Big family buys team bus

PORT HURON, Mich.” A big brood needs a big bus ” a really big bus.

A 15-bed bus once used to transport the now-defunct Port Huron Flags minor league hockey team has been sold to an Arkansas couple with 17 children.

When the team folded in May, Fred Minnie posted an ad trying to sell the bus in an auto magazine. He was contacted by Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, whose 17th child Jennifer Danielle was born Aug. 2.

“There’s not too many of those buses with 15 beds in it,” Minnie said.

Minnie did not disclose the purchase price.

The family’s 7,000-square-foot home is in the northwest Arkansas town of Tontitown, and Jim Bob Duggar said the family hopes to travel to visit relatives in Ohio.

“We’ve done a limited amount of travel in it so far,” he said. “It will be something we’ll use hopefully in the years to come.”
