Van has officially retired. We donated him to a Los Angeles-area public radio station — well, actually an auction company, but if Van is sold at auction KCRW will get some of the proceeds — so we figure that is a dignified way to go. And KCRW rocks.
And we always have the farewell video to watch whenever we feel nostalgic …
We have been working on The Sprinter in the meantime.
We removed its eight seats and plan to keep two for reinstallation in case we want to have passengers.We figure they might appreciate nuances like actual seats, and seat belts. We have also added curtains, carpeting and insulation to the walls and ceiling.
The next project is building a platform for a bed. We will be able to store lots o’ stuff underneath the bed and it will all be secured by doors. Mike will use his mad carpentry skillz to build it all.
