I would like a mobile version of the FMBC site, even if it meant losing ALL data and starting over.

Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

I am on the fence.

I have 2 "Westys", same year, same color scheme, 1 full camper and a weekender.
I am selling the weekender for $6000

or use as downpayment on a VWsynchro-camper (4x4).

I originally bought the weekender for parts for my camper, but then it kept running so well after i gave it new cylinder heads, new steering fluid pump, shocks.....

Another wonderful campout! The leaves are turning color, the air is crisp and the season is right! This is a campout where we all bring an interesting choice of brew and set a few out on a big old picnic table and we all get to sample the many choices.
Blue Rocks Campground is in Lenhartsville, Berks County Pa., about 90 minutes from my home. My daughter and I set out Friday afternoon and naturally stopped a Dietrich's Meat Market for some bratwurst and bacon. Got into camp well before dark and was welcomed by plenty of old friends, as well as some new faces. Set up camp, had a little dinner, and my daughter, a college student who doesn't sleep while at school, fell asleep on the back seat of the bus, while I made my way to the campfire. Relaxed and played some music with Brian, a.k.a. Bassghost. Stayed up late laughing and catching up with friends, which was very necessary since this has been a fairly light camping season for us. There was a little rain, but not enough to dampen our fun.
Saturday we arose at leisure and the sun played hide and seek all day, but we had a big pile of firewood to keep us warm. Potluck dinner/lunch (linner?) came together a bit after three, and I've said this before, but I love camping with my Moonie family because they can COOK. A fabulous meal with the only regrets being the items I was too full to try. We held the meal early so we would have the time (and belly room) for the annual beer tasting, held at 5. In the interim, the kids went trick or treating, while us lucky grown-ups washed the dishes. The beer tasting came together, as it always does, and was greatly enjoyed by all. There is something inspiring about a big table filled with beers, ales, pilsners, and even some wines. The afternoon turned to evening, then night, and we kept the fire cooking. I was treated to the company of some old friends with whom I played music for a few hours. We stayed up late, burned all the firewood, cooked bacon on the fire, talked, laughed, planned, imbibed, and generally did what we do at campouts. A very relaxing time, and on Sunday as we all drifted towards home, we said goodbye to another season even as we tried to find available weekends to sneak in one or two more campouts. Keeping fingers crossed, hope to see you all out there soon.

Been far too long since I've made a campout. Sadly with my current job and expensive racing hobby that takes up most of the weekends I don't see me making another anytime soon. I do know that if and when I ever do show up again that I'll always be welcome with open arms even if I'm sleeping in the bed of my pickup. This was always my favorite campout in the best campground with the best crowd of friendly people.

I miss my old buses.

was waiting for the Bassghost video.......

My summary

This past Bustoberfest at Bluerocks was a huge success despite the questionable forecast. We had over 20 buses and vans. While this was not our biggest year, we did raise a record $500 for PACS (a Phoenixville, PA area foodbank). Katy Feddish (now a middle schooler) single handedly organizes a fund raiser for PACS. We help her reach her goal with not only the raffle proceeds, but also a collection of dry goods as well. Go Westy donated many awesome gifts for us to raffle.

To prepare for a show stopping weekend, we hung two super huge tarps that worked out perfectly, despite some high winds. For the most part we had a little misting and sprinkles, but the bulk of the rain missed us! Thank you mother nature. We were able to burn all of the wood. Thank you LiMBO for helping us defray the cost of the firewood with your donation.

Saturday is always the big day for activities. This year, we flipped the festivity times. We decided to hold the potluck meal earlier than usual. Our “linner” was at 3:30. When the children went trick or treating at 5pm, then it was the adults time to enjoy the beer and wine tasting. We had a wonderful evening jam session around the fire with Bryan, Joe, Dave and Emil on the bongo.

It was a great weekend, complete with good friends. Thank you all who came.

Can’t wait for next year!
