Bus in shop
« on: January 13, 2011, 09:28:47 AM »
Well, we are at Choo Choo today. Having some maintenence done today. New oil,filters,  rear brakes, misc. Great place to get work done. If you have never been by, or had work done at choo choo, you should really ck it out. They have a lot of know how on the old busses, and you cant beat their labor rate, good lacation too. Ken also met us here today to give us some help on our pro driver, and getting it hooked up, and a couple of other things. Many thanks to him for helping us out. It is some kind of cold and snowy and icy. It just isnt right for it to be this cold in Georgia. It snowed around a foot in La fayette, Ga. Next month, Florida, here we come,  ;D

I agree, Scott. I walked outside today, and thought a warm front went through ;D

Ruthi, I am glad that you all are making good progress. I hope things continue to go well.

God bless,

John

I know, we use to live in colorado, and it sometimes could be snowing, and really not feel cold at all. Difference is in the humidity. Wet goes with our cold here in Ga. and it seems even colder than it is. Thanks John, so far it is going well. Love the new bus.
