USY on Wheels, Bus A
July 19, 2012
Today Bus A left LA after a long and fruitful week with their fellow Wheelniks and headed to San Diego. The Wheelniks spent most of the day at Newport beach playing in the sand and the waves. Following this, the group will head back to do some much needed laundry and an evening program. They cannot wait to spend a nice sunny Shabbat in Southern California!

This morning Bus A started off their day with a rip-roaring Shaharit service that got everyone in the mood for an awesome day! The group spent most of the day at Universal Studios theme park enjoying all of the movie themed rides, shops and shows. From there, the group headed to Hollywood Boulevard where got a chance to bask in the pop-culture of Los Angeles! Afterwards the Wheelniks will have free time and dinner on the always entertaining Pico Boulevard. The group will then return to their hotel for an exciting evening program

This morning Bus A started off their day with an energetic Shaharit. Next, Bus A visited the Museum of Tolerance and took in the extremely powerful exhibits. Later the Wheelniks headed over to Beit Tshuva, a Jewish rehabilitation center in L.A., where the group learned about this wonderful organization and heard from patients that they help. From there, hopefully will get a chance to see some stars when they visit the CBS Studio lot in sunny Los Angeles. Later, the group will convene with all the other Wheels groups in L.A. for a fun night on the Santa Monica Pier!

Today Bus A got up early for what is one of the most fun days on Wheels: Disney Day! Before they got to the park, they had a lively Disney-themed Shaharit service! Bus A had a fantastic day with Mickey and Co. as they rode the rides and experienced all the fun at this fantastic park. Almost as great as the park was the chance to meet up with friends from the other Wheels buses who joined them at Disney to share in the fun. In the evening, the group will have a chance to see the beautiful Disney fireworks display. After a long day the group will return to their hotel for the evening.

The Wheelniks had a great Shabbat together as a Bus A community. Today, they woke up early to volunteer at the San Fran AIDS walk. The bus made a huge impact and had a lot of fun while doing so. They then made their way to LA and worked on Tefillah Goals along the way. We’re ready to start our week in LA with the other Wheels Buses!

Today Bus A made their way to San Francisco. On the way they stopped off at the Jelly Belly jellybean factory where they got to try many samples and learned how the delicious candy is made. Later on Bus A had free time to explore Pier 39, Fisherman’s wharf and Ghirardelli Square. In the square many of the wheelniks tried the famous ice cream and chocolate. The group will later go through their normal pre-Shabbat shopping in the city and prepare for their jelly belly themed Shabbat. Shabbat shalom and enjoy the weekend!

Today Bus A drove to Reno. In the morning they davened Shacharit overlooking the magnificently cool Bonville Salt Flats, where each Wheelnik had the special opportunity to pray alone, really giving each of them a chance to connect to their prayers. On the long drive to Reno, the group will probably watch a movie and receive their Shabbudy assignments, for which they will shop later this evening! Bus A can’t wait to celebrate this Shabbat in beautiful San Francisco!
