The Furthur Down the Road Foundation


The community of people who care about this project is rich with stories told in words and pictures. Here, we hope to share many of those stories. In this section, you’ll find a blog where we’ll tell you more with each passing month about the history of the Furthur bus and the people surrounding it. We’ll also keep you up to date on the progress of our fundraising efforts and the restoration itself.

But it’s not just about us telling you stories. We want to hear—and see—yours too. Please visit the stories section to read stories submitted by visitors to this site and people supporting the project—as well as a few “special guests.” And check out the photos page photos captured throughout the years of the bus, the Pranksters, and the extended Furthur family. Of course, we want your pics too, so send them in!

Furthur is much more than a bus. It and what it stands for have affected millions of us in so many ways. It’s more important now than ever to keep the “Prankster spirit” alive. We’ll give your stories about Ken and the bus a place for all to see, now and far into the future. Submit your stories to inspire, entertain, and educate others who visit this site. We’ll post as many as we can.
