Our new Bus Junkies bus Susie Q came to us in mysterious fashion when our friend Sak from Thailand picked her up in Arizona and brought her back into the limelight by sharing his travels and her adventures with us on Facebook. He traveled the Arizona deserts in her as well as the Southern California coasts and Northern California Mountains. He came to visit the Bus Junkies in Felton California a small mountain town near Santa Cruz and we bonded over our love of buses and this old Hi Top named Susie Q.
