This trek may best be summed up with unattributable quotes:

” I’ve never laughed this hard on a Wednesday”

“Lets take out some more seats & put in dance floor”

“Can’t remember laughing this much on a Thursday”

“It’s like a carnival ride”

“Babies and Scalpers and Martinis – OH MY!!!”

“Ballpark Tours Tattoos’ – Bruises”

“I have no idea where the blood came from”

“Is this heaven. No, it’s the back of the bus.”

Or maybe best by the words ringing from the Back of the Bus Singers.

“There’s something happening here.  What it is ain’t exactly clear.”
