Apparently Vanagons aren't good travelling vehicles and drums in campsites are frowned upon..

You should probably believe me when i say that being a Chucklehead is an absolute, mandatory prerequisite for being a Vanagon owner. It goes back to the German Purity Law of 1516 or something.

Probably the most fun I ever had in an automobile, sex not withstanding was in a Vanagon. It was all fun and games in that thing till my buddy ripped the sliding door off of it on a phone box during late not mischief.

Notice how they start floating sideways until it gets shallow enough for the tire to touch the bottom again. BTDT following the big trucks in the Jeep across the Little With. in Richloam. Pucker moment the first time you do it.

The gumbo was so so, I've had better, but the fishbone added a little character to it. I avoided the tilefish based on previous reviews.
