What’s Cooler than a VW Bus?

A GIANT VW bus… that lights up and has a dance floor on the roof.

I talked to the guy who is responsible for creating this beast and he was quite proud that they made it to Lake Havasu and cleared all the overpasses with mere inches to spare.

He started with some sort of old airport vehicle and stripped it down and reshaped it from the ground up.  There’s a small lounge on the bottom and a serious sound system throughout.  There’s a deck and dance floor on the top, of course.

He says it’s only rated for 50 mph, but he thinks it can do 70 mph.  Not that he would ever try.

    Awesome! That event looks really fun!
    I received an e-mail a few days ago through
    the bus owners group that you might be passing
    through our way on your trip. We live
    near LA, close to Magic Mountain. I wanted to contact you but there was a cold being passed
    around our house.
    Your trip looks amazing! We, (my wife and I and our 6 year old
    son) will definitly be following your progress online.

    I hope this message finds you all well, you can count on us for support if you need it.
    Stay safe,

    Dave, Angel and Christian

    My aunt in San Felipe has been alerted to your arrival. Her best friend Olivia is a teacher who would love to meet you and Bode and assist with his Spanish. Happy trails!

    If you happen to make it back up through the Bay Area on a Thursday, stop off in Santa Clara at the weekly BLTN meet. I’ll buy you all a coffee. http://www.bltnvw.com
