Transportation: Enchanted Gypsy's Converted Schoolbus

Have I posted any Bug Out Buses here before? I don’t think I have.

The premise behind Bug Out Buses is that you have a vehicle that also provides your shelter & home.

Post-apo Application: You’re probably going to have to convert to alternative fuel (veggie) but obviously very practical to stay on the move while having everything you need.

Real World Application: It’s practical to have one in the event of a natural disaster enabling you to move your family out of harms way while still having comfort ,safety ,and essential living needs.

Or just because you want to live like gypsies, like the owner of this one, Enchanted Gypsy.

This converted bus  is awesome & looks nice & cozy.

If the post-apo world turns out to be a watery affair, here’s an idea: Live on a tugboat and grow your food on a greenhouse barge.

 

The hydroponic system on the Greenhouse Barge

The Science Barge is a prototype sustainable urban farm developed by NY Sun Works and acquired by Groundwork Hudson Valley in October, 2008 to be operated as an environmental education center.

The Science Barge greenhouse, floating on the Hudson River, grows an abundance of fresh produce including tomatoes, melons, greens, and lettuce with zero net carbon emissions, zero pesticides, and zero runoff. All of the energy needed to power the Barge is generated by solar panels, wind turbines, and biofuels while the hydroponic greenhouse is irrigated solely by collected  rainwater and purified river water, thus operating completely “off the grid.” It is the only fully functioning demonstration of renewable energy supporting sustainable food production in New York.

The Science Barge is 1,300 square feet of protected, season-extending growing space on the Science Barge can grow as much as an acre of land. This means having the ability to grow 35 tons of tomatoes in just 3% the space traditional farming requires.

For instance, like the Del Popolo Pizza Truck.

Del Popolo is a mobile pizzeria committed to creating rustic Neopolitan-inspired pizza using ingredients sourced from small, generational producers.

Del Popolo is housed in a twenty-foot transatlantic shipping container that’s been re-purposed and modified into a kitchen. A wall of glass doors exposes the interior, including the traditional Italian-made wood-fired oven.

Although it’s not exactly built for speed, it’s a massive 28,000 and has a wood-burning oven in it. Check out  more about the truck here.
