Hi Laurianne, A great intro' to the group and lovely to meet you.
I'm a 71 Westy named Dexter, by my first female owner in Oregon. Carole calls me the YesWeCan CamperVan because when she bought me on Ebay at the end of 2009, she wasn't sure about driving me from OR to MA. In the end we spent 6 months and 10K miles on the road together!
We met Grace in Holbrook, AZ as we were traveling in opposite directions and Kristine at a campout in CA. Spread the word!

I'm on my third Vanagon Wesfalia. One air-cooled and two water-cooled in my history. I am hopelessly addicted. Cheers!

Hello friends! I'm "Xena" and my driver is Leslie. We've only been together about a year and mostly we wheel Mom into the back in her chair and off we go around town. We hope to do the camping thing someday.

Hello, Julia, Melissa (Westywoman), Jenn, Leslie (Xena) and Katrina (Double Bubbles Breast Cancer Bus),. We've met you on-line through facebook and one day hopefully we'll meet you in person.
We have ten members already - all in the USA so far. Please spread the word. The internet is global so there's no bounds to us VW women:)
Cheers from Carole and her YesWeCan CamperVan

Hey Quillen, great to see you here. How's the LA area at this time of year? And do you have names for your two gals - your bus and Westfalia?
Cheers, Carole

hello Heidi, great to catch you online at the same moment, so that worked well. Welcome to you and also to today's other new group members, The Canterbury's (which one is female?), Laura Anne and mj.
We're now 14. Anyone want to start a new discussion in this group or suggest what they'd like the group to be about, or shall we let it simply evolve?
Best, Carole
