Ken Kesey’s son is planning a sequel to his dad’s legendary acid-fueled bus journey, only this one will be funded via Kickstarter
Ken Kesey’s 1964 drug-fueled trip from California to New York with a group of friends on a psychedelic bus named “Further” has become a cornerstone of 1960s counterculture legend. The One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest author was on his way to NYC anyway for the debut of a new novel, so he got some people together dubbed “The Merry Pranksters” and they drove across America, freaking out the normals in the process. Now in 2014, Kesey’s son, Zane is looking to re-create the journey, funded in the 21st century way— through Kickstarter.
