We woke up this morning about an hour from Niagara Falls. The plan was to eat and blog there, but apparently - even though they serve breakfast - nothing is open at 8:00 in the morning. The timing was great though: as we left the park, coach tours started to pour in.
It took about 10 hours to get to Niagara from Milford CT. We didn't pass a single car on the road the whole time! Not that its the apocalypse, it's just that all the other drivers were passing us! Neil did great the whole way. He's very happy plowing down the roads at a whopping 60 miles an hours. Or at least that is what we thought: we drove passed a speed reader in Buffalo that claimed we were only going 55.
Still no complaints. Neil is happy with the speed limit and so are Sherm and I. Who wants to make this trek and not actually SEE the country? Certainly not us. We think Neil is happy about it too. When Neil was purchased from Colorado he was freighted to the east coast. He was not created to be left in someones back yard. He is a transporter, and that is exactly what he is doing- and well!
Neil Cassady. The Way Back Machine. Whatever you want to call him, he certainly is a Happy Bus. He is happy to be used for what he was intended. Sherm and I are happy we aren't squished in the GLI or the Wrangler. And every car that passes us on the road is filled with happy people after seeing the site of Neil packed to the brim plugging along the interstate. We even got respect from a trucker and a New York state trooper.
