I would like a mobile version of the FMBC site, even if it meant losing ALL data and starting over.

Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

I am on the fence.

I have 2 "Westys", same year, same color scheme, 1 full camper and a weekender.
I am selling the weekender for $6000

or use as downpayment on a VWsynchro-camper (4x4).

I originally bought the weekender for parts for my camper, but then it kept running so well after i gave it new cylinder heads, new steering fluid pump, shocks.....

Ok. I'm always behind the ball. Nothing available at Paddy's wagon. Do they tolerate doubling up on sites? If so, anyone willing to double?

after an idyllic blast through the domesticated wildlands of southeastern Pennsylvania, we arrived after-fashionably late, just in time for the freakshow to start at busses by the depot. the parts I ordered will not be in for awhile, so there was no rush to get to the open house, though I do regret not being able to go and thank the depot crew for another happy year of good parts and past years of good parts and friendship. the really cool thing is that they came to the campout, set up camp, and stayed. by chance, bluebird and I happened to miss the potluck luck, though I was told by reputable sources that the key lime pie was really good. i'll try some the next time I see it. I did manage to let busdepot know we made it and he looked like he was enjoying the vibe. after catching up on all of the news, the creek boaters said the water was the highest they'd seen on the creek, and talking shop with the motorheads, I was able to pay my respects to the spirit world at the Lenape trail marker the park stranger had shown me oh so many moons ago. from there it was straight to moonie council where many new tales were told. there were many people at this event who none of us knew, so the other tribes were enshrined in their council fires as were we in ours. when I asked the native americans permission to travel the land, I never thought that their consent would mean as much as it has. the night winds brought out the restless spirits, while the house band favored the music of three dog night., I knew the words and sang a missing verse albeit quietly and in passing. it was the first time that the people I camp with noticed the winds, I've seen worse. this was not bad enough for a spirit whistle, but I left some sage to smudge as an insurance policy for those who stayed overnight.
all in all, a really good time with good friends. hope all your travels are as fun as mine.

see you on the road - oatmeal

Fabulous night! Your spirit pleasing sage must have worked as my weather report showed various passing showers overnight, none of which materialized! We woke up high and dry albiet a little chilly. We were able to manage to be one of the last to leave again. Those of us attending Blue Rocks next weekend parted already planning the next pot luck contributions and are anticipating the fun. Too bad the work week has to get in the way of camping! Thanks to the Depot Crew for putting on a great little gathering which always comes at a nice time of year to get out in the van. Nice to see so many folks enjoying the great fall weather!

Had a great time @ Buses By The Depot, in spite of getting stung on the tongue by a Yellowjacket, as we arrived. Damn bees in the soda can........
Good folks, good times, NOT raining like at home in Virginia all weekend, 20% discount on parts- y'all should plan to come next year!
