July – Reader of the Month

Cody and Christine

When did you get your bus? Any stories about the previous owner(s) or how you obtained it?

My wife and I bought our bus in March of this year. We bought “Tex” from a older gentleman located in San Diego, CA. We did not find out a lot about the Bus as a friend of his did the “deal”. My wife and I flew from Memphis to San Diego looked at the bus, bought it and hit the road.

It’s got a name, right? Any story behind it?

My wife named the bus “Tex”. Like yourself (I believe) I grew up in Texas and as most Texans are, I am quite proud. She felt that the name  “Tex” would fit nicely and I do tend to agree.

Have a favorite memory or trip in the bus?

So far, our favorite trip was our journey home from San Diego to Memphis along old Route 66. We had never been west of Texas on Route 66 and had a fascinating time. Our only regret was not stopping at the “big ditch”

Any big bus adventures planned? What’s your dream trip in your Westy?

Our dream trip would start in Chicago and end at the Santa Monica pier. I would love to spend a few weeks doing the entire Route 66 trip and writing about it. We also want to travel the East coast and make our way into Canada.

How did you hear about us? Any suggestions on where we should we go?

I was looking for some parts for the bus and somehow you guys ended up in my Google results. Read a few pages and have been hooked every since! As far as places to go, I would recommend a trip to Memphis! Swing by and let my wife and I treat you to some “pork” bar b q and a cold beer! 🙂

    is the “reader of the month” restricted to just bus owners or is a former bus owner and current fullsize van owner eligible?

    no restrictions.
    no purchase necessary.
    no express written consent of major league baseball.

    All you have to do is answer some random questions. send us a photo. Maybe we’ll get Bode to formulate the next set of questions….

    We’d love to be September or October reader of the month! We will be on the road then but without the bus. Otherwise we can just be readers which is suiting me just fine!

    Hello, my name is Brian and I am not quite sure I stumbled upon your blog, but glad I did. I just finished reading the entire thing, and I am now a loyal reader! Excellent writing, great pictures! I have a daughter, Madaghan, that is 4 years old and like Bode is an endless ball of energy. Good luck in all your travels! If you pass through NY let me know! I have a bar in my house, and a huge playground in the backyard :-)….look forward to your next post.

    I keep a blog too, so stop by sometime.
