Hi all,

I am an older software engineer geek, but love the outdoors, hiking and camping - especially in the Sierras where I live.

My wife and I have been VW Bus/Vanagon owners since 1978 (my wife's 1968 camper - we rebuilt ourselves too many times). In 1983 bought one of first Vanagon Camper water-cooled at the Westphalia plant, and got to camp around Germany and Austria before it shipped to the U.S. - but it was a lemon (water problems). Eventually we replaced it with a 1987 new-ish Vanagon Camper we still own. Recently we upped the failing engine to a GoWesty 2.4L to revive it - so we-be-campin-again.
