“That’s a little extreme.”

Adventure Bus Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: Boomer, over the STRONG objection of Joey, was assigned as the team quartermaster, “But, I want to pull the trailer!”

“Okay, Joey,” Boomer laughed, “Be my guest.”

“Aw—dammit!” Joey replied, “I forgot to have a hitch installed.”



“Enough, you two!” Debra was ready to go, “Head ‘em up—MOVE ‘EM OUT!”

“So, Joey, what job did Debra assign you?”

“I don’t want to say.”

“Aw, c’mon.”

“I’m not saying.”

“It can’t be that bad,” Boomer laughed.

Debra overheard their conversation and shouted, “DISHWASHER!”



Season 15—Adventure 7—ADVENTURE BUS—Episode 2—Scene 1—A handy Campground… The Rootin’ Tootin’ Bike Club—with just enough time to set-up camp before dusk.

With amazingly little grousing by Boomer and Joey—they got through the evening meal, and the necessary clean-up.

“Well,” Debra smiled, ever-so-slightly, “You two have been cooperative—thus far. What’s up with that?”

“Too tired to grouse,” Joey replied, “Keep the wine and ale flowing.”

Just as Joey finished speaking, the unmistakable sound of two-cylinder motorcycle motors caused all to look towards the highway.

At least ten bikes flying the flag of the Jolly Rogers passed the entry.

“I wonder if they saw us?”

“If they did—they’ll be back, Debra,” Linda replied, “It’s time to get our guns.”

Episode 2—Scene 2—Smith’s Grille… “Hey guys—we just passed a campground. Might be a good place to stop for the night.”

“Naw, Hank,” Jeb replied, “There’s a bar down the road, and I have a powerful thirst!”

The others agreed.

They found the perfect place in Smith’s Grille. There they could satisfy their desire for beer & food. Next door was a dive motel—just perfect for these guys!

“So, guys,” Jeb questioned, “What are our orders for when we catch-up to them goody-two-shoes do-gooders?”

“Kill them.”

“That’s a little extreme.”

“You wanna get paid?”

“I worry that ‘payment’ might be a life-stretch in the crossbar hotel.”

“You worry too much, Jeb. Lighten-up.”

Episode 2—Scene 3—On the Desert Road… In theory—the Adventure Bus didn’t need to stop at a motel—having quarters for all aboard.

But, sometimes it’s desirable to have the more spacious quarters provided by almost any motel. By a vote without dissent—they decided to stop at the “Red Roof Motel,” and rent several cabins.

This may turn-out to be a big mistake.
