Dubs and Dogs 1: Coolness/Cuteness Overload

2014 Summer Cruise: Tucson to Tahoe in an Air Cooled VW – Part 3

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. Saint Augustine The more I read that quote the more I see into it. Maybe travel means more than the academically accepted definition. I don’t think Augustine was just talking about going from one place to another. I think he […]

2014 Summer Cruise: Tucson to Tahoe in an Air Cooled VW – Part 2

The World is a book, and those who do not travel (insert the words “to Tahoe”) read only a page. Saint Augustine…and me. 🙂 I think the thing that is most striking about Lake Tahoe is the color. It almost looks like it’s not real. Like it’s a Frazetta painting or something that you could […]

“The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” Saint Augustine How true is that?!?! The Second Annual Summer Cruise took me through more “pages” than even the 2000 miles suggested it would.   Looking back, I do kinda feel like that astronaut gal a few  years back […]

VW Baja Bug One Piece Front-End Nose Job

Naturally my first thought when I saw the Baja in the Chirco service center and the one piece Baja front-end was “Doddy-o-doe No Nose Job!”. While the reference may escape some, the opportunity to snap a few quick pics and talk about what was going to take place was quite present.   Now…the one piece […]
