LINCOLNVILLE, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — Three Lincolnville natives have started a cross-country road trip to share stories of young people in the U.S. making a difference.
Lincolnville Beach was where “Love, the Bus” began its cross-country journey, which started with a short dip in the ocean for the bus itself. The bus was purchased by Seth Brown, Tyler Dunham and Corey McLean all of whom are from Lincolnville.
The three men say they couldn’t figure out what to do with their lives after college. The project they came up with will take them across the country in “Love, the Bus” as they document stories of young people getting involved in their communities.
The guys built the bus to run every bit as green as it looks right down to its engine that runs on vegetable oil.
“We really want to bring some positive stories,” said Dunham, who majored in Environmental Studies at Connecticut College, “some great things going on around the country and just share on a daily basis what’s out there.”
“What really the mission’s about is you know what kind of good is being done out there and what kind of good three guys in a bus can do,” said Seth Brown, who studied Film Production at Emerson College in Massachusetts, “so we’ll figure it out.”
The group plans to finish its trip in Los Angeles, California this October. Brown, Dunham and McLean have also created a website so people can follow their progress and offer suggestions for where the bus will go next.
