Coaches For The Coach - A Tribute To John Madden
« on: November 27, 2023, 05:16:33 AM »

Originally published by National Bus Trader in their February, 2022 issue, John Madden chose bus travel over air travel as he liked the room, comfort, and safety only a bus conversion could provide.  Read about the many different coaches John has traveled in.

John Madden bought Sonja and I lunch at Chuy's in Van Horn Tx once, we were stopped, and he came in asking who owned the Eagle bus parked outside nice guy he was a big guy that loved tamales. Sonja told him all about her dislike for Mexican food and was there because I liked it 8) .FWIW the food wasn't that good I never stopped there again

We were at Chuy's in Van Horn Tx once too. We stayed at the empty lot across the street where there were three other rv's parked and stayed overnight there for free. Went to the restaurant and saw that John's bus model was on a table with other stuff about him and how he always stopped there to have food.
  I remember the Mexican food was good there and not the usual Tex-Mex like some places have there. We only went there once but would again if we were there again. :^

I am Tex Mex fan I don't care much for Sonora type Mexican food ,lol people in the west are pansies. We spend the night sometimes in the little park down a block on the same side as Chuy's or at the grocery store across from the Dollar store . We seen Maddens bus several times at Coopers BBQ in Llano Tx on highway 16, he liked the open pit BBQ in Texas so do I

Not, I love hot stuff the hotter the better I just don't like the tex mex taste or the Black beans they put in everything yuck.

I love California Mexican and that is hot too, lol :)
