The latest lego models are really cool. I'm considering buying the lego VW Bus. I've noticed that there are many corresponding VW Packages that you can buy.

Here is an overview about all corresponding packages: https://aircooledcommunity.com/blog/volkswagen-lego-best-deals-lego-vw-bus-vw-beetle-set/

Hey guys. Found this checklist when buying a VW Beetle. It covers all rust issues, has many touch points with the VW Bus so might be interesting.

"TSP to clean the cabinets, then Lemon Oil."

What kind of Lemon Oil??  Such as: Johnson PLEDGE spray-on with Lemon, or Old English Liquid Lemon Oil ? ?

Thank you.....David

Bus Blog / Travelling Northern Ontario Summer 2018, Enthusiast Help Needed!
« Last post by Forgione on August 03, 2018, 10:00:35 AM »
Hi, I'm new to the forum but was directed here by my mechanic. I am travelling up to Pickle Lake Ontario next week from Toronto over 10 days. I have a 1974 Westfalia, I am just trying to be prepared in case anything goes wrong and bank some contacts if I am totally stranded. Any enthusiasts up there?

Last year I nearly got stranded in Newfoundland with my bus on a similar road trip. Alternator gave out in New Brunswick, swapped batteries every 2 hours for a week of driving. Car stopped idling, it was a nightmare. 

If anyone is off Highway 11 (Temagami, Hearst, Long Lac), near Thunder Bay, or north of Thunder Bay (Sioux Lookout, Kenora District, up highway 599 to Pickle Lake and so on) let me know!

Matt

Event/Show/Campout news and reviews / Buses by the Big Duck 2018!
« Last post by obnoxiousblue on March 20, 2018, 03:10:26 PM »
Join us for the 18th Annual Buses by the Big Duck VW Campout from June 1st through June 3rd at Indian Island County Park and Campground in Riverhead, NY!
We'll be camping in a reserved group areas 2 and 4, on sites equipped with electric and water.
We never run out of room, and last minute arrivals are always welcome! Brings your bikes, bathing suits, canoes, and kayaks to enjoy the bay!

Friday's welcome-party theme is "Superheroes!" in memory of our friend Dave who passed since our last campout. Dave's VW's were all named after Marvel Superheroes like Ben Grimm, "The Thing"

While not required, if you know how many people will be in your group please consider RSVPing!

Remember, pot-luck is on Saturday evening followed by a group campfire!

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Suffolk County Parks changed their pricing for groups in 2017.
The County now requires at least 50% of campers to have a Green Key - or, pay significantly higher pricing.
Since many of our guests are from Nassau County and New England (and non-resident pricing is now at $39/night!), in order to accommodate everyone while keeping site rates reasonable the following prices will be in effect again for 2018:
$30/night - Resident or Non Resident
While the current prices from Suffolk County are about $5 less per night (for a Suffolk Resident with a Green Key), each of us covering a little more helps to ensure that we don't disinterest campers from beyond our quaint little island.
Your CASH-ONLY payment will be collected by Mike at the group site. But, please check in at the front gate upon your arrival to the campground.

Pets are allowed in the campground, but must be licensed, and vaccinated.
You must have the actual rabies certificate, and a license with you. The tag alone is not proof enough.
Dog's must be leashed and under the control of their owner at all times.

Be sure to invite your friends, share, and like the event on Facebook!
