I had a wonderful weekend exploring Bandolier and the Turquoise Trail in "The White Rocket" I had a 74 VW Bus in high school and then a 72 Bug during college and have always been a VW fan, so renting/driving Eric's vanagon was a nostalgia rush for me!

The car ran like a cham...

Eric needs to create a written "guide" for the vehicle. It has an "add-on" solar panel on the roof and storage battery, but the items it supports were not intuitively obvious to me. The "White Rocket" is very good mechanically and the trip was a classic VW experience; several p...
