Hippie

A hippie (sometimes spelled hippy) is a member of a counterculture, originally a youth movement that began in the United States during the mid-1960s and spread to other countries around the world. The word hippie came from hipster and used to describe beatniks who moved into New York City's Greenwich Village and San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district. The term hippie first found popularity in San Francisco by Herb Caen, a journalist for the San Francisco Chronicle.

Ever dreamed of fixing up a bus and traveling around the country? This hippie chick did exactly that and shares a tour of her own renovated bus. Maybe she can give us some pointers on how to do it ourselves.
