Change is in the air.  Louise has arrived.


Louise is a Sierra Yellow/Gold, 1972 Volkswagen Type 2 Bay Window, Low Light Bus with the Westfalia Camper Conversion.  She’s a beauty.  Purchased from a really cool couple in Minneapolis, Minnesota (Kyle and Katie) and delivered here on Thursday evening.  She’ll be my new pet project as Lavera travels to retirement in Texas.  I’ve already made my first draft for the fix it list.  Rear tires have been removed and brake inspection has begun.  This comes after I coasted into a nearby intersection at the end of my street.  Note to self – inspect breaks prior to speed tests… got it.

New break shoes all around
Oil change
Carb clean up
New tires (ordered)
Sliding door repair
Negative Battery Cable Replacement – I think this is why it doesn’t start sometimes…

This brief list will keep me busy over the next week and a half.  If things are looking good, she’ll be my vehicle of choice for an upcoming fishing trip to Sheboygan.  Otherwise, it will be an upcoming tow truck trip to Sheboygan…

Also – site news.  I don’t think I have any regular visitors to my site (other than you mom – love you). But if you are interested… https://creamcitybinder.wordpress.com will soon be http://creamcitycamper.wordpress.com.  Make a note of it.  I’m a cheapskate and I won’t be paying for the extra “site forwarding” extension thingy.

Now… off to the DMV.
