Last US trip for my van Coast to coast oct 2016

Time has come to take this van back to Europe, yes one more going there.

I just arrived in Oregon to pick it up and will start the trip east next week.
Now on the Pacific shore in Seaside OR.

Schedule is tight but I will try to fit in a few side trips depending the route I take.
The route will mainly depend on weather and the pit stops that are already scheduled.
Destination is New York to slide it in a container.
More in the next days...

You are welcome to stop by our place in Oregon City. Hope you have an uneventful trip to NY.

Seems like I will be able to come to see you unless there is a change in plan.

Hit me up if you end up stopping the boise area. Can also help point you in good directions for camps here and surrounding areas. Good luck on your journey either way!

Shenrie, I am heading to south east Oregon this afternoon until Thursday.
Then I will head to Boise Thursday before heading to Yellowstone for 2 days and hitting the road to the east coast.
Maybe you have time to meet.

sorry andrew, never saw that last post. sometimes this forum moves pretty dang fast. thanks for reaching out regardless. it was a pleasure to meet and chit chat today. also thanks so much for letting me take your van for a drive with the mg conversion. i was thoroughly impressed.

hope your able to utilize a few of my suggestions as you make your way through idaho and enjoy yellowstone and teton park. this is a wonderful time of year to head through both those parks. travel safe and lmk if youre ever through here again. only as we discussed, next time lets bs around a fire instead of in a parkinglot

obligatory vans shot...
