This page is a later addition because before owning a VW and making this road trip,
I would never have known the beauty and wonderment of the VW camper family.
I include in the word family all those people with and without VW campers who love these magical vehicles. And I use the word family because everyone I met shared the same values of  simplicity, generosity, humor and respect for each other and our earth. On one VW club site (Leakoil of PA) in the 3rd paragraph of their “About’ section they refer to this as the Golden Rule.

I’ll leave it there! Except to say that many of our VW family joined our Van on Facebook and you can see their sunny faces under the ‘… people who like this’ section. Please join us there too!

Supporting our journey
This road trip has been largely self-funded with the exception of donations for some of the fuel costs (from Wolfsburg West and the Inland Valley VW Club in California), help from the mechanics listed in our THANKS page and guest rooms provided by new friends (also mentioned in THANKS).

If you would like to take a little piece of this road trip with you and help with our expenses, we have lots of photo cards for sale. Each is an original photograph taken by me, mounted on a card and numbered for limited edition. There will be a maximum of 100 prints of each.

If you would like to order any of those shown below, please email me at and put PHOTOCARD in the subject line. Then we’ll work out which ones exactly.

  1. Hi Carole –
    Just thought I’d send a correction – on your “Family” page under “Supporting Our Journey”… Our club is Inland Valley Volkswagens (IVVW) and if you would link to our website ( that would be terrific.
    Happy Trails!

    • Hi Sherri, Thanks for the correction, which has now been made. I’ve linked to you also and hope you can reciprocate. We’d be honored to be on your website. Sorry we’ll miss seeing you this Spring, but hope to be in California by late Fall 2011. Wishing you and your club a great summer.
