    Just got done checking everything-

    the oil definitely doesn’t look like chocolate milk, so that’s good!

    I was able to tighten the clamp almost two turns around, so I’m thinking that was the problem!!

    went to Napa and bought the coolant, came back and saw someone was thinking of me and put some under my seat! So now I have plenty just in case 😁

    ill keep an eye on the coolant, but I’m hoping it was just that loose clamp!

    Ok! I will definitely take a look tomorrow once the sun is out- I bet I can check it! I haven’t noticed spots, but I can double check.

    I’ll also re-check the oil, but I am pretty sure it did not look like chocolate milk… looked normal, but very full.

    Sounds good, I’ll go buy some of that. Thanks!

    So Im gathering it’s ok to drive just need to really keep an eye on that coolant?

    Sounds like corporate is working on coordinating dates, but I’ll be in town the 29-2 if that is an option…

    yes! Make a trip out of it!! Telluride is one of our families favorite places!

    Thank you for working on my van so much Andy!!

    Awesome pictures of what sounds like an amazing trip!!!!! I’m glad JJ and corporate got to tag along for part of it! pretty crazy how much you guys saw in so little time!!

    Gotta love pushing VWs! 🤣 I know I’ve pushed Zack not too long ago…I think it’s required at some point in ownership! Yet somehow it’s never the owner doing the pushing?!? 🧐🧐 oh and the running out of gas part… one day we’ll learn to carry gas with us! But the risk is too fun! 😁😎

    I saw a picture on Instagram today of Kula enjoying the bus near the beach as well! 😁

    Exactly Rusty! Just giving me memories of my childhood!! I’ll survive! Plus Landon needs Volkswagen boot camp, and the engine is already “too” quiet plus the many other luxuries, so the lack of heat is good for him 😁

    I have been checking on the oil and coolant Andy, but I’m glad you brought it up. Oil seems great- plenty in there! But the coolant keeps going low… I’ve added water like you said but it feels like it may be time to add coolent since I have to keep adding water…? Is it possible I’m doing something wrong that’s making it go low?

    Yep, Boulder Canyon! Its beautiful in there! We actually live on Canyon rd. In Town so it’s a super quick drive up! I think I might have to drive it up the canyon to Eldora and snowboard this season sometime! we could have lunch in the van 😁

    yeah, no kidding!! I can’t wait to go camping!! Pretty much as soon as there’s a “warm” weekend 😁

    We took it to get fast food last night so we could park it and eat at the table in the back! 😁😁

    any excuse to hang out in the vanagon 😎

    Awesome, thanks Andy!! YES! The swap worked great!! Zack and I were doing just fine in the traffic… meanwhile there were plenty of BMWs and Range Rovers overheating on the side 🤣🤣🤣

    As soon as I got off work I drove the van up into the canyon a little bit and had a snack at the table in the back! 😁 I need to clean the windows when it warms up a little…

    The vanagon and I are back home in Boulder!!!! The vanagon did GREAT!!!

    My Dad drove his bus and cruised with us to Glenwood for the first leg of the trip home, which was sooo much fun!! I stayed in the back cause I’d leave those guys in the dust with the kinda power I have!! 😁That was maybe the fastest we got for the drive, before Vail all the way to Georgetown was “slow and go” traffic…sitting in 1st gear for six hours… boy did I forget how fun it is to be in uphil traffic in a manual vehicle!😂

    The heat didnt work so great… I was wondering though if it was partly that we were going 0-5mph for most of the drive in 15 degree weather…? We will have to look at that at Christmas maybe… but the heated blanket corporate got me and lots of layers, hat and gloves did the trick just fine!!😁 When the sun was shining it was all good with all the windows!

    When we were sitting in the biggest uphil of the drive (before the tunnel) going 0-5mph, the big airplane sounding fan came on a few times… only for a minute or two at a time… no lights came on or anything… Zack and I pulled over just in case to let both our cars have a little break and the engine was definitely not hot…  It was CLEAN though- still is!! But I’m guessing that fan was just doing its job then, right…??

    Overall it was a great drive!!! The Vanagon did Awesome!!!! I cant wait to take it out more!!!

    Did i mention how much i love my vanagon and how awesome it is?!?!

    SWEET!!!

    Its true!! It will be a nice freedom to have, I never really thought of all that- but very true! I’d definitely love to do a long trip in my van at some point in the future… it’s so damn big I think it really will feel like an apartment on wheels!! Hahaha

    I love you so so much Dad!!! Can’t wait to see you tomorrow!!!! Oh, and my van of course! 😁
