I drove to Miami tonight so I wouldn’t have to fight with rush hour traffic when driving down from Stuart, FL. I’m parked in a vacant lot across the street from a friend’s condo.
I’m walking distance from the water and within 15 minutes of the convention center, which is where I’ll be heading first thing in the morning. The drive was a smooth one… I just had to constantly remind myself to stay in what felt like the left edge of the lane since that’s what’s necessary to keep the bus centered in the lane. FYI: A bus is much wider than a car, so the driver sites much more to the left of center when compared to a car.
What does the horn sound like when you honk it?
I’ve been reading your blog and can relate in many ways. I moved from Cleveland, Ohio to Key West, Florida after doing just what you did — selling everything to live on a 42′ sailboat. We love Key West and decided to stay. Now we’re back in the rat race just to afford our just-the-right-size house. Just got back from Photoshop World and welcome you to come down on your exploration of Florida. I will have to look into where you can park the motorcoach.
funny, I just got back from a week in Ireland with a lot of time spent traveling by coach. i was amazed at how the driver could handle that huge thing in teeny tiny lanes- definitely takes some talent! even in the back you feel lopsided, like you’re not centered in the lane when you really are.
The horn has two settings, one for an electric horn, which sounds a lot like a loud car horn and the other for the air horn, which sounds more like a semi-truck or train.
the balacne you mentioned for bus is great
God bless you.
