Round 2 - Age of Busnuts....not buses

As requested, here is round two. There are a lot of new faces on the board, and some of us have aged a tad ;D.

Thanks to Ed Brenner who started it the first time ;)

My daughter just turned old enough to drive, she has asked if she'll be allowed to drive the bus. Because we live fulltime on ours I wonder if she'll want to find her own or run as fast as she can for a 'regular' life.

Craig -

When I worked at transit, the BEST drivers were the women!

By all means, teach her to drive the coach - but only after she's got some miles under her belt in a car first. (I'm guessing you've got a toad?)

FWIW & HTH. . .

Craig,

I agree. Teach her how to drive. However, I would also be VERY careful about how/when you do. Start out really slow. Make sure that you train her very well.  I have seen families have wrecks, that put an inexperienced driver behind the bus wheel. Some of the wrecks I have seen look like they could have been prevented with a bit more training. Of course, not always, but I have wondered at times.

Take your time and train well.

Enjoy

John

Can't vote!!!!!

Since I'm 70, I tried to click both 60-70 which makes me seem younger and the more accurate 70-80 that makes me seem old.

The Survey should read either 61-70 and 71 to 80 so old guys with ages ending in a zero won't be confused.

Thanks for rectifying this problem.

ANYONE can vote. just walk in but bring an old phone book. They won't notice.

As for the choices offered in this poll, remember that 0 (zero) is nothing, so if it ends in zero, you can ignore it.

BTW, using words with "rect" in them, gives me a strange feeling.
For some, patience is a virtue.
Dealing with me, it is required.
