There is a planning meeting on November 14th at 7 pm
We’ve made one run so far and hope to make many more! The first run included seventeen human passengers, one dog, one kitten, a dozen or so chickens, one duck and one rabbit and of course, we also took a bus load of donated supplies to the long term campers at Standing Rock. On trip two we would like to reduce the number of passengers to about ten and no livestock until spring.
The bus will be loaded and ready for departure on the night of November 20th. We want to leave at 5 am on the 21st. The plan is to be back in Baltimore on December 1st
If you are interested in coming on the bus we ask that you are up to date and prepared for weather and civil conditions in North Dakota. You will need to bring all your own cold weather camping gear and food for while you’re at camp. We can all work together to see who has what gear for cooking and comforts. After the planning meeting hopefully we’ll have someone who can coordinate all of that. We are asking for a $200 contribution to go towards fuel, tolls and other travel expenses.
To maximize our trip we are being more selective about packed donations we take for the protectors. We hope to have a team assembled and tasked to take care of this. If you are a passenger coming on the bus and have donations to bring please contact us via email so we can coordinate with the appropriate team member.
You can email us at [masked] to reserve your spot on the bus or ask any questions.
WE NEED HELP WITH THE BUS!!
We were very fortunate to make it there and back with the bus! We had three separate incidences of mechanical issues, but thankfully were able to problem solve and get the bus moving again. It is winter temperatures and conditions at Standing Rock. The bus will need some mechanical support to stand up to the conditions there. We would also like to make the bus more comfortable and practical for long hauls of people and supplies. The required budget to make all the changes for both weather and comfort is estimated at about $2,500. You can be of great assistance by using the GoFundMe link below and donating what ever you can. Every $20 helps get us closer to our goal. Thanks very much!!
