This is the story of the Bus.|
The bus began as a Senior Trip from Harvey Mudd College
in Claremont, CA to New Orleans, LA. The plan was to get
to Mardi Gras and party.
To get to Mardi Gras, 11 Seniors pooled $3780 to buy
a 23 year old city bus with 500,000 miles on it and no seats.
The bus was in good physical condition, but certain unforeseen*
problems occurred on the way.
Jay and Jeff, the two master minds behind the bus brought
with them a log in which the 11 of us could record the trials
and tribulations that happened on the way. This is the
on-line log, posted for all to enjoy.
Before reading the log, however, I recommend reading
this letter from Jeff's dad to
Jeff giving sage advice that none of us took to heart.
The conclusion of the bus story is a tragic one. About a month
after we got back we learned
that Jay Wolkin, owner of the bus and leader of the
expedition died in a plane crash in the San Bernadino mountains.
This log is dedicated to Jay, who has taken a better bus to a
