Fire on the Mountain #9

Last week I attended the 9th "Fire on the Mountain" Bus campout. This takes place in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in NE Georgia. This year was very special as my friends Steve & Tammy renewed their wedding vows. The weather was perfect, the lake was lovely, and the friends were many, even a few new ones.

Typical.. beers & chit chatting with great people

I camped out in the truck because Lenny is having his engine swapped this week! Next week I can look forward to properly breaking it in, and bringing the loaner engine down to Snoopy in Charleston, this way someone else can use it.  That's what VWs do~ they bring people together & teach us to share & help each other.  Although it takes a lot of work at times, its all these great times that really pay off.

Wilmington, North Carolina

I've spent the last month in Wilmington NC meeting people and checking out the local scene. So far, I like it!

The last few photos were taken last night at a club meeting for Oil & Air VW Club which takes place the first Thursday of each month.  Although there is another meeting coming up in 2 weeks to talk about a VW parade at an Oktoberfest locally.  Free admission which includes food & beer- count Lenny & I in!
