VW T3 Syncro, 1989, Homepage: www.pitufo.ch
Two friends from Switzerland, traveling in a one-of-a-kind van conversion that they did themselves over more than four years. The van is a work of art and well worth a tour. We had them in for dinner and excellent conversation, and sent them on their way next morning headed for many more miles of fun on their jaunt across North America. If you have a chance to host them, jump at it!
Happy to have this good-natured pair from so far away; intrigued by their unique unit, about which they seemed happy to answer questions. They were absolutely trouble-free and didn't freak out when my phone malfunctioned and they couldn't get ahold of me at first--obviously don't rattle easily. And anyone who appreciates this terrain (Maine) at this time of year (mid-Nov, excessively dreary and wet), as they indeed seemed to, has all kinds of potential! Have a good trip, fellows!
