In the beginning there was a dream...

Of this:

And this:

And this:

All with a comfortable bed.

We love to adventure, to travel, to hit the road, to explore new territories. Unfortunately we often disagree on the way to do it. I like the comfort of hotels and plush pillows, room service and real utensils. The mister likes roughing it, sleeping on the ground, the dirt road and the less experienced view. Where do we come together?

On the desire to meet in the middle. And the desire to travel freely and well.

Seems only natural to have a trailer for camping. Plush bed, real utensils, and the dirt road and a good view seen by few.

Of course, we didn't want to just 'buy a trailer'. We wanted to make our own. We discussed the virtues of our dream trailer extensively and the cookie cutter brand of small trailers just weren't going to cut it for so many reasons. With the recent popularity of scamps and tear drops, the price tags on fixer uppers were out of control and we were talking about gutting it anyway... We just needed a shell.

Enter: Big Blue Annabelle

Yep, big rusty two horse trailer. Wish us luck.
