Major Tom to ground control....

Hello Fellow Skoolies !!
I just saw my dream of owning a school bus become a reality as I picked up Blue Bird One from the School Yard last week. I have a lot of work to do but Im ready for this journey. Thank you all in advance.



Respectfully,

Michael Ploch aka Major Tom

Welcome to the best place on the net. How sweet that your dream is coming true. It is a great feeling. Now for the work. Lots of time and money but time and money well spent. It is enjoyable to go out and work on the bus. Besides that it keeps me out of trouble. Enjoy it and don't hesitate to ask if/when you have questions.

Take your protein pill and put your helmet on and get to work.
Enjoy.
