Will there be a southern swing, or will you be passing through GA, in late September/Early October? Funds are too tight now for a May visit, but I would likely be able to save up by later in the year.
You'll get another chance in the fall. Start saving up. Check the couch cushions and dryer.

Say Colin, why the big gap in May? Vacationing in Atlanta on the shores of the Chattahoochee?
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue, I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace. Where never lark, or even eagle flew. And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod, The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

Did you really ask this on March 10th?

Anyways, the Itinerary was to officially begin at the end of May.
Then appetite asked if he could hire me for three days in April, and I said yes.
Then retro1302 said, "geeze, I am only minutes from there, can you please help me get set up for summer season," and I said yes. Then it was apparent to me that it was a major fuel burn to get there from Pensacola to Noo Joisey and back to Pensacola. Then it looked like the book was getting completely scrambled because I have been staring at it too long but getting pulled away from it in a deadly distracting way, so I said f**k it, I am so poor take the work take the work take the work. Then I said, "all is lost," and look at how the schedule just flows around all of my hopes like lava. So you are actually on the return trip from appetite's.

[quote="weisswurst"]Hi Colin, it's diesel Vanagon Jeff!, not sure if you are in a few days early for Jivermo's day but there is a VW show and shine that
I could use an extra driver for the Currywurst, (that is if you did not want to take your bus to it instead :pirate: )
It's in Fort Laud on the 13th (a sunday)
http://southfloridavwclub.com/show-n-shine
We did not actually enter the judging just parked out in the field and had really nice time there last year
and my son won a new bike in the raffle they had.
Also thought I would make sure Jivermo and any other south Florida guys know about the show.
Jeff in South Florida




Show was yesterday was anyone else from the Florida people up there?
Was not able to move around much and network due to the fact that it
rained all day but we had fun and my boy won the bike raffle! (yes again)
He now has as many bikes as I have Vanagons, like father like son!

just discovered 3 more bus owners (including on for sale) and a bug owner in town today.
If you want, I can see if any of them would like to have you pay a visit to. Looks like you have some time.

I love the Itinerant Itinerary time of year. It is very entertaining to sit and read through the posts--trials, travails, and all. I do desperately need an IAC visit, but it will have to wait until the end of the summer if it can even be fit in there. Until then I look forward to all of your (plural) experiences being posted for our reading and viewing pleasure.

That's just a picture though, here's the actual map.

Hey! For fun, here's a fictional elevation profile of the route. "Fictional" because we know the route shown is at best a vague approximation.

Ludwig--1974 Westfalia, 2.0L (GD035193), Solex 34PDSIT-2/3 carburetors.
Gertie--1971 Squareback, 1600cc with Bosch D-Jetronic fuel injection from a '72 (E brain).

Thanks whc03grady. I always love seeing the Great Circle this time of year. Excited that I'm finally on it...

I am intimately familiar with every single one of those spikes. They all represent 3rd gear.
Last year I had a 2nd gear just shy of 10,400 feet outside of Denver.

July ?? Social Call dingo/DjEep/skindaddio etc...... Eugene OR

I like this date. Portland Pile-on? Hah! I've got my eye on it though.

7/26/14 could easily find me in Eugene, it's the night before the big Marathons. Cheryle's daughter Cedar, will be running. Third time I think. She's invited and her participation is financially facilitated. She places.

Hope it meshes.
