Since Desert Bus 10, Matt has been training long and hard, honing mind and body to the peak of human endurance. Now harder, faster, and stronger, he is prepared to tackle his biggest challenge to date – a five day trip to Disneyland.

After which he’ll show up to Desert Bus… Probably.

It’s Desert Bus’ 10th year:

Her first memory of Desert Bus:
DB1. Stumbling in to a herd of geeks in Bill’s living room. There were cameras and wires, the drivers chair, 24 hour shifts and a long trail of empty energy drink cans. I brought food.
