On the road in US and Canada...

4x4 trips to Mexico, to the ski hill, or to the local grocery store...

I honestly don't know :) Any plans/timelines we make go straight out the window. Been traveling slowly around the great lakes in US/Canada border and finding so many beautiful places that can't get ourselves to just drive by. A friend in seattle told me the weather will turn in mid september but at this point I'm not sure when we will get to west coast. Probably in October sometimes if I had to guess. Anything going on?

Nothing going on right now. I wound definitely check out Vancouver island and especially tofino if your coming in October. I'll be there in early September but the surf will be better in October. Also it seems like tofino is the delica capital of the world.

Thanks for the tip. It seems we will miss the warm/dry season to explore the B.C. Area but knowing such seasonal spots definitely helps.

We finally made it to west coast. We will be spending a week or so in Seattle before heading up to vancouver. I'm hoping to get an appointment with CVI for a proper tuneup/service. Be great to see the folks up there if you guys are up for it.

I'm also taking out the rear AC/Heater while I am in vancouver. If there is anyone interested let me know. Not sure about price, etc.

Well, we are still on the road. Plans changed a lot as they always do. We were planning on being back to New York in one year but its been 13 months and we are in souther california and long way from home. Right now kicked up our heels and facing the ocean so can't complain. There were so many interesting things along the way that made it very difficult to just drive through and hope to come back some day.

So time for some major decisions now with finances almost gone and facing the summer months in southern states which was our route back.

We met some Delica folks along the way which was pretty great. And yes; the van gets so much attention that you'll try to avoid it after a while. But our trusted Furi has been everything to us; a true home away from home.

We've had an instagram page that we have been most active on comparing to other Social Media Forums. Would love to see more Deli folks.Drop us a line and hopefuly we'll cross paths. I should put up a post on modifications and lessons learned soon thought. As soo as I finish back taxes :)
