campy little van


well hello little westy, old girl! welcome to our family ....

we picked up this little gem last week after much searching and are excited to try her out this weekend.
she even comes with a hula girl.

she's got a little tiny 1.9 liter engine so we'll be seeing the sights and negotiating the highway in s-l-o-w mode until we can upgrade to a subaru engine, or just a larger vw engine.

i caught westfalia fever from our friends the morris's in the spring when we met up in moab.
jen and andy have theirs decked out with all the bells and whistles and have inspired us to sink any extra cash we have into a 26 year old vehicle.... (wtf am i thinking?)

we are dreaming of driving the dalton highway next summer.

arctic circle, here we come!
