Van Owners, this is the calendar for BY YOU, OF YOU, and FOR YOU.

Enjoy pictures of amazing vans... getting towed near beautiful places!

All these pictures were submitted with enthusiastic and self-deprecating humor by the "Vanagon Owners" and "Wet Westies" Facebook groups.

We who actually live with and drive these vans understand the reality of #vanlife, and it's this: We do break down a lot.. but then, we get back on the road, in absolute triumph!

And when we're stuck in the middle of nowehere, we usually get by with a little help from our friends in the community.

This calendar is a celebration of that community.

2nd Edition! Bigger pictures on the calendar part & a few well-meaning captions make this hilarious VW owners' community-created parody of #Vanlift even better!

How it happened: We procrastinated on ordering our annual "GoWesty"(tm) calendar until New Year's even this year, and it was sold out! woops!

So then had a silly idea to make making our own parody calendar.. of our van breaking down and getting towed. We thought of the name. And made the cover.

And we were laughing so hard, we said "we need to invite everyone to participate in this!

So we went on the two FB van groups we belong to and invited our long-suffering fellow van owners to join us. Wow! Everybody had a story to tell and some great pictures to share. We made some new friends, and 250 comments and 100 photos and 2 LONG sleepness nights later, THIS is the result.

As a clearly labeled Parody Calendar, there are no issues with infringing on the GoWesty(tm) brand, which we all buy because it's awesome and inspiring, but to be clear: that company is not associated with us or this calendar in any way. And no offense is meant.

We had tons of fun making this calendar with you all.
It was exhausting, but so much fun, we're going to do it again next year. And *properly.* With a contest, voting, and everything. Maybe even some vendor SWAG, if we can pull it off.

Check your calendar for the dates, or go to our future home: to join in the fun!

*We have "normal jobs" and a lot of winter projects going on with the van, so the website will go live sometime in February. If you want to know about share your email address when prompted. We'll never sell or share it.

Thank you to this wonderful community!

Safe Travels and we'll see you on the road!
