I Just Had to Get …

It’s been a long time coming….I have been on the road with my trailer most of the summer.  Sometimes I miss this place but most of the time…not.

Right now, I miss my sweet vintage trailer, Driving Ms. Daisy…she is getting some much needed rehab.  I hope she will be back by the first week of September, as I am to head over to Wenatchee for a Sisters on the Fly meetup.  Not having her around has really made me realize, how much I love camping and all my sisters!  I just can’t imagine not doing this!

Idaho Camping

I snuck in another camping weekend, even with an injured ‘Driving Ms. Daisy’.  Headed over near Coeur d’Alene for some fun in the sun.

I love this area and feel lucky to visit it more than once a year.  Thanks, Mig!

It is always so peaceful and I love having all that grass around our trailers.

Here is my twin, well, almost.  This Shasta 1400 is one year newer than mine, it’s a 1970.  Luckily, ‘Driving Ms. Daisy’ got to go home with ‘Orange Cutie” for some restoration.  I am pleased as Mr. Orange Cutie, has agreed to work on my trailer, and he knows all about this model.  Yay!

All weekend we got to listen to Mig’s beautiful girls.  And they were very busy laying.

I loaned out my trailer last weekend and she got hurt.

As you can imagine I was very sad.  I think I may have found someone to fix her and will be meeting with him early next week.  I already had some dry rot issues on the lower part of this side and a door that I needed redone, so it was just time for me to get her already for winter at White Bird, ID. 

I don’t know how long it will take and how she will look, as finding vintage siding is not easy.  But it will be good to know she is truly road ready, when she is done.

As a side note, we lost power for 17 hours after another storm.  And I got stung twice on the hand by yellow jackets….and I am allergic.  What a weekend!

Simple Summer Days

my girls 028


I hope you are all spending lots of time out of doors, these beautiful days of summer.  It’s so hard to believe it is almost August!

I haven’t spent a lot of time in the yard so far this summer.  I have taken my vintage trailer, ‘Driving Ms. Daisy’ out on the road, as much as possible.  It is almost always up in the high nineties in August, so I don’t plan as many trips.  So maybe I will find some time to work in the yard…..but only when it’s cooler! 

Enjoy your summer days.
