Re: MutV On Playa Insurance

That's the concern, there really doesn't seem to be a way to have everything aboveboard. I don't understand how so many MVs are either pulling it off and saying nothing, or are just rolling lawsuit targets waiting for a screwup. Also I don't understand how there isn't help navigating the process for...

MV Insurance: Can't be Done?

Apparently after years of making DMV-mandated modifications we've managed to make our bus uninsurable, according to our broker who is accumulating quite a few rejections. Just about any modification not done by a professional coachbuilder will put you into this category. I emailed the DMV about it t...

Re: Is Cronyism really better than Capitalism?

You can buy a ticket for less than $650. That's hardly rich. For those on limited budgets, it just means organizing your life and being a little more useful to others so you can earn some extra cash.

Face value or fuck off. The seller should eat the charge for being "that guy" who purchased a ticket they don't need, helping cause the the "ticket fiasco." Just my opinion. Ideally yes, but a lot can happen in 6-7 months of someone's life, and trying to cover costs on their end...
