I subscribed. I like his outlook on things and he knows what he's doing.

We enjoy watching his videos. The one the other day where the bus fell off the supports was crazy - and it happened TWICE! He's a lucky man.

Just ask him, I'm sure he'd come if people line up work for him since it's what he does for a living. I will say he fixes more neglected/trashed buses than he'd see at a Wanderlodge rally, but there would be plenty he could do.

He has a travel fee, maybe if people line up a few jobs for him the travel fee could be split among the people having work done by him. Or he’s pretty close to the Shipswana rally when he’s at his home base. Seems like a good guy he’d probably wouldn’t be adverse to giving a tech talk.

Well he has a very marketable skill set , his services seem to be in demand , he clearly knows these Detroit power plants and running gear inside out unlike some of the vendors cozied up to the club. Just sayin, I’d gladly pay a guy like him for his expertise and take very good care of him while he was workin for me. I think he’s the real deal and a working man that ain’t afraid to get dirty. Also genuinely seems to enjoy his work. It would be nice if “ Then Group could work out some sort of preferred status or discount. There certainly are enough coaches to keep him busy.
