Tyler Dunham, Seth Brown, and Corey McLean will set out on July 10 on their converted school bus to visit communities across the country and document their travels via a web series.

To promote their upcoming cross-country road trip for charity, the guys from Love, the Bus appeared at the Boylston Apple Store June 17 to discuss their ideas and get feedback from an attentive crowd on the top floor of the three-story building.

Dunham, 24, one of the three members of Love, the Bus, all of whom are Maine natives, described the Apple Store event as “awesome,” and that he thought the crowd of about 30 people was a perfect number.

“We really are into having a conversation and it’s tough for us to go into a lecture hall and talk to an entire school. It’s not as interactive and it’s not as fun for us, and so this was a great opportunity to have a dialogue and a really supportive environment,” he said.

During their upcoming trip, the Love, the Bus team will be accepting various challenges from viewers and followers to raise money for different communities.

“Our goal with the whole series is to find and fund America’s worthiest local youth causes,” said Dunham. “Right now we’re basically running on fundraising that we’ve done individually, but we’re hoping that kind of putting ourselves out there more and more and doing more events and more challenges, we’ll gather a following to really have a tremendous impact by the end of the summer.”

While none of the challenges have been planned out yet, followers of Love, the Bus have already started sending in suggestions, like running a three legged race across Manhattan, surfing tanker waves in the Gulf of Mexico, or noodling for catfish in the bayous of Louisiana.

Dunham said that in addition to the more adventurous, funny challenges, some people have asked them to talk to local organizations. “In all likelihood, we’ll probably choose several throughout the week and we’ll do a combo of the more adventurous ones that’ll probably turn into our episodes because they’re a lot more creative or entertaining.”

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.
