Hank Bought a Bus

Special D25 Feature Story:

It’s one thing for me to drive 3,000 miles in a weekend in the comfort of a 2013 Acura ILX that can zip through traffic, provide all the creature comforts of a luxurious atmosphere, and all the while get excellent mileage.  But can you imagine taking a cross-country 5,000-mile drive in a school bus?

That’s what Hank Butitta is doing.  But this isn’t just any old school bus.  This is a bus that has been completely gutted by Hank as part of his architecture studies in Wisconsin and made into an RV.  To cap off his achievement, he’s embarked on a trip involving friends & family as they together join on this unique adventure.

The last time I checked, Hank is in the Pacific Northwest.  He’s posting daily about his travels.

Check out the introductory video here:

That bus looks a lot like the one belonging to my brother that I drove in March and blogged about.  Hank’s detailed blog with great pictures is here.  It’s definitely worth a read.  Maybe someday our paths will intersect!

As a side note, it’s no mystery that my love of roads and of maps go hand in hand.  You might find these pictures of 40 Maps That Will Help You Make Sense of the World as interesting as I did.
