I mentioned the bus...

The LTP thread on Aus Bus Traveller's Facebook page - I noted "That's a lot of bus trips from Tom Price!"

I think that I got away with it.

I've been on FT for nearly 15 years and the "Bus" was just before my time.

I believe the member in question is still active on FT.

I seem to recall, perhaps badly, that the bus was more actively discussed in that other place...

I have learned of the bus here from the time before I actually joined as a member.

The best thing about the bus was that it was running during the post-9/11 double SCs and double points promo.

20 SCs and 2,000 points for $18.

THIS IS THE BEST DEAL IN THE HISTORY OF TRADE DEALS!

I still remember the bus The OP in Q (kawoh) left OZ permanently for the UK I believe he is / was a lawyer. Qf actually blocked his QF account when they found out what he was doing. He may have even reached Plat status by (not) doing bus trips between Tom Price and Paraburdoo.
