This picture would have been so much better with sound! Cheri (known to many as Grammahugababy online), was having a great time blasting around by our camp on Gary's cool little trike. The perma-grin on her face was accompanied by plenty of laughter! Gary, gary gearloose, or gg for short, (lower case intentional) is one of our great friends from the Port Angeles Washington area.
Gary's new van on the left above is a bit larger than his old VanTramping vehicle of choice, the Scion Box shown below. He was able to cary both his trike, which does fold up, and his home built Kayaks in either vehicle and still have room for himself and his other stuff.
We have been really enjoying the many visitors we have been getting here in Quartzite! I guess there must be something about the area that makes it desirable this time of year. Hmmm, I wonder if it has to do with the weather? Yesterday, the temps were a very comfortable high of 78 and a low of 47 with clear skies and sun. I believe my mother may have been annoyed with me for calling to "share" this info with her :) Apparently, Minnesota isn't as comfortable right now, I thing she mumbled something about 25 below zero windchill... I probably should not repeat the rest!
While gg has moved on already to his next destination, we still get to enjoy spending time with Cheri and little Tony the Tiger, who is easily one of the sweetest Yorkies anywhere! There are more VanTramps and friends on the way. We can't wait to see you! To everyone else, seriously, what are ya waiting for?
My wife and I are still very much "Vanbassadors" Even though we are planning future changes to our lifestyle. Our 97 Roadtrek 170P is likely always going to be my favorite project and I have a ton of new mods planned for it! Our future homestead and land goals are full of ideas that will work for the mobile lifestyle and the "docking station" is going to combine the best parts of both! Stick around and lets see what fun we can share!
