Post Roy Jonas is coming back to STL! (well, for a weekend)
Looks like our buddy Roy Jonas will be coming back to visit us in August (21-24th), and in his honor, I believe that Kent will be hosting another of his famous "garage parties" so we can all see Roy again. I'll let Kent come on and confirm the details, but it will sure be nice to see Roy again! Clear your calendar that weekend!

I'll be gone to CO and NM for adventures in the bus, other wise I would probably come up for that. Always good to see Roy.

Too bad he couldn't push it back a couple weekends and do BNNTA again.

I agree! I'd give him my '67 Westy for his personal use for BNNTA if that could happen! How about it Roy? I imagine he has a family function of some sort to attend, and I believe he is keeping Saturday open to hang out with the VW gang...

Hey guys!
Yea, I'll be in town for a couple days as my oldest daughter is graduating nursing school. Her graduation is Saturday morning but I've blocked out the rest of Saturday for hanging with the micros. Will be awesome to see you all and soak up some of that humidity. Wish I could make it for BNNTA but I've got a lot going on lately...we've been renting for the last 3 years and were going to buy a house when Dawn is finished with med school next year but the owner wants to sell and is not renewing our lease...we need to be out in the next 30-60 days. So we've decided to buy a house now and we are on the hunt ...wish us luck for a big garage :) My youngest daughter is due to deliver my third grandchild in the next week or so and meanwhile I've been busy thrashing the metalwork on a 1959 panel for the AZ Bus Clubs Jerome Jamboree raffle bus every spare minute of the last month. Should be ready for the paint shop by next weekend. Pretty much haven't had time to fart lately so I'm looking forward to a long weekend in St Louis.
Later,
Roy

Awesome to see Roy again yesterday. We all got to catch up on all their latest adventures out West in Arizona! A huge thank you goes out to our host Kent Z. for opening up his shop for the garage party. Awesome grub (thanks to Dana and Susan for the yummy peach pie to take back to Kathryn) and the brats were great! Good to see a lot of VW friends, longest distance winner was Daniel from CoMo. Thanks also to Russ and Jody for the invite to Jody's birthday bash afterwards. Cool new (to them) home in Maplewood! The Micros even took up an on-the-spot collection to benefit our awesome local community radio station KHDX and we got a "club thank you" from the DJ on the radio in a matter of minutes from the phone call...

We got to work on Kent's camper, and as usual, Roy figured out that the needle valve in the top of the carb was gunked up and was stopping fuel flow to the carb bowl. A couple of sharp taps and it freed up, and we got his fan belt tension better too. Kent's all ready to go to BNNTA in a couple of weeks now!

Thanks again to everyone who could make it, and especially to Kent for his hospitality! A great afternoon! Hopefully some of you can post a few photos of the festivities here...

Good to see everyone for a quick bit. Glad you guys came and had a couple cold ones at the new place. Nice to see Roy and the rail back on the streets as well. Thanks Kent always a cool time.

Was great to everyone, especially Roy J. Glad all is going good out in AZ for him and the Jonas family.
Thanks again KWZ for hosting,wish we could have made it a longer visit,but Caroline and I had to get back home to momma.

Caroline & I took off after work friday night in the '78 westy and camped down on the Osage river near Rich Fountain . We hit up B&C for some goodies then hit up the back roads to make our way to STL for the garage party. Made it home @1700 . Just about 350 mile little adventure in the westy.
