Winter Bus Driving in the morning

With all the talk about bad driving conditions I thought I would take my camera with me this morning and take a picture on my route. I don't have chains on and the road is solid ice. More fun when there is 6-12 inches of fresh snow on the ground. I will try to remember to take one in the daylight run. The road is narrow in places and not much room to pass. I do like driving the smaller bus. I used to drive a big 40 passenger one on the route. Course it got better traction being heavier. Mark H.

I am. Glad there are only a few cars on this road. I only drive it 20-35 mph on most of it. All the kids wear seat belts in the bus. So far so good in 7 years. I have my own kid on the bus so I am extra careful. Much safer for me to drive them to the stop than there parents who seem to go in the ditch all the time on this road. Mark H.

Did you consider using the N, and pulling a cart loaded with hay? Lots more traction and lots more fun. :-)

It would be fun but not on the snowy days. I do get plenty of seat time around here during the winter tho. Mark H.
