Yesterday we visited the “20th bug meeting Lengenfeld” in Lower Austria. Also Chris hit the road in his buggy – the first time this season, to be one of estimated 150 rides.
Friedrich and Matthias reorganised the parking space in Upper Austria, so they had to move the trailer to an other place on their property. During the moving process they had to pick up some wood planks from the saw mill. Thus they connected the trailer to a Trabbi from Friedrich and drove to the saw mill… As it happens to be the trailer is a little bit longer than the actual car. Greetings from Upper Austria!
Last weekend we visited the 2nd VW Beetle Show of Nappersdorf in our province of Lower Austria. Together with all the other visitors we drove to the border of the Czech Republic and the so-called “Excalibur City”.
“Cuñado” means brother in law in Spanish. In their circle of early bus friends they use the term as a bond between others that transcends the split window bus. Cuñado is a mindset and camaraderie developed through owning and maintaining early split window buses, camping, grilling out, and attending car shows and swap meets.
