6’ Tall, Brown Hair, Brown Eyes. Attractive, but only in the eyes of those who love me. I have a scar on my right hand from playing with a SIM tool remover and one on my left leg from a trampoline accident in 1995. This one time I saw a bear.

Hi! I’m Ashley; during the not Desert Bus times of year, I work as a paralegal for the Province of British Columbia. My interests are my fur baby Jade (aka Tiny Jerk), bugging James as much as possible and Ironman. Prep your voices, Africa is coming!

Ash Vickers & Ashley Turner

Ash Vickers

Driving since: 2014
Points: 0
Crashes: 0

One day a meteor from a far off planet fell into a vat of toxic chemicals that was being blasted by gamma-rays. The chemicals splashed onto a genetically mutated spider from Krypton whose parents had been murdered in an alley and thus, Ash Vickers came to be.

… There was also a giant bear in there somewhere.

It’s Desert Bus’ 10th year:

Her first memory of Desert Bus:
Graham texted me during DB1 telling me I should come home (I was living at the DB1 location at the time) and hang out on a live camera feed while they played a video game about driving a bus. It sounded boring to me, so I stayed at my friend’s house and played WoW until they were done. 😛

Raised in the wilds of the Sunshine Coast, Ashley was bestowed the ability to perfectly size and weight a package by sight alone. She makes use of this unnatural ability exactly 7 days a year. Kinda a waste if you ask me.

It’s Desert Bus’ 10th year:

Her first memory of Desert Bus:
Walking into Bill and Morgan’s living room and seeing the camera sitting there with the lens attached with rubber bands.

Ashley “Bobo” Turner

Ashley Turner

Driving since: 2014
Points: 0
Crashes: 1

Patronus: THIS

Theme Song: Africa by Toto (Like there was ANY question)

First Crush: JTT baby! Jonathan Taylor Thomas, I’m a true 90s girl!

Why “Bobo”?
From before I was born, my Dad called me Bobo, still does to this day.

How she feels about driving for Desert Bus 9:

When not at Desert Bus, she can be found:
Fighting crime, quite literally. I work for the BC Provincial Government seizing assets and proceeds of crime from bad people.

ashleyAshley Turner

Driving: Sunday, Nov 16 1pm – 4pm

Driving since: 2014
Points: 0
Crashes: 0

When not at Desert Bus, she can be found:
As a key member of the Ministry of Justice (though, she’s lobbying to have it renamed the Ministry of Avengers) Ashley is instrumental in the seizure of objects of unlawful activity.
No lie, she is personally in possession of the 5th and 6th yet unseen Infinity Stones from the MCU. Don’t even worry about it.

Special Skills:
I know every word to Baby got Back and know for a fact I can duet very well with someone singing along in an Afrikaans accent.

She’s a total geek for:
I like Iron Man. I like watching Iron Man, I like talking about Iron Man, I like playing with Iron Man, I like reading about Iron Man, I like dreaming about Iron Man, I LOVE to talk to Iron Man.
I like Iron Man.
Iron Man, Iron Man, Iron Man.

Claim to Fame:
I successfully won “Bros Clubbing Bros” at my own wedding.
Editor’s Note: She may have, in fact, won this FOREVER. Besides birthing a club soda or viewing one in a casket, I’m not sure this can ever be bested.

Biggest fear about Driving for DB8:
No, seriously guys. I’m terrified I’m going to crash the bus. I’ve put in MAYBE 30 minutes in the past 7 years.

If she was reincarnated as a fruit or vegetable she would want to be:
Asparagus, cause then I’d have the chance to come back and make someones pee smell bad.

Favourite Cheese:

Doesn’t want you to know she listens to:
90’s Boy Bands

Her “moves like Jagger” are more like:
A fish out of water

To prepare for driving the bus she is:
Getting advise from the one person who’s driven the bus more than anyone in the world. Lucky for me I know where he sleeps.

What symbol does your superhero cape have on it?
