I’m not much of a writer. Sometimes I have something and I don’t know where to put it so it ends up here. I got a message asking me to review my experience with Alaska Bus Guy. My experience was funny so I’m sharing.
My 2-star Review of Alaska Bus Guy LLC
I will generously give the ABG 2 stars, because it was an interesting “Alaskan” experience for us and we have a story to tell, but it was a pretty rough ride, haha.
Alaska Bus Guy had a strong web presence, so in 2010 my wife contacted him and setup a ride from Denali to Anchorage. While we were waiting for ABG, we met another traveler also headed to Anchorage, and we hit it off talking. He was worried about his bus being so close to his plane flight that he thought he might miss it, so we told him our bus was a direct trip and he chose to ride with us instead. It’s a good think we didn’t meet any other new friends, because when ABG arrived late, he was driving a Saturn Vue. We all paid him cash and the 3 of us hopped in, completely filling the 3 passenger seats and having to hold our bags on our laps. About 10 minutes into the 2+ hour drive, just as our legs were falling asleep with our bags on them…we heard a loud bang and the car coasted to a stop. We were in the middle of the Alaskan wild and we had just suffered what our driver Ron told us was “a catastrophic engine failure”.
