Hello Volks,

Most of you know me on the list, some of you have helped me, and some I have helped. That's a real big reason I love this list so very much.

Anyway, here's the point.

As many of you know I am a sales manager for a large RV Dealership here in Florida. No, I am not selling RV's here today. We carry Safari's and Beaver Motor homes, and just last month we had a big homecomming ralley here in Orlando. Bear with me just another moment I am getting to the point. Anyway about 800 Safari's and Beaver's descended upon my home town, and of course we were there selling coach's, but also we attended all the functions, and this thought occourd to me:

That in this big room with all these folks from different backgrounds and places, If I had gotton up on that pdium and said: I want to:

build an airplane, or start a business, or market a product, or start a farm, or, or, or or or or or whatever

In that very room was enough talent to make it happen. And you know what this list IS the exact same way. Look around at each other. Why we have enough combined brainpower, experience, connections to do anything we would put our combined efforts to.

Someone out here as a degree in mechanical engineering, or electrical engineering, or is a lawyer, or a marketer. Someone could put together the financing for a project, or a product.

This is a great little list we have here Volks.

This common bond, this Vanagon, that draws to it people from all walks of life, and allows us the common thread to communicate, to enteract with one another, was never envisioned by it's creator, but has in fact evolved.

And just one more thing. At our gatherings we all get along, We accept one another, and respect one another, and help one another.

The above may not be an earth shattering thesis, but it's a pretty damn good place to find ourselvs in, isn't it.

Damn, I love this car/camper/pick-up/people hauler/cabin in the woods etc. etc. etc. _________________________________________________________________ Get your FREE download of MSN Explorer at
