The One that Got Away...

I've told this story before... but it's worth repeating.  There are always the ones that get away, but still I was grateful to have seen it.  This trailer was in Galena Illinois.  Our family had gone there for a day vacation,  this beauty was going down the road.  I shamelessly followed it until it stopped at a local gas station.  It was an original that had been stored away for years.  It was almost in pristine condition.  It had belonged to a family member who had used it only once or twice then stored it away for 40 years.  I offered them a few of my children for payment, but they didn't bite.  Oh well.... It was great to see it anyway.

  3. I loved the part where you offered some of your children as payment, haha. I can see how you would 'have' to follow it. That is one beautiful trailer!

  5. So was everything completely original - colouring, bench cushions etc? Great reference, if so :)
