Re: What's on your bus wish list?

Well, not to hijack this thread but one time I got pulled over the day after xmas while coming back to colorado in a snowstorm. I was behind oh I'd say about 15 cars with like 25 behind me and Being of sound mind and driving skills decided to go for it just after the top of soldier summit. If your not familiar with this portion of highway there are straight sections that are like miles long on the west side of the summit. So I pass the 15 cars or so that are blistering along at about 20 miles per day and just as I safely achieve my goal this trooper pulls out from behind maybe 30 cars back almost fishtails off the road and races up on me. I'm now going about 45 miles an hour and he comes up so fast that when he brakes he slides half past my ride before regaining composure getting behind me and executing a traffic stop. Envision the view of all 30 some cars behind us. After explaining to me that he doesn't think this occurred in a passing zone, I informed him that I could not see any lines on the snowpacked road. However, I told him I've been driving this road for years and I am pretty darn sure that the zone does exist. After running my info and finding it clean he returns to inform me that he can't really be sure that it wasn't a passing zone and lets me return to my exodus from the aforementioned state. Of course this only led to my later pass of some 30 cars in the same conditions while trying to remain safe as well as I did the first time. It was just Utahded. Safe travels folks

Re: What's on your bus wish list?

I'm sorry to say that there is not a "safer" portion to speak of. Maybe the cities but don't be too sure. The best thing is just be as legal as possible and obviously try hard to be respectful. I f something occurs maybe take the tourist approach and pump up how great and beautiful the state of utah is. Don't try to carry on any sort of opinion based conversation. This goes particularly strong when it comes to talkin' religion. It is a weird world out there! Good luck and if your in central colorado your more than welcome in Leadville for a night s stop or some good local spots for the bus. Wvo is also in plentiful supply and availability. Good luck!

Re: What's on your bus wish list?

Can I get two things from Skoolie Claus? 1. To sell my truck to rent the building to start my bus. and get back to work on the bus. 2. To have enough control to not obsess on the bus to the detriment of my bus.

Re: What's on your bus wish list?

Now that I think of it, I think I'd like some boxes that are windproof for growing some lettuce and green onions. Maybe something thta sits on top of the bus. I guess I mean a solariam if thats how its spelled. Hope I'm on the list of good kids. If not It will have to be built out of good intentions!

I don't think I'm on Santa's good list, but if he changes his mind... I want this for my bus. Not Bill, Megyn.
