which we heard the reply, "No, and thank goodness I didn't!!" Julie looked at each other and smiled. We've done it!

*chuckle* We have had a neighbor ask "Is that where you are going to park it?" When pointing at some ground I was spreading a couple 10-wheeler loads of gravel on. I replied "yep". His mouth dropped opened as he said "in front of your house?" I said "yep". The funny part is we live on a couple of acres. In front of our house is about a hundred feet from the DIRT road we live on and behind many, many 10'-70' tall pine trees. One has to almost be looking for the bus to see it from the road. My wife and I just chuckle at them as they hurry to spread the gossip over the back fence.

Timbuk...never be allowed? Hell we let a dog in the other day....No seriously, you'd be welcome....and if you had a bottle of whiskey in one hand and a bottle of tequila in the other hand you could stay forever....or until all was gone, whichever came first. Hell we might throw all caution to the wind and come see you. Only thing is....we'd have to stay forever cause we couldn't afford to drive anywhere else.

That is, by far, the nicest looking bus I've ever seen (no offense to the rest of you). I love how bright the interior is and the wood is awesome. And, the outside is very tasteful and classy. Nice work!
