MontanaMatt: So we are in Royal Oak Michigan ( outside of Detroit) for the next couple of days. I dropped off everybody at the hotel.... and really needed to get this bus washed. There's a bus wash 5 mi from the hotel.... and of course they're closed for the holiday. So now I'm in Ann Arbor. Only a 100 mile round trip from the hotel. Oh well. Not my credit card paying for the fuel in this bus.
And for some stupid reason I expected this place to be slow today and I could get in and out fast. Not so much. I've been here for 45 minutes already and there's two more trucks ahead of me in line. And this happens to be one of the few Blue Beacons in the country that only has one drive-thru lane. Most have at least two so they can be washing two vehicles at the same time. Oh well. I've only been going since 10:30 last night. Who needs sleep? Evidently not this guy! 👋
MontanaMatt in reply to BugHug: Not quite as planned.... but I get to go to bed in another hour. On my trip back to Royal Oak of course the exit I needed was closed.... and that added another 18 miles to my trip. I kind of have to follow the GPS because this bus is a little over 13 ft tall.... and if I just wing it I will damn sure run into a low bridge. So right now we're at 16 hours on this shift. And yes.... I am beat like the proverbial rented mule. 🥴
