Background on the Veterans Green Bus below the flying Spaghetti Monster.
The Veterans Green Bus some remarkably good things have happened. If you'll remember, the bus had a mid-engine fire which did $4,000 worth of damage. That happened in Roanoke, VA. Some very kind people - including many of you - stepped up, and paid the bill. Gordon Soderberg, project manager for the bus, drove first to his home base in Detroit, then on to Rockford, IL and met with Congresswoman Cheryl Bustos. They discussed the green energy aspects of the project as well as how much Veterans help other Veterans cope with the PTSD.
The above shot shows how Team Rubicon and Veterans Green Bus volunteers worked aboard the bus during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
When Gordon pulled into Portland, OR there was a full tank of bio-diesel waiting for him. Now that's not your typical VW 12 gallon tank. Large Marg holds 250 gallons! And the bio-diesel retails for $4.00 a gallon. [Gordon refines his own right on the bus. It's a remarkable and amazingly simple process.] So, Large Marg took on $1,000.00 worth of the good stuff all donated.
