Journey to San Diego

Before Burning Man there was no clear direction for the Love Bus. However, on the last day at Black Rock City, Tina Nomad visited BoCoNoCo where the bus was camped. She is the team coordinator for parking at YOUtopia (San Diego’s regional burn) and offered everyone on the bus the opportunity to volunteer at the … Continue reading

Earthaven Ecovillage

7 July 2012. Trees and bushes brushed against the Love Bus as it approached Earthaven Ecovillage. Traveling along gravel roads, we arrived at a culdesac, where over a dozen hand painted mail boxes stood. It was hot and humid out and Joel, Brittney, and I had arrived just in time to meet our tour group. Nestled in … Continue reading

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

But really (Mom and Dad) we’re planning to secure it with straps that will be more durable. In the mean time the bus has been working … 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. It was even colder last night, in the mid-forties, and we were still toasty under our layer of blankets. … Continue reading

Where will the bus take us?

This is how excited I am about the bus project! I’m also practicing my skills for when we have dance parties on the bus after we install outdoor speakers and party lights(hopefully!). Another one of our plans is to go to the Rainbow Gathering on the East coast in July. For a quick info session on the … Continue reading
