Hi-ask the web site admin, Big Blue, to add a link for this group on the home page.

It's on there.

Good to see some Michigan participation.

Todd - Should we call this group "Buses by the Beach - Michigan Camping" to catch all Michigan VW events?

Some are from Northern Indiana - like me!

Jenn and I got on the BBB mailing list about 6 months before we moved out of the Chicago area. I always wanted to go to the Bus Brrr in February...maybe one year we'll be visiting around that time and will head on over!

Big Blue's Driver, I guess I don't mind if you want to use Buses By the Beach as the group to place Michigan VW events under.

Naw - it's fine. I just wanted people to know that you were in Michigan. But I guess they'll figure it out.

Do you guys put on the Bus Brrrr as well?

Pete O - I have a Northern Indiana joke but that would violate the "Be Nice" rule.

Keep posting your events in the event section. I go back about twice a year and would love to catch an event with you guys!

Big Blue's Driver,
Yes, Bus BRRR is one of our events. We put on three main events and several smaller get togethers a year. The three main fund raising events are Bus BRRR (February), Bus Benefit (May) and Bus BOO (September). We would love to have you join us sometime. If you come back to Michigan give me a heads up and I can let you know if there is something going on. We go to several music festivals in Michigan and we usually arrange an area just for the buses to camp together for the weekend. It is a great time!
Wishing you miles of smiles in Big Blue!

Hey, Big Blue - some would say N. Indiana IS a joke! ;-)

Todd is right, there is much to do in the Spring, Summer and Fall around here. Around the end of February, we are so desparate to get out that we just hit the road and camp out at Pokagon no matter what. Have been there a few years with the weather at -5 and the next year at 2 above. Scotch whiskey helps.

You know that I am kidding. I love Indiana. It is great state filled with really cool people. Pete on the other hand might be questionable. :-)
