Buck did great up the mountain and we made it to campsite just after dark.
I really didn't take many pictures while camping. Having to much fun I guess and forgot. Im sure someone will post some in the KQ ranch thread.

But I was able to get some on the way out.

Anyone that has been to Julian,Ca. Knows you can't leave without getting a pie to take home, so we stopped at Julian Pie company and took some pies home.
Dove Blue parking only in the front row was saved for us.

Buck did great up and back down the mountain.
I love seeing this sign after any trip. Because it means I'm home.

Dan, Again thank you so much for not selling me your DC Wink !
If you can believe it there is a guy on east coast that I begged even more than you and I'm so glad neither one of you sold.
I honestly believe I ended up with the right DC for me.

New bumper isn't perfect but 100% better than what I had.
Next over the last weekend I did some horse trading with a good friend and local VW parts guy and was able to get a og dove blue rear apron, decklid prop and better back seat top. All parts came off a 60' kombi that was produced three days after mines was.
