Friday Field Trip

      No Comments on Friday Field Trip

Sometimes a field trip in the middle of summer is rewarding. The beach is nice, and don’t get me wrong, Thor loves driving on the beach but yesterday we took Thor on a field trip to inspire.

Just down the road from Grover Beach is the tiny coastal town near the rock of Morrow Bay south to Los Osos. Home of GoWesty. The Holy Grail for Westfalia owners.

P1010959GoWesty is mostly an online catalog operation for your VW van or bus parts and accessories. They also sell high-end remodeled Westies. There is a service department and a Westfalia graveyard~dozens of dead Westies waiting to donate parts to the newly remodeled. We turned left past the fenced in yard and right to the parts department.

Sounds oxymoronic but we bought a dry bag for the bathtub(the shallow storage area above the van’s cab). We’ll simply fill this bag with gear and strap it into the tub. Sure beats the tarp and bungee method. In wetter weather the gear stays dry and most importantly Thor likes his new hat. Me, I got a new T-shirt.


And lookie here, even GoWesty receives postcards from happy Westie travelers.


GoWesty~~~> a field trip every Westie the owner should take.
