A Long Trip Delivering School Buses

I know very few people have heard of these
Tiny little Western Towns. . 
They truly sit in the middle of "Nowhere"
But it is "Somewhere" to a few
Sweet wonderful families.
Wendover and Ibapah, sit on the Utah side of the 
Nevada/Utah border
And let me tell you that is 
It is the edge part of the 
Great Salt Lake Desert!
There are children that live there.. . .and children need to
Be Educated.
Tooele County School District has the privilege of
Providing that education and transporting them to the school.
 We started out with 6 school buses going to
Wendover and Ibapah Utah
Oh, by the way. . I am NOT a school bus driver
I am the Transportation Secretary.
I was the relief driver to bring the bus drivers back home.
Yes, this is Tooele County School District
Our district covers a Huge area.  
All the way to the Nevada boarder. . 
Lots of lonely miles between destinations.
 The picture below is part of the Great Salt Lake Salt Flats
You may have heard of the Salt Flats. . 
They race cars on these flats
The day we were there they (drivers) were trying to
Break the sound barrier. . .
 Some "artistic" person decided there needed to be a 
Tree. . A Tree Grows in "Nowhere"!
First 4 buses went to Wendover. . 
If you want to know more about Wendover, Utah
Check out Google and Google Map
Very interesting place.
More lonely miles. . 
 And we were at the little school of Ibapah, Utah
One last bus was left there
Only 5 buses made the trip. . 
One had to go back to the Bus Garage.
Only the safest and most dependable can be in this remote place.

I have such a deep appreciation for 
School Buses, and their Drivers.
All over the United States
School age children are transported to schools.
There are many remote parts of the country that these buses
Must travel to bring the precious cargo safely to school
Education of a child not only involves. . Teachers, 
School books, Buildings, and a variety of other essentials.
It also involves Transportation. . . 
The Little Yellow School Bus
And its dedicated Drivers. . .
Have a tremendous responsibility.
Come back and I will show you what I found in Ibapah!
Ah, you will be interested!
