    Well, at least you can get delivery just about anywhere, kinda.

    Looks like Pac-Man. Watch out for ghosts.

    +Sam Hetchler That made me laugh, which I needed. =) Thanks!
    +Jason ON – Yep. An $820 roadside repair is apparently what happens when the dealer inflates 10 year old tires to the rating on the sidewall, which happens to also be ~20-25 PSI higher than what Hausbus would use if it were loaded to the full GVWR of 18,000 pounds. On the bright side, now that the tires are set to a more reasonable 70PSI, Hausbus doesn't ride like a Conestoga Wagon anymore.
    Needless to say, when the dealer talks on and on about replacing tires that are more than 7 years old before delivering any coach to a customer (for safety and liability reasons), and it is discovered of a Friday Night that the tires are not, in fact, 2012 DOT codes all around, but are instead F) 2004, 2012,
    R) 2004, 2007, 2004, 2004

    …there's gonna be a Conversation happening Monday morning.
    +Mark Koenig – We were .7 miles away. Likely, we could have walked, even. =)
    +Richard Bartle – We did see ghosts, but fortunately had some extra power pills handy, so they were a'scared of us, instead of the other way 'round. =)
