Love that Bus

Three young Lincolnville men plan to set out in July in a retrofitted school bus to travel across country and document what they see and who they meet. Along the way, the boys on Love, the Bus will be raising money for good works and donating both time and money to community efforts – particularly those that involve youth.

But this is a road trip in the interactive digital age, so www.lovethebus.tv will be posting daily video updates to YouTube, tweeting on Twitter, and getting input from viewers on where Love, the Bus should go and who the team should meet.

“Our viewers are going to control our route to some extent,” said Seth Brown, 23. Brown and his two life-long friends, Tyler Dunham, 24, and Corey McLean, 23, bought the recently retired school bus in January and conducted a fund-raising campaign to retrofit it for travel. The bus, which sleeps six, has a galley/salon, bathroom, video workstation, rooftop deck and back porch. The retrofit was done by the team.

How about their parallel parking skills?

“This is the biggest city we’ve driven it to, yet,” said Dunham, referring to Rockland, where the bus was parked in The Free Press parking lot on North Main Street.

“We had to drive around the block a couple of times to figure out where we could park,” he said.

Help Fund An Adventure For Good

Well folks, we are on the road! Thanks to over 200 individual and business supporters we have a beautiful bus, some functional production equipment, and enough money to get across the country on ramen, waste vegetable oil, and home-cooked meals whenever they present themselves. We can not appreciate those contributors enough: thanks to everyone who has given so far we are on the adventure of a lifetime and spreading optimism across the nation. We desperately need money for emergency situations (our bus has already broken down once), to contribute to causes across the country (we have a little...we would like a lot), and to make our trip that much healthier (greens are expensive). So check out the site, and contribute if you would like to support three young men on an Adventure for Good.
