PostPosted: Thu Mar 01, 2012 4:24 pm    Post subject: Greater Seattle Bus Gathering? Reply with quote

Being new with a Bay Window bus in this area, I was wondering if any locals would like to meet, plan on meeting with a bunch of other Bay Bus people? I know Ive talked with two or three of you through PMs on the subject, so now that Sping is close....

I would like to gather names of the interested here, and or ideas of stop gap meets like with split or vanagon folks.

I dont have the need to camp as of yet, just a social meet at a food place like XXX or Dicks-BergerMeister kind of thing.

As my leg heals more and I can shift into getting both in the bus and with my body I was thinking of a BergerMeister stop. Kinda like Pre-Shoreline Vintage meet thing.

Thoughts?

There's Burgermaster the Friday before Vintage Weekend, there's the campout on Vintage Weekend, but I've heard there's a meet at that XXX Rootbeer place in Issaquah March 18th.

Springmeet is back April 29th in Bellevue, that should be a good showing of all things aircooled and watercooled.

But feel free to organize more informal bus specific events, people will show.

Check out Eastside Aircooled, and Northwest VW Club, they organize or play a part in most of the aircooled events around here.

I'm definitely down to meet local bus owners! I'm going to the NWVWC meeting for the first time next Thursday night in Burien and I'll be going to the XXX on the 18th and the spring meet in April. But I would definitely be down to meet up some other time and place. PM me and let me know what you have in mind!

Once I get my '78 back on the road I would love to meet some local folks! Keep me in the loop if you start putting together some informal get togethers. I should have my baby on the road in a couple of months.

My bus isn't on the road either. It doesn't even have the engine in it, but I'm down to meet with some other bus owners. Don't let the bus not being able to accompany you stop you from hanging out.

If you see a red 72 that's loud and watercooled, come introduce yourself.

Yeah, I dont think a llack of bus should hold anyone back. Good to hear about the upcoming events-especialy the XXX march one.

Maybe that should be the starting point as Im sure It will take me till then to get my shifting foot right.

XXX....where and when? im in for what ever we can do! i say lets meet at the dicks in edmonds at least once....NW VW club met up about a week ago and it was great aside from the cold wind....lets do it again! (plus its close by my house Very Happy)

also...try learning how to shift without your clutch once your moving...a good skill to have if the clutch cable breaks, and nice to do when my left leg hurts from a run or something Laughing

Well i went for my 6 week broken leg check today and was told that I need another 6 fricken weeks of crutch time Shocked That sucks balls Rolling Eyes

Needless to say Im not going to miss the XXX meet and should be able to push the clutch to get there. Ive been adding weight to it anyway-as well as the doc saying to go ahead but not full weight.

Sooo XXX it is Wink
