hippie vans

that's what my son calls these. i saw them on our trip to florida, and quickly snapped this shot for him. he thinks it would be so cool to have one when he turns 16. he has it all planned out--he'd take all the seats out (except for the front), put in a wood floor, and install a big bike rack for his cycling.
i hate to break it to him, but it's not gonna happen.
BEEN a dub lover for too long.... nice shot!!

My sisters and I have always wanted to buy a van like this. We had one before (yellow) when I still about 4 but it burned down. I haven't actually asked my Dad why.

Hi Brett!! The VW vans are amazing - you can drive over sand at the beach with them. My daughter however loves minis.

Forgot to mention I have my "big ride" this Sunday. Have been training hard and - while not in the same level as your hubby Mike's mega mega ironman triathlon, it will be the hardest ride I have ever done. Monster hills and 100miles (160km). Goal? To finish :=)

They were definitely a favorite of some people, and it is kind of cool when you see one today all restored.

I loved your commentary with this! Sounds as though you're on a wonderful trip (or perhaps just back, as you said you hadn't been writing.) Love your picture of the flag by the water's edge, too. Not a lot of computer time, but wanted to drop by! Thanks for the wonderful note, and we can always use the prayers! Thanks!
