I want to try and have my beetle at this if I can get the engine/tins back on in time. I think that is my biggest obstacle now.

Well, I’m going to try to get my Single cab running so we can take it. If it works out for both Mike and me, it will be the first time in about 10 years both those cars both ran together at the same parade.

The Single Cab is up and running! We will be bringing it, hopefully it makes it there and finishes parade. It doesn’t have the best reputation for parades, only completed one out of three attempts. I hope I’m not the only air cooled. Raj, Mike, Tom, Rob, who still has an air cooled that their bringing?

The camper was a little cranky, but it started yesterday. Gonna give it the honor of sleeping in the garage with the tender on tonight to be sure.

We got a new lights and a propane heater so we're ready to go!

No bowling for me, but I can gladly sit and watch (and criticize of course :D )

Bringing something aircooled. Just put the motor in this week, and only drove it around the block. Has no brake lights directionals, seat belts, missing some glass, etc.... typical stuff.
Trying to convince the fam to join me, something about being 24 degrees.
Should be interesting, lets see what happens.

Another great event.

Can't say enough how thankful we are to Ed and Christmas Carol for organizing this and the money and toys raised for children.

Hundreds of kids will have a new toy that wouldn't of without their and everyone else contributing.
