Well, the ole Chevy is getting a work-out now! This past weekend Hank decided it was time to officially super-size our camper situation. It seems that the Scotty Sportsman is getting a little snug these days. Hank never could really stand up straight inside, and the two kids are having trouble sleeping in the twin bed. So we took a drive to the Northwoods and bought a '64 Airstream. The previous owner gutted it, sealed it, insulated it and then stopped. So basically we have a really nice shell. That's right. There is nothing inside. Our job is to furnish it. Which is no small task, and at this point, we're brimming over with ideas. Do we go 1940s? Or Dieselpunk it? We have a 1920s Jewel Clark stove in the barn...maybe heavy, velvet drapes for room partitions? One thing for sure is that it will not be original, and it will not be a 1950s chrome diner. But whatever we decide, it will have to wait until after shearing and making hay. Because chores just don't take a weekend off!
