MA, MI, PA? Are you taking cues from my east coast zig-zag last year? :geek:

Glad to see NYCynthia on this list. We've been casually going over her bus, it's nice and ALMOST there. Careful with the brake pedal though; the steering wheel tastes bland.

I think I would love that . . . . but holy cats, I am trying to keep a lid on a lot of nonsense in my life right now. I will trytrytry to organize, to sort, to collate, to edit, and to plan when I get back to Pensacola.

I also have **almost** tasted that steering wheel. Needs something savory. The brakes on Cynthia's bus are quick. Beware. Her bus is quite a think of beauty...unlike ours!

I can arrange some kind of Southern California meet-up, if you pick the day!

And I assume there will be another Deluxe Lucky Lab on July 31st? :geek:

FilthyDub directed me here. I am located in Jacksonville as well and would like to find out some more information about setting something up and what it would entail. I own a 1978 VW Bus that's been converted into a Westy. Cheers!

Send me a PM
a) what model of Volkswagen you own, any modifications?
b) List of Concerns from most-important to least-important
(every one of them, we'll edit later)
c) rundown of your mechanical aptitude, things you'd like to learn?
d) work environment rain-proof and/or plan b for a rainy day?
e) is this a Road Warrior or a weekend putterer?

I've heard it said that nonsense is better than no sense at all...

Looking forward to your annual Portland visit. Hopefully it'll actually be SUNNY AND WARM by the end of July, we are SO SICK of rain and cold here...
