New to the Forum

Hi, I am Steve. User name Xoloski (Sho-low-ski) in honor my my favorite dog breed Xoloitzcuintli (Sho-low-eats-quentli), and my last name heritage, White Russian (Belarus).

I've searched for forums specific to my 2003 Ford E450 with an El Dorado 15 passenger body. Formerly a elementary school bus for the Eloy, AZ school district. The bus is currently in use as a Wine Tour bus for the Sonoita & Elgin wine country area of southeast Arizona, home to 15+ fine wineries and a few breweries too.

I look forward to interacting with others about buses. I am also an ASE certified mechanic, a former FTA 5311 Transit System manager, an IMSA Certified Traffic Signal Technician, and a number of other things not related to buses.

We currently have two BnB's in Whetstone, AZ 85616, are Realtors with Keller Williams Southern Arizona, and have the Wine Tour bus activity.

Welcome! And what a cool set of businesses you are both involved in. We're up near Flagstaff, but my best friend owns a small boutique hotel in Bisbee. Does your tour biz pick up tourists in Bisbee too, or do they all start in the Whetstone area?

Service area

Hi, thanks for the reply.
YES, we do include Bisbee in our area of service, along with Tombstone, Benson, Patagonia, and Sierra Vista.

In addition to our 14 passenger E450, we also have a smaller 6 passenger Sienna van. Both are listed as passenger space. I am the the driver with CDL & passenger endorsement, My wife, Valley, is the attendant in charge with amenities.

We go to Bisbee often and have a friend that owns the Singletree curio shop downtown. We'd be interested in meeting your friend in Bisbee and discussing our services.

Right on! Stop by the little Jonquil hotel and introduce yourself to Eva or Sterling, her partner. I'll let her know about you. Eva's a bit of an icon and probably knows everyone in town.

Thanks,
We'll do that next we're in Bisbee.

Right now I'm trying to deal with phone providers. Switched to T-mobile, devices won't arrive until 12-7-21, yet Verizon already cut off my service due to T-mobile staff efficiency/inefficiency.
Can't chat with T-Mobile until I establish service with my new phones, can't chat with Verizon because I am no longer a customer.
It's a technological "Catch 22".

Guess I just have some of our own home-made wine. Perhaps a Malbec...
Happy Thanksgiving!

Wine, wood stoves and skoolies. A great combination when cold outside.
