Beetle Challenge

Beetle Challenge

It’s always nice to get a present on father’s day. Depending on what ‘hobby’ I’m into that particular year I tend to get a gift to suit it. So I’ve had whisky, paranormal stuff  and Family Guy DVD’s to name a few of the previous years presents.

This year I have another hobby that has absorbed my time and interest. VW Beetles. It used to be an obsession of mine about 25 years ago, but I came out the other side with another interest. I think back then it was Apple Computers. But back in 2012, it is VW Beetles again. And so fitting in with tradition my wife wanted to get me a gift that suited the obsession.

VW Camper Van Challenge

VW Camper Van Challenge

My son Dylan and I both share a love for VW’s. Mine is for the Beetle and Dylan’s is the Camper Van. So we both collect the models when we come across them.

For Dylan’s 9th birthday he got a T1 Lego Camper Van which consisted of 1332 pieces. He loved it but always found some excuse to avoid building it.

Its been nearly a year since my last post. Considering I threw myself into designing this site with the full intention of keeping an up to date blog, as usual I burned that interest out. And so the site has drifted along stuck in December 2010.

But today is a day that I had to just make sure I wrote something. My obsession with number patterns went sky high today with the ultimate 11:11:11 made even more exciting by the time of 11:11:11 and I made sure I set my alarm to witness it.

And thats all I have to say on this matter. I will make a concerted effort to add posts more regularly in the future.

Over and out.

Tynemouth Classic VW Rally 2011

Tynemouth Classic VW Rally 2011

It has been many years since I went to a VW festival, probably about 1992 ish or so. That was at a place called Stonor Park down in Henley on Thames. I remember at the time how massive the event was and being completely blown away by the amount of Beetles that attended. The variety of styles and ages was pure joy to any enthusiast. I had great plans for my bug and this event gave me another load of inspiration.
