Americana Teardrops, R.I.P.
Years ago, when I first joined this group, I was chasing after information on the Americana (?) fiberglass teardrop campers, the ones with the Gull-Wing doors that had been made in Wenatchee, WA years before.
I later discovered that the entire stock of shells and parts for them were sitting in a wrecking yard in Chelan, WA, about 2 miles from where I used to live, and where my ex-wife has lived for the past 35+ years.
Last year a site member made the 2500 mile round- trip from SoCal to Chelan, over a very long weekend, and brought back enough parts to built one from scratch.
Friday night the 60,000 acre+ Reach Fire swept over that part of Chelan and apparently destroyed everything in the yard, including all of the remaining teardrop parts.
I will be in Chelan next week and will stop by and leave flowers.... sniff.....
