Another fun weekend camping near Guerneville, CA

Our third time camping with fellow VW CamperFamily friends at our annual May weekend event at Schoolhouse Canyon Park near Guerneville.
It was as lovely as ever. Will post more pictures soon, especially those taken around the camp fire!


Days 2-3: 16-17 December 2009 at Heart Song House, Ashland

Remembering this moment all those years ago in December 2009, as I read about Pamala Joy today after meeting online another Ashland lady and new Vintage VW friend 🙂
Life is made up of wonderful moments of synchronicity and sometimes we notice them !

The 'YesWeCan' Journey ... driving, exploring, making others smile and educating while we go!

Past two days have been resting at Earth Song House, enjoying Ashland and test driving the VW Westfalia.

Pamala Joy, my host, and I have discovered some areas of mutual interest and connection: we both care for the environment, reduce our use of water and electricity, and we also both trained with Chloe Wordsworth in holographic repatterning.

Pamala has won several awards for her volunteering work in feeding about 1000 people in need in Southern Oregon. She founded the Food Angels, an organization that now has 60 volunteers who pack and deliver food to homes in the area. I filmed Gretchen, a volunteer, talking about their work and the kinds of fresh foods that they provide.

In season were persimmons, a delicious fruit. The day before I had seen boxes of them delivered. To see the video of Gretchen go to our Facebook Fan Page for the YesWeCan…

We have two to celebrate

It’s our 1st VW bus in the UK and also our 1st MG Awareness Event in the UK, too !!!!

It’s a double celebration I hope, though lots to do yet. Masses still to get organised and completed (as of noon Friday) before attending the VW event, Grill-n-Chill, at The Hop Farm in Kent all day Saturday 22nd September.

New blog

There have been lots of mentions of MG on this blog for almost a year now, whereas you may have joined initially to read and talk about buses or touring or camping.

So it seemed a good idea to start a new blog specifically to focus on the MG aspects of my upcoming “MG Awareness” drive across country. You’ll find it on a new website ‘Vehicles Working for Causes’ at http://vw4causes.org

And this “YesWeCanJourney” blog will go back to being more about the drive in an old … sorry Classic … Volkswagen bus …. and the resultant fun and challenges of such an adventure!

Is this a good idea, I wonder? It’ll be twice as much work for me, but will it work better for you? Please would you take a moment to add your comments below. Thank you 🙂

New route for MG Awareness Drive

MG Awareness road trip 2011 – route across USA east to west

Here is the revised route

The YesWeCan CamperVan is driving from Massachusetts to California (and beyond) for a good cause.

Please support us along the route by coming out and driving with us in a caravan; tell us about places to see,  VW club meetings, MGFA meetings; offer a place to park overnight, a shower or a beverage .. and most of all your company!!! Cheers
