SO the Atlanta leg of this tour is late April? Before or after Easter? Might I suggest you and I meet with the ATL Wagens, Zabo and another pizza pool and beer night? I will drive.

I have a few Sat/Sun dates this summer that are tied up for school, but that looks good! I'll confirm the exact dates.

I could probably even use a 2nd half or full day if the schedule allows. After we figure out the oil leak and shifter bushing, I want to have a slow walkthrough of the bus.

1982 Mercedes-Benz Estate Wagon (300TD-T) - S123 3.0L T.D. - 142,000m

You got it. Be prepared for a peppering desert sandstorm of information and work in the 90-100*s, perfect weather for loose muscles.

You should probably stick me in there somewhere. Who knows what things will look like then, but there are indications of a need for your presence.

It would be my pleasure to have an excuse to drive that Vanagon again, you bet. Any friends/family in northeast Japan? My nephew was down in Kyoto when the quake/tsunami struck.

Colin,
The last snow piles here should disappear this week, and I immediately thought of getting the '71 SB back to IL. See you are slotting in your 2011 Tour. Looks like early - mid June in the greater Chicago area, can you schedule in my '71 again?
Hope the winter treated you well - let's do some work, talk about the world, & get Bob over to see The Bob D. I'm loading in the Diet Coke.
Stay well,
Rob

Rob! hey. Yes, let's do an appointment. Remember, sophomores get hit hard with mechanical chores. Bob will be surprised to see what I have done to that poor bus to make it more original.

Hey Colin. I'm interested in a full days visit from you this summer, as my '70 Westy deserves it. I'm 20 minutes from Chris in Belle Plaine, MN. :thumbright:

I'd love the chance to drive a Type 1 powered bus . . . I think I might need to go buy one.

Add to the herd? The BobD will get jealous.

=D> Even though the circumstances suck, that's going to be a lucky Bus. Glad to hear it'll be kept in the "family". :thumbleft:

It will turn into a Scooby Doo style mystery involving fake road signs and me in a Sasquatch "suit".
Old timers, in the horrible distant future will surely remark, "Some say they can still hear that ol' Sasquatch, stilllllllllll drivin that single port bus....listen you can allllllllllmost hear him drop inta a lower gear, yessir"
and that will be that.
