Photo engagement

About a month ago, I got a call from a couple. Big Blue sent them my way, they wanted to rent my bus for an afternoon. They got engaged and wanted a photo session with the bus.

The back story is that he had a bus that was broken, fixed, broken, fixed, broken, fixed... bus pilots know this story all to well. He eventually sold it when money was tight (a story even MORE familiar) but misses it.

So I polished up red for the couple, the photographer did an excellent job.

Bus City - Movie night

It's one of my annual "must go to" events. The weekend before Memorial day, the school house canyon campground opens up their site - just for us.

A few years back, several of us discussed a movie night. It would require a projector, a sound system, a screen, and a good movie. This year it happened. The Bus movie was a good excuse to test out the projection system.

One year we will curate the "how to fix" videos and advertisments, and run through the classic ads.
Of course we did the annual Korbel tour and tasting.

Parked at Korbel were several of these funny shaped "only a mother could love" cars. Apparently, the "ultravan" company of Oakland California made these hideous things for a short time, and a small group of insane people restore and drive them. Sounds familiar...

This is my annual excuse to put up the tent, I'm not the only one who does it.

See you next year.
