I always enjoy a visit to the lovely town of Skipton in North Yorkshire, and I enjoy it even more when they are having one of their annual bus events. On Sunday 14th of October 2018 it was all aboard the X43 Witch Way bus again for my third consecutive year, and as per usual this was a cracking event, and run by the good folks at the Aire Valley Transport Group (AVTG).

The one big change this year was the weather, and unlike in the past two years when it was mostly bright and sunny, it rained quite hard during the morning period, which of course I enjoyed very much, as this offered me an opportunity to get a few 'crap weather' shots. I was very happy with this, it was just a pity that it brightened up later, but the again at least it brought more visitors out. I had planned to do a lot more riding this year, but in the end I decided to just ride on the Mystery Tour on a lovely old 1949 Bristol bus, and wander around the town getting a few general shots of the place, and trying to catch some of the services in a few different places to previous years.

I'll no doubt be back again next year, but maybe I'll try the Saturday Running Day instead, then if I have sufficient energy left I can always go back again the following day if I feel up to it. My thanks to all the organisers, drivers and volunteers, your efforts were greatly appreciated.
