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.....

Ok. I'm always behind the ball. Nothing available at Paddy's wagon. Do they tolerate doubling up on sites? If so, anyone willing to double?

Hey Full Moonies! I've got to get out camping back with you folks again. Last year, we drove up to Manhattan from Atlanta. This year, we drove a little further to the west and hit up Chicago....and more. Took off last Wednesday. Ended up, Thursday, in Chicago to see the city and meet a cool dude and his wife. Left there and went down to Effingham, IL for the Mid America Motorworks, VW Funfest 2017 show. Nice show, it was. Met and talked and had lunch with some of the guys of the Vintage VW Club of Louisville. Very nice folks. One of the last things I expected to come out of this trip was an award at this show. Celebrity Choice Award. Honored, for sure, about this. Woke up Sunday to head back towards Atlanta and just on a whim, took off on I-70 west bound. Rolled through St. Louis to see the Gateway Arch. After that, we did head home.

A nice little 1,800 miler on this one.

That sounds like an awesome trip Mike. So happy (and a little envious) for you. I am sure your son will carry this memory with him. Keep on trippin' Mike and share with us.

    Thank you, Lishea! Aside from the Tiger Drive-In and another near Macon (which I recommend), my next adventure will be in January when I go to the Buses by the Bridge show in Lake Havasu in Arizona. I can't wait as I'll be driving the bus from here to the show/camp out.
