I lost my bus...

I messed up and allowed life (my 7, 6, and 3 year old daughters) to distract me while bidding on the bus I lost sleep over for 3 nights leading up to the auction. Not blaming my wonderful daughters at all. This is all on me
It's a long shot, but I figured I'd throw it out there... if anyone here bought a 2004 3800 from Byesville, OH this past Monday (govdeals), and you'd like to make a quick $1000, please let me know.

Don't be too upset there will be more busses for sale maybe even a better one than what you were bidding on.

When I find one I want I bid the maximum I'm comfortable paying and then I leave it alone. My maximum is very low.

2004 3800s are everywhere and easy to find... they are pretty generic units.. Ohio busses are usually pretty Rusty so you may not be out too much by losing that auction..

Thanks, gents, for your input. I realize 3800s are not extraordinary platforms. What I was drawn to in this particular bus was how clean and well maintained it was. Rebuilt DT466E, new brakes, new fuel tank, new batteries, new tires, two working Carrier AC units.

Oh well, wasn't meant for me. Maybe best to hold out for that mid size AZ bus with an 8.3
