I grew up much the same way, even though it sounds like I'm a little younger than some of you. My grandparents had most of the raising of us grandkids, and they grew up in the Depression. They still lived much like they did growing up, only with a TV so Papa could yell at the evening news.
We butchered, had big gardens, canned produce and fruit, cooked from scratch, went camping a lot. I bless that experience, because the result is that I'm one of the few in my generation who isn't a useless idiot fit only to program their iPod.
This bus is our way of checking out of modern life. It holds nothing for us; indeed, I believe it was never designed to be a game the common man could win. Like that old movie, the only way to win is to refuse to play.
Would you like to play a game, Professor? No. I think I'll just go remodel a bus.
