Burt Meets Hildegard
Over the weekend, we took a delightful little trip down to the Indiana Dunes with our new vanagon friends Brody, Brianna and their van Hildegard. We stayed at a little forested campsite called Dunewood where the two vanagons looked right at home.
Hildegard is a true Westy and only a year younger than Burt ('84). She has the classic style, original cabinetry, buttercream paint-job and all!
Camping and the Dunes
We had all originally met in a craigslist exchange for wheels and being enthusiastic vanagon owners, hit it off immediately! We love our vans! We had a great little adventure to the dunes - which was much more remote/peaceful than we had expected. The pups loved the beach too, Boo was in and out of the lake the whole walk. We returned to our camp and glowing campfire that evening; brats, cheese, guac, beer and tales of the Winnebago Man :)
Throughout the trip, Brody brought an arsenal of camera gear and took some beautiful photos (used in this post). You can check out more photos from the trip and more of his creat photography on Flickr.
