Wheels.6

From Rags to Restoration

--------

{Wheels.6.8}: '85 VW Vanagon; '89 Mazda 323 {patrice} Tue, 24 Feb 2004 20:05:12 CST (18 lines)

I've added some other touches I like, such as drilling in brass snaps
so my curtain panels snap on-- way better than hanging curtains that
let in light as they hang down-- and away from-- the body of the van.

I don't think I'd be that comfortable in a pop-top-- I tend to travel
in the northern (cold) climes...at reststops I don't feel safe
sleeping where only rip-able canvas stands between me and "The
Highway Slasher"...and in the woods critters go through fabric easier
than metal or glass, too.  But if I was in Florida I might feel
differently.

And I never wanted the stove and sink set-up-- I don't cook much at
home, why would I start on the road, what with all those restaurants
I'm passing ;-)  A plug-in cooler and a 12V water boiler that plugs
into the cigarette outlet are plenty for a hot cuppa tea or soup on
the road, and sammich fixings.  Without those I feel like I have more
room in the GL for clothes, the cat's stuff (he travels with) and
bedding than I would a camper.
