... was a bus & a pretty neat one at that. When Tanya came here in 2009 to be their nanny she landed at Vancouver, Phil had just purchased the bus in Seattle & was driving it home with a mate so picked Tanya up from the airport & they drove home to Valdez in it. From memory at the time Tanya said that it took them 5 days of driving 15 hours a day to get from Vancouver to Valdez & Tanya was amazed then at how big everything was & how they drove for ...
