Been away for a while, just got word from Skindaddio... Good bus gone, good man goes on. It would be more sad if the bus hadn't already lived a much richer life than many.

It's been a long time... I saw a post on another website linking me back here... I didn't know what I would find... I'm sad to see what happened to your bus, but glad you are okay. I'm working on getting my bus back on the road again as we speak...

It is hard to let go of something you shared so many memories in... especially of your magnitude. There is a man in OshKosh that would probably fix that bus and keep driving it just because he always had... but I am sure your bus will live on... just in another shell... I'll even help you with the dots if you wish!

I just received word about the accident. I was saddened to hear about this unfortunate event. I hope you are recovering well.

Since others were sharing their memories, I decided to dig through my pics and post this from Colin's visit to St. Louis in 2005.

I am doing well. The bus and I are still running strong.

My AFM crapped out on me about a year ago, but other than that, the bus has been great. Still using the knowledge from your visit.

If you are still planning on being in STL in early october, I might swing by where ever you are stopping. Heck, I may know the guys you are visiting.
