Wow, what trust to put in those of us on the road early in the morning or late at night. Yeah, we are out in the early hours on roads all over the country. In fact, I’m usually the first one on many of the county and township roads of my route, all to often I’m there before the snow plow. I have to know those roads because I’m asked to drive them in fog, rain and snow. I’ve had many a trip where I have known where the stop signs and corners are by counting the hills. Those are not the days I prefer to drive.
Winter here in Southwestern Minnesota can be a challenge at times. Knowing where the road is in hazardous conditions is sometimes a challenge. The fact is though that I will never take a child out on a road in my bus if I do not feel confident that I can get back to town. That’s not to say that I have always stayed on the road, but usually if I get into trouble it is not because of a blizzard, it’s ice or fog.
So, thank you for your trust. We want your kids home safe as much as you do. Besides, do you really want to spend a cold night in a bus with your child and all of their friends? Neither do we!
