Furthur Bus 50th Anniversary Trip

Celebrating 1964 when Ken Kesey and the Merry Band of Pranksters,
bankrolled with funds from One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, set out
aboard the 'Furthur' school bus with film and audio equipment, garbed
in colorful striped shirts, having splashed paint across the bus, strapped
speakers on the top, and convincing beatnik hero Neal Cassady to drive
Furthur.... the Pranksters headed east.

This Summer of 2014 Ken's son, Zane Kesey, along with
Pranksters old and new will head across the USA - Even Further!

#Furthur

SLIDESHOW
A Ride on Further



By Paul Carter The Register-Guard PUBLISHED: 5:10 PM, MAY 14

A few lucky Merry Prankster wannabes boarded the replica of Ken Kesey’s
famous Further (or Furthur) psychedelic bus for a ride around Eugene on
Wednesday.
Zane Kesey drove the bus on the tour — complete with 60s
music and cookies — to drum up support for a cross country tour of the
bus this summer to commemorate the original Ken Kesey tour in 1964.

Well, it was all looking ominous for the Furthur
project back in the days when we did this audio.

Just 65 backers, and trending to only hit 70% of funding target.

But the Prankster Earthlings just done nailed Vice.com! History, the rest is.

KEN KESEY'S SON IS PLANNING A SEQUEL TO
HIS DAD'S LEGENDARY, ACID-FUELED BUS TRIP


By River Donaghey May 20 2014

In 1964, Ken Kesey—intrepid psychedelic traveler and author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest—
piled into a multicolored school bus with his friends and a bunch of drugs and drove from La Honda,
California, to New York City for the premiere of Kesey's new novel.

The gaggle of proto-hippies traveling with Kesey were dubbed the "Merry Pranksters," and their goal
was to freak the fuck out of Middle America
and document the whole thing for a feature-length film.......

Vice hath vast interminglings with the interwebs - and thus will maketh of
Furthur a Virusian Meme. Then infectimonious will all this Tripsterism be!

Guys have done a lot of good media in he last week and
the project's Kickstarter page is looking a lot healthier:

Cracking Vice.com with a feature article helped a bunch.

And then cracking AP a few days ago was clearly mega:

Psychedelic bus gears up for 50th anniversary

By JEFF BARNARD, Associated Press | May 24, 2014 | Updated: May 24, 2014 11:24am

PLEASANT HILL, Ore. (AP) — When the late author Ken Kesey and his pals, the Merry Pranksters, took their psychedelic bus ride across America to visit the New York World's Fair, the nation was mourning President John F. Kennedy's assassination and the Grateful Dead was not yet a band.

And, perhaps most importantly, LSD was still legal.

For their trip, they rode in a bus painted with brightly colored swirls, outfitted with a sound system and emblazoned with the word "Further" as the destination. Sporting short haircuts and red-white-and-blue sport shirts, they had plenty of marijuana and LSD.

"The whole psychedelic scene came from that bus trip," said Kesey's son, Zane, who as a 3-year-old helped paint the bus and waved a tearful goodbye as it drove away.


Now, on the 50th anniversary of the journey, Zane Kesey has launched a campaign on the crowd-funding site Kickstarter, looking for a few good modern-day Pranksters to contribute $200 each for a chance to do it all again, though on a different bus. And without the LSD.

His father, who wrote "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," had been a guinea pig for government tests of the mind-altering drug and shared the experience at a series of parties at his home in the hills above Stanford University that became known as the Acid Tests.

They featured a local bar band called The Warlocks, which turned into the Grateful Dead. After the trip, the bus became the centerpiece as the Acid Tests went on the road.

After a road trip to New York with his parents and wife, Faye, to see the stage production of "Cuckoo's Nest," Kesey thought it would be fun to get his friends to do another cross-country ride that would serve as the basis for a movie, with LSD at the center, friend Ken Babbs said.

It soon became clear that the family station wagon would not be big enough, so Kesey sent a friend up to San Francisco to check out an ad for an old school bus converted into a camper, with bunks and a kitchen, Babbs said.

"I think it was $1,500," he said.


During the journey, the bus was pulled over by a policeman in California, got bogged down in an Arizona River and lost one of its crew to a bad trip in Texas.

In Louisiana, the Pranksters jammed with a piano player in a New Orleans bar. In New York, they rolled through the streets playing their homemade music and met poet Alan Ginsberg, who took them to a Connecticut estate to meet LSD guru Timothy Leary.

The movie never materialized as the new art form Kesey had envisioned, a victim of the film and audio tapes reproducing at different speeds that couldn't be synchronized until 30 years later with the help of digital technology. Kesey died in 2001.

Texas A&M historian Terry Anderson, author of the book, "The Sixties," said the bus trip was too early to kick off the counterculture, adding that it was overshadowed by the Beatles and the signing of the Civil Rights Act the same year.

But the tapes and film gave author Tom Wolfe the material he needed for his 1968 book, "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test," which made the trip a touchstone of the psychedelic era.

Babbs said Kesey himself never claimed to have started the psychedelic era, but he was happy to ride the wave. "We were too young to be beats, and too old to be hippies," he said. "We were really our own thing."



Embarking at the end of July, the anniversary trip is making no attempt to recreate the old one, and follows a more northerly route, visiting a series of arts and music festivals.

People who want a chance to get on the bus must invest $200, and pass a series of tests, answering questions such as whether they like movies about gladiators. The chosen will get a token to board the bus for a leg, and join in making a new movie.

Though not even born when the original bus embarked on June 17, 1964, Joshua Priest, 26, and Andrea Castillo, 21, of Menisee, California, are determined to get onboard.

Grateful Dead fans who learned about the bus trip by reading Wolfe's book, they learned about the anniversary expedition on Facebook and raised $400 with a garage sale. Castillo, a graphic arts student, created a series of drawings answering the questions.

"That's what life is about: taking chances and having fun," she said.

We now know that Kesey, Hunter, and Leary were all CIA MKUltra agents
Leary being #2 below only the director in USA (it was A Nazi operation before CIA took over).

Sandoz owned by Warburgs who with Schiff started the USA FED, enemies of everything hippies stood for, and if they knew who owned the lab and why they would have lost their boots running the opposite direction.

Leary was so loved by the CIA they partnered with NASA (acronym for Satan without the T) ... to scatter his ashes in space.

He created a pool of cheap labor telling ppl to drop out (He was a Harvard Dr who DIDN'T drop out, but rather dropped IN to the CIA)

The CIA was started by Nazi/Khazar/Banking families (Like Busche who financed Hitler) to ruin America as they saw an independent USA as a threat technologically. Fortunately for Nazis it worked, selling cheap/free LSD/PCP/TCH/MDA/DMT/DOM/STP/FBI/CIA/NSA/USA at universities in USA zombified so many talented youths that Germany was able to create a military industrial monopoly in USA.

IT WORKED !!!

Thank your daddy for screwing America Little Zane Kesey !!!
