From dream to reality

This picture pretty well sums it up. Tom's California Dream'n taken on PCH 1 in Huntington Beach California.The day after an incredible van show that some of my friends and I put together.

I lived the dream and will write more about it when I get home. It was a bunch of work for us to put this together and I owe a number of people a lot for putting themselves out so much to help make this happen.

CofC van show update

We're getting down to the wire, still a few loose ends to connect but all the important stuff is taken care of.
The dash plaques are done, awards are done and in my grubby little hands 3000 miles from where they will end up. Sending out reminders to some of our attendees and burning up the telephone wires cross country to California. Still have plenty to do for then show to make it even more special. The image above is a mockup for something that will be awarded at the CofC van show.

Here are some of the invited vans and some that will be there for sure. We've had one or two drop out but you will get to see many of these vans next Saturday either at the Donut Derelict Cruise in Huntington Beach from 5:00 am to 9:00 am or at the CofC van show from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm

I've been fortunate to be able to help out with the CofC in a very big way this year with the 2011 calendar funds as well as a number of other van related projects and events. We'll be hearing more on one of those projects next Thursday from the CofC. Vanners from all over North America keep stepping up to the plate and hitting it out of the park. This project I'm referring to is a grand slam.
