Happy 42nd Birthday, Big Blue

A special post for a special day. Last year, I asked Monty - Big Blue's driver for 37 out of his 42 years, to send some old pictures (Here are some from last year). He was happy to. So here are a few of Monty's memories....

The bus (Pre BigBlu3 plates) stuck on the Eel river near Eureka. I used to
live in Arcata with the bus. We got towed out. - Monty

I got the next pictures from my first wife. Pat and I camped a ton in the
bus. - Monty


My haircut is schitso since in the "trimmed" pictures I was in the Air Force Reserves (circa 1970) and had to keep it trimmed. Anyway, these are the first known pictures of big blue and his happy owner. I don't have pictures of Pat and myself getting busted by Stanford University police for fornicating in the bus! My advise: keep the curtains drawn! - Monty

Great pix! Even greater that the privious only shared them with you. Hoping to get a ton of pix and trip info from my Aunt about my bus (my uncle passed a couple years ago, they're the original owners).
