Here in Michigan, we used to rate the viability of a car by asking the question: "Could you drive it to California?"
That would be quite an adventure for me; sure sounds tempting.
I hope I can make it next year!

Why not a Thing pulling a trailer instead of a bus?

Because I am not an artist... I just purloined the posted image from our VTO comrades and added the text at the top. We hope to have art before the end of the year.

BTW: If we have an artist in the group that would like to collaborate with Things West & The VW Thing Registry we would love the input and ideas. Cool
Also The VW Thing Registry is looking for articles contributions; so if you like to write please reach out to us. Smile
The New www.vwthingregistry.com Please join us.

"Could you drive it to California" has been replaced by " Can it get me out of Kalifornia"

Registration will open soon. This will be handled at the Thing Registry page in the near future... Stay tuned.
http://vwthingregistry.com/
If you will be camping at the event or bringing an RV and want to be in the Thing area please register. I believe we only have one RV space remaining.
Hope to see all my friends at this years event. Last year we had nearly 60 Things and we are shooting for 100 VW Things this year! Join us.

Hey Mond, we may have to do this in 2019, as I will be retired, long run from Pa. to Ca., and back. Not sure my wife would want to do this. It would be super cool to get a east coast presence.

If I don't do it this year, I might not ever.
With luck, I will see you in July at KTE.
