A very exciting time: a call for Vintage Campers, Vardos, Caravans, Buses, Vans and Tiny Houses

Good morning!

It is a very exciting time to be working on The COMET. As I mentioned yesterday, The COMET and I will be making an appearance at the Tumbleweed Tiny House Workshop in Boston next month, as well as Derek DEEK Diedricksen’s Tiny House Summer Camp weekend in July. Now I am planning an event at a campground in Brattleboro, VT that honors vintage campers (and in the COMET’s case, looks to the future while honoring vintage trailer past) and tiny houses. It really is a dream come true for me. It’s almost too exciting! If you are in the Northeast and have a vintage trailer or are a vintage trailer enthusiast, please get in touch with me via the CONTACT page, as I am looking for more vintage campers/converted vans/gypsy caravans/custom buses/unique mobile dwellings of all types to come to this event in Brattleboro. People who bring a vintage camper/van/caravan/etc will get a special discount at the campground. Similarly, if you have a tiny house on wheels that you would like to display at this rally/event, please get in touch with me! It’s going to be great to have vintage campers next to tiny cabins. Anything unique and on wheels!

London 2012

Hey readers!

I mentioned this yesterday, but just want to say that I’ll be traveling for the next few days and will only have limited internet access, so you won’t see as many posts as usual this week. I will post as often as I can, and will try to find some cool European caravans to take pictures of to show you all!

I’ll be visiting London, England, and will be going to the Design Museum London, where I will hopefully see some sustainable designer’s work, and I’ll post pictures of my favorite exhibits!

Like I said, when I return next week I’ll be back with a bang, so stay tuned. We’ll have our first guest post and some other neat stuff, and definitely a DIY project or two, so watch out!

The COMET has been really coming together this week, thanks to the help of many wonderful people/businesses helping me figure out what I need to make The COMET the best off-grid tiny mobile classroom/home ever! As I gather materials, I’ll post about what things I’ll be using in The COMET and why those things are particularly suited to a mobile tiny house. Hopefully it’ll be a little warmer out soon so I can start working outside and get down to business!

Thank you to everyone who’s been following my project and the blog, and everyone who’s been reading along. It means a lot to me!
