This weekend, we found our bus. It was on eBay, and, miracle of miracles it was nearby. So we set up a time to go look at it, and went over it very well. It suited us perfectly. Air ride, air brakes, air drivers seat, telescoping tilt wheel, fantastic windows, yada yada. You know the drill, everything you are looking for.
Well, I knew it would come close to busting our entire budget, so I thought I would be smart guy and use Auction sniper.
Set it up, everything looked kosher. I watched it with bated breath the last ten minutes, I mean it was like friggin New Years Eve here. Countdown and all! Then, in the last few seconds, I thought maybe eBay had a lag, or something. My bid wasn't placed. Switched back over to Auction Sniper, and it says "invalid username or password".
I was crazy with grief. My wife even liked this one.
She sat in it, started it, liked the windows. They flip up, like awnings. Pretty awesome. Tinted too. Huge back window, HUGE. Just a marvelous family adventure mobile. Our future, riding in that bus. We wouldn't even have to replace anything, really. Just remove seats and go to work inside. The rear door was massive, so easy to get the dual sport bikes in. Four of them need to pass through that door, to go to Texas in about a month. It seems, that without that bus, our plans for last years vacation (yeah, you read it right) are going up in smoke.
I feel like a huge, huge failure.
Gotta find another one, and fast.
My wife is upset with me. I can tell. She won't get out of bed.
I think my daughter is even disappointed.
