Bug jam - odyssey!

Thursday evening - met up with Billie, Audi & Wes southbound on 85.
I-75 truck stop (chrome/porn/cb/tattoo place) - flowers bus sparking through the truck filling pumps... Shocked - Met up with Alex, Melissa, Ben, Jamie, Mat, Glenn...
Stopped in at LoveStuff (TM) - Closing down sale - 75% of leather apparel! - NICE - investigating coughing engine on the single cab - met a Giant cow in very dark gas station (1st encounter with the law) - changing fuel filters. Later and some more miles outside unknown place - finally found muck in fuel pump - problem solved.
Arrived Dave & Sandra's (circa 2:30am) for 3 hours sleep then up and out to Waffle house for some raw eggs - NICE.
Hattie's (our 67 westy) engine making loud banging sound pale
Determine something bad going on - oil has cool sparkely bits in it... Call AAA - $900 for tow home - V.NOT NICE! New plan tow Hattie back to D&S's and head to show to figure out a new plan.

Picture scene (didn't take picture - too sad) but:
Dugi, holding teddy in hand hanging down to the ground crying his eyes out as Hattie is loaded on to the rollback Crying or Very sad

Alex/Pete/Dugi 3 -up in the single cab (only vehicle with seat belt!)
Billie/Audi/Melissa/Mindy - in the panel (what happened in the back of the panel stays in the back of the panel!)

Arrived at Kip's after a comedy of errors following a dodgy GPS directions to a variety of closed resturants... drank beers (loads of beers).

Thanks to Chad for the loan of the RV bus for weekend, a ride and a bed was most appreciated - and I will never take the p*ss out of it again - honest!

Kip's party great - thanks to Kip and the guys for party.
Slept in the RV bus - got up for Bulli - our first time doing the Bug Jam weekend so blown away!

Cruised back to the hotel, and drank too much beer (again!)
Thanks to Kat/Chad for sorting a room - again much appreciated to have a real bed!

Got up - hit the road to Bug Jam. Plan started to form for Hattie, get another engine - take it back to D&S's swap engines drive home - figure out what went wrong back at base.

Thanks to everyone for the offers of trailers/trucks/cars/engines. In the end we opted to grab a new longblock from Total Performance - rebuilt 1600dp.

Loaded up new block and the gang into the single cab, the panel and the vanagon express. Headed back to Dave and Sandra's for the midnight engine swap.

Arrived at 11:00pm, by 4:00am (very cold) engine pulled stripped, longblock swapped, accessories rebuilt, tin back on, oil in engine running.

4:30pm crawled into bed, Dugi was pretending to be asleep, picture this scene: small head appears from sleeping bag and looks towards 4 very dirty and very tired guys and says: "Is Hattie working?"
To which we reply: "YES!", Dugi reached up his hand and shouts: "HIGH 5!" cheers
That undid the teddy hanging crying of Friday morning.
Headed out in the morning, rocked it all the way home, not even a missed beat...

Hattie + cargo safely back to L-ville.

HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE!

Special thanks:
Billie for being a hero
Chad/Kat for loaner vehicle and sorting us out at the show.
Alex/Mellissa/Audi for being outstanding friends and driving us around keeping our spriits up and generally being superstars.
Ben/Jamie/Mat for support vehicle and running around after us.
Wes for missing his flight just so he could help with the engine!

What could have been a disaster turned into what Mindy and I both agree was the top weekend EVER!

THANKS AGAIN TO EVERYONE!

See you all soon.

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Pete, Mindy, Dugi & Hattie.

It's amazing how it can still be possible to have a great weekend in spite of having some of the worst luck. To me, that's what the VW community is all about and what makes it special. Think of all those poor saps who trailered their VWs down and missed out on all of the adventure.

I'd like to give props to Billie as well. He was always in great humor in spite of fixing every one elses cars. :Rockit:

Also, my apologies to Wes. I had full intentions of picking you up at the airport and hauling you back on Monday until my cousins GF said no to you crashing at their house (damn non Vdubbers just don't get it).


Remember, it's not an adventure unless something breaks or someone is bleeding. That's when the great stories happen.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. I had a blast! Great times, Great People, Great Beer and really bad food for the most part! Anyway, I like to work on VW's, so this was a good trip to be on. I am glad everyone had a good time and I cant wait for next year!
Thanks to everyone.

totally - sth very special happened that wkend that will stay with us a long time- and it's not just the new long-block...Smile
Where are you guys planning to be for New Year's Eve? I hear there's a dubnut friendly partaaay happening in Lawrenceville GA. No, the words 'happening' and 'Lawrenceville' haven't been put in the same sentence before but with the characters potentially involved who knows? I'm sure there'll be making up songs, losing underwear, laughing at emPHAses, boob threats, bad puns, shouting obscenities, damaging undercarriage, standing in a cold place looking at engines, nominating peepee trees, not showering and imbibing heavily all probably followed by sleeping en masse on the floor not at home...sounds familiar somehow...
So who's in?

My VALVES

Post by AZwesG on Sat Nov 29, 2008 12:11 pm

Yea, that song has gone from being just another hoochy song to
The V-DUB spokes song!
Funny how you can apply any word to create the same laugh...
found this clip: lets see if it works
