Default A bug out vehicle

Oh, yea, when I make CEO.



Vehicle: KiraVan
Arena: Land
Stoked On: Coffee, Convenience, Origin
Arguably best summed up as a penthouse on a multimillion dollar, all terrain vehicle, the KiraVan is the hyperbole of adventure technology. Boasting kevlar tires, an incredible 2,000 mile range, diesel engine, espresso machine and beyond, there’s virtually nobody we can think of who couldn’t “rough it” in this behemoth.
And all this design so a father could take his little girl camping...

It would be a bit difficult to go grey in that monster.

Presuming I ever had that kind of money this would be my concern as well. It stands out too much.

But it sure is neat to look at.



Looks like it should have FEMA all over it.

The husband and father in this story is none other than Whiteman, a recurring Crumb character first introduced in Zap Comix #1 and always portrayed as a straight-laced capitalist obsessed with projecting a nose-to-the-grindstone All-American image, even when he is riddled with internal doubt.
.
In "Whiteman Meets Bigfoot," Whiteman is vacationing with his wife and two kids when he is suddenly abducted in a forest by a monstrous Bigfoot (or Sasquatch or Abominable Snowman, all used in the story) and hauled off to a distant mountain range. Whiteman is eventually gifted to Bigfoot's daughter as a husband, and the daughter carries him off into the woods to build a newlywed nest. Whiteman soon tries to escape but is easily recaptured by the athletic and speedy female Bigfoot.

Just a little bit of armor plate and it is good.

I wonder what the ride is like when outfitted with run-flat tires?
