How many points do we have? It seems like every time I watch it's day time sans splat.

So far they've accumulated 4 points and 12 crashes.

The longest they've gone without a crash is from 35:10 into the run (Andrew tripped over the controller cord and disconnected it, crashing the bus) to 54:19 (Ashton crashed the bus on Lefty mode).

Zeta shift is best shift! I'm hoping to see more Late Nite Dub Fight before the drive is over.

I have an obligation Saturday night so I'm hoping the drive ends either before six PM Victoria time or after 10 PM. My viewing is on & off throughout the week but I've never missed the beginning or end so far since DB1.

My GF & I were visiting friends tonight for our weekly group viewing of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (since my GF was the only one that had seen it.) When we got there the other guy turned to me & asked, "Say, have you ever heard of this thing called Desert Bus for Hope?" We had a good laugh, especially since I was just about to ask him the very same thing. It was great to find another fan in someone just becoming a new friend. :)

Has Cards Against Desert Bus be played, or will it?

It was an awesome thing to be submitted and it was great for the open invitation to help shape it.
Want to know if I am the only one who is curious to see how it plays.

I think they will play just when they give it away at the end of Kara's shift

I've been able to enjoy Desert Bus every night this year. :) To keep my mouse busy, I've been playing around with photo editing & stuff. As you may have noticed, my Game Boy Camera activity has revived.

Is that from a real Game Boy Camera? Or did someone make a filter?

So if the time sticks to how it is, maybe another hour added, DB9 will end at roughly 10-11PM (Their time), so that's 12-1am my time.

Hooboy.

Curiosity sated. Would have liked more but I suppose tight schedule and they didn't want to ruff the cards too much.

If you play Pretend You're Xyzzy, then just use /addcardcast EEZKM to add the CADB set. Then, you can play this yourself. :-)

I think it's hilarious that the forum literally grinds to a halt every year during this week. It's good to know so many forumites are supporting Desert Bus for Hope.

I recently discovered a program that can create/edit Game Boy Camera images & ran the driver profile photos through the filter to create what you see above & what I've been linking to in the chat. However, I use the actual Game Boy Camera a LOT & my Flickr account is full of those images.

At this rate I'm gonna be going to sleep at 4am.

I've slept 5-6 hours each night all week. Riding that DB high all the way.
Just call me Dylan. It's easier to pronounce.

It's to the point in the drive where they only have a couple hours left & everything is really exciting because they've raised so much money but I'm very secretly hoping they don't have to drive another hour beyond what's already there because I'm so tired & want to go to bed. But I'll be there to the very end!!

Don't want to miss the stinger after all. And I still have a bit left in my bank account I can afford to donate. :D

Just wanted to say, having watched Desert Bus a fair bunch this week, it made me miss being in the forums regularly. Haven't had as much time to spend here given work and life that's come my way. But every moment spent LRRing is/was time well spent.

Just wanted to say (riding high on Desert Bus feels), love y'all, and if anyone was wondering, I'm doing good, very busy and happy, my life is very much in a good place, and I hope you all are the same. This place was here for me when not a lot of other places were, and I don't know if I ever fully acknowledged that.

Stay gold, bus hard.
