Bus Update: MD Fan Spends Week with APX
Sun., May. 27. 2007 4:46pm EDT

You packed your bags as I recall
And you walked slowly down the hall
You said you had to get away to ease your mind
And all you needed was just a little time
... Nathan Jones you've been gone too long

The Supremes, "Nathan Jones," a Top 20 Hit in 1971


ApologetiX fan Nathan Jones lives in Waldorf MD and is a regular at our concerts in Maryland and northern Virginia. But he spent last week in Pittsburgh PA working on the ApologetiX bus renovation project. And he did a supreme job. Nate sent us a follow-up email afterward, and you'd think he'd been on a site-seeing tour:

I had a really great time with Karl and Deb and their friends! They took me out to dinner and then on a tour of Pittsburgh. (I had never been to Pennsylvania before.) I got to see where you guys took the photo for the cover of the "Apol-acoustiX" CD and the place where J. and Karl worked together. I saw plenty of other cool sights too and I was amazed at how big the city is! It's much better than DC, if you ask me!


As the "Apol-acoustiX" CD says, "Don't be fooled." Nate worked hard; he's just a positive guy who sees God's blessings in everything he does. And Nathan is just one of many in our army of laborers. So many friends and fans have contributed their time and money to the project that it's almost impossible to name them all.

But there's still plenty of work to be done and money to be raised in order to get our new bus renovated in time for the June 29 deadline.

"You don't have to be rich to rule my world"
-Prince

ApologetiX fans around the world are contributing large and small. The vast majority of the funds raised were raised with small gifts like these two:

$1.00 from Sarah Fix, age 6, Sharpsburg, GA. She is a big fan of Apologetix and wanted to help build the bus.

$5.00 from Jacob Fix, age 11, Sharpsburg, GA. He is a big fan of Apologetix and wanted to help build the bus so here are some funds from his allowance. Really enjoyed seeing you guys play at the amphitheatre in Peachtree City!

P.S. - Turns out my wife knows how to send money via paypal in ways that I never knew...


Just like the widow's mite, that's all the money in the world to those kids and we don't take that lightly. We are researching and bargain hunting and doing a lot more of the work ourselves than we thought we'd be able to, just to make the donations go as far as they can. (and they're about to run out :( when we get our electrical system going next week.

I Want To Help Get the Bus Going!

Project coordinator Karl Messner, who is also our lead guitarist and producer, keeps an online journal where you can read updates and see photos of the project's progress:

http://apologetix.com/bus

I Want To Give to Help Build the Bus! Folks who help out with $100 or more get a cool "I Helped Build the Bus" Tee and if you can help out with even $1, you'll get your name on a plaque in the bus of folks who helped.

If you'd like to help out with some elbow grease, let karl at apologetix dot com know! Just put "I'm ready to help Build the Bus" in the subject line when you email. And if you already know how to get to Karl's farm, just show up in dirty clothes and we'll put you to work.
