DC Bound, Again 1433hrs

Posted by admin on Apr 14, 2010 in Bus / Coach, Where Am I? |

Been a busy weekend… wasn’t sure whether I was coming or going…mostly because I was in-between all the time!

Let’s see… last Thursday’s run… oh yeah… Lewiston High School colleges run… was part of a massive 17 bus pick-up… each one of us with a different set of colleges to take the kids to.  I had University of Maine – Augusta and Husson College.  Pretty straight-forward run… the only thing of note; Husson College must have the highest student smoking rate of any place I’ve ever been to!  It seemed like every third or fourth student walking around there had a butt in their hand or face.  Way to go Husson for creating the next generation of society out-casts!  We’re an endangered species, a dying breed for sure!  And DON’T even get me started about it being a FEDERALLY LEGAL PRODUCT…

Friday / Saturday’s run was taking Bates men’s Lacrosse to Connecticut College… decent enough hotel… however thought it was funny as hell they put me in the handicap room!  Not sure if they were trying to tell me something…think it was just coincidence!

More pics after the jump

Let’s see…that puts us up to when… oh yeah Sunday / Monday’s overnight to Boston…  Picked up the group of Brits at Indian Head Resort in Lincoln, NH… drove them down to the Midtown Hotel in Boston… that same shitty, crappy, chinsey, cheesy hotel I’ve stayed at before.  No shopping en route which was nice, we got there around Noon and I was able to take a nice couple hour nap before they needed to be carted over to the Hard Rock Cafe for 1900hrs.

Monday the schedule said nothing planned, however they wanted to go to this place…Cambridge Mall thinking it was a true “mall” and not he strip-mall I was told it was.  Convinced them they would be better served going to Quincy Market… so what did they decide?  Bowling!  Come all the way to America to ski for a week and sightsee and they decide to go Bowling!  Oh well… @ $50.00 an hour wait-time they can do whatever the hell they want…so off we went!

THEN they decided Quincy Market would be a good idea…dropped them off around 1300hrs… picked up around 1730hrs… quick slide over to Logan… kicked their ass to the curb… threw out their shit and headed north in a hurry!  Ended up making a pretty decent tip out of it too!  Which was funny because we never really “clicked” the whole trip…but oh well.

Tonight I’m meeting the starter-driver in Amesbury, MA for an overnight drive to DC.  usual monument drop-off in the morning then off to the hotel for some down-time.  This trip is a bit different in that they’re staying in Virginia (Dulles Marriott) and have several stops (dinner and some concert they’re doing at George Mason University) in Virginia in addition to the usual tourista stops.

More later…
