It’s official, I just need the cap

Okay, I’ve said it long enough. It was time to put up or shut up. So I DROVE THE BUS! 

The conditions weren’t ideal, with no shoulder to speak of, in New Mexico, but there wasn’t much traffic and I figured it’s now or never. So I told LeRoy I thought I was ready to drive. I didn’t drive far, probably 10 miles or less, but it really wasn’t so bad. Okay, a little tense at first and I muttered a lot under my breath (and out loud, too), but I met cars and trucks, went up and down hills and survived! So this morning after we got into Texas, the conditions were a little more favorable (wider shoulders, straight and mostly level roads) and I offered to drive again. This time, believe it or not, I even lifted a hand to wave at passing RVers! I drove about 30 miles or so, but we were approaching Dalhart and I wasn’t quite prepared to take on driving in town yet so I turned the wheel over to the more competent LeRoy.

Not that I’ll plan on taking on long range driving duties any time soon, you understand, but I have put my money where my mouth was…and I can call myself a bus driver!

About 2010liberty

Retirement agrees with us! After traveling in our 40' Silver Eagle bus conversion, whose name was Liberty, since 2010, it was time for a change. Now we spend the winter in Yuma, AZ and travel during the spring, summer and fall setting the Pace!

    Good for You! I’m glad to see you get behind the wheel, even though it’s a real stretch for reach huh! I’m sure LeRoy will get you the hat, once you go through a trip pre-check!

    Thanks, Paul! Once we get nice seats like yours it will be much easier to reach.
