Looking for a camper

My car was stolen again, so I'm thinking of buying a camper. Again. But I can't see the classifieds. Not sure what this means: "Module needs a ModulePrefs section!"

Bone head move

I got the weekend messed up in my head. I went on the 26th, ha! The guy was real nice about it, but I felt pretty dumb.

VW Mechanic Northern CA HELP!

Dear VW Bus Family,

I have run into a long series of bad mechanics who have left me right where I started 3 years ago.  Everyone I know says to give up on my VW Bus, but I am not.  I have a new/rebuilt long block, I just need someone who knows how to work on old VW's like ours and what they are doing and put it all back together. 

I had 1.7 liter Porsche high performance pancake engine, and we tried to upgrade it to a 2.0 liter long block.  Long sad story, but I need to tow it…

All Dressed Up for Bus City in the Redwoods

Dang, it.

1971 Single Cab loaded and ready to go up and meet all the folks for the weekend.

Turned the key and the warning light (Gen and Oil) came on , heard the fuel pump kick, and nothing.  No Starter bump, cycled the key off and immediately tried again...same result.

Turned the key back off...and realized the warning lights and electric fuel pump were still on.

Dang it.

Afraid I am going to miss the weekend, busy tearing down the steering…

Out With The Old... Sadly!

Check out our latest post on www.rweethereyet.com
In Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo Mexico, getting fresh paint on Pumper. After 4 years driving on 4 continents and at times some pretty sketchy roads, time to pamper to get rid of the road scars and paint chips.
Your repair and repaint money goes a long way in Mexico!
Follow the process also on fb Living The Dream.
Peace and love amigos!

Latest adittions to my T4 syncro

 Yesterday I put on a gangstercap over my windshield. Felt I needed do something as there is a void between the sun visors and the rear view mirror that fits a low arctic sun anyday it wants to and my eyes don't like close encounters with that much light :-)

So now I lack is eight steel (stainless, mind you) screws to secure it to each A-bar on each side of the wind shield - I shall have this mod on my rig.

Did my annual trip to Nijmegen, NL, and returned Monday…

Wednesday… It's a humper…

Well, we have had some actual reader comments associated with our blog.  Lisa K winning the first Secret Word contest and last night it was our buddy Jeff who reaped the benefits of reading the blog and cashing in on the blog incentive to read.  I wonder who will be the next individual to cash in on the freebies we are offering?  Only one winner per week, but keep providing us comments besides just telling us the secret…

Sabine Pass, Texas

Camped at the Sea Rim State Park located in the South-East Corner of Texas near Port Arthur.  Port Arthur is the site of a loat of refinery work.  Sabine Pass has a history of being a valuable military asset since it is possible for boats to proceed up this river delta.  It was the site of a Civil War battle that the Confederacy won.   Near the memorial site are several large machines, perhaps they are drilling rigs under construction.

I stopped for barbecue at Vinces in Port Arthur…

Grand Isle, Lousiana

After completing my visit in Alabama, I decided to head to Grand Isle State Park located on the southernmost road in Lousiana.  Grand Isle has a storied history, today it is mostly vacation homes called "camps" built on pillars to allow the flooding to pass undernearth.  Not as I imagined; no tall cypress trees with hanging moss.  The frequent hurricanes keep it trimed pretty flat. The nearby Inter Coastal Waterway is the site of a lot of tug boat activity and they work all night.  It was…

Lake Choctaw, Mississippi

I planned to camp at the Jeff Busby site on the Natchez Trace but it seemed a little too barren and uninviting so I continued on and came across the Lake Choctaw federal campsite, not on the Rand McNally map, in the TOMIBGEE National Forest.  More tall trees, a local secret perhaps.  The camp ground host indicated that he had a nice bunch of regulars that took good care of the place.

 

The campsite ...…

Texarkana, Texas

After spending a night with relatives near Lawton Oklahoma, I proceeded to drive east on US-85.  I wanted to avoid the Inter State Highways as much as possible.  I stopped for the night to camp at Atalanta State Park  near the North-East corner of Texas among some very tall trees. The large lake nearby was formerly called Lake Texarkana, now known as the Pat Wightman Lake.  It was renamed to honor a long time East Texas congressman.…
