    Every VW guys aspiration is to have their build in a magazine..  I understand…  Probably not his first I bet.. ??  He has built it to be the trail BOSS…

    I am a Black Dragon virgin… 😎 I imagine it will be a slow

    I get all excited when I think of rallying offroad in a bus, especially with other buses!!!  I should just cool my jets,…. 😎  I am going to find me some maps so I can  explore without getting too lost.. 😎

    I’ll be there Thursday for sure!!  Neither Corporate or I have to work.. 😎

    Been a wild ride, but it got me here 😎

    unfortunately I am stuck going to Hawaii for a week. Feeling pretty good about the new engine in the split. Thought this was a pretty cool way to check clearance of the engine and trans 😂

    I have a lot of work ahead of me to finish Kassies Syncro when I get back, March campout happened way faster than I anticipated.57A2E5D1-AF86-4DAE-BDC7-8E9C5E229865

    I’m gonna tag along in my ranger, set up a sleeping bag in the camper. I like to rally my shit, that said I’m likely to break something if I take my bus & I promised momma a road trip for our anniversary the following weekend.

    38°51’09.7″N 110°48’03.8″W https://maps.app.goo.gl/qHCfs1AfA9HMYbVE8?g_st=ic let’s go with this… if we all decide to change it up while there, then we’ll change. I definitely won’t be picking on any buses, plenty of seat time in stock 2wd split buses in the swell. Owner of buses are fair game though 😂3921804E-BA52-468A-979A-7F185F7430EB96EC6A80-2F05-4231-B924-737D9B6B10E52C6CEE54-8C6B-4FA5-9489-797ACCA3E546Just popped the new old engine in the bus last night🤞🏼 D5B6305C-9B21-4DD8-9E53-2BAD9F71AD9E

    bringing the meet-up spot back to the front page for you guys!! I’m told this is going to be a gnarly bus trip!! JJ recommended I not take Greta… 😅

    Every VW guys aspiration is to have their build in a magazine.. I understand… Probably not his first I bet.. ??

    Figured there was some discussion going on. Not my first, I have done the Car Show/ Magazine bus and could never enjoy it the way I wanted. Its cool this bus will be in some magazines but not the main purpose and honestly its keeping me from enjoying it fully. I also do want to go out and fuck it up right away! I have invested too much time and $$$ to do that, I want to get out and use it without coming home and constantly fixing it. I already have a Jeep for that and do not need two of them.

    That camp link is probably unlikely, huge storm just went through that area and there are some nasty ruts that can swallow a bus to the frame. Talking to Kris and mentioned that we should try and meetup in the Buckhorn draw area since its easier to find each other. I am going to help Kris post on socials today and see what interest we have.

    I’m a lousy excuse for a VW guy as I have no aspirations of a magazine spread. 😓 Maybe the next owner of my bus can get it featured 😂 my poor personality really hurts my buses image. 

    Its great that Jason is getting the attention for his build though. His bus is awesome and a lot of effort was put into it 👍🏼 Excited to see what it can do.

    Yeah I’m not tied to any one spot out there so suggestions are welcome. Buckhorn is definitely closer to Black dragon. Anywhere in the swell is great.

    WOOOHOO…  I’m getting some people up in here!!!!!   Buckhorn area.,.. I think that might be were I camped last time.. 😎

    I was thinking this was gonna be more of a offroad rally… Like Cole organized a few times.. Start at one spot, end up way north or south at another spot each day??   but maybe it’s just a campout?  same spot all nights?

    I don’t think is much of a plan except go explore the area in the Swell and hit Black Dragon. Probably find a place to meet for Thursday and Friday Morning for those not diving together. As we get closer and find out who is coming on what day we will find a meeting place.
