    I know Smiley and Aimee are planning to be there.

    I'm planning to show up at least for a day or two. I will bring one of my vans to the Saturday show & shine if the weather cooperates!

    looks like snow is forecast for Friday and Saturday. I probably will not make it for the show & shine. My vans do not do well in the snow. Hopefully next time vanners gather in Seattle it will be for a summer event. Haha

    Weather

    Hope you guys are having fun up there but looks like that bumper dumper is closing in on your party. I'm hoping that Taz, Doc Yukon and any other snow country VCVanners will look out for those NOLA guys. Best wishes!

    Thumbs up

    the snow is dumping right now. The van is going to stay cozy and dry (and most importantly SAFE) in the carport. WASHDOT has issued heavy snow advisory for this evening's commute. We are supposed to get like 8-10" or something, and again tomorrow. My 50 series BFGoodrich Radial T/A's are not the thing to have in the snow whatsoever! Have fun everybody who is already there! And everyone who is not there: BE CAREFUL on the roads!

    Just Checking

    Doc, Taz, Snorkels, Smiley, Amie, you guys have your heads above the snow drift line? I'm guessing that the NOLA crew is willing to settle for once in a while hurricanes over months long snow every year. Ah heck, I'm sure our northern VCVannin crew is showing them the snow ropes. Hey Smiley, you gotta admit that it sure looks nice (from inside). Stay safe my VCVannin brothers.

    That is why I live in San Diego... too darn much weather up north. My BF's would not work either! Keep warm and safe.
