Bus Owners

February 25, 2010

Now, I have always assumed and it has proven to be true thus far. That as a bus owner you have a certain happy-go-lucky way about you. You are friendly to others, especially other BUS owners. Most of those who we have found amongst our travels will go out of their way to stop and chat about busses with you. Share stories and advice and reminisce if they used to own one. Well, that wasn’t the case with the owner of this ’72 beauty we stopped to check out on our way to Hillsborough the other day.

It was located at a little book barn and we thought we would go in and poke around since it looked neat and we figured that the owner was the owner of the bus. And he was. However, when we tried to talk to him about it, he seemed kind of annoyed. I mean there was no one else in the store and yet he was very reluctant to make conversation with us. Then he went as far as to go off and pretty much hide out back somewhere until Brian and I left. Do we stink? What if we wanted to buy a book?

As soon as we went out I saw that he came back up to the front desk. Weird. I have never experienced this before. I hope this is a rare occurrence.

On another note, we made some necessary purchases recently for our bus. We have traded up from the ceramic heater to a bigger more powerful propane heater that seems to work much better for Brian. I just hope he doesn’t blow himself up. We also acquired a battery jump starter thing that comes with a air compressor for filling tires too. Should come in handy when there is no one around to help us jump start. And last but not least. We upgraded our AAA today so that we can get towed up to 100 miles!!  I guess we will be all set when May comes to take the Bus down to Virginia for Tim’s Graduation! 🙂
