Susy and Rob:

I just wanted to say that I have so enjoyed your postings and enjoyed visiting your site. Wish that I retained some of the 3 weeks of Italian that I took many years ago. I only remember a phrase that the professor taught us that was frequently used by Italian cab drivers. I won't post it here.

Anyway, here's our Burro trailer on its first trip out west. The one in front of the lake was at Yellowstone park. The other is in front of Crazy Horse, a huge carving being built in the likeness of a famous native American.

And our Burro is fully equipped to enjoy wine also.

Rob,

I prefer a nice Chianti, from a clear jug, that sits by the end of the table, on the ground...

but without Fabre beans

Oh, interesting. Our trailer does kind of look like a big piece of butter, doesn't it?

In English, a burro is a donkey, so we have a picture of a donkey on the side.

Pronto = hallo
Ciao = aloha, Hi, bye bye, etc.

if "pronto" is used as an action, a verb, it mean I'm ready = io sono pronto

Okay, Rob. You asked for pics of my Casita. I have only had it 1 month and it lives in my backyard until the weather gets warmer and my husband and I learn what we are doing!

I really enjoy all of your posts - keep it up and don't forget to show us pictures of your beautiful country. Of course my country USA is beautiful too (especially Texas!).

Patty

Susy:

Here's the interior of our trailer. It is 13 feet and was built in 1978. We bought it on ebay last spring and cleaned it up. We made it blue and white to match our 1968 Volkswagen pickup, so we can enter them into Volkswagen car shows. We entered it with our Eurovan (Caravelle) last summer and won our category. The pickup needs to be fixed, though, before it can pull the Burro.
The Burro is parked right now, though, waiting for good weather and some time off. I teach, so we have to wait until I have a break, and my husband can take vacation time.

HI Cindy!

the interior of your trailer is very very nice!!! I think that the FG van are more beautifull than the others!!!
It semms younger than its age!
Sure you will gain another prize!!!

I teach too and I know that it's difficult to have a break beyond the vacations predisposed by the school

Thank you Cindy for show me the interior of your van!

Hi Rob & Susy,

If you would like to see photos of our fiberglass trailer (which is a 5th wheel) you can see them here:

And, here are pictures of LOTS of fiberglass trailers at last year's Oregon Gathering:

Nancy, I love your trailer! We hope someday to find a good deal on a fixer Scamp 5th wheel so we can set it up very much like your's. The added storage and better bed set up suits us.
