It's been too long since I've posted on here. We've been so busy with the "new" house the last year and a half, not to mention the kids which are growing up way too fast. To all those that helped us get the safari back in use thank you, we will be out in it again soon this summer for a few rallies and family vacations. I've been doing more of the little things, redoing some others including replacing the VTS counter edging with the stuff I purchased through a forums member that bought a huge roll from Outwater Plastics. A much better fit and spot on color match.

I just thought I should post a picture I found online recently. I keep an eye on our 67 overlander that was traded to make this all happen. He's done some nice stuff with the interior and I must say the bees are cool, but we are very thankful they aren't in the Safari.

Thanks to all that have helped on the restoration, with parts, brain power, words of encouragement, and Joe and the folks that made it happen in the first place! Ok back to work....

Great weekend in Astoria Oregon for the Region 10 Rally. Great to see so many friends, it's been almost a year!

Here's picture on the way there, we decided to go a route we don't use often, slower in some ways but what a view of Mr. Rainier.

The guy that did the artwork Brad did amazing work!! Of course that back was photographed a bunch this weekend and one of my rally decals had come up from the sun and I didn't get it replaced. Driving me nuts!

Rob runs the Napa Valley Bee Works. You can google that and find him on several of the social media outlets and he has his own blog style website by the same name but I don't think it's been updated in a year or so.

I wish I could get that brass plate made, I keep trying but failing. With 3D printers and that type of technology the plate itself is easy, but haven't found any companies or private artists that are willing or are properly equipped to do porcelain inlays that big.

I'm sure the guy that did all that artwork will like that one too when I finally manage to get it done! (P.S. Brad did the artwork in both cases)
