THANKS everyone for making this a great day! Awesome turnout with almost 80 aircooled cars that filled the square to the max. With many vistors who enjoyed the show and eat over 320 butterballs, climbed the tower, watched the movie and enjoyed the good vibes it was a succes! Hereby I would like to thank everyone involved – participants, visitors, sponsors - who made this possible! We hope to see you back on March 5, 2017!
Last Saturday we visited the Hot Chocolate Party at Kieft & Klok. Always good fun, the sun was out and spoke to a lot of friends again. Missed speaking to many as well as it was so busy... but all in all we had a good time! Thanks to the Kieft & Klok crew for the hospitality and the good vibes.
We had a very nice and autumn-sunny day at the Arnhem Dub-Inn in Arnhem, the Netherlands on October 11, 2015. We saw and spoke to many friends again! Be sure to check out my pictures in the gallery, it's a nice mixture of water- & aircooled V-dubs!
On the morning of October 1st, 2015 we started our journey to Brighton Breeze in the UK. All went well besides our rear brakes... We came to the conclusion that they got really, really hot at some point. We stranded in Ashford where lucky we found out Doug King runs a VW garage called OG Buswerks and man he helped us out like a gent so we could continue the trip! THANKS for all Doug! We are happy that Justin likes traveling as much as we do all went superb and he loved and enjoyed every minute of it! Once we arrived we hooked up with the Grabijn Family, visited the Brighton Pier, did some sight seeing in the centre, grabbed lunch in one of the small streets next to the sea line and found some cool shops on the North Line. Great fun! At the Racecourse my buddy Paul Wisk checked my brakes again, now fixed and double checked. After having diner there we called it a night.
October 3rd, time for the show and what a great day we had at Brighton Breeze! Many many aircooled VWs on the boulevard (about 800!!), the best weather we could ask for and a great bunch of people! I even got a little sunburn! Justin and my girl loved every minute of it. And our friends Pieter and Janie Grabijn even won 'Best of Show' with their beautiful 1955 Westy! To end the day we grabbed some pizza to eat in the van and enjoyed the party with live music and the kids had a laugh. Next day was an early start again to make it to the ferry in time and travel back to NL again which all went well!
Thanks everyone for an awesome weekend, see you again in 2016!
On the weekend of 26-27 September 2015, directly after our vacation, I took my little boy Justin out to the Splits at the Lake / Spijlbustreffen meeting in Nuenen (NL). We spend the night in the Barndoor, first time Justin slept in there and he was looking forward to it, all went well, we had a blast! The weekend itself was perfect with a nice amount of split buses, sun, sand and water which made it perfect for the whole family! Will be back in 2017 for sure! Thanks all!
Here are my pictures from the Barndoor Campout #4, September 11-13, 2015 in Radcot UK. In September 2015 I drove to the UK to enjoy an nice and relaxed weekend at the Barndoor Campout #4. This isn't the biggest show but a very nice get together with like minded people. Of course we took some pictures be sure to check them out in our gallery, also we will publish a nice full show report in one of the upcoming AirMighty Megascene's.
Good times, coffee, a beer (or two), great pancakes and an old fashioned shave at the VW Bus Brothers open-house on January 16, 2016!
