My Man Slag writes:Dan, sounds like a great idea. The only problem is I don't think anybody here would want to be the designated driver and we'd just sit there and booze up.
We need Ed Getka to go along. Not just because he doesn't drink, but also because he's a great guy to have along for the road trip.I could go down to Springfield and pick up the "Further" bus from the Ken Kesey estate.
How much trouble you think it would be to hook a satellite dish and big screen TV to it? I think my ideas of luxury have changed a lot since way back when.Neil Cassidy could drive then. Long live the Pranksters!
Neil Cassidy might be difficult to get, but maybe we could get his bus drivin' cousin, David.Have you ever read "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test" by Tom Wolfe?
Just recently re-read it. It's gotten more dated than some of the other books of that era.
RJ Daley writes:Dan, do they still have those busses that run to Baja that are painted like watermelons and daisy prints and such? In that case, I'd consider flying to Nor Cal just to get on the bus, gus.
I'll need to look into that, but just like Further, the problem might be in getting the dish to work.
Might have been born to be wild, but I'm leaning toward not exploding into space.
You just slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don't need to be coy, Roy
Just get yourself free
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free
