Jono asked what year Westfalia I have. It is 1982, the last year that Volkswagen made an aircooled camper. Spring is on it's way and I have 2 of the 3 major projects completed to get it ready to roll for trips during the summer. This pic is from 2008 when Cousin Andrea and I decided to tour the Redwoods in NorCAL. Neither of us had been for a long time. The below pic is from a 1982 Westfalia ad. It sleeps 4 - 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs , with the top "popped", but 2-3 is really perfect. Copper Penny is her name.
We do not usually cook in the van and prefer to use a propane campstove on the picnic table and the fire pit & grill in the campsite. Pineapple on a camping trip? I don't think so. Too many black bears in Calif.
We found a private campgroup with a lake with a great view farther north in NorCAL.
