Up-close look at a decked out Bills bus

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — An Orchard Park couple's RV started off as a mode of transportation, and now eight years later it's a way of bringing Bills fans together.

Before Rich and Lauren Foley lived in Orchard Park, they made the long trek every weekend from Long Island and New Jersey to see their Buffalo Bills play.

"It was just a lot cheaper to pay a hundred bucks for the weekend than pay a couple hundred bucks for the hotel," Rich said. "That's how it started."

He said the best part of having the tricked out RV is all the friends the couple makes with it.

"Every game we're talking to hundreds of fans both home and away," Rich said. "I love that, if I can get the first spot right against the guard rail and just talk to people, especially sports fans. That's the reason I did it."

The popping coats of red, white, and blue paint are adorned with small and large stickers. Painted numbers honor some of the greatest to ever wear a Bills jersey. There is still some empty space, however.

"Hopefully a Super Bowl sign's going right here," Rich said.

The Foley's are making the trip down to Pittsburgh Saturday afternoon, to see the Bills take on the Steelers, but they're driving in a car.

"I've been to Pittsburgh a couple times, I don't know how well this bus would do there," he said.
