Nothing Clever.  Great write up and very informative!  I appreciate it.  My wife and I flew out and met with Marc on Wednesday at his office in Grass Valley.  We have a home in Colorado.  We spend a lot of time in the backcountry in Southwest Colorado.  We are planning on driving the Pan Am in 2015.  We are finalizing plans for truck and camper.  I am 6'4.  I wanted to make sure I fit in the bed area.

My own V1 (#16) shake down cruise begins NOW! Grass Valley down the California coast then over to Death Valley is the first leg. Then I motor home to Florida to pay bills and pick up The Dog before heading out for a simple circumvention of North America. After that...? For those worried about my Syncro Westfalia, have no fear! Marc at XP is caring for it while I'm away.

Sure he is! All I can think of is this clip from Ferris Bueller's day off. Except instead of a Ferrari it's your westfalia syncro! And that's Marc driving it!  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:
