My first Tin Can Tourists rally

I love vintage trailers.
I own and am in the process of refurbishing a 1980 Sunline SunSpot. I participate in the Teardrops & Tiny Travel Trailers forum.
I've even met the owners of two teardrops, and toured their rigs.

But so far, every gathering and trailer rally within 8 hours' driving distance has fallen on a weekend with a major family event, or a chemo weekend, or a weekend during the time I'm was still recovering from surgery.

Until this weekend.
I decided that I was still a little too chemo-brained to haul my own trailer to Sampson State Park, and to try to camp in the deluge we've been having since Thursday--but I sure could drive down for the day!

And I saw the coolest trailers. Many old Airstreams and Shastas, a Yoder Toter teardrop, a couple I couldn't identify, and the coolest of all--a 1960s Mostard Yvonne in near original condition, imported in the 60s from Sweden and only on its second owner.

That's the Yvonne in the picture. And it was even cooler inside.

  1. I have checked a few times to see if you have updated your blogg and you have not wrote since September. So hope all is ok and that you are getting through chemo without it draining you too much :}
