As the home of Ken Kesey’s ‘Further’, Eugene is the one true Mecca for old school buses sporting colorful paint jobs. And new ones are still being added, like this International sporting a roof-top chicken coop, with several live chickens, of course. Nothing like fresh eggs in the morning; is there a chute that automatically rolls them down to the kitchen after they’re laid?
I first shot and posted this same bus a bit over a year ago in the exact same spot, where overnight parking is tolerated (for now; it’s getting re-developed before long).
Then last August we ran into it down in the Whit, and caught the owner, a woman, in the process of painting it.
And here it is, in its full new splendor.
I called out for permission to shoot it through the open windows, and was readily granted it. But her dog kept an eye on me; or more likely our dogs.
“I am the Lorax….”
The Subaru was running, and obviously being used to charge up the on-board battery in the bus.
Mustn’t forget the chickens; they look like the same ones as last year. Wonder if they’re still laying well?
