Hi, I am Kim from Seattle

Hi,

I'm Kim from Seattle. We just bought a restored 1985 Uhaul after searching for a camper that our car could tow for many years. So excited to hit the road with it and excited to "camp dry" here in the PNW.

The people who restored it painted it bright orange. Usually, I love things that are restored to original condition, but this little orange egg is so cute.

- Kim

Welcome to FGRV Kim and congrats on your new egg. I had to chuckle as you may have just named your TT..........Little Orange Egg or Easter Egg......

Welcome, Kim, and congratulations on joining the fun world of egg trailers! Dry is good.

How about some pictures when you have a chance?

Hi, Kim, Welcome to FGRV!


I'd like to invite you and yours and the orange egg to attend the SAG (Seattle Area Gatheirng) next fall at Dash Point. We're meeting on September 20-24th; the biggest day is Saturday, the 23rd. Friday night we're planning a weenie roast at the host site around the fire ring; Saturday we'll have open house (for everyone to look at everyone else's trailers) and then some dog events (not many) and a group potluck in the central field. Everyone is welcome, but those from Seattle are especially encouraged to come and get to know their neighbors!


We have five or six rigs signed up already, several with dogs.

Welcome, Kim! Orange....sounds beautiful!!! And I agree, we'd love to see photos!!!!

The colour of your trailer will add to its attraction. As you have probably already figured out, these little units are somewhat of a novelty to curious folk who will want to see inside it wherever you go. Yours will be hard to "stealth", so be prepared to show it off.

And just thinkin'......do "dry camping" and "PNW" belong in the same sentence????

Wink Unique Egg Colors

We bought a dark chocolate egg but coated it with vanilla.
And we call it Peanut. (One shell, two nuts).

Couldn't quite bring ourselves to go as far as the caravan from Australia!

Your satsuma egg is unique!

BEST
Kai

Maybe Sunkist will sponsor you in some small way.
Or, there is Orange Crush.
