UPDATE: It seems that a number of posts I’d created over the last few weeks hadn’t published correctly. My visit to the July MVPA Conference was one of them. So, there are a bunch of extra posts today! Enjoy.
On my way to Seattle today I detoured through Portland so I could spend some time at this year’s MVPA Conference. The event was held at the Portland Expo Center. The event seemed well attended, with many different vehicles and vendors. There were over thirty jeeps, too!
I couldn’t stay at the event too long, so I didn’t get a chance to mingle much. Besides Vern and Dennis, I spent some time talking with Joe from Vintage Wiring of Maine. He and Josh were discussing a wiring harness for Josh’s GPA project. I also spoke with the guys organizing the convoy trips that honor/celebrate some of the early trans US Highways. We discussed both using eWillys to promote the event and joining the 2015 Bankhead Route Convoy for part or all of the thirty day venture.
I’ve landed back in Renton for the next week. My mother has a long ‘sonny-do’ project list. I’ll also be disassembling Biscuit. I’m gonna be busy!
Here’s a bunch of pics from today. That’s all I have time for:
