Both our lives and the van’s are going to be very different. She, the van, will have a much easier life. No more nine to five for her. No more carrying heavy tools to and from construction sites. Hers shall now be a life of leisure.
It was a great day of doing absolutely nothing. We swam. We played with the dogs. Steve tried to get his dog, Zeke, to swim. Johnny set up a tarp, juggled, and used his backpacking water filter. I set the kitchen up outside, cut potatoes and made french fries.
While I don’t have any pictures of it, we tested out the van’s AWD and positraction in the sand at the beach. And even though there were a few deep spots, Johnny said the van handled it like it was on pavement. No slippage at all. We also had to go on a “high clearance”, unimproved road to get to the water. The van handled herself nicely. So far so good. We’re jazzed!
