Hey Buddy,
Moved again, Sold the business and moved to Port Angeles Wa. in fact we just closed on our new house last week. Had to get the wife to sea level cuz of her migraines. Much better.
As for the Van, I'm thinking something newer 6.0 gas GMC or Chevy LWB with cargo side doors no sliders or windows. Haven't even started to look yet. Just got the okay yesterday from the wife.
I sold the red Ford SMB to a guy in Austria,
I will post some picks to the other post for sure. Old school BMX pics from the mid 1970's.
Ron

Glad to hear you are back and all is well. Port Angles is a pretty town. Cannot get closer to sea level there. Good luck on the van search.

Because the elevation on the Gulf Coast was too high?
