Now all they need to do is paint "Further" on the destination sign on the front.

I mean, it's all very impressive, but it's as if the reporter (is that you, Rodge?) has never heard of the Merry Pranksters, or has never been to a hippie festival like the Oregon Country Faire or the Rainbow Gathering where buses like this (and even more awesome ones, and housetrucks with cedar shake cabins built on them) abound.

Don't harsh my mellow, man. :)

Yeah, but you have to put on a white-duck Safety Patrol belt to open the door (my favorite job as a kid).
Not sayin' that's a disadvantage.
Then, every few miles you can pull over and yell "Siiit dowwwn an' shuuut uuuuup!" to nobody in particular.
If I recall, the harsh ride would definitely preclude takin' old red wines along.

Ron in Ohio Sez:

When I was a mere lad of 11 or 12 (Back in the 50's) My step-dad acquired a Ford bus from a retired plumbing contractor in Miami. The bus had extra height, military-stye model for 6-footers+ to be able to walk without ducking their heads, it had always been used for camping with very crude cots and a table and 'frige and stove all fastened to the floor.

My step-dad gutted it and over the period of a few months he converted it to a very nice, comfortable camper. We had it for over 6 years, taking many trips in it from Florida to Indiana and Ohio to visit relatives.

I wish he were alive to see these pics. He certainly would enjoy them. As it is, these pics certainly bring back happy memories for me. I still have som pics of his creation, somewhere.
