That's what I figured.


And this country is still massive.


I'm starting to save my pennies, as of today.

I still don't get what this is, elaborate please?!?

Like, what are we agreeing to by signing up?
My new philosophy is that a crappy tape deck somewhere plays a greatest hits collection of strange and tender moments, lost, stranded, and forgotten. I'll meet you there.

To get more information about possibly going.

You don't pay, obviously, until your card number's been added.


(And this will so make up for the Mayer tour.)

For your credit card.

When you'd pay for this "kick ass vacation"

But I don't have a credit card, and it never asked for a number when I signed up.
Anyway, is this basically what we were talking about Allison when we were going to go to every Ben show across the US, but now we're actually traveling with him?
I'm so lost. Do we have to be a certain age?

No. You haven't done a credit card thing yet, because it's not in stone. That's what I was saying. You haven't been charged, because you can't book yet. You haven't signed that far up yet. It's only for more information about it now. Probably to get a guess on how many people would be willing to go in the end of February in a bright purple bus with Ben.


Hahaha. Actually traveling with Ben. This is ridiculous.

And glorious. And surreal.


And there hasn't been an age qualification yet. And you'll be 16 by then won't you? If you need a chaperone... I'm sure we can find one. :D

Okay, I think I get it now. Thanks. And I'll almost be 17 by then! Yippie!

How much do you think it will cost? I mean, I got bank, but I don't know how much I'm willing to pay...

Woo almost 17!

And, I have no idea. I sent a message to someone who went on Ships & Dips last year for a guess. Though, if we're not on a cruise, it'd be cheaper, I'd imagine. She hasn't responded yet though.

I hope the bus is environmentally friendly, or else I'm outsies.

what do you think this is, a Guster tour?  hehe

the funny thing is, if my calculations are right, I will actually have that week off because I'll be in a grad/teaching program that follows the public school schedule.  February vacation, anyone?
although the income will be severely low next year.
I still signed up in any case, I'm curious!
too school for c...too cool for school
(too cool for school, y'all)

So my friend who went on Ships & Dips said it was about 1000 a person. (And her family of five went. WOW.)

So. I'm starting a BFKAV account in my bank. (Not seriously. But. I'm not going to spend any money on anything else for a very long time. Except gas. So this blasted man better not have too many tempting tour dates this fall, because it'll pain me not to be there.)

Poor man. Needs a hug.

Guys, I don't think you'll actually be ON the bus with Ben. This hypothetical bus will most likely be used to, um, bus round the acts.

It'll be a series of shows, but with additional acts such as Titler.
