The VAP is missing something these days.

I have listened to the VAP these last two shows and they have not been the same.
Frank has been absent and the explanation given was that he has taken a sabbatical.
I have come to enjoy listening to his approach to Airstream repairs and have learned a lot.
I urge all of you who are reading this to post here or contact the VAP and ask for Frank to come back.
Frank I hope you will reconsider and return to the VAP. We all miss you.
I also ask others who feel the same to contact Frank and beg him to return.
Send a note to Tim at the VAP and ask for his return as well.

I'm sorry, but what is the VAP?

It is the best podcast ever! You should check it out! Maybe they will turn you on to Vintage!

Work is never done, so take time to play!

I agree, it's a great podcast, I enjoy all three experts and hope Frank will return. It's good to get lots of different approaches.

J--I'm almost jealous that you've never heard the podcast before--you have lots of entertaining hours ahead of you!

BTW--Frank is presently working on our trailer, so we saw him earlier this week. Rick & I welcome his return (so long as it doesn't lead to slacking off on the Toaster)!

Actually, slacking and Frank are two things that just don't mix!
Our Airstream adventure continues!

I agree! Really miss hearing Frank too - think having both him and Colin makes for a fantastic resource.

My wife and I also agree!! It is good to hear the view of all 4 guys even if Colin and Franks opinions differ some times. We have listened to all shows multiple times. Our friends that don't have Airstreams look at me funny when I tell them of the VAP, I think they want to find me some help:-)
It's not worth doing if you're not having fun.

Wow folks, I don't even remotely know what to say here, except thank you.

jgerardi, you now have 200+ hours of awesome listening ahead of you. I began listening at the very beginning(again) just the other day. I am still amazed that every show I listen to(even for a fourth or fifth time), I learn something new.

I must add that more important than me being on the VAP, is that you all are. Without the listeners calls, FaceBook input, and email, Tim has to wing it. Call in with your questions, stories, or thoughts. Your voice is what makes the show, not mine.
