The Chiefs Tailgating Bus
How in the world did we get to the end of December? My husband and I were just discussing how in the heck did we just celebrate Christmas and now we’re looking forward to the New Year… It is like time is totally flying by! And here in Missouri (as well as other parts of the country I hear) we’re having the worst flood we’ve had since 1993. Weather predictions call for another 1-2 inches of rain today. We’ve already had quite a bit. I didn’t/haven’t heard the total amount yet…
But anyway, I just wanted to share with you what we’ve been up to… It all started about 5 months ago. Actually, truth be told it started about 2 years ago. As I’ve mentioned, Dan and Grady are Red Coaters for the Kansas City Chiefs (by the way, did you hear they won against the Cleveland Browns yesterday 17 to 13… which means they’re in the Playoffs! Big year for Kansas City… The Royals and the Chiefs both making the Playoffs in one year!). At some point Dan and Grady started talking about buying a bus to turn into a Chiefs Tailgating bus.
Now jump forward to about 5 months ago. I wasn’t there to totally hear the story so we’ll let the hubs take over the story….
We were giving her [Deb] a hard time about wanting a Chiefs bus (which is a pretty common occurrence). She finally got tired of it and said, I’ll tell you what… You can get a Chiefs bus if…..
And hubby caught it on tape. Blackmail city… So the hunt was on to find a Chiefs bus. They searched Craig’s List and multiple auctions on Purplewave.com. So jump forward about 4ish to 5 months… and Karen and I were sitting at the dive shop one day chatting when all the sudden we heard the loudest screams you’ve ever heard. We wondered what the heck happened. Turns out, they bought a Chiefs Bus.
Details: It is a 2002 Ford E450, 16 passenger, OATS (Older Adult Transportation Services) Bus.
The bus will be converted to a Chiefs Tailgating Bus for Pre Seasons, Regular Season and maybe even post season games. On the off months, it will be the Scuba Diving transportation Bus. I plan on documenting this all the way… so stay tuned for more. We’ve already started!
