Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan-Claire Mayfield. This is day two hundred and thirty-six of that project.
In the 1960s and 70s, a VW “Hippie” microbus was the envy of most 17 to 20-year-olds.
Oh man, if you were lucky enough to paint it like this one you were really living. It represented a way to be independent on the cheap.
You could hit the road and pick up other like-minded hippies along the way. Go to the next Grateful Dead concert or head up to Woodstock.
More likely you were a surfer and headed to the beach. You could sleep in your van and carry your guitar.
These are still around and I just read that VW is bringing them back in an electric version.
Those were the days, my friend.
