Getting a chance to see many of the vans on only seen on screen and meeting many of the vanners on here! Winning a trophy for the van always helps!

Also stolling around in the rain was fun! Glad alcohol was involved.

I just love the Natz from cruzin on my cooler, vannin.com meet & greet, to meeting new people, to seeing old friends, to drinking too much wine (lol).
The whole Natz experience from start to finish is just wonderful. Even the thunder boomers on Saturday night were wild.

Thank you Moonlite/Performance. Great Job!

The Nats are where I can reconnect with Vanning. Even though the numbers are smaller then a generation ago the spirit is still alive. It was great to see all the vans in the show. I enjoyed being a judge. It is a great way to really see some really cool rides. The van show is an important part of Vanning because it encourages people to work on their Vans. I'm sure that almost everybody that saw the show came away with ideas and plans for their own Vans. Lawn chair volleyball with TRV was fun.(wait till next year)The best part was the people. Hope to see ya'll and more next year in NY

Well I have to say that thirty plus vans snakeing through the small two lane roads on the way to vanners night out was totaly awesome! The locals looked blown away! At one piont there was a steep hill and as all the vans hit their kick downs and opened up the four barrels the roar was deafining. People were coming running out to see what all the noise was about!
"Hey Billy Bob come take a looksee at all the vans"
But I think the highlight for me was all the vans that that were in the show n shine and the lite show. That was the most that I have seen in my twelve years of vannin.
Good job guy's!

Just being there was a highlight for me. Although the bright sun kicked my butt a little bit.
