“Come to kindly terms with your ass, for it bears you” opens John Muir’s How to Keep Your VW Alive DIY repair guide, for the Compleat Idiot. For Animalia we invite all Playa Idiots and would be idiots to visit Bus Camp for our Leopard Lounge and Day Spa where we offer tequila shots, foot massage and clean white cotton socks, Grateful Dyed tie dye party, crafts, camp tours of our asses, I mean buses, and how we feed and take care of these old beasts. We’ve been doing this on Playa since 1998. To quote John Muir again “The type of life your bus contains differs from yours by time scale, logic level and conceptual anomalies but is “Life” nonetheless. It’s Karma depends on your desire to make and keep it Alive!” Camp’s “Life” is Equality and Community, come visit and see for yourselves.
