Disaster relief bus trip turned disaster.
« on: November 27, 2012, 08:33:26 AM »
Here is the video I promised you all if my son made one, he did and as they say here is the rest of the story.

Supplies to Long Island NJ after huricane sandy.

I have no idea why youtube is putting this video in twice, no matter what I do it keeps doubling it.

I'm sure you are very proud of him and you should be.  We got hauled from Syracuse to Vineland, NJ five years ago by a big red wrecker so I looked carefully to see if you had the same one.  I don't think you did but I'm sure it is just as sickening an experience no matter what wrecker you are hanging off the back of.

Mike,
Can you give us a direct link to youtube on this video?  I am unable to open either of the video's posted on this post. Thanks ahead of time, I hope everyone appreciated all he done to get these supplies to them and I am saying this before seeing the video's as I am sure of his intentions were straight from the heart.

Michael, Thanks for the "clue" on how to see this great video. 

OMG, :o you have to be proud of your son and I would say his wife but not sure but for sure you guys are great for what you all did. I sure hope you have only a minor issue with your coach.  Play the lottery this week end, you may be rewarded like you can't believe and you deserve it if you do.  Thanks for sharing your trip with us.

Thanks everyone for all your kind words ;D  Yes I am very proud of my son, he has a huge heart and will do just about anything for someone in need and never asks for any credit.  The young woman in the video is not my daughter in law, but I sure could do a lot worse.
