Also in 2016 I finally left the bus industry. I've been saying I would for years but this year I made it final- not that I may never return, burning bridges is never a good idea! I still retain the licence and my enthusiasm (which was draining rapidly) has started to return. Like any hobby, if you work it, sleep it and eat it it can be too much. The bus industry has changed dramatically over the last 18 years I was part of it - and not for the better.
Moving on to plans for next year, well, Paul T and myself have a plan sorted out of what to do and how we're going to do it. I've recently read back a few of my blog entries where I gush that this will be on the road next year or that will be ready for the summer and something always seems to come along and scupper my plans! All I'll say is "watch this space!"
All that is left to be said is to wish you all a very safe Christmas and happy New Year.
