Man who walk through airport sideways; going to bangkok.

I don't wish ill on you, bro.

But, It is nice to see the MNOs not falling for the ol' "Me love you so much, please buy my mom and dad a new donkey to prove you care about family, ours is sick!"

I'd refurb it myself if you went for electric drive. Working on my Electric Hummer now...

I think I get what your saying camosoul-not sure if your supportive or not.... a bit.... cryptic? ( no cliché pun intended)

What I do know is that the pearl white and blue spray out of the DASH BUS logo came out great- the painter has great skills and I am moving forward with the project regaurdless if I get the funding or not. It's going to look great. I am going for the next budget funding payout. Even if I put up the five DASH and lose it-no worries- it will look great and I'll enjoy it. Working out the itinerary of all the events I'll drive to-only reason all this isn't online and ready to post is for a long time I was a true blue luddite- kind of behind on twitter and facebook and youtube... but I just reactivated my twitter, facebook, and soon youtube video coming.

DASH BUS will not be stopped. It's gonna roll up to every conference and meet up I find heading west first. Will stop in New Mexico to get briefed at DASH Headquarters.

I want to not only be able to pontificate my position on DASH to new digital currency users but to hardcore crypto enthusiasts. I printed out the Dash White paper and want to know it like the back of my hand. I understand the power of the 2nd tier system, masternodes... DAO aspect.... etc... but I want to be at the Andreas Antonopoluous/ Evan Duffield level.... at least shoot for that... so if I fall short I will still have much knowledge. I am going full force. Cant stop THE DASH BUS.

If I combine my passion for travel, VW and DASH- it makes a trifecta of enthusiasm that refuses to submit!

DASH BUS coming soon! Look for it. Want people to be able to follow it and hit me up for DASH giveaways, pamphlets, conversations, debates.... it's going to be great. All filmed and posted on various forms of media.

The biggest issue is going to be how much to ask for-I want to aim high so I can be effective but not come across as wasteful. A lot of this I can I fund myself thanks to my alt-coins taking off in such a dot com bubble fashion.... but the point is to do this BIG, BOLD and RIGHT.

Human contact and interaction goes along way with getting people on board. And then filming it all and posting it.... well... DASHTASTIC.

Hi Blake,

I like the word PASSION because that's important in all the things you do in life.
Try a proposal for 2 months and send your video's from your trip to Dash Force News.
Don't ask to much Dash the first time and prove yourself to the Dash community.

Thanks Bossie- I am taking my time to build up a little attention- bus may be done in time for plenty of buildup and attention from masternodes for next budget payout. The painter made this spray out of the logo-just a small sample- the picture doesn't do it justice to how it shines in the light-good paint and painter- pearl white and pearl blue- we also will include DIGITAL CASH by all logos and Instant. Private. Secure. so anyone looking at the bus can get an idea of what it is about.... here is a photo we took of what could go on each front door-plus the bus has side panels that are about like moving billboards. A lot of this project too will be me outlining all the events I hit where I film and post the footage on different forms of media I am preparing.

It will do good. The images will be bigger and bolder but the painter took the initiative to do a paint out to show me what the colors will look like. I think it's great.

The passion is there.

I wouldn't of put "Instant - Private - Secure", looks too like PIVX. Better to put "Dash - Digital Cash", it's more descriptive.

I am with you on that-don't know if you read above up earlier in thread but we are definitely making it newbie friendly- the words DASH-DIGITAL CASH will be in multiple spots- and in such a way and pattern that it's aesthetically pleasing as well as effective. Were not going to overload the bus with Dash details (no pun intended for all you Amanda B Johnson listeners) but have the main goal for it to be a moving, pristine advertisement that serves as an information station as well. (Copies of the DASH white paper on board for advanced, flyers, DASH t-shirts)

I can fund a lot of this myself at first-my first propoisal will be modest in payment, but I want to show you guys what I am capable of (gainas well as myself, honestly gauging me effectiveness) and then propose again.

I really appreciate all input GrandMasterDash. I am excited about this.

There is a bus. A DASH BUS...and there is a driver of the DASH BUS- who thinks DASH is great- and he drives all over with joy and flyers and midnight conversations on economics and philosophy.
Joy is the word!

But how about daytime conversations of economics and philosophy, with midnight conversations reserved for beauty and poetry?

@Blake, I would approach DashForce with project funding requests like this one. They are actually becoming one of the intermediaries or managers of funding for small projects. It's kind of the way things are going due to the high volume of requests. I wouldn't request funding directly from the budget anymore for smaller projects like this. It's likely that it will not be voted on, as MN owners feel they can't follow and evaluate so many projects themselves anymore.

Ok, thanks for input-let me look up DASH FORCE and try to start a dialogue

find mastermined on the Dash Nation slack :)

BTW, I have a 1990 Vanagon :D Learned to drive in a '75 bus. Dad loved VWs, and I love the older ones too, the new beetle is adorable, but all I'd want is another bus again! The one they came up with that looked like a diesel train was so awesome, I wish they'd make it in electric, LOL.

I guess this is the latest version:


I just wish they could make it rear engine because those drive like a 4WD!

If you already maintained a popular blog showcasing this beautiful van's travels and shenanigans, a sponsorship to a calculated degree could be justified.

Appreciate the words of advice-I am working on these things. I am hoping the bus will be ready soon and then I will start recording travels and such. I am patiently building up this project.

This looks awesome! Is this just a concept or you can buy one?
Just a concept again :( I just learned last night that Tesla is making an electric micro bus inspired by VW. If VW can't get their act together, I might get one of those :p when Dash reaches 10,000 USD, LOL



Both of them are a little too short for my liking. The VW is supposed to be 16' long. Why? I want something that can haul a sheet of 4X10 plywood! or at least 12 foot long lumber minimum (at an angle is OK)

Proposal Evaluation Committee

Hi Blake

Just want to find out if you are planning to submit your proposal officially, i.e. Pay the 5 Dash to submit it?
If so, do you agree to the PEC (Proposal Evaluation Committee) assisting you in preparing your Pre-Proposal?

The way we do it is to give a Report on your Proposal highlighting areas that you can improve.
As you improve the Proposal the Report is adjusted and this may be done a number of times (up to 5 or more), each time the chance of your Proposal being accepted by the MNO’s will increase.

The Report also has another function:
To give the Pre-Proposal a percentage mark. This percentage will make it possible to give the MNO’s and community a prioritized List of Evaluated Proposals. This list will save everyone time and increase the chance of your Proposal gaining votes.

However, please be aware that the PEC has not officially been accepted by the MNO’s. We are also in the Pre-Proposal phase, so you have no obligation to partake.
If you want to know who will be doing the Evaluations – see here: Official PEC Pre-P https://goo.gl/qrbeXK

If you do want to use our services (note this is a free service)
1. Please PM me on the Dash Pre + Budget Proposal Discussions Forum indicating agreement.
2. and if you have not done this yet, please read: How to submit a Dash Pre-Proposal https://goo.gl/7jmwXQ
3. Once you have read it you might want to adjust your Pre-Proposal before we submit the 1st Report, so I will wait for you to give us the go-ahead before we start the evaluation process.

If you don’t want the PEC to evaluate the Proposal – please PM me as well, then I won’t bug you again for an answer ;)

Good luck with your Proposal!

Forgot to mention. We will be doing Reports on all Pre-Proposals towards the end of the cycle in any case.
Couple of things in How to submit a Dash Pre-Proposal https://goo.gl/7jmwXQ has been simplified to make your life easier J
See Changes to Pre-Proposal and Note.

Good luck as always;)

Hey there-thats a great idea you got! My idea has been officially proposed but your service would have been helpful.

I'm hoping I get it- votes are tight, time will tell.

Oh thank you sir! It did get funded and now I have a project going on called Dash Texas-which is essentially about setting people up with Dash Wallets and informing them on how Dash is a global movement that is expanding fast!
