Into the Sunset

Chuck is gone.  Here it is, no easy way to say it.  Lots of memories and thousands of hours gone into the setting sun.  Hopefully we will meet again.

Exactly 7 days and 1 hour ago Chuck was taken by his new owner.  Left for warmer shores (So-Cal Bound!)

Alex, the founder of Genasun flew into Tulsa to pick up Chuck and head for southern California.  He promised to take Chuck camping in the mountains and keep his oil topped off, its the best a van can ask for.

Its bittersweet, but we are looking forward to our next adventure.  The search for the next van is on in earnest now.  No van could truly replace Chuck, but eventually, just maybe, we can find another 4 wheels to call home.  Our schedule is pretty tight, we have about 8 weeks to acquire our next ride, and to begin the long conversion process.  I will be posting build details to this blog as they develop.  This promises to be an epic undertaking, the complete Up-Fitting of an quasi-expedition vehicle.  Look forward to it!

Until next we meet upon the paths that wrap this earth, farewell good Chuck.
