My girlfriend and I leave sunday from northern Indiana (near Chicago) to head down for Wanee. We'll be in my '76 sage green Westy. Her name is Ophelia (my bus name) and she went to Mag Fest a couple of years ago for her maiden voyage.

Last year I saw several buses down river road on the dirt road that runs along the power lines. There were 4 or 5 all together, just to help you find a spot. I'm not an owner (yet) but I like to check them out.

Happy Wanee :)



I'll be in my 85' Vanagon just like last year. I was camped near the ones roller6012 mentioned above. I'll be getting in Wednesday as well. Been talking to Volkemon about setting up camp together. Would be cool to have more VW's camping. I posted a thread last year about VW campers but did not get much response. I ran into quite a few last year. One of my favorites was a guy from Athens, GA. Very nice Westy that was totally restored. We should all get together regardless of where we decide to camp and share stories, that's the greath thing about the VW culture!

I'm coming from Chicago! :D But my van is already in Tampa, so I just have to fly down there and make the 3-4hr drive.

After Wanee I'll be driving the Westy from Tampa to Austin Tx and then to Chicago.

Thanks for the welcome, Volkemon! I dig your '71! Had a '71 westy years ago! ((in addition to '72, '73, and '79 buses). Also dig your decorating work! Well done! 8-)

Foolery, are you hitting up the WSP UIC shows? We'll be there sat. night to get a nice warmup before heading south on sunday.

We'll be camped up the road, to the right of amphitheatre stage. Getting in around noonish on wednesday!

Safe travels everyone!
