Jacuzzi Bus 2007

Jacuzzi Bus 2007

Postby lapeer20m » Fri Aug 17, 2007 1:45 pm

Once again i'll have the bus and my 8 person hot tub on the playa. This is year number 4. Every year i get better at filtering water. The secret to sparkling clear water is 20 micron drinking water filters. That and having people shower BEFORE they get in.

here's a photo of the bus at a pre-burn party in 06

Found a source of water in gerlach so i don't have to transport water from 100 miles away. 600 gallons of water weighs a lot!



If i ever take this idea commercial i think i'll have to stop using the term jacuzzi as it is a registered trade mark.

it's almost 5K miles roundtrip to brc and back.

we'll be camped at 6 oclock and the E road for anyone who wants to come visit.

We're also planning to take the dreaded jungo road from winnemucca brc

Jaeger seems to be the drink of choice.

Hope to see you out there Jason.
It's going to be alright.

You rock Jason.

Once again: the moment you told me@Theatre Noir last year it's your bus (after my whole story about fuckin' bus with jacuzzi) was priceless :)

I hope to get on the bus at least once :)

WOW! Can't belive we leave in just a few days!

We're travelign light this year. Only hauling stuff that belongs to passengers with very few exceptions. Last year we had over 15K pounds of people and stuff. The motor ran at wide open throttle for about 110 hours from detroit to playa and back.

I turned up the hp on the engine. Now we're lighter, faster, and better than ever before.

I'm excited about jungo road too. I drove it last year in a chevy malibu in late july. Took me 3 hours to cruise nice and easy from winnemucca to empire.

Glad to hear you got the weight down. That'll help with the MPG as well as the transmission.

well, we made it in record time there and back. Took jungo road to the event this year. I'll definately do that in the future. Saved 110 miles, and countless hours.

JUNGO rules!
