Well we survived graduation and out of state visitors and I just might have hooked my sister on the vintage camper craze!  Company arrived last Friday and of course, after the house tour, they had to take a tour of the 2 campers.  They were more impressed with the LoFlyte naturally since it's intact and decorated and couldn't believe how tiny the Forester is ... they of course saw it in its gutted glory so it will look even tinier once it's rebuilt!  Such slow going on that since hubby has too many irons in the fire but one day!

My sister was thrilled with how cute vintage campers are and so I gave her my Sisters on the Fly book for her trip home and now she's trying to get her friends involved and I predict within a year she'll have found a vintage camper of her own.  I did find a 1970 Frolic for sale in Norfolk but knew she wouldn't be able to take it on the plane ... it was just funny to find something right after she expressed an interest.

As many of you know, I belong to the Vintage Shasta Trailer Forum and one of the other members is in Nebraska on a road trip to pick up a Shasta Compact.  She's planning on driving up here so we can meet & greet ... what fun! 

It was so nice to be able to meet Mindy and see her darling little compact.  Even our dogs got along great ... camper folks are the neatest!
For those of you who are thinking about getting into vintage camping, watch out, you better get moving.  Oprah featured Sisters on the Fly in her new magazine so everyone will be snapping up these little gems .... be quick but be careful!
