Arden, Delaware

We arrive in Arden dreary and ready to sleep, the neighborhood having been recommended to us by our friend Danielle as a place we could park our bus without getting too much flac from the neighbors. Unbeknownst to us, we had arrived in the oldest intentional community in the US. As Joey began to putter … Continue reading

Rainbow Gathering 2012

May 27, Joel drove through the night and into Boulder, Colorodo. There the Love Bus met with friends whom allowed us to use their showers and fill the bus with drinking water.

SOAK at Prindel Creek was a great success. The bus arrived late in the afternoon after it had to replace a battery that was accidentally drilled into. That afternoon at the Lollipops and Bodyshots camp people fell right into place among good friends and other Burners. There was an enormous spirit of hospitality and openness … Continue reading

Hands down … Continue reading

Night Two

Important update! I successfully closed the bus door on only my second try this morning. Woot! Someday soon I will be giving the lessons and making it look easy. We spent our second night on the bus.

First Night on the Bus
