Where to find oil on the way south?

Postby Jerry Campbell » Tue Oct 28, 2008 8:02 pm

Hello friends,
To day I flipped the switch and the bus started running on WVO.
We are leaving Oregon heading for Mexico on or about Thanksgiving. It doesn't look like I'm going to have time to get my collection trip together before we go so I'm looking for places to get oil from here to there. I will be full when we leave here. Does anyone know where I can get some oil in California, Arizona or Nevada?

Thanks for the offer Jeff.
I,ll let you know if we get to the area.
Haven't been there in a few years. I lived in Pacific Grove in '67 '68. Man was that a fun place to be.
We go to a beach on the pacific south of Puerto Vallarta. TOOOOO much fun.
Thanks again
