Stretching the Van's Legs

Took out the Van today after a day of repair yesterday. A new battery, some tightening of the fan belts and a new coolant hose and good to go.

She dried out a bit on the drive, but still a bit musty. Man, I miss driving that beast but I don't have anywhere to stash her in LA, so she's gonna have to be in a "semi" state of storage until I can find a spot.

Took a drive out to the coast to get some road under her wheels. Bodega Bay and Bay Hill on the drive home. Was foggy on the way out, but cleared up a bit on the way out.

Salmon Creek was firing - looks like a swell was hitting. Really big. No one was surfing though. Doubt I'll ever want to do it - I remember meeting a surfer when I was around 10 years old out there who had been big by a Great White. Showed me his scars - teeth marks the size of potato chips, his whole head was in the shark and it let him go. No thanks.

Sharky Salmon Creek. Clean and offshore.

Local curiosity on Bay Hill.

Vanagon power.

Plan to meet with some modeling agencies in San Francisco tomorrow to do some testing while I'm up here.
