Post MAM "Funfest" weekend, June 2-4th, 2017
It's two weeks away, who's planning to attend, and will there be a caravan over to Effingham on Friday??? Inquiring minds want to know...

I'm toying with bringing the '67 Westy, if I can get her un-buried and freshened up. I know it needs a new 12 volt battery, and maybe a brake-bleed... Who knows what I'll show up in?

We are taking the 67. We are leaving Friday morning and might drive into town that evening.

I plan to leave sometime Friday, probably after a late breakfast / brunch.

I just successfully phoned in my (late) registration for the Funfest in almost a week from now. ( www.funfestacvw.com or 866 350-4539 ). It was a breeze. Looking forward to camping with good friends and new ones too right on site!

Thanks to the Yagar's and staff in advance for a nice venue and VW event!

Alone or in a group, at this point I think I'll probably take the back-road route on HWY 40 (lunch stop in Greenville for chow and pie) on Friday...

Just got in from out of town work, so I'm getting my Westy Camper ready to go tomorrow. I just checked the weather and the forecast for the weekend is GREAT!!!

Friday: high 88/ low 72 with sunny skies!

Saturday: high 89/ low 72 with sunny skies!!!

Sunday: high 91/ low 67 with partly sunny skies!

Wooohoooo! A nice forecast for a change! It'll be nice to camp on site all weekend with new and old friends. Get your old VWs out and hit the road for Effingham, IL this weekend. We'll see you there! I plan to caravan alone or in numbers leaving St. Charles at about 10 or 11 am and I think I'll take the slower backroad route on Hwy 40 thru Greenville, IL for lunch and pie, and on into Effingham, IL. If anyone wants to join up, let me know ( bill@bnnta.com ). I'm taking my '67 Westy Campmobile, whether she is ready or not!

Funfest was a great time per usual. Das Box made its first appearance in Effingham, Illionis and I'm sure it will not be the last.

Thanks to Tom Johnson for this excellent faux Gas Station photo. Damn old bus looks too good in this one...
