The LRR Road Trip Blog: NOW LIVE!

Postby James » 15 Jul 2007, 23:10

http://blog.loadingreadyrun.com

There she is. I just spent the last weekend making then remaking then remaking then remaking once more. And i think its looking pretty slick.
I won't go into to much detail as most everything is explained in the blog. Scroll to the bottom as that is where the first post is, work your way up and then just sit at your computer hitting the refresh button until i post something new!!!

Joking of course :)

One thing i will mention. The page title will be reading "." which is something my simple mind has yet to figure out how to fix. So if you bookmark this page. Which you really should, make sure to rename your bookmark to LRR:BLOG or whatever.

Enjoy!

PS: If you find any bugs or things that don't work just send me PM.

Sure it isn't the blue one they wanted, but with a little Pimp My Chair style work, it will be perfect.

So...

I take it that the announcement of the 'money-making scheme' challenge will be announced tomorrow in the podcast session?

Congrats guys, and in case I forget before then, safe travels down the West coast.

Ha! Graham's gone into Smug Mode.

I hope this upcoming trip'll be totally awesome for you guys.

Are there... seatbelts? Safety first, people.

(additional) One quick note: if comments have to be moderator-approved before they show up on the new blog, we probably won't be able to talk to you guys through them once you start on your trip. It's an extra level of security, but one you likely won't have time to process through.

(additional additional) I like the trip topbar. With those colors, it totally shouldn't work, and yet somehow, it does. Nice job.
I require a dance of intellect. Put on your thinking shoes!

Dance with us, LRR! Dance with us into oblivion!

Do not question me! I control your arms!

Don't need seatbelts on a bus like that. It's like going on a field trip for school.

I looked through the options and it would appear once you have commented once and it has been approved then whenever you comment again it should go through right away.

i am sure you wouldn't be doing more then 90 - 100kph in the bus either.. i have had a crash into a tree at 40kph without a seatbelt on and i was fine, no scratches or whiplash! but then again, i have head of people crashing at 30kph and dying from it..

I remember hearing once that most school buses have an automatic cutoff switch that turns off the engine if you go above 100-110kph.

Does the bus have any Stop signs on it? Because they would have to be made to say Stop. Hammertime!

My, my, my, my music hits me so hard
Makes me say "Oh my Lord"
Thank you for blessing me
With a mind to rhyme and two hyped feet
Feels good when you know you're down
A superdope homeboy from the Oak Bay
And I'm known as such
And this is a bus uh you can't touch

Its the obligatory homage to "The Endless Summer" movie posters, as they are only in that color scheme. Anyone who does anything special for the summer often uses them for the colors of the documents.

Nice blog! It looks really slick. It looks like you guys will be having a lot of fun, I'm jealous. Have a good time!

So, did that actually run you $15,000? And if so...how did you afford it? Or will that be in the Podcast?

Yes and No. The idea is to hopefully is to update once a day while we are away. If i can't get to it for whatever reason then no, it won't be daily but i am going to try.

Ben and Matt show off their soon-to-be child, further proof that Ben is, in fact, a pimp.

Are you saying Matt is prego? If so, why didn't you tell me Matt, I'd be more than happy to be the one to push you down the stairs.

Look at the pics d_r.
I've just noticed that Alex looks a lot more manly when he's hatless. Maybe he should take that into account for the next Man Cooking vid.

And when he's astride a bus.

Alex: for the next Man Cooking, you must cook eggs atop the bus while driving through the searing deserts of the American Southwest. Bonus points if you do so ON the bus itself.

Even more bonus points if they are the eggs of an endangered species.

The bus has space for 15 people to sit comfortably, but they said that there is space for them to each have a bench to themselves, so that means 8 benches plus the driver. I think that in the end, they may fill the seats with humanoid asses, but as for luggage, I would say that they will keep it under their seats or something, maybe in the back of the bus.

By the way, if you listened to the Ways to Keep Cool podcast, you would get an idea of how big the bus is.
