Giddy Up Part 1: The Trailers

Hi Folks! Sorry to be away so long. I was off debuting my little trailer at the Sisters on the Fly 2007 Giddy Up. It was quite the adventure! I'll have to split the narrative (and pictures) between several posts.

The Giddy Up officially started at Usery Park near Phoenix, but for me it started when I took off from Reno. I spent the first night in Tonopah. Here is the lovely sunrise over Tonopah, NV.

I joined up with a caravan of fine folks (and their trailers) in Rock Springs, AZ. This was the "Northwest Caravan" that had traveled down from Washington, Idaho and Utah, collecting folks along the way.

We traveled together into Usery Park and were greeted by AZ Sisters with cold Coronas and (my favorite part) someone to back our trailers into place for us.

There were a total of 100 vintage trailers at the event. Plus a few more sisters in tents.

Most of the trailers were painted with custom graphics and decorated beyond amazing. The most common theme was cowgirl, but with lots of variations. Everyone was fabulously friendly and happy to show off their trailers. Here are some shots:

What a hoot! Glad you made your debut, and I sure wish some of those sisters had blogs to I could read what they thought of your fabulous little home.
