We might be off air for a while

BigBlueVW.com might go off-air for a while. This is due to a URL transfer. Basically, I am moving BigBlueVW.com from one service to another. This could actually take a few months (there is a complication with getting the URL back from Google/Blogger).

Anyway, I wanted to give you a heads up and let you know that we will be back online asap. The site will continue at BigBlueVW.blogspot.com in the meantime.

Anyone looking for info on Bus City 2014 - the VW bus campout in Sonoma County in May, you can find it here: http://vwcamperfamily.ning.com/events/bus-city-2014-the-sixth-annual-vw-bus-gathering-in-the-redwoods

Buses by the Beach needs your help!

Buses By The Beach is a group of VW bus lovers based in Grand Rapids, MI (though, when I was there, I met people from all over!).

Their annual campouts raise money for The Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors.  Last year marked the 11th anniversary of their spring campout and to date they have raised over $140,000.00 for this great cause.

Buses By The Beach has rapidly become a spring and fall destination for old VWs in the Midwest. Last year, they had close to 100 VW buses and their families show up!

They are having an online fundraiser since have out grown their borrowed trailer and would like to purchase a new trailer this year. They are hoping to raise $4000 this spring in order to make it happen. To donate, go to http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/buses-by-the-beach-trailer-fundraiser

And watch this video to learn about why they do what they do. Way cool!

Bus Benefit 2014 - the 2nd best VW campout in the United States!

I may be a little bias since I organize an annual VW bus campout, but I stopped by Bus Benefit last year in Southern Michigan and was completely impressed with the event. It is basically a concert for VW bus enthusiast on the shores of Lake Michigan with a group of good people that are raising money for a good cause. What's not to like about that!

Plan now to join in the festivities!

Electric bug at Apple HQ

This was spotted by a friend who works at Apple. The owner of the car also works at Apple. You gotta give it up for a dude that probably makes good chip and decides to spend it on making his VW bug - a 69 maybe - electric.
