"This combi is not scrap"

This BD has to be one of the straightest ones I ever saw in person. Built at Jason Stratton's shop in Florida for Gerson himself. Took these pics in Amersfoort at the BD gathering in April. Mr "Funky Green" brought it from the US to the Netherlands, and took it back to the ClassicS later on! Read all about it here. Hats off for this stunning bus and all involved! Just read at KCW that the Ex-Suicide-Door BD23 also made it into Jason's shop, I hope he'll start a Samba thread soon...!

Wet Wedding

Took some very close friends to their wedding last weekend. I try to get around rain wherever I can, but in this case I had to risk it -  and lost...started in sunshine and ended up in heavy showers. The INSIDE of my van was soaking at the end of the day. At least I had a safe parking spot during the ceremony itself....and an excellent party after I returned the van to its home shelter.
