I Can't Drive 55

No really, it is not very fast. We love our new VW EV MV (Volkswagen Eurovan Multivan) Westfalia version. In normal Hurst fashion we have put 250 miles on the beast in the four days we have had the van! Andrew has gone surfing twice in Santa Cruz and we deem it the perfect surf/hippie van. This morning's surf session was great because Andrew played around in the surf while Blake and I hung out in the back of the van with the bed laid down.

If you know anyone who wants to buy a 2000 Chevy S-10 truck let us know since we will be selling Andrew's truck.

Here are the van's stats: seats seven, rear seat folds down into a bed, pop-top camper tent (sleeps two), rear facing middle row of seats, fold out table for fun card games, and mini refrigerator beneath the driver's side passenger seat. We are planning a Jalama camping trip in August and will be driving the Eurovan up the California/Oregon/Washington coast come October. Everyone pray we make it there and back without any major problems. We have a few more things to fix mechanically and then we can get to fixing some cosmetic issues.

*race car sound effects, but VW horn is real

Here I am enjoying a Slurpee from 7-11 since they were giving them away free because it was July 11th.

You better hit me up when you are driving along the Oregon coast. My Lexus could meet your VW. It might just be love at first honk.
