The Hunt

Let's start in the beginning. After reading an issue of "Mary Janes Farm" magazine in which there was an article on the "Sisters on the Fly" I was determined to find an older travel trailer. I looked in the normal places, Craigs List, Ebay etc. but couldnt find something I liked much less something I could afford. So I began backyard and field shopping. You know thats were your driving down the road checking out other peoples stuff in their yards.

One afternoon on my way home from work I spied what I believed to be "the one". After watching it for weeks (no for sale sign ever appeared) I sent the hubby over to knock on the farmhouse door. The owner of the camper was a nice fellow but he said he wasn't interested in selling. I was so bummed! As the summer progressed and the economy tanked I passed the camper on a daily basis, it never moved. So in the early fall I sent hubby back over and this time the gentleman said things had changed. He would be interested in selling. Imagine just how excited I was at this point, my very own camper was waiting for me. After some discussion and folding green in hand we made the deal. 450.00 and it was mine! YEAH!!!!
