  I will be easy to find.  My Bus is a very painted up Bay, some say in the 
hippie style, I say in a happy style.  And I spend my time either pushing 
cookies on people or taking photos through the windows of Buses.

    I'm reconsidering option #1.  Bus is running great AND I just checked the 
weather and there will be a North wind on Friday and a South wind on Sunday.  
Perfect for driving an underpowered, high profile vehicle southbound to 
Fredericksburg and back, should have a little push-in-the-rear both ways.   If 
the weather holds I may just throw ALL of my tools in the back, find the most 
recent AAA "We want you back" letter in my junkmail box and point it down I-35. 
 What could go wrong?

    I washed my bus this afternoon for perhaps the 5th time in 22 years - when 
you all see it you will understand why.  I have not met a single one of you 
lunatics in person yet, so I may be asking a lot of dumb questions when I get 
there - apologies in advance.  I will not be hard to find - I have a beat-up 
blue and white bus with a fiberglass high roof and I will have two little girls 
following me around everywhere - it will be their first VW event.  See you

              Just tow it. It would use less gas than driving both. Besides, 
you can still drive it all around Fredericksburg when you get there.

              I am registered for the classic but am on the fence about 
actually going.  A six hour drive in an unproven bus with two small children 
aboard makes me nervous.  Is anyone else leaving from Dallas on Friday noonish?

              My options:

              1.  Go with kids in the bus
              2.  Drive the bus, wife follows in the suburban with kids (wife 
won't like that idea)
              3.  Go in bus by myself
              4.  Load bus on trailer, tow to event to camp with kids (yeah, 
lame but better than #5)
              5.  Don't go, spend weekend working on bus
