Where Can I Find A Bus Newbie's

Seems like this is more often than not the first question asked, If your going to take the time give yourself a title take another 20 seconds & fill in your town & state info, That will help a lot in passing on pertinent info,, My rant for the day.

Here, here. I'll second that.

Calling all newbs. Please fill out your info so we at least know where you're at, even if you don't have a bus yet.

Don't have to give a street address but a city & state might narrow things down by about
4000 miles.

I can't believe the SAME stuff getting asked every day, sometimes more than once in a day. Do people still not know how google works?
When I bought my project bus, I already had done a TON of reading and had familiarized myself with the products I was looking at/for. It wasn't hard, and I was able to make an informed decision when it came time to purchase.
What gets me are threads where someone's bought a bus without knowing ANYTHING about buses then asks "did I get a good deal/bus".
End rant.

CB, this thread is basically a rant directed towards Newbs that don't fill out at least their location information, not to mention bus info if they've got one. There's so many people joining every day that don't fill anything out on their profile. They often talk about their bus as if we're supposed to know what they're talking about with absolutely no back information.

You know the deal. It's like pulling teeth to get information.

I know that, man.
But one good rant deserves another, sir.

You mean, I can't just ask where I can buy a bus and assume you know where I live? Aren't you psychic?

Agreed. I assumed they were psychic......they seem to know everything else, don't they?

Maybe their omniscience has blind spots.

I took that psychic 101 class in college. Didn't seem to take. The teacher should have known that already.

It is the short attention span of today. I am definitely still a noob and am ready to buy when the right one comes. Been stalking all the threads trying to inform myself on pertinent info. (Thanks everyone for your commitment! )

Have been thinking about starting a thread covering all the basic info that most people ask. Letting all the pros add their 2 cents in one collective location.

But not sure if that would be well accepted or not.
