    sorry to hear about your troubles on this adventure, but hey, I’ve enjoyed following along thru all the awesome photos. Not sure if the distributor is for marine applications 🤪 but if anyone is gonna find the weak link in anything it’s gonna be JJ on SST. 😎 keep it real man and be safe, hope to catch up soon.

    Looks like a great adventure JJ.  I bet Cole had a blast. Guess he fixed his broken valve spring? How about you Glen, think you wa nt to play again?  I sure missed going.  We should really try to make this year’s trip to Moab a non highway event.

    We went to Creig Letchers place in weaverville and fixed our shit up!!  I fixed my leaking ass sump, we borrowed a valve spring tool from Wolfgang and changed Coles valve spring..  Then drove the tool back down to Wolfgang… and then parted ways… We started towards Mitch’s place and Cole and Seth headed North to oregon…

     

    as usual… a rack broke on Shasta.. Coles!!!  So it,s on top of my rack coming back to KCW for some welding.. it broke 4 of the six legs …

    Both of the busses are running perfect!  I am about to go see Jim Cusato and then head to Spencer hot springs again…

    Freedom. 😎

    Looks like a blast, except for that rolling the single cab down the hill part.

     

    Cole’s heads seem like they would be better suited as a door stop.

    I’m sure you guys have read it, but this book: https://www.amazon.com/Baja-Bugs-Buggies-VW-based-off-road/dp/0895861860  Has some practical setup tips for Baja’s and off-road VW’s in general.  Everything from suspension to first aid.  I’m sure some of it is dated material but it makes for some good reading.

    SST! Holy shit! I’m so glad I went! I have never spent that many consecutive days in a split bus. I loved it! Got to do it with a childhood best friend, Seth and his pup Lucy(who I’m sure a lot of you met when I watched her last year) and JJ! He’s one of the best people to road trip with! also, glad I got to finally meet Glenn! I’m glad he came on the trip, he took lots of amazing photos and videos! Can’t wait to see what he has on his camera. It was hard for me to take pics during the SST days. You kindof forget to when you’re hauling ass and having a good time.

    It scared the shit out of me when JJ finally rolled up to Spencer and there was an ambulance behind JJ. I had no clue what was going on… haha glad it was just Glenn! D517B9E9-E4FA-4208-BF67-F384A0BF6C9864A4B294-7B5D-4572-9C5A-954AB253AB6F89C668FA-75CD-4629-8717-1800F66635096C267DF2-8E9B-45E8-97FF-4934B7B0C83324EF6FB8-10B7-41DF-9947-F72C8ADA3FB3I will definitely be back to Spencer…093A1AD5-2B9A-4B93-8577-764C57324DF2onto Nevada City!

Only gas for miles. We camped near here. Very beautiful 71D52BFB-C12C-4F53-B11E-D88F5B516346756B9DC6-DA94-4676-A1C0-5D564F91E597this is what happens when you try to pass JJ and get too close… he roosts your ass… thought I was going to lose a windshield. Luckily just a headlight lense.B9F7A4F0-F18B-421B-8741-B5731C5AF087Where we stayed in Mt Shasta. You can see JJ’s oil leak. This was the morning I found out I broke a valve spring… we came into camp at 1:30am and I thought my valves sounded loose. So I decided I’d do a valve adjustment in the morning. That’s when I found my 2nd cylinder exhaust valve has broken… time for a tow to Craig Letchers.42C987BD-5917-45EF-8875-7BAB020C3DBFDFC20144-1D7A-4602-B7B2-E0B7DEF11DA134899D1D-7F41-47F1-8CC8-44E8A69BCEE22856B2CE-966C-4F6A-B358-4441EEC3556Eluckily even with a busted motor I was still able to hop in with JJ and have lots of fun getting stuck! He got this buried probably 6 times!

I was able to replace the spring without pulling the motor. Was a super quick and easy job once I got the tool! 52BE9D35-8962-4C34-B821-BA8DA381DF38we stayed our last night at summer lake hot springs in southern Oregon. Super nice and we were the only ones there. 20 bucks to camp sucked… but the water felt super nice with it being 10 degrees outside…. 1018FC6B-509D-45F4-9C1D-0ADB1D75DED7took a long time for my bus to start that last morning…. I was worried I was going to blow my oil filter. So I put my propane heater underneath my motor for 20 min and it started a lot easier! Had to keep foot on the clutch until it warmed up or else it would die! Fun figuring all that out. 3105DF69-7B85-4E77-9083-8417905D775EThe last 200 miles of my trip I had to go 30 mph… the highway was all black ice. Some of the worst conditions I’ve ever seen. soooo much longer than it should’ve taken… my back still hurts from the drive. I was so gripped! Glad we made it safe.502B75A6-D9A0-4CBE-82CB-F86DC8F51DD8I ended up doing just over 3000 miles. I think 13 nights in the bus. So fun! Glad I went. Definitely will go again next year! I was already talking to Loren about a route for next year. Needs to be more technical. Everyone gets through no matter what! Even if we have to dig and push. Team work! Everyone should come on this trip! I love my split bus.
