Lately, I have been revisiting my obsession with vintage campers. A late 50s Shasta to be exact. Maybe it’s because we’ve been couped up for so long and the thoughts of travelling across Canada in a little vintage ditty is exactly what my soul is screaming for right now! To make the dream complete, a shiny candy apple red 1957 Chevy, with those wing like tail lights, would be the perfect vehicle to tow our red and white chariot!
I dream of going from destination to destination and then setting up camp near lakes or vintage looking trailer parks. Putting down the awning, stringing it with fairy lights and setting up our portable BBQ. Then we would sit back with our cool drinks and meditate to the sounds of birds and other musical sounds of nature.
While we are travelling, we could visit antique markets along the way and hunt for treasures.
One of these days I will finally watch Lucille Ball in the movie The Long, Long Trailer. It looks like a blast!
You will need to excuse me while I go back to dreaming.
Why does the theme song from the Littlest Hobo keep playing in my head? Maybe it is time to hit the roads!
“The Long, Long Trailer” was one of the last movies that my father and I watched together before his death so it holds a special memory for me but for that reason only. Unfortunately the film is too much Ricky and not enough Lucy. 😦
That is a great memory. xo
Sadly, when they worked together it usually was too much Ricky. Thank goodness she started doing her own shows.
