A camping forum for VW bus and camper owners.
We've had countless good days in the Bustache. But this post is about the worst day we've ever had in the Bustache.
It was early March, and Steve and I had just spent the weekend with my sister and her wife in Joshua Tree. For those of you who have never been there, Joshua Tree is in the desert about 180 miles east of LA. It's a weird and wonderful land with wacky trees and wonky rock formations - as if it was created by Dr. Seuss himself. We hiked, climbed rocks and cooked some…

My dad is hilarious. Not the obvious kind of hilarious a la Adam Sander or Robbin Williams or Jim Carrey. More of a subtle surprising hilarity that catches you off-guard.
In fact, "funny" probably wouldn't be a characteristic many people would associate with him. He's a proud introvert and engineer (shocking to see those two words associated, I know!). He's often described as smart, thoughtful,…Continue

As another weekend greets us, I thought come back to the original purpose of this blog - To bring people together, just as the Bustache intended.
You might have noticed the "I've seen the 'Stache!" tab on our blog. It's a connection tool that we hope gets lots of use in the future.
The Bustache is like one big "Come say hi. Sit down. Stay awhile. Share your story. Take a Picture."…

We took Bustache to get his breaks
checked last weekend. On our way back from Ventura a couple of weeks ago, we noticed Bustache making some peculiar noises every time we slowed to a stop. Sometime it was a high-pitched squeaking; sometimes it was a more alarming “thump, thump, thump.”
We brought him back to the same mechanic we took him to before our Yosemite trip, and the moment we walked in, he asked us “How’d it go?”
“He made it to Yosemite!” Steve…

We are certainly not the first people to discover the joy of VW Bus ownership. Hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the open road in a combi and have experienced the magic. The earth-shaking rumbling of the engine, the reverberation of its “aerodynamic” body responding to the wind, the excitement of accelerating from 0-60 in 11 minutes… What? This doesn’t sound like the enchanting encounter alluded to before?
You’re right. It doesn’t. But it is. I promise, it is! And…Continue
