What with one thing and another we haven’t got out for a vanagon camping trip this year until this last weekend. Was just a quick overnight trip to, once again, the Port Renfrew area. Here are some pics.
Marine cloud started to move in around 5 pm. By sunset it was at our camp (654m elevation).
Cloud in the valleys next morning.
Finally, a bit of a bumper project update. You might notice i have the unfinished aluminum bumper on the van during this trip. It’s on and off as I fiddle with things. My most recent fiddling was making some tow hook brackets. These will screw onto the bumper where the steel framework for the hitch attaches to the van. The brackets are made from some 1/2″ stainless steel disks, 3″ in diameter. They were water jet off cuts. I cut one disk in half, drilled a hole in each semicircle. Two disks had a hole drilled in them and I cut the head off a pair of M16X1.5 bolts and welded them into the holes in the disks. I then welded the semicircle parts onto he disks. Picture shows one with a shackle attached.
