Bus Trouble

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 19 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

We were about 20 minutes out of Golden when Rob, director of the ORC and our trip leader, noticed the “Check Engine” light illuminated on the ‘Digger Bus. Being cautious, Rob called the school, and then the Ford service number, and then a taxi van, and finally a tow truck. We went back to Golden, I grabbed a bite to eat with some of the other people going on the trip and then we headed over to the Coors Lab where I was identified as being over 21 and given the appropriate wrist band to get free alcohol. I actually didn’t know I wasn’t supposed to have it until one of the guys on our trip told me I wasn’t. Rather ironic that someone from Coors gave me the wrist band too. Despite the minor over sight, no alcohol was consumed on my part. Hopefully we’ll be leaving soon.
