Hardly Strictly VW's

The Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival is a free music festival in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, every first weekend of October. It brings headliners, small groups, up and coming artists, and several annual acts. (I watch Emmylou Harris every year.) The story is that the festival started out small and was "strictly Bluegrass", but the sponsor wated bigger, so the festival was expanded to "Hardly Strictly". With that in mind, I bring you the Hardly Strictly VW's camping on the street. Much thanks to the SFPD who apparently look the other way as long as you are not obnoxious.

Since I live a block away, it's never a problem for me to go, but for others, travel is a must. So inspite of this sign:

They park along Fulton and make due with the accommodations they drove.

The VW's:

And the hardly-strictly VWs.

VW's of Austin

I have a crush on Austin, Tx. The music, the food, the people, the bats, the music, the music. There are stages in the Airport. And freaking amazing Tex mex and barbcue that you could binge on for weeks at a time.

Being a college town with lots of open minded people, and a thriving art scene, there are of course, lots of VW buses. I didn't get too many pictures - my hands were full of food - but I did get these.

This beauty was being driven out of a school for the deaf - the two people in the photo are signing to each other.

But this monster was my winner of the trip:

I didn't get to try the Freebird Burrito, I was still too stuffed on the Al Pastor taco from Guerros. Next time.

I have another VW. I know it's a sickness. I'm cutting and pasting the post that I put on the samba: The Back story: My grandpare...
