    I expect that John will use high pressure compressed air to blow out debris – as common practice.

    did some cutting and dissecting of lips… Had to cut out an outrigger and jackpoint, which is  pain in the arse with the floor in…. 😎  Probably good.. it was FULL of dirt in there between the jack point and outrigger…

    anyhow.. Progress was made!!!

    Hey Brent… recognize that comb??  It was in the heat tube… you must have dropped it in the dash vent as some point..  😎

    WOW!  She logged a LOT of miles on dirt roads in Idaho’s backcountry in the 70s and 80s – looks like she took a lot with her!

    Yeah – that fix on the outrigger and jack point looks like a BIG pain!

    No idea on the comb.  Ha!  Might be a leftover from the woman I bought the bus from in 1973…

    Here are some pics from when we took our baby to Alaska for our honeymoon in 1975.  We got married in the Cuyamaca mountains east of San Diego and drove over to the SoCal coast and spent the only night of our two month trip in a hotel – for the rest of the trip we lived in our VW baby!
    We drove up the coast all the way to Vancouver and then north in B.C. to Dawson Creek – mile zero of the Alcan Highway.  The Alcan wasn’t paved in 1975 – it was 1500 miles of gravel and potholes.  We passed LOTS of heavier vehicles broken down along the way, but our bus just trundled on!
    We covered the front with cardboard and screen over the headlights and windshields – there were LOTS of rocks being thrown around!
    In the middle of the Yukon we paid a bit over $1/gal for gas – outrageous in 1975!  Once we arrived in Alaska we splurged on a hamburger ($3 – also outrageous in 1975) then spent weeks driving all over – to the Arctic Circle, Denali National Park, and south along the panhandle before heading back down the Alcan into the Yukon where we cut west through the Alaska Range (fantastic!) to Haines, AK where we boarded the ferry for our return trip south.  Got off in Sitka, Petersburg and finally at Prince Rupert, BC.
    Then we headed home to Idaho – two months and ten thousand miles later!
    Definitely a trip-of-a-lifetime in our beloved Westy!
