The Maiden Voyage

After months of searching for the right bus to make into the Solar Bus, I finally found it. It was perfect. It had a diesel engine so I could run it on vegetable oil and biodiesel. It had the prefered air brakes and manual transmission. And the icing on the cake was - it's a Crown. I mean, just look at this bus. Isn't it beautiful?

The only problem was... the bus was 3,000 miles away from Vermont where I live! Since Crowns only exist on the West Coast, I had no choice but to fly out there and drive it back here. What a pity. :)

This slide show documents my trip to pick up the bus, with my trusty co-pilot Marko.

Use the navigation buttons to go forward, back, or start over. Enjoy!

Peace to all
