Good News from our disaster bus trip!!
« on: December 03, 2012, 07:37:01 AM »
If you have been fallowing our "disaster relief bus trip turned disaster" than you remember that my son Nick and his girl friend working with our local Rotary Club stuffed a bus for the victims of Sandy.  He lost oil pressure in Kingston NY. and had to finish the trip with rented u hauls.  I was worried about the cost of towing that bus back home to Vermont, which was over two thousand dollars, but AAA reimbursed me the total cost of the towing!  YA OOH ;D

We haven't had tho opportunity to drop the pan and take a look yet, to many other obligations at this time, but I will be sure to let everyone know once we know.

Wow, Mike that's amazing.  Kudos to whoever signed the reimbursement approval on that one.

Happy for you guys Mike, You see there is a God if you believe.  Maybe you didn't win the lottery like I wished you had but this has had to make your days brighter and it is very good news to all us busnuts that this happened.

Thanks guys.  Well, we may have not won the official state lottery, but I sure feel like we hit the jack pot!  I don't just believe in God, I know one exists because there have been two many instances like this in my life, it sure is nice when karma works in the positive.

Glad things are going well. I know too, because too many things happen that 'just don't'.

Thank you for all the support you gave.
For some, patience is a virtue.
Dealing with me, it is required.
Thank God - He is always patient.
