After 10 years, travelling through 25 US states and two Canadian provinces and logging nearly 400,000 miles, Rathkeltair’s 2000 Ford Econoline 350 Van (the Big White Van made famous on our album of the same name in 2008) has finally reached the end of the road. We’ve managed to keep it running on a wing, a prayer and a few rolls of duct tape for quite a while now but it has reached the point where the repairs required cost more than it would to just buy a new (or at least new-er) van.
This would be a simple matter except for the fact that we don’t have anywhere near the amount of capital needed to finance another vehicle. So we decided to appeal to you, our loyal fans, to help us generate some. We’re not asking for charity, or a hand-out. We’re looking for investors! And like any good investment, you’ll get a decent return including a brand new Double Live CD and so much more!
