So we decided to go camping in Utah. Brice Canyon first for a few days, then Zion. Man, it takes a long arss way to get there so we stopped at the Vegas for the night. This morning we got up way early and hit the road. Stopped for a good break in a town called Providence in Utah.

While munching on a sammich, I see a phatchick drive by, with a Dormobile top to boot! :shock:

It turned into the Walmart, so after we were done I drove there, waited a bit and the owner came out. We talked a little and then he tells me about this vw show happening THIS Saturday! :-o

So, we are at Brice already. We’ll camp here 2 days then try to make it to the show. Hell, when are we going to be here again at the same time! Might as well do it! :cool:

If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea....does that mean that one out of five enjoys it?

We could not find room at any close campgrounds so ended up moteling it. Here’s keeping an eye on the Dormy.

I have never seen you post pictures of your bus at a show WITHOUT the top up.

Nice job on the award.

Yes that looks like Zion to me. Great scenery when looking up, but the campgrounds are crowded and dusty.

Still, I'd like to go there one more time while I can.

Right now, we’re just chilling at a lake resort “off” Vegas. Tomorrow we should make it home. :cool:
