We have excellent news! After a burst of tired, delirious joke-cracking upon our arrival in Omaha, NB, we discovered the name for the Locavaux bus and mobile home-Georgia! We had been musing on this name for a while. When on the highway, Georgia seems a fitting name for the bus as she lumbers (gracefully, mind you) through beautiful, vast stretches of open road that the Locavaux Crew has come to love so much. But we also knew that the almond color of the bus had to be incorporated into the name, as her color stands our amidst a sea of black, red and forest green cars and stark white trucks. So, because the state of Georgia is known for its production of nuts, we've given Georgia the bus a nickname--the Nutty Bus! We're excited to finally give our beloved bus, home and office space the full name (and nickname!) she deserves.
And with the bus in mind, and her laundry list of mechanical needs and the expensive cost of fuel to keep her happy and running, we have even more good news! Many people have asked us if it is still possible to continue to donate to the project despite the close of the Kickstarter funding period. We’re thrilled at the prospect of continued support for the Locavaux Project, so we’ve created a donation button located on the right side of the “Home” page of this blog. The PayPal account we’ve set up is an easy and extremely helpful way to give any amount of money directly to the project and to help us continue to travel the country in search of the incredibly talented and diverse local music scenes we can’t seem to get enough of. So please consider donating if you haven’t already and thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the overwhelming kindness and support you have shown the Locavaux Project.
