This was probably the scariest bus ride I've ever had in my entire life however, and I've taken many, many bus trips over the years. Bus #2 was driven by a totally incompetent driver who hit a light post, got stuck in the mud and almost couldn't get out again, hit a gas pump and almost knocked it off the foundation, and later, hit a car in a parking lot! We all had to wait for the police to come and fill out their reports. Becca, Philip and I were on the other bus, but just watching all this was scary enough. While I am pleased to know that one can hit a gas pump and not have it burst into flames (something I had always wondered), for the first time in my life, I found myself checking the emergency exits and trying to figure out how to get the windows open just in case. We were very thankful to make it home safely and it was plenty of adventure for one week!
