When Jorge (of Ms Tioga fame) suggested to us at the turn of this last year that we start a blog, well, we did not know what to think! Events beyond my control gave me a little time to give the blog thing a shot and I did. As the summer moves along I find that I am getting behind on the projects here so time is getting precious. If you dont see a post or the odd photo for a day or so, well, dont worry. I really do appreciate you guys reading about our little family. I expect a lot of my future blogs will be about work around the place and the weather. So much in life is involved in having a real true adventure, however, little is spoken about the work, time, and energy that goes into making the adventure happen! I am attaching a photo of the type of classic motorhome we will set forth in on this years grand road trip. She is a 1968 Travco - 26 running feet of prime Atomic Age Styling - sleek and air-o-dynamic in a fashion that pierces the air while moving!! Kawena has named her 'The Beauty'. Vintage Detroit Dodge Drivetrain. 318 v-8. Smooth. Economical.
You know, when Weng first arrived in the USA she wanted a really big car. Not important the year and no more than $1,000 . We settled on a really nice condition 1975 Caddy. Fleetwood Brougham with gangster rear window and champagne pink paint. 500 cubic inch engine! Got 6 miles to the gallon and weighed 2.5 tons.
The beauty weighs, loaded, 8 tons, has a kitchen, bath, dining and sleeping quarters, 120v. and gets 10 miles to the gallon. WE HAVE GOTTEN SMARTER!!
Thanks for checking back in.
