Some were sale before. Smile

I'm guessing they thought the excitement would bring out the buyers.
At least one Barndoor sold at the event.

Four weeks and three days after it started, my OCTO Barndoor Reunion weekend is finally over. Picked up the Baja truck at the depot in PA this morning. All three barndoors look good, considering the heinous photos taken during transit.

Did they fix the flats or did they just need to be aired up?

Aired up. But at least one tire was off the bead. So hopefully they were able to set the bead before unloading. Otherwise the tire could be ruined.

Sorry to chime into this thread so late in the game, but at long last, my family and I finished the return trip from the OCTO extravaganza. It doesn't really take 4 weeks to make this trip, but after taking some time in New Mexico and sightseeing across the country we finally made it home.

We had a great time in So Cal as always and a huge thanks again to Johnny, Charlie, and everyone else who made this event happen. It was a blast catching up with old friends and meeting many new ones!

Also a big thanks to my co-pilot Colby, my wonderful wife Missy for putting up with our crazy travel plans, and the whole Barnaroo crew (Gibbs, Matt, MaHk, Danielle). Trials and tribulations are what make these trips unique - hope it was an adventure to remember, I know I will!

Many of these events have been well documented in earlier posts by others, but here are some of my memorable shots from the last 4 weeks...

Preparing to leave Charlotte early Sunday morning - this bus would still be in pieces if it weren't for Colby's help the night before (and many nights before that!)

Rolling out at 65 mph...

Met up with Gibbs and Matt after a nice nap near Nashville. They were still battling their well documented fuel delivery issue with the Chromosexual.

A little "on again - off again" with the Chromosexual...

Now its my turn to breakdown...waiting for the rollback after a spun drum disabled us near Jackson, TN

A big thanks to Gibbs for even considering this option...it resulted in one of my favorite pics from the trip!

Back in Charlotte, NC and what a trip! Over 5600 miles of beautiful country. Glad I have almost a year to recover before considering the next cross-country route...

Really glad you and the family made it home safe and sound. Hope you didn't spend too long having to drive in the real hot weather. That can get pretty rough with kids in those padded child car seats.

We got very lucky with the weather... Temps were in the 70s and 80s all the way across with afternoon thunderstorms nearly every day. Just missed the heat wave by a week and a half! Kids did really great considering - children's iPad apps are a life saver!
Glad to hear the Philly Van Club BD collection arrived safe and sound despite the shipper negligence... To avoid this we should just all drive round trip for Barnfest 2022!

Thanks for that. I will pass it on to Missy who drove the PBR back from G-ville solo last week... No, I wasn't worried... Shocked

She did great and I'm sure got some surprised looks along the way!

Jake! You made it back! What an AWESOME adventure. All these photos you posted are amazing. As well all the others within this thread. I'm sure from time to time folks will chime in here and drop pictures here and there. Your family are troopers. We are all, OCTO & BDM, glad you were able to make it out and be part of this gathering. Who knows when something like this will come together?? Just know, I'm down!!

Yo Todd .......... you need to get a copy of Air Mighty and Let's Play VW's. Both publications covered this event. I do know HOT VW's covering should be published soon. These are ALL collectors issues. Niels Timmerman can guide you as to where you can get a copy and Shin Wantanabe can sort you out as well with getting a copy of his coverage. Both awesome coverage!!!

I didn't want to spend my time filming the gathering so i don't have lots of sequences but i thought it could be worth it to make a quick movie anyway, just to bring back some good memories from this wonderful event... Idea
Sorry for those who don't have their bus in it, i stopped to film quickly to enjoy my time there ! Razz
