I got an opportunity to crawl all over it a year and a half ago while it was in Balto on a fundraising tour. Maybe I should post my pics under "Short Bus Conversions". - Dan

I know what it is and that one is a replica I believe. I thought the original was in a forest in Oregon.

I'll post my pics; one of them is of the explanation posted in the window. Yes, it's the second one made. Yes, the second one is the one with all the history to it. They both were in the woods on Kesey's farm for a long time; this one was pulled and cleaned up and made to run so that it could do the fundraising for the future Ken Kesey Museum.

This is from Mark Kesey, Ken's son, via conversation and my imperfect memory.

Why not just put your land up on AirBNB or some such site? I don't see a need to create a new network, unless it's to exclude non-skoolies.

New Mexico (near the Colorado border), West Texas high desert around Terlingua/Big Bend and Oregon. All have "undeveloped" land on the cheap that could be grat for self sufficient rv/skoolies. And if we individually bought some land...maybe we could form a network to share it at super cheap day rates with our Skoolie friends to offset the $25 to $100 buck annual taxes such land requires.

Just a thought.
I'm from near by. Avoid those Terlingua lots. Lots of bad stuff going on over there, there's a reason some people are selling land for $100/acre.

I just google the map. You'd have to be a complete idiot to buy something within 100 miles of the border.

True, DHS & Boarder Patrol has proclaimed & if I remember correctly the Supreme Court upheld that they do not need to have a warrent to search any home or property within 100 miles of any boarder.

Some of the check points are many dozens of miles from the border and they can search you. I don't have anything to hide but I don't want to go through that every time I travel somewhere.

Nicely done, great paint job. I also like the way the church bell tower looks like it is coming out of the top of your bus.
