    Go to cbs8.com on the top right there is a news ticker, watch the story entitled,"New plan to stop drunk drivers"

    That's me and my business, just wanted to share with someone. Sorry I didn't mention the site, couldn't really find a way it would pertain to the story.

    Kick *** idea. Shoot for the moon with it and you'll make some big bucks. Maybe make "bus two" (when it comes) go just between Downtown and PB. It would open a world of business from both areas, and wouldn't limit you to SDSU students.

    And good for you keeping the drunks off the road. I hope it goes huge for you.

    Another idea is to get a 40' motorhome fully stocked to shuttle Chargers players for a night out on the town. :tup:

    I bet the Chargers players would use that over a LIMO.

    Using slogans like "Don't get Mansker'd or Foley'd" so call us before you lose your career.........Special trip for the players to meet the fans etc etc etc .....

    Expect to be a very busy man.

    I will make you a deal so heads up.

    If you want to get a banner made up for your company and you want some more free advertising, I would be willing to hang it up at our tailgater for the Chargers Home Opener. It is almost guaranteed to get on multiple TV outlets if you play your cards right and get me playing the horn around your banner. :tup:

    If you have business cards or flyers, bring them and hand them out as well.

    That is my small way of saying thanks for giving something back to the community. :tup: :icon_toast:

    The offer is open until gameday so no worries.

    Good luck !!!!!

    Turbo...there are panels along the inside of the bus that I will be selling to bars/restaurants/whoever pays...anything that is not occupied will be donated to friends/family/non-profit until it is requested for purchase...

    In short yes, what would you like to advertise?

    And thanks Trumpet I'll let you know about that proposal, sounds great

    You know this would be a good Thumper project. :yes:

    If Z-BUS has a website and wants a link placed here in exchange for a sign or logo in/on the bus promoting Bolttalk.com and the Podcasts/Forums could work in each ones favor. I scratch your back and you scratch mine.

    I am throwing stuff out there for consideration for both parties now that my management hat is on so heads up.

    Hey, great idea .. I wish you a lot of luck!

    Curious thought .. Have you thought about expanding it to include other colleges like USD or UCSD?

    Props to you and your Z-Bus :tup: I'm impressed. I've been mowed over by drunk drivers not once, but twice...good luck! Maybe you could slip a Chargers bolt sticker on the back of that baby...:bolt:

    Yeah great idea SD_local. When you kick off the business let us know, and we'll mention the service on the podcast.

    Great Idea!

    BTW - It's very scary to hear the student say "everyone's getting them" as if a DUI was a tattoo or an iPod. :frightened:
