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!!😎😎

Plan for today is to get shit done before and after work so we can go exploring in the van tomorrow! No real plan, just gonna drive through the mountains and if we find a nice spot, we’ll stay the night 😁😎
Maybe we will go down towards pike peak? Maybe over towards granby? I hear there is a primitive hot springs in Radium – sorta near Granby- but I also hear this time of year these kind of hot springs are usually flooded…
Van is doing AWESOME!!! Been driving it around town everyday, and starts right up with no issues 😁😁😁 I do see some oil drips at my parking spot… no puddles though!Audrey JonesModeratorApril 1, 2019 at 7:56 amPost count: 161
I’ll keep an eye on the oil, thanks Dad!
yes! Weather is finally cooperating for some camping! I was driving around with the windows down yesterday and it was so awesome!! 😎😎
Thanks Will! A SoCal Beach trip will definitely have to happen- I’m hoping for this summer!Audrey JonesModeratorMarch 30, 2019 at 10:38 pmPost count: 161

That last picture of the fire doesn’t look real!!

Sounds good, will do!!
thanks so much Andy! I really appreciate all the work you’ve done and all the test driving to make sure all is good!!
Hopefully you see JJ and Corporate soon!
I’m “supposed” to wait for them to be home so I can see them when I pick up my van , but it’s going to be tough to wait!! 😁Audrey JonesModeratorJanuary 18, 2019 at 10:12 pmPost count: 161Audrey JonesModeratorJanuary 18, 2019 at 10:10 pmPost count: 161
Give it a good run on I-70 up to Eisonhower Tunnel. That will be a good climb and high altitude test for the cooling system.
That’s the drive I do to get between GJ and Boulder… probably the drive that fucked up the head gaskets before… I wish that part was a little closer than 3+ hours from GJ so he could try it… but I also feel like maybe I should try a different route home sometimes so I don’t fuck it up again… It is a big climb for a lot of the 5 hour drive. Colorado problems… hahaAudrey JonesModeratorJanuary 17, 2019 at 8:35 pmPost count: 161Audrey JonesModeratorJanuary 17, 2019 at 7:58 pmPost count: 161Audrey JonesModeratorJanuary 16, 2019 at 7:50 pmPost count: 161Audrey JonesModeratorJanuary 16, 2019 at 5:47 pmPost count: 161Audrey JonesModeratorJanuary 15, 2019 at 8:58 pmPost count: 161
