A camping forum for VW bus and camper owners.
So, now I've started a blog about my Westy experience and other miscellaneous stuff.
Unlike other blogs here I've never actually gone anywhere interesting, but if you want to check it out let me know what you think.

I joined the group when I first realized I had to get another Westy. That was over a year and a half ago and last weekend, I got it! Found an 83 Westy Waterboxer in pretty decent shape for the money. It needs some love but by the grace of God, as tough as it is to find a mechanic to work on them around here, I think I found the right people. And surprisingly, they were literally right around the corner. I just ordered what parts he needed…Continue
Got home @ 1am from BBB @ Lake Havasu. My friends bus had a serious breakdown & we had to be towed home but had a great weekend anyway. Even the wait to be rescued was not without it's share of good times. We were looked in on by many a VW's the drove by & the last one was a couple of young guys who stayed until help got there! They played their guitars & sang to keep us entertained & then helped push the bus up on a tow dolly!! A great many thanks were given out yesterday to…Continue

This past summer we made our yearly trip back home to the midwest. I grew up in the Quad Cities, which are in Iowa and Illinois. Home of the John Deere headquarters, and not much else...until the show American Pickers started on the History Channel. I'll admit,…Continue

Looking back, I realized we never finished our review of camping at South Carlsbad State Beach. So, without further ado, pretend it's still August, it's 95 degrees outside and the beach sounds like a lovely weekend get-away. Are you there? Good.
When we last left you, Westi had just saved us $500 by helping us avoid a ticket.
After our positive…Continue

Last week was HOT is Southern California. While much of the country was sipping steaming cups of hot pumpkin lattes in crisp fall air, we were gulping down ice water in a sweltering 97 degrees sun.
With such weather, there is only one thing to do - GO CAMPING!
And so, we we headed off for some RnR in the Santa Ana mountains. The campground was a full 3087 feet above sea level. We were glad Bustache is was ready for a challenge. I'll review our most recent camping…

Or, Bustache and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day - The Finale
Last you left us, Steve, Westi and I were driving Bustache from LA to Orange County in SoCal's "Storm Watch 2011."
Sometimes I intentionally make bad decisions. Take this scenario, for example:
This is me on any given Friday night…

The post I was supposed to have up today isn't ready yet. You know, the Finale to this fine piece of work?
Yeah, a busy and fun weekend left me with no time to devote to my new favorite hobby. What is a blogger to do!?!
Quick! I must employ Survival Strategy #1 - Buy time by razzle-dazzling your readers with pictures of cute babies, monkeys and,…

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
