Chains. Chain gang. Anchor chain. Neck chain. Rigging chain. Chain letter. Chain of command. Tire chains. A must for mountains, especially snowy icy conditions going up mountain passes. MauiSkiBus drove 13,000 miles on its quest to ski 100 different ski resorts and did not have to put chains on once. Sad, but true, so sad, as it meant a lean snow year. Will MauiSkiBus2 see chains? The last chain mentioned above is welcomed, so welcomed, before MauiSkiBus2 starts, chains will be put on for the first time, at the first resort, and a hommage will be given for a safe journey with a Hawaiian Ki leaf blessing. A blessing was not given by a CHP officer, as MauiSkiBus was driving on a clear road, up to ski resort #99. A ticket was issue for no chains on, a fine was levied, a contest this ticket was returned, another fine was sent by snail mail, “Where is your CHP picture eveidence?’ was sent back, a drop of charges was sent, and off to ski Sha na na sta saying Na Na na to the issuing CHP.
MauiSkiBus drives fine in moderate snow conditions with out chains due to a 6.6 liter turbo diesel, dual rear tires, six snow tires, and weighing over 5,000 pounds. Getting up some of the access roads to ski resorts can be more difficult that the roads leading to them and no serious problems have occurred. Ski resort #99 was different than the CHP agent 99, as welcome was servedby staff, ski patrol, local skiers, and the mother God of snow storms. It came down, a track was laid, it came down again, and the track dis-appeared. Na Na Na was sung all days, as legs played in deep white, and hot mocha MauiSkiBus coffee played inside. The actual name of this volcano is in the distance of this resort. Mt. Sha na na Sta will reveal itself by taking away storm clouds and the resort will reveal itself by taking away Na Na Na.
Mt. Shasta, CA. is run in a little way by a Big Jim, a smile that runs sideways, from slope to slope.
