bus adventure
« on: January 28, 2007, 09:32:10 PM »
in case you guys don't belong to the other popular bus board.

there is a group of guys from TX who have bought a converted TDM4515 in Wash and are planning on driving it home...basically sight unseen....

maybe we should get a pool going on how far they get.

They said they are leaving in May. May in the Cascades can be kinda miserable if I remeber right. Been a few years since I was there.
I would bet the under on 1500 miles, if there is anything to this. ;D

They can make it . . . maybe. . . just depends on what kind of luck they have.

A friend drove a 4501 out of the desert with almost no water in the 8V71 (if added it would blow it right out). He drove it ~45 minutes before he got it stuck in a ravine & was forced to call a wrecker. The ole girl was still running when she got stuck.
BTW, this one was already converted to motorhome & will be remodled & put back on the road. . . eventually.

I questioned his judgement before he tried to drive it out of there. He is a great guy who is doing lots to save these ole scenicruisers.

His version of events that day will have you in stitches, Bo & Luke Duke ain't got nutthin on him!

Well the boys from Texas had a change in plans, so I bought the TDM 4515. I live in Renton Washington so I did not have too long of a trip. She ran fine 60-65mph all the way home, about 185 miles. I think she might have made it to Texas....
