Our last name begins with G. I suggested G spot (because it will be "our spot") or maybe G with a giant "dot/spot" afterwards. I'm female FYI and we have been married 25+ years. LOL my husband thought it was hilarious.

Our bus is:

Yeah man, you're really Going The Distance homie!

We've got a few names rolling around for the front cap of our bus. We are dedicated Celtic Fooball Club supporters and since Celtic are on such a great run of success we plan to do a LOUD green and white Celtic theme with our bus. May even pop for a custom plate.

I just learned that I want the 1934 hood ford hood ornament to go with the art work I want to put on the sides of the bus that will include representative paintings of racing sleddogs
Have you seen the hood ornament from (the now long defunct) Brockway truck?

“Bertha”
Big Bertha and her bouncy big butt.
“Bertha don’t come round here no more....”
We were frequently asked to leave places in MO where we started so it fits well.

8 of them, in pairs, running right down the centerline of the hood......dragging a sled, with leather traces.

You'd never see another like it.

Comfort Eagle actually has two aliases. The first alias is Birdstrike. This name comes from the grouse I took thru the windshield in NE on my way home from NorCal to MD.

The second alias is relatively new: Petulant Princess...😀
