Anybody from this site?

I was on Highway 270 @ highway 255 last night about 11:30pm, when I saw a partially converted MCI/Prevost style bus going east on 270. It had blue and white stripes on the side of it and Illinois RV plates. Sound familiar to anyone?

I seen a Blue Bird TC2000 on the highway in Grand Rapids a few months ago similar to mine... well started out similar to mine. I chased it for a few miles and took a few pics with my cell phone. Theres some pics of it in my gallery

I think there are a ton more people out there with "skoolies" most of which are not internet savy folks or simply dont know of this site.

This wasnt a skoolie, it was a bigger bus. I did get the plate number so I can get it looked up. Will be finding out by the end of the week.

I did my part to try and let people we encountered with skoolies on our trip know about the site. Whether or not they remember or ever found their way here is another story.
