Airstream Renovation- The Before

 

Hello blog friends,

 

Sorry I abandoned you for so long. Summer is busy! We spent 2 weeks in Iceland and it was pretty spectacular. We spent alot of time looking at ugly places like this.

We camped for the 2 weeks, in this KuKu Camper Van.

It is a tiny Euro van, with a little kitchenette, and it was rad. Growing up in the city, I didn’t think I would love camping as much as I did. But I LOVED it.

When we got back, I became obsessed with the idea of getting a camper. And I dedicated innumerable internet hours to the cause.

I obviously started with the king of all trailers, the Airstream.

They are gorgeous, and amazingly, they gain value with time. Unfortunately for me, they are already too valuable ($$) to purchase.

So we kept looking.

Airstream also makes Argosy’s. Rather than the shiny aluminum finish, they have a painted exterior. They are lighter than typical airstreams, and have larger panoramic windows.

After an exhaustive search, I found my Argosy.

Her name is Josie.

There’s alot to be desired, but the bones are there. And check the awning!

I envision lots of fun camping trips, and maybe some tailgating during football season. (It’s already reppin’ the burnt orange)

I have big big plans, and I will describe the process here. I’ll have lots of questions, and will be asking for design advice, so I hope you’ll stay tuned!

xoxo,

CBO

  1. Josietheargosy is going to be bad ass! She already is. How much fun you will have with her. I can’t believe you camped out for two weeks in your little Eurovan. You guys are too cool. Iceland looks amazing. #bucketlist

  2. Their multi bladed surfaces can be very sharp and thrown just like a knife.
    Power supply is the main factor to be considered while buying stun guns.
    Many martial arts require the use of training tools, wooden sticks shaped like swords or
    knives, or the weapons are actually wooden, such as
    the staff, nunchaku, or tonfa.

  3. Though, perhaps that’s just a reflection on my own skills.
    This will help the students understand the applications behind each weapons technique much better.
    Many people have a misconception that having stun guns for
    personal safety is illegal.

Thanks so much for your sweet comments! Rock on!
