The name 'Furthur" refers to 'The Bus," a 1939 International Harvester school bus purchased by author Ken Kesey in 1964. The bus was stripped down and remodeled inside and out for a psychedelic excursion across the country with Kesey and his Merry Pranksters on board. The bus was named by artist Roy Sebern, who painted the word "Furthur" on the destination placard as a kind of one-word poem and inspiration to keep going whenever the bus broke down.
