    The Grand American Tour - documenting an open ended road trip from Los Angeles to ??? via VW Bus.

    September 28th, all the I's are dotted, the T's are crossed, every imaginable check performed to make sure  the Daftfalia is ready for the Grand American Tour and the road trip starts off with smashed spark plugs, metal in air filter, and a whole new engine rebuild. So far, we've gone -2 miles overall BUT if this adventure is anything like my last one, this is just a speed bump before the trip of a lifetime.

    Team Lucas and Million Mile Herbie [Rick Kusak and Clayton Capps]

    Team Lucas and Million Mile Herbie [Rick Kusak and Clayton Capps]

    After a rollercoaster of a year, LOADB is excited to bring the feel good story of the year with Team Lucas, the Kusak family and friend Clayton met up with LOADB on a VW road trip to Oklahoma City. 

    Rick Kusak is the owner of several air cooled Volkswagens but one very special Bus in particular that came to him in light of his newborn son Lucas, who needs a wheelchair and how Rick and his family came to acquire their wheelchair accessible VW Bus with the outpouring of support of the wider Volkswagen community. 

    Clayton Capps, Rick's friend, is also the owner of several Volkswagens including "Million Mile Herbie", a 1963 VW Beetle decked out like the Love Bug that he has documented 1,000,000 miles of driving with (and an extra 20,000 miles just in the last few months!). 

    Thank you to our friend Dustin for hosting LOADB in his garage for this episode!

    Audio Note: due to equipment issues this episode was recorded directly on the LOADB laptop rather than through microphones. Headphones are recommended.
