Days One one and Two - Camping

I finished packing when UPS shows up with a tent. I don't need to bring a tent, I have the bus and the side tent, but my wife might want it, so why not? It goes in the last place I have any room, and I'm out the door, across the bridge, and on my way to Napa to meet Big Blue.

We worked our way to the lake, and I did a little engine testing through the turns on the hill. Works just fine! So does the suspension. Just Saying. ;)

We found our spots near John "Tent of Doom" La Torre, and had a beer with the rest of the usual suspects before zonking.

There were a few newbies, Brian and his sweet set up "ready for anything mobile", and John enticed a friend to show up in their tear drop trailer.

Fall Finnon Fest was not as hot as last year, nicely mellow, and and excellent chance to say good bye to joe who is off to China for at least six months.

Fall Finnon Fest - Road Trip

I'm off to the annual "harvest moon Fall Finnon Fest end of the summer why not camp out" tomorrow. There should be about 10 Busses there.

Immediately after, I'm actually taking a vacation after a couple of months of vicious travel. In the spirit of to much travel, I'll be traveling. :)

Road Trip to Ft. Collins, in the Bus, trying to take the slow route.

I'll try and post pics as I go, but likely will make a post well after I'm done.

In the meantime, here are a few drive-by shootings (tm big blue) from Europe.

This is a hightop California Westy that is not available in California.

I've never seen these delivery trucks before, also seen in cologne.
