    We had an awesome weekend camping!!! The van did awesome!!

    Zack went early on Friday and found us a first-come-first-serve site at a little campground called “Sleeping Elephant” in Poudre Valley outside Fort Collins. It was a great spot!! Of course, my phone camera stopped working and I forgot my real camera, so I only have a couple pictures… but what a blast to take my van on a real camping trip!!!! Loved it!!!

    The van is back in action!!! Hip hip hooray!!😍😍😍

    They said the fuel pump relay was defective… plus the fuel tank crossover pipe was dislodged, but we think that had to do with the ride on the tow truck.

    It is idling really well and sounds like it’s just humming!

    I’m going camping this weekend!

    Andy just told me it sounds like the “crank sensor” and it doesn’t sound Subaru related… all good to know! I’m going down to that shop in person tomorrow morning so I can just make them start it and brainstorm with me… feels like they are almost afraid to touch it… if they are, I will send it over to Rocky Mountain Westy tomorrow and they can check it out! Haha

    But Andy has also been kind enough to offer his in person services if all else fails… Andy is the best!!! thanks Andy!!!!

    Sorry to be posting late to the party…

    Going back to the beginning… i was having some weird electrical issues with the van, for example once when I turned the van off and pulled the key out the van continued to run for a good 20 seconds after, and then other times when I turned the van on the fuel pump wouldn’t start but it would when turning the engine off… so I took it into a Volkswagen subaru shop and had them look it over and change the oil while they were at it, cause why not.

    They told me they thought something was possibly wrong with the ignition switch, but not to worry about it too much as long as I make sure everything turns off so I don’t drain the battery. They had a few other things to say that my dad said was no big deal… so I drove the van home, ran some errands later that night, and It was doing great even the electrical was working again! Great!

    Then I packed up the van to go camping for Memorial Day and went to head out and it wouldn’t start, Cranks and cranks and cranks but just won’t fully turn over. I called Andy and he had me check the fuses, those were fine, and had me go around and make sure every plug I could see was all the way plugged in, and wiggling all that around made something happy and it started!!

    I drove it around town, picked up a friend, and then had to get gas… got gas, and couldn’t get it to start again. Sounded the same as before, cranks and cranks and cranks…Tried the same stuff and still couldnt get it to start…

    I just wanted to go camping so fucking bad I had Landon and our friend help push the van to a better parking lot and convinced the manager to let me keep it there for the weekend. I finally got it towed back to that shop last Wednesday, but they haven’t had a chance to look at it yet.

    They have one guy that’s willing to look at it, but they keep telling me they aren’t going to do anything unless they feel confident… not sure what is so different about the engine, but oh well. I gave them Andy’s number, but I’m hopeful it isn’t anything too big, cause it was just running totally fine until this suddenly happened. Even with the electrical stuff before it was still at least running fine…

    I wonder, does Rocky Mountain Westy work on vans like this? Just as a back up…

    im sure we will get it all figured out eventually!!! This is why I call her Goldie(locks)… she’s gotta have everything juuuussst right!! 😉😉 she wouldn’t be a Volkswagen without a little drama right?!?!

    Love these pictures!!! It looks so green out there- some of the pictures by the hot springs look almost tropical!! 😎

    The only perk of all this snow and rain is all the green 😍

    Love you too Dad!!!! Can’t wait to take it easy and do some more road trip together!! 😎😎

    Sounds great, Andy!! If the trip includes a weekend at all I will make sure I’m there- or I can take a day or two off for a trip! Starting in August I’ll be living there so I can be around anytime 😎

    Going to be a GREAT summer indeed!!😎 thanks guys!!

    Just have to make an appreciation post about my van!! I’m so thankful for Andy, JJ, Corporate and the rest of the KCW crew/family for working out all the kinks in my van so that I can now have a super reliable daily driver!!! No more oil drips, coolant level is staying the same, no chocolate milk oil (now that I actually know what that looks like🤣) just starts right up and takes me anywhere I wanna go!! 😍 I can’t help but have a giant smile on my face the whole time I’m driving it… being in my van is my happy place 😊

    While it’s been a fun challenge to parallel park the Van in downtown Denver and Boulder…I’m super excited to camp as much as possible this summer!!! 😎😎

    Had and saw lots of smiles yesterday driving around in my van 😁😁

    We headed down to Colorado Springs, parked in the Garden Of the Gods Park and made some lunch in the van before we went hiking! Then we made our way up into Pikes Forest past Woodland Park, then up near Mueller State Park found a bit of BLM land to camp on! It was an awesome day of exploring and driving through really beautiful parks and forest areas!

    The Van did AWESOME!! Zero problems! The engine looks nice and clean, no oil drips at the camp site, coolant level looking good! It was idling low this morning being so cold and so high up but with a hit of help she started purring on her own in no time!!

    First camping trip was a success!!😎😎

    (Pictures coming soon with more service😁)
