Everyone who has been in colorguard or marching band knows the struggle of those long bus rides. Sometimes some really great memories are made on those buses! Of course, there are also some not-so-good memories of these bus rides.
On the day of a long bus ride to a marching band competition, people are full of energy! They are excited to perform so everyone’s a little bit hyper. But people also may be on edge from an early morning of practicing or as it gets toward the end of the season. To get the best bus ride experience, make sure you’ve got these things covered!
These are all the physical items you should bring with you but something else to keep in mind is who your seat partner is. If it’s going to be the same person all season make sure it’s a person that you rarely get into fights with! In this case your best friend might not be the best option if you two are known for having little fights every once in awhile!
There will be many long bus rides during the season and you want to be as comfortable as possible and I hope that these tips helped!
