Farewell to a dear dear friend!

The van and my dad;-) She overheated on Jackson's pass.
Let me tell you this van has all sorts of character...for example the window does not roll down....so if you want to talk to somebody (like an angry tourist in yellowstone) you have to open the door to get yelled at.
Inside the van;-) Very very comfortable. Even though you have to blast the heat to keep her from over heating and the windows don't roll down.


Our Van has recently moved on in life. It has served us well ;-) I remember the day we bought the van back in '92. Back in '92 I thought it was the coolest ride ever, but in 2007 when we took for our last family ride she reminded me of a ghetto rapist van! This van has served many wonderful purposes. It has been a comfortable seat to sit on while traveling all over Utah, Idaho, Montana, Utah and Utah. It has been a wonderful hotel for those not brave enough to camp outside! It has also at times been used as an assault weapon to buffalo in Yellowstone;-) Here is a picture of our final voyage in EL VANO, this is at the top of Jackson's pass. Don't worry, we did make it home. Goodbye van....we will miss you!

We had a van like that, but it didn't just die. I killed it.
