Re: Interesting Bus

That's a fifteen window pusher. I'd say that's about as long as a school bus gets.

Re: Interesting Bus

Why do you think it's "unusual"? Just drive down Hwy 64 along the Ocoee River (East of Cleveland TN) during the summer and you will see several Crowns used to haul whitewater rafters. That's what the local school buses do in the summer time. Hamilton & Bradley counties contract with the drivers for the school buses. In the summer, they contract with the local rafting & kayak companies. It's also why there are so many different makes of buses on the roads there too.

Re: Interesting Bus

Funny thing is that many years ago I was learning to play banjo from a Tony Trischka book. I was in California. One of the songs was named Soddy Daisy. Another song was called Kingston Springs. At that time, I just thought that Tony just made up those names for the tunes.

It wasn't until years later when I discovered that they are names of towns in Tennessee.

It's actually Soddy-Daisy. Has a hyphen in the middle since it is a combination of two names. Nice place, low crime. It is a small town only 15 minutes or so Northish of Chattanooga. Close enough to enjoy what Chatt offers but far enough away to not have to deal too much with them.... until Chattanooga swallows them up.

From their website...
Quote:
There are various tales about how Soddy and Daisy were named. One maintains Soddy is an anglicization of the Indian “Tsati” meaning sipping place. With Soddy Lake, the many creeks and streams, this could be true. A second states that Welch inhabitants corrupted the name of William Sodder’s Trading Post to “Soddy.” The Community of Daisy was named after Daisy Parks, daughter of Thomas Parks, who was the vice-president of the Tabler-Clendys Coal Company. Both Daisy and Soddy were thriving coal mining communities until the 1930's. A hosiery mill, turpentine plant, several pottery and tile kilns were active in Soddy and Daisy during the same period. In April 1969, the communities of Soddy and Daisy, extending for about 9 miles along U.S. 27, were incorporated.
