Yesterday Was Good...!
I finally found just what I needed to make my day! I bought a Coleman pop-up!
True, it isn't a new one, but I'm a good example that being an older model is sometimes a good thing! Now, just in case you forgot where I'm taking this little rascal, let me show you the view from what will be my front yard!
While I am building my cabin or shack, I'll be able to sleep off the ground in this. I found it on Craigslist at a good price...a VERY good price! The canvas isn't sagging, the young man who set it up didn't put the inside braces completely in place. When we went over to see it, we finished putting the braces in place, and it stretched out like it should.
The inside is in wonderful shape for an older camper. No tears or rips in the canvas, no mold or mildew, no signs of water leaks, no holes in the screening, no burns or discoloration on the counters, all cabinet doors latch properly. All is good!
The small table you see can come out altogether, or be laid down to make another bed. Sleeping six is not hard, but there will only be one...me! So I just need one bed, and the rest can be used as sitting spots if and when I have visitors.
Plenty of windows, plenty of light, and nice and cozy inside. What else could anyone want? A good book, a fresh pot of coffee, and a LOT of piece and quiet!
Now, my friends, let's get a fresh cup of coffee, sit at the patio table a bit, and think about all the adventures ahead of us. Happy Memorial Day, everyone!
