So, as you might have noticed the site went some very minor adjustments today. First off you will notice the head banner has been changed to 3rd annual DBFH, our countdown timer has been reset to our start time (Friday November 20th @ 6:00pm) and donations are open.

While we still don’t have much information regarding what Desert Bus for Hope 3 holds, I can promise you we are working hard at making this year better than both one and two combined. We wil try and keep you up to date with guests and prizes as they develop.

I am also publicly stating my $10,000.00 challange. If we can manage to raise $10,000.00 before the event starts I will personally drive for the first 12 hours of the event. 6PM until 6AM. If we are at $8000.00 or more at the start of the event you then have 4 hours (my first official shift) to raise the final $2000.00 and I will honour the challange and go for 12 hours straight (at which point I will probably cry myself to sleep)

Thats all for now ladies and gentlemen!

  2. I’m so excited! I want to thank you guys, once again, for your support of our fundraiser with the video game Old Man Ranting. It was great to have a couple LoadingReadyRun guys in the chat room, and we really appreciate the link love, as well. I will definitely be watching on November 20th, and spreading the word!

  6. you guys should come up with like some program where people can pledge money for distance travelled (eg Mr X will donate $500 if you travel back and forth, or Mr Y will donate $.10 per mile travelled)
    hehehe that would drag on your torture for a bit.

  7. I find it amusing that the 3rd annual Desert Bus for Hope coincides with the release of the new Twilight movie. Methinks someone is going to be seeing it many many times

  9. I’m probably just a noob, but I’m looking everywhere and I can’t find a link for the tech test.

    The closest I can find is the “off-air” ’08 Desert Bus For Hope on ustream.

    Where do I go in three hours to watch this thing?
