definitely a half day ... possibly a full day....depends on how far along I am with the engine rebuild. Friday - Sun preferable....so we can have an itinerant get together for Michigan peeps (or anyone else that wants to travel to the Shady Shores) but am flexible. :flower:

I'm in with our 1980 Vanagon (it's actually a September 1979 model). The "problem" is that I have not uncovered anything that needs work. (Don't want to waste our time on the nonfunctional windshield washer). But we have several long trips planned between now and when you make it to the West Coast so in all likelihood something will emerge. Looking forward to diving in again.

Hi there! First timer here... Busbassist lives in my neighborhood and I am hoping to schedule a day the same week he has you visiting.

I have a 1973 Automatic Camper. I am hoping to have you look around and make any suggestions and places I need to focus. She had a good season last year, but seems to have lost a lot of power. I am not sure if it is the carburetor and or something with the throttle cable. I am a beginner working on busses and cars in general and I hope to pick up skills and confidence to work on the bus.

I made my deposit today.

Here are some dates that mostly align with Busbassist

May 13-18, 20-25, 27-June 1

June 10-15

August 21-31

First timer here also. I am interested in a full day.
New to me 1978 Camper Deluxe FI manual transmission. Well cared for with only 1 previous owner. Hoping to keep forever and learn how to make that happen.

Bay Area, California
Dates: ideally before July but can be flexible.

Brand new to this. In Amarillo, TX. Currently, the 77 bus is in a shop getting a new gas tank and hopefully will run by the time you get here. If not, that is the priority. Or another option is 79 automatic, camper, that is from a salvage yard, not running for a long time
There is so much to learn, I can start anywhere and learn something. Definitely no experience.
I have a shop and lift to use

I hope we can do that. If it is a half day, I will need others in your area to sign up. I have committed financial atrocities with an order for three sets of Len Hoffman heads (one of which will be reimbursed down here in Miami).
