I’ve been seeking the elusive “magic bus” ever since IÂ read the book “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test” many years ago. This book tells the story of some far out hippies (the “Merry Pranksters”) who tripped across America in the 1960’s in a day glow school bus – spreading music, acid and love in their wake.
Having missed the 60s, I felt I’d missed the magic bus. But in recent times, I’ve come to know a reincarnation of the original magic bus and become good friends with its owner, Scotty Miller. This year we are journeying across America, coast to coast, to spread love and light and act as a vehicle for free speech and open discussion. Join us on the bus and or online at MagicLoveBus.org.
The original magic bus from the sixties, called “Further”, is rusting and decaying in a field in Oregon. But its soul searching joyous journey lives on in Scotty’s bus and the magic that is created by the ebb and flow of its passengers.
