Melted Bumpers and the Mojave Desert

If you've seen us on the road you know our tour bus is really a tiny white Toyota Yaris with almost 300,000 miles on the odometer. Jason takes great care of the car and always makes sure we are safe on the road, but this particular trip something happened we just couldn't have planned on. This week on our way to California, just outside of Vegas things got a little crazy. First, our GPS went haywire and sent us to a random intersection the Vegas suburbs. Then, we stopped at a gas station where they didn't allow anyone to use the restrooms. In a frustrated hurry to leave and get on the road to another station we forgot to get our change for our gas. Then, the next place we stop the bathrooms were out of order. We finally drove across the street to a place with working restrooms and as we came out of the station we noticed our bumper was almost touching the ground!!! It had literally started melting in two and was almost dragging on the ground. Luckily, Jason had packed duct tape, but it wasn't quite enough to cover the whole hear the rest of the story be sure and watch our video on this page.

Don't worry we made it to California in once piece (even the bumper) and should be all set to finish out our tour. We are looking forward to our house concert here in Orange County this weekend!
