We bought a 1963 Globetrotter today!

On the drive home everywhere started looking like a campsite.

We were driving through the Olympics, the Hood Canal, the Puget Sound & the Ferry took us over the Straits of San Juan de Fuca.

I am beside myself with joy.

The creative touches are great. You should continue doing just what you like with this little treasure. Make it 100% your own!

Thanks. That is exactly what we intend to do. I am already looking for an upholsterer.
