That's one nice anniversary present! It our 30th anniversary tomorrow, but I sure don't anticipate getting a gift that nice! I would be happy if my DH helps me put up an interior wall in my Bambi II project. Enjoy that Caravel! Looks really nice.

Thanks for the kind words. We were at Kirk Creek, just south of big sur. It's our favorite place on the coast now that limekiln is closed.

I was hoping you'd say that. We have reservations there for early April.

It's a great place, site 22 is the best in the camp. Camp host Rick is a great guy. Have fun and enjoy!

Wow

Good looking Caravel and tow vehicle.

We remember Pismo Beach from a trip at least 20 years ago. Looks like a good spot to revisit someday. Thanks for the info on location.

What exactly is that TV?

Awww, it's too bad you didn't say end of March... I'll be there on our second trip with Knight (and hopefully the first with a bed and some furniture) on 3/23-3/25.

Others are welcome to come - just checked and saw 3 sites available still...

It's a 66 Ranchero that I've put a fuel injected engine and an overdrive transmission in. Makes it much more driveable.

Cool Rig!

Wow, what a CUTE CUTE Caravel: would love to see some photos of the interior, too, if that isn't too personal. Your whole rig is totally awesome (as the kids say).
