my life has been slightly crazy recently.... just finished decorating fake christmas trees in colorado (still wondering at what point I will be forced into getting a 'real' job...) <-- it was great to see colorado, as it was the one state west of the mississippi we had to avoid on our trip (as our e-brake wasn't too strong and our bus leaked a little something or other and we thought the hills wouldn't be great for for the bus). anyway, as I haven't posted in a while, my question de jour is the following:
what is the best (or your favorite) lesson/life advice you received whilst traversing/building your bus?
I will answer first:
we had a guest book on our bus, for visitors to sign (I highly recommend this if you are heading out on a journey, as a lot of people will want to view your bus and it is fun to track who/what/when/where and why), we asked people to put down their names, where they were from, and life advice. some were serious (think 'follow your heart' type entries) some were well worth considering (think 'never eat at a chinese restaurant in texas') and some included invitations to stay with people down the road (which we, of course, accepted).
but my all time favorite, as written by a 6 year-old boy who was so fascinated by our bus that he dropped his bike in the middle of the road and climbed aboard for a look (much to the horror of his mother <-- and the horror of us, because we were convinced his mother thought we were trying to kidknap her son) his advice:
"never eat a hamburger in a pack of hungry wolves"
now that, in my opinion, is advice to live by!
