  1. JoAnna,

    Thanks for featuring the Roads Scholarship on your excellent blog. You have a rare combination of creativity, spirit and organizational skill. No wonder I chose you out of over 100 Roads Scholarship proposals. We have a real dream team for this summer and it’s is going to be an amazing and magical journey for all of us.

    Would you believe that this weekend I found the magic bus I’ve been looking for since the mid 80’s after I read “The Electric Koolaid Acid Test”. This book tells the story of some far out hippies who tripped across America in the 1960’s in a day glow school bus – spreading music, acid and love in their wake. The photos are at

    I’m working on convincing its charismatic “Magic Bus Tripsmaster” – Scott Miller to lead a “Love Convoy” of vehicles from San Fransisco to the Black Rock Desert for Burning Man 2009. Done right, the love convoy should continue to grow longer and more fantastic as it draws closer to Burning Man. Of course, getting the Roads Scholars on the bus for this magic ride is a priority!

    As I’m typing in this comment in a state park in the Redwood Forests of Northern California (using my Verizon broadband card) I can testify to how untethered the digital vagabonding life can be. These days you can get WIFI virtually anywhere – deserts, forests, mountains and even swamps. That’s why on the side of my motor lounge it reads “Digital Vagabonding – Using Technology to make the World Our Playground and Office, Any Where Any Time.” P.S. Pet’s love motor homing too 🙂

    I hope you negotiate an arrangement with you slave masters to work remotely. There are a few useful tips on negotiating this in the book the “Four Hour Work Week”.
