Six Mile Pub & Eatery logoWe here at Desert Bus would like to take a moment to recognize one of our very generous food and drink sponsors, Six Mile Pub & Eatery. As most of your know, a lot of the Desert Bus crew are stuck here for many MANY hours during the run and, as as it turns out, we need food and drink to survive (who knew, right?). We couldn’t make it through this event without the generous support of sponsors willing to provide us with the sustenance and energy we need!

Located at 494 Old Island Highway, Six Mile Pub & Eatery continues to be the “Living Room” and the “Dining Room” of the community, the Six Mile Pub has her reputation firmly rooted in the quality of her products and services.

Thank you, Six Mile Pub & Eatery, for your wonderful donation to the Desert Bus crew!

We’re running out of time and out of stuff to give! We have three more silent auctions up for bidding, so check them out before the end at 6pm PST!

maxresdefaultFirst up we have the gracious provider of a keg of beer for our after-party! The high bidder for this lot will receive an official “Beer Provider” certificate and the satisfaction of knowing they helped get the Desert Bus crew tipsy (on something other than sleep deprivation) after a week of utter insanity.

Next up is a handmade, miniature chocobo named Sable! Comes complete with collar, tag, and “wing support bar” for when she wants to strike a pose.

And last up is The Hobbit baby blanket! Soft as an Elf’s skin, and warm as the fires of Mount Doom, your little one will be as content as Hobbits at a feast.

On vacation in South America, Paul was bitten by a radioactive sloth. He gained the proportional laziness of a sloth but has pledged to use his powers only to help those in need. Upon further investigation, it is possible that the sloth wasn’t actually radioactive, in which case, the laziness was inside him all along!
