Camping For Free at Williams Fork Reservoir

Williams Fork ReservoirFall is in the air. As I type this my fingers are numb from the cold creeping in through the window behind me. Needless to say, but the season for camping is coming to an end soon, and The Pig is probably going in the garage for awhile. There is no way the old beast can make it up the drive way in snowy conditions. I want to take apart the heater anyway. I took a look underneath it the…See More

The Air Cooled Pig

Bummed & Venting

 

Some jerk stole my rear view mirror pig ornament, and my buddha statue from my dashboard.  I found that ornament in a box of old stuff in the bus when I purchased it. It was the inspiration for naming her The Pig.   Some people's children. I swear. …

Now you know why I call her the pig. My 76 Bus has a lot of rust, and there is a lot of work to be done...and its gonna be a long work in progress. All I really care aboutis the places it can take me and the fun experiences it presents. I'll send some Camp Site Reviews from Colorado! Or from wherever the Pig takes us for that matter.

I've been loving his round the country tour and trip, and growing more envious each time I read the blog.

I fly into Denver about once a month, would love to see your Bus next time I'm out there.

No not yet, but we were right up there last weekend... It was nice. Bring some insect repellant. :)  The bugs were not too horrible... but they had their moments.
