It's A Sickness Really

So as much as I love my Lil' Lemon Drop and could never think of parting with her, I have my sites on a new project. After camping this past weekend a few things came to light for me:

* I am in need of a self contained unit.
* I really could use one more sleeping area.

I go camping minus the Mr most of the time. It is the thing the kids and I do to help pass the time when he is away. The campground we stayed at was wonderful but the bathhouse was about a 1/4 mile away. Not good for a momma with 3 kids that have to stay in eye shot of me. So I talked to my Daddy and he found some other options for me. Here is one of them. Please excuse the photo quality it is from a cell phone.

This is a 1972 Shasta Starflyte.


I am already dreaming up a new color scheme for her. The fact that she has her original wings is always a plus in my book. I am thinking of a nice airy interior seaside cottage style....I mean we do live at the ocean after all.

I would love to hear your thoughts. The idea of getting to do another project with my Dad makes me happy. And coming up with the inside look and outside color pattern is something I love.

Oh I love her! She is more the size of our 'Pearl' which is in my opinion a perfect size. We actually have three beds(two double and one bunk). My favorite part of camping with a trailer is the toilet. At my age I usually have to go at least once at night. What will you do with your Lemondrop? will you keep her in the family or sell?

You are kidding me! Eeeek! I love it! And what a special daddy for being so supportive! :) Can't wait to see it all! Guess I should have posted some shots of our little place. And guess what- we're prob upgrading a little too. Lol! It IS an illness!

Kerrie-I am keeping the lil Lemondrop cause I just can't imagine parting with her! Plus I prob won't get this one ready until next camping season. After 3 babies I too get up at night at least once to use the potty. I am happy for the shower to rinse my little ones off in at night.

SH-What are you upgrading to??? Dying to know!
