Thanks, lammius! Well, the Sri Lankans can sure show the Koreans a thing or two about increasing passenger load!

I rode from Central Florida to South Dakota. That trip was almost 3 days, not pleasant. I will NEVER do that again.

I know my daughter (younger than a father) did take Greyhound from D.C. to San Francisco. She thought it was a good experience, and if your Dad wants to come from OK to you, I would support his choice. I drove from OK to PA recently and would have made it in record time if I hadn't stopped many times along the way. And, frankly, I wish someone else had been driving! :D

Never thought you weren't supportive. I was just sharing a different POV.

When my sister first moved to Texas in 1964, my mom and I used to take the Greyhound from California to visit her and her family. We did that several times before we "took to the air." I was a teen, but remembering way back when, it was kind of fun. I was so excited anyway that I was going to see my little nephews, it really didn't matter. It would take anywhere from 25 to 30+ hours. I remember a layover in El Paso that was lengthy.

Anyway, I doubt I'd do it again at my age for that many hours, but 12 hours would be a breeze. In this day and age though, I would worry about too many strange people boarding the bus. In the 60s, we never worried.
