Some of you might remember that our youngest son and his wife purchased this van a few years ago to convert so they could travel about the country.  Converting it was a learning experience for all of us and it turn out pretty nice finished with beetle-kill tongue and groove.

They traveled around the US and across Canada with their 2 whippets.

Fast forward to last year when our son's boss mentioned a raffle and thought maybe our son might make a donation for a chance.  Several months later the son won this, along with $$$ to trick it out and it was converted by a company in Boulder, CO.

If you need a Sun Flame Generator Model 100-107 ( for Sunflame lanterns models 105, 106, 107 and 110) give me a PM, I have close to 80 of those, 15 bucks each.

I have to agree with you, Werner.  The wood has some really cool bluing in the grain.

Totally agree, John!  Granted, the new van doesn’t have that personal touch but someday, someone will decorate it the way they want.  The kids don’t need 2 vans so the new one is going to be sold so the they can pay off some student loans and bank the rest.  They really like the one that they built and made their own.

From the minute he found out that he won the van, the DIL was already planning on what loans to eliminate after they sold it!  The son started to protest but not wholeheartedly.  She stated that they already had a van and it was finished the way they wanted and pointed out the fact that they could pay off loans and bank a nice chunk of change.  He knew she was right and once the word was out that he won the van, a lot of folks in the climbing community started contacting him about buying the van since they knew he already had one.  He also got a lot of “you sucks” from folks around the country!  The van also came with a bunch of swag such as backpacks, camp chairs, a folding kayak, and other assorted outdoor gear which they are keeping.

Here you go, Bob.  Mayla on the left, Keira on the right.  These two are sisters.  Our kids really like whippets and even are considering naming their property in Wyoming the Noodle Horse Ranch!  LOL!

Thanks for the pics. They look great.  Are they as laid back and couch potatoes as some claim after a good run in the yard.

Wow! That's awesome to have won that rig! The one you all built looks so much cozier, though. Sounds like they made a good decision on which one to keep.

Great story, with a happy ending.  So nice to hear of some good news amid the gloom and doom these days.  They'll have a story to tell for the rest of their lives.

Yes, especially when they were younger, as long as a good run means they can run fast at times and yard equates to enough space to get up some speed!  At 11 years old the girl’s running days are pretty much over and they are quite content with walks now.  And they have couch potatoing down to an art!
