Bus finally in the driveway!!

After a long time dreaming and planning we finally got our bus!! It seems to run well with no issues occuring on its 2 hour ride home!! Started to pull the seats out and cleaning up tons of dirt. This forum has been a lifesaver to get the ball rolling!!!

Wear a face shield AND glasses!


These are around $15 and well worth it. I'm NOT a big "safety" kinda person, but after grinding steel for 12 years I learned to wear one, and double up with the glasses.

What He said!!


I had a brush with bad luck a couple of years ago. Could have landed me with no sight in one eye. Fortunately healing prevailed.

What terribly dangerous machine was I operating that nearly cost me an eye?

Push broom....... And no safety glasses.

I learned my lesson.
