Garden of Delight

I might not see this in the rose parade but I wouldn’t mind in my driveway. If you haven’t been converted to a flower child yet just feast your eyes on this awesome VW van.  I’m guessing it would do well down here with all our humidity and rain. Maybe someday after the Peacemobile drives her last highway I’ll get around to doing this.

VW spotting #1

1978 VW Bus – Loxley, Alabama

This is the first in a new series of post: VW sightings, from now on I’ll be doing posting random photos of vintage VW’s I’ve seen as I wander about and would love if you joined in! So if you’ve had a VW sighting and snapped a pic please share the love, just email me (hippychicksnest@yahoo.com) and I’ll post it! Please include where the sighting was and any other info you can add like the model, year, or if it’s needing a new home!

this bus is looking for a new home

Thanks everyone,

Hippie love = Hangout Music Fest

If you’ve never heard of the Hangout Music Festival or just never had the chance to come down, this year is going to be another to remember. Last year Paul Simon top my list along with Michael Franti who can make you get up and dance on the worst of days or the hottest, the temperatures on the beach can reach into the mid 90’s but it hasn’t stopped this Hippy, I’m going back for my third year of fun, music and sun.

The line up for the sold out weekend is:

This is the only kind of stache you’ll find me with there. I’m pretty squeaky these days.

Their gift shop is crazy, so you just might catch this driving down the road on our peacemobile.

Behind the Wheel of My VW

Just a quick update: the weather has been amazing so the Peacemobile has been on the road this winter actually she’s given us 23,000 happy miles in the past 6 months, I don’t think she’s see that much highway in years! We’re still planning our summer road trip and I won’t go into a rant about oil companies it was bad enough they covered our beautiful beaches here in AL with oil, so let’s hope I can afford to keep her keeping on.

Happy Weekend Cruisin’

How cool this toaster? This is an original item from Volkswagen Japan. This is a must for every fan of VW’s breakfast table. We can not think of a better way to burn your bread in the morning. Volkswagen Minibus official VW Toaster is an item that is not sold in retail stores, not offered by VW dealers in Japan every year to the first 5,000 subscribers who bring their cars for inspection.

I just might start to like toast if I had one of these, going to keep an I out on Ebay for one.

Welcome 2012

Happy New Year! and with what might be the last day of warm weather here as I must get the peace-mobile ready for winter or should I say hibernation. She is an awesome vehicle and I can’t image storing her for 3 months but with the temp dropping into the 20’s by Tuesday there isn’t enough blankets on Earth to keep us warm and having another vehicle  equipt with heated seats and well heat I don’t think it’s a hard decision to make especially when you start to hear the chattering of little teeth, but she won’t be forgotten we are already planning some great adventure in peace-mobile for the spring and summer, the kiddos and I can’t wait! …….Or should I say GRAND adventures! Hint, Hint.

Peace out peace-mobile until Spring.
