When this old VW bus appeared in Beaufort in front of a newly-opened restaurant called "Peace, Love, and Hotdogs," we had to stop for a closer look.
It's even the same color as the one The Writer and I had in the early '70s!
We thought it was just parked there to draw attention to the restaurant and were surprised to look inside and see that it was full of tools and construction supplies and still very much in use.
It's got to be 40-some years old and still on the road.
Somebody has taken good care of it.
We traveled many miles in ours, sitting high up, looking out over that steering wheel and through the big front window at this country of ours, searching for the right place to be our home. At night we pulled striped curtains 'round the windows and slept on a mattress on the floor.
When we found the land we wanted in the Blue Ridge Mountains we sold the bus to help pay for it.
