Hi! My name is Carol. I am looking for a reliable and reasonably priced VW mechanic in the Savannah GA area. I have a 1971 bus that has dead AZ tags and a salvage title. I need to have it inspected in order to license it. To pass inspection it needs to have the blinkers fixed, neither works, they did in the beginning (4years ago) then, something happened and they stopped. Need to make sure the brake lights are good too. My horn needs to work and my right windshield wipers needs some minor stuff done to it. I haven't been able to drive it for almost 2 years but she runs well, just needs to get rolling again. Anyone know where I can find help? I'm use to having my bus family in Tucson around and never having her idle for long but, I don't personally know anyone on the east coast. Once I get her rolling, I hope to meet some of you folks at some of the camping trips in the future !

My mom was doing some cleaning and found pictures from 2003 when I was living in my bus, being a slacker and working at subway where I got a free 6 inch sub every day I worked, which made grocery bills less, and the beer fund more!
the red bus is mine, the green bus was a friend I made one day at work when I asked if he needed a free place to park his bus for the weekend, which was very hard to do in a resort town without the cops knocking on your door at 2:30 am.
I found my parking place at the dead end of a road on top of a mountain in Old Forge NY. the remains of a cabin are off to the left of my parking place. it burned to the ground one winter when the roads where bad enough the trucks could not reach it. so I took over the place untill it got too cold.

Nice bus! I always wanted to do that but I had kids too early and the ex and current wife wont do it, so I camp as much as possible!! I did get the ex to live in it for a week with me while moving back from Montana. Even with the break downs, I loved it!! Here are a few.

Well a funny thing happened, I met a girl!
She was visiting the Adirondacks for a few weeks doing hospice care for a woman that grew up in the ADKS but moved to Colorado. She walked into my life one day while i was managing the rental dept for a canoe and kayak company. she wanted to rent a boat, but did not have a credit card for a damage deposit. So i recommended she come back after 6 when we closed and i would take her out on the river for a sunset kayak paddle. I spent 3 days showing her around the ADKs and without even a kiss, she packed up and flew back to Colorado. I was in love, quit my job, sold the bus, my snowmobile and my Chevy Blazer, I packed my life into rubbermaid totes. and headed west in my Dodge pick-up.
We now have 2 kids and will be celebrating 7 years together this year.
I miss the bus, but it was a good trade off.

I had to laugh at the "totes" reference...
A similar thing happened to me once Jason. I met a girl and fell in love too. Ended up selling almost everything I owned and packed the rest in totes and my bus and moved. Small world eh?
