Starting to wander again!

Postby NotJammer » Sun Nov 26, 2017 8:29 pm

Hi all,

I have traveled and camped about 30 states and Canada. Until not that long ago with motorcycle and tent. In the middle years a few VW Buses, old Airstreams now doing a cargo trailer conversion.

I'm a retired mechanic in Southern Illinois. Big on old-time photography, so it may have a darkroom or not. I also shoot DSLR. iPhone is the best...

Let's see if I can post an image of my new TV and CV, been lurking so I picked on those 2 acronyms.

I'll discuss them in other threads.

Messed up that image post. It might work if clicked.

Any advice on Flickr?

Thanks for the welcome and tip. I like the T&B's but I need my scooter with me and be able to haul stuff.

Earlier today I wrote about my 1980 San Diego adventure. That sure was a different time. Short version, drifted into SD, bought a $400 1964 VW Bus, fixed the brakes on the road and drove it back to Chicago. It was the end of a year of wandering.

I will try another image as test. This is a much better 1964 VW Bus Westy I used in the late 90's. This works in my other forum.

Funny, born in Chicago, parents moved to San Diego just before my first Christmas in 1950.

This area has really changed, sadly all for the worse.

During the War my folks were in your area, somewhere I have a pic of Mother with her $600 trailer home. She was Rosie the Riveter for a bit until Father was wounded in France. They went back to Minnesota. Chicago was later. I was there 50 years. I am now in the Heartland. Slower pace. I'll start a thread on my TV, CV and towing soon.
