Heidi, myself, and VanDad had the pleasure of finally meeting and visiting with Sandy, who is a part-time Vandweller from Canada and an all around great guy! He stopped by on his way back home from the Quartzsite Az get-together.
This first-time meeting was actually supposed to take place on last year's return trip but a pretty serious rear end collision prevented it. Luckily, Sandy was okay and, with a bit of work, was able to rebuild the van above back to road worthy status.
I always enjoy seeing how others go about setting up their vans for mobile living. Sandy is a great craftsman and very resourceful. His van is an excellent example of using doner rigs to provide reasonably priced parts for the build. Even the high top was sourced from a parts van, reconditioned and then installed. It was all very well done!
Last night was particularly enjoyable as our great friend, and fellow VanTramp, Gary stopped by for a few hours as well. It is always a great time with Gary around!
