We just bought a bus! Now a name..

We just bought a 1997 Thomas International 3800 today. It's perfect. Rides and drives great, sounds good. Going to try to take up the rubber flooring this weekend, Ohio weather permitting lol.
Anyway, we need a name!! Any ideas?? She's a tan color!

Buses acquire their names organically. It’ll just happen

Exactly! Like Kara's (my wife) old art studio bus...one day she said it's the Best Art Bus Ever...and from that BABE was born.

I intentionally didn't chime in with a name suggestion last night, even with wine as an influencer, because it seems like a very personal thing. I thought Mocha, but your bus isn't quite dark enough to be mocha colored. I tried to think of clever names, but came up blank. I ignored the obvious, because I didn't think you would want a bus named Ross. But my mind must have been churning while I slept, because I woke up thinking about your bus. Odd. And the first thing that popped into my head this morning was Tango the bus. It's tan and it will go. And one should dance through life...and it's better with a partner. Tango.

Love that Ross obviously was being very respectful and empathetic to the naming of someone else's new baby, yet subconsciously he was giving it a lot of thought while 😴.

I also love the name and all the associations he stated.

Too bad the bus wasn't the last of it's kind in France, then it could be The Last Tango in Paris. 🤗

Fellow Ohio resident! We just got a short bus ourselves, hoping to get started on the demo this weekend ourselves. Your bus looks rad!
