What is Granny Grose's Buses? Well, it's just another reason to bring out the Bus or Bug and camp with the family, along with fellow Volkswagen owners. We have been camping with Granny Grose for 10 years.
My family and I have always enjoyed camping. But never experienced the fun and absolute joy of camping in a VW Bus! On my 22nd birthday, I bought my first Bus. We started attending VW Shows. Met some of our closest friends through our love of Buses. We would camp before and after shows. And we always had talked about starting our own lil' campout.
A quick planned first GGB campout was held in May 2005 with just 8 Buses. In 2006, we jumped to 34 Buses! 2007, Granny Grose's saw 43 Buses from 12 States, 2008 grew again to 46 Buses. In 2009, GGB peaked at 75 Buses & 5 Bugs! In 2010, we hosted 70 Buses, 2 Bugs, & 1 Thing from 14 states and 2 countries! May of 2011....somehow on a soggy weekend...we had a record 76 Buses! And yet again, in 2012, we bit the record by one...77 Buses(82 VWs)!!
