Arizona Bus Club

The ABC is an Arizona-based, family-oriented club, dedicated to the restoration, preservation, and enjoyment of the Volkswagen Transporter. We are a collection of drivers and hobbyists whose preferred mode of transportation is old air-cooled VWs, preferably buses. If that sounds like the kind of crowd you'd like to hang out with, come to our monthly general meeting or look us up at a show. The club is open to all Type II owners and all VW enthusiasts. 

Thanks and enjoy your Bus!

From there we travel the Apache Trail (aka Hwy-88) out to Tortilla Flats for breakfast and then head to Burnt Corral campground on Apache Lake for some R&R.

All of our friends in the ABC are invited to join us for the Tucson Bus Mob campout on April 10,11,12.  We will be going to Happy Valley, a beautiful place on the east side of the Rincon Mountains at about 4000' elevation.  The surrounding area is desert and high mountains, but the riparian camping area is a huge grove of sycamores. If you went to the Dragoons two years ago, the area is fairly similar, except that you will find wild turkeys wandering through the campground in the mornings.  There is plenty of room for lots of buses in a bigger area.  It is the same primitive camping so I will be bringing the restrooms.  You must bring your own water and anything else you will need.  A few of us will make it out on Thursday to stake out our areas and we should have more than enough room in the campground.
To get to Happy Valley, take I-10 east past Tucson.  About five miles before the turnoff to Sierra Vista, take Mescal Rd. (exit 297) and head north.  There will be about five miles of paved road then about fifteen miles of graded dirt road.  Follow the road past the ranch, up over the ridge, then down into Happy Valley.  You will know you are there because of the smile on your face as you view the beautiful mountains in front of you.  You will pass another large ranch on your right and a turnoff to a camp area on your left.  Keep going over the next low hill and then turn left into Turkey Creek.  If you want to check it out on Google Earth or on your GPS, the UTMs are 12 S 549692E; 3557563N.
