Thanks to all for the tips! Feeling very welcome here. . .like this might be the beginning of a beautiful relationship
Will look into upgrading my van on the way out to pick up Bambi, and I'll spend the next week perusing these pages to get the best info on what to do. The tranny cooler sounds like a must, since I love my van and put a ton of capital into fixing her up. Hoping to take her from Holland to Beijing next year, so avoiding breakdowns in Siberia is high on my list!
Hoping to move out of my own place full time and rent until the market comes back (not holding my breath), so Bambi and I ought to be getting pretty close.
So many more questions, but I'll flip through the previous posts before I add any new threads. Looks like every conceivable question has been asked and answered many times already. Should make for some fun reading.
All best to you all, fellow roadies! Catch you round the next bend. . .
