A Recap

So we've had three trips on the bus so far. It's been to the ESPI's, Douthat State Park, and Falling Creek Park. As you can see, it's mainly a bike wagon. There will be a few tubing trips thrown in the mix once in a while, but mountain biking trips are the shit - I doubt anyone would disagree.

Currently the bus is running on diesel, but I hope to finish the vegetable oil system by next week. The paint should also be done by this weekend, which also means that the title of this blog will get a facelift.

What is S.W.E.E.T.?

It stands for the Schoolbus for Wandering Exploration of Everything Tight! Basically what it comes down to is this: I wrecked my Jeep (not my fault), got the money from that, bought a '94 E-350 Schoolbus, and decked it out to make the ultimate road-trip vehicle. It will probably remain a "work-in-progress" indefinitely, but the main objectives are for it to run on vegetable oil, fit at least 8 people [with gear], and look completely ridiculous with a graffiti paint scheme.
