    Anyone ever travel coast to coast on one?

    I've done it a few times. The trip itself sucks badly for a lot of obvious reasons, but what the hell is up with the PEOPLE on greyhound routes?

    It's like this whole other world of disgusting ass people that only exist along greyhound routes and nowhere else. Like, you don't even see this kind of filth in your average inner city slum.

    Who else has experienced the wonders of the long greyhound trip?

    Yeah, there are definitely unpleasant odors involved. But that's not really the worst part though. There's this collective level of insanity and downright weirdness displayed by people that doesn't seem to be matched anywhere else in society.

    I remember the Kansas City station being the absolute weirdest one of all of them, and I've probably been to every major one south of the northern border states.

    Never done it, but I imagine the same sort of people tend to frequent Golden Corrals and Ryans.

    Ain't nothing compared to chinatown buses. I've shared a bus with a number of chickens, going from NYC to Boston.

    Not all of them.

    However, most of the bus stops are in the arm pit sections of most towns, and the people picked up are pretty much representative.
