Colin has started booking dates for his 2015 tour of the USA. He specializes in buses, but will help you with any model air-cooled VW.

He is well worth the price of admission for the knowledge you will gain in one day's time.

Hey Jon. You were in on the group visit in the fall. Would you do that again or would you prefer a solo day? We could do a string of days and then we all volunteer to assist (as a means of getting any big projects done) on a day that is not ours. What do you think?

I'm pretty sure a visit is not in the budget for me this year; however, Greg and Kris were talking about his schedule at the club meeting this past Sunday. If space is needed for a visit, I am always willing to host a visit and to provide assistance to others.

We thought we would invite him to our Camp'n Cruise. (May 29-31)

Does anyone want to split a May visit? Chris, have you connected with Colin about that follow-up he was going to do for you?

Jon, if you read this and happen to speak with Chris, Greg, or anyone mentions they are interested in a visit please let them know I am interested in splitting a day.

Your Deposit will lock in the date.
Absence of a deposit means your scheduled date may shift.

This the latest update from Colin's site. It looks like Sept 5 is when he hopes to do an Athens stop this year.

At this point I still don't see myself having a visit this year, but nothing is set in stone. Anyone wanting to go in with Jimbear?

He was at RareAir's tech day in Pensacola weekend before last. Wish I knew sooner, I may have been able to go. Only an hour away from my place down there.

He would do early May. Thanks for the reply Greg. Anyone speak with Chris? I thought Colin was going to do a free follow up for him? I would definitely take advantage of that if I were him.

I took advantage of my free follow up plus another paid visit last fall. I have been keeping in touch with him though, he's not going to make Camp n Cruise, he'd like to arrange a September Athens visit though. I may be up for going in on September visit, I need to see how the money and project list play out.

I currently have a message out to Colin about visiting Athens next week. I do not know what he is going to say just yet, but would anybody be up for splitting a day at this point? Just checking. Spread the word to see if anyone is interested.

OK. Colin will be at my place from 1:00-5:30 on Saturday. I will gladly buy pizza, beer/soda/coffee if anyone would be willing to come and assist for a few hours. My schedule is tight and my plan B, if anyone can assist, is to have Colin get you/me going on a project while he/I address other issues between the two VW's. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks folks!
