Busy Days – 2129hrs

Posted by admin on Jun 27, 2009 in Bus / Coach

Been a busy couple of days..  Got back Wednesday from DC… had a “quick” run to Camp Laurel – South in Poland on Thursday… except N38 died on me in the middle of taking a corner (Egypt Road in Raymond)… with 28 8 – 10 year olds!  NOT a fun time… the other bus came back and picked up the kids while I waited for the mechanic to show up and diagnose the problem.  Long story short… mechanic shows up.. manages to fire the old girl up, checks the fluids, and tells me to drive her home and let him know if I have any more problems.  Well, made back to the garage JUST at the original scheduled time so it all worked out and no further problems!  One of those days I guess!

Friday was an easy double run from Portland Jetport to Tripp Lake in Poland using the mini-bus… no problems there.

Today was another “easy” run… got use the really nice 803 MCI bus… I was part of a four-bus pickup on the tarmac (yes ON the taxi-way) of kids going to Camp Laurel – North in Mt. Vernon… nice comfy run in that newer bus!

Right now I’m not scheduled for anything this week.. and have requested the 3rd, 4th, and 5th off as my sweetie and I are diappearing off the face of the earth for a much needed R&R!

That’s it for now….

That was JUST a couple HOURS worth of trash… EVERY time we stopped, the kids would bag up all the trash on the bus…usually three or four medium-sized kitchen trash bags worth!

To get your dog to shit, whack him with a hockey stick?

Anyways… I have a camp run to do this afternoon… picking up at Portland Jetport taking them to Casco… nice easy run… have the type of run (Camp Run) tomorrow… two of them actually… back to back.

No rest for the road weary I guess!
