Looks like I'll be driving my '87 Vanagon Westfalia GL instead of my '67 Westfalia. No problems with the '67, but I'll have to leave Sat afternoon for the STL airport to get on an late afternoon flight to DFW and I ain't leavin' the '67 in the employee parking lot for days... Besides the '87 doesn't get out much lately and deserves a turn to shine at Funfest.

I'm in for the Friday "Cara-Bus"--I think Ted and Tim are also planning on it?

Any time/place to meet yet?

This should be nice, a relaxed leisurely caravan on mostly back roads over to Effingham. I'll come into downtown STL on I-70, cross the Mississippi and join onto the passing caravan in my '87 Vanagon Westy. Looking forward to Funfest and dinner with ??? on Friday night at ??? in Effingham...

Bill, where do you think you might pick up the caravan? downtown is out of the way for the both of us..

I may miss out anyway... not sure I'll have my act together in time for the departure time. Syncro is working on chewing up a front wheel bearing, so company may be nice though..

Maybe meet up at the diner.. that's in Greenville I think, right?

Hi Brian,

Glad you'll be trying to go. I was planning to catch the caravan as they passed by just over in Illinois on I-70 somewhere.

I guess we could even go onward on I-70 to the Troy / Hwy 40 exit off I-70 at meet them there. How did you want to cross the river, on I-270 eastbound?

You and I could take I-270 across the Mississippi and cut down on I-55 south to the Troy/Hwy 40 exit where we could meet them. We'll want to be in position there by 10:45 am or so... Call me with any questions. I'm driving/camping in my '87 Westy.

Bill

I'll be hooking up with you cats at the Hwy 40 Exit off 55. I'll be in the Westy. With all the rain forecast I'm not chancing the 61 sitting out in a hail storm! See ya in the morning 10:30-45 ish.

We'll be on our way in the morning!

I'm meeting Dana at the Troy, Ill/Hwy 40 exit and waiting for the West County VW caravan to arrive at 10:30 - 10:45 am. Then backroads to lunch in Greenville.

Despite the threatening weather on Friday evening, I had a great time at Funfest! We relocated our Buses to the lee side of some MAM building and slept out the storm. The event was great, the fields were understandably soggy, so they parked us on the asphaft roads and all was just fine. Great to see everyone!

Thanks again especially to Ted who hauled a huge VW dealership "used cars" sign face to MAM, to eventually be sent to Belgium and hang on the museum wall at the BBT facilities there! Thanks Ted! I owe you!

I'm headed to BBT in Europe very soon for the "Hessisch-Oldendorf Vintage weekend" in Germany and then the "European Bug-In" next to the French/Belgian border. We should have lots of cool photos and wild tales to tell at the upcoming BNNTA event! I can't wait to see Brian Holcomb in action in Europe!
