I'm camping with my 2 year old again this year, it's great as long as Mom 
chases him all over the place while I drink the beer : )

Amy [my wife] and I just had a conversation about T@P last night.

She's going on a moms trip the weekend before at Port Aransas with 2 of
her best friends.

She actually asked if I wanted to go to T@P by myself, sans wife and
small children.

My answer was HELL YEAH!!!

So yes, I am going.  I love my kids dearly, but camping with a 2 year
old is not fun any way you slice it.

Can't wait for October!

  Will you be at Paul's show?   Or Bug Swarm next month?   We will
be at both and will have to make a point of meeting you.

So, is Lu your husband Jane?

Never met ya'll.

It's a pink 23 right?

    Paul, can't thank you enough for selling the '66 to Steve and

loves that bus and we had the best time on our trip to CO with S/S.   
Even the breakdows were a lot of fun at least for Sharon and me.  
Can't wait for the next road trip.

My 66 that I sold to Steve and Sharon and they sold to Lu and Jane and
just got back from Colorada in it had a green under side that was as
clean as a baby's hieny . the inside floors and and walls and
everything was the same green from the factory. But I think that it was
a m code thing.You gotta love those clean Nevada busses.Still kickin my
***ss for selling it.
