"when's the bus leave"

ok some back ground, we live almost on top of the border between Oregon and Washington, and about 180 miles give or take from Seattle. Soooooo I was in the gas station near our house filling up today. This very well dressed older lady (some where between 50 and 70) walks up to me and asks, pointing at our black interstate " .... is this the luxury bus to Seattle?" I almost said " yes , that will be $200.00"

Hi, that sounds about right. From Long Beach to LAX, the airport shuttle costs about $35.00 and the airport shuttle from Salem to PDX wants $100.00 or more. I took a taxi to the Radisson Hotel for $30.00 and a Mini-van from there to PDX for another $33.00 and save a few dollars, but spent a lot more time.

In Louisiana, we don't have RV license plates. We have "Private Bus" plates, same as vanpool and rideshare vans. But surprisingly, no one has ever mistaken my Interstate for a bus or limo. Maybe because it's white?

Makes sense that she may have mistaken your AI for a tour bus.

The shuttle at The Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas is black and the Lexani Sprinter conversion I saw carrying a hip hop artist and posse in McAllen Texas was also black.

Could have been an opportunity missed

I was driving our silver Interstate at a Metro rail station in Washington DC area, picking up my wife, and a group walked up to me thinking I was their hotel shuttle bus.

Could be worse, we have a local funeral home here that uses the black Sprinters for funeral limousines. Around here you might get asked for a ride to the cemetery

Noticed lots of black Sprinter wine tour van conversions in the Napa Valley last week. Our new AS logo front and back distinguished us from the for-hires. RV park patron asked if I was a "record producer." I just nodded.

Wonder if he meant someone that puts out records in the music industry or someone that just had a bumper crop of grapes.

Good catch! Funny. Got a feeling the guy meant music business. Black on black..says rock star, I thought.
