The Hacienda

My little brother turned a truck bed into a trailer, and with a carpet kit and this tent, had the greatest camper. Lightweight, could carry a ton of stuff in it and relatively easy to set up and tear down. And the best part, it looks like an old pioneer covered wagon. I wanted one. I found this picture while going through some old CDs I'd had hidden away in the garage, along with a bazillion other pictures. I have no idea exactly when it was taken, but according to the details listed on the picture file, it was last modified on 1/10 of 1999. I think that's when I scanned the original picture. I think he still has the truck trailer, although the carpet kit and tent are long gone. Look for more of these trivial pictures from my past in the future, as I continue going through the 145 CDs sitting in the box under my desk. Oh, and there's a bunch of Super 8 movies sitting in the box with them, from back when I was 12 or 13. I want to get them transferred to DVD, and maybe inflict you with them here too... (Bwyahahahahahahaha).

No covered wagon ever looked that good.
And as long as your blasts from the past are interesting, I'll read them.

Well, hopefully you'll find them all interesting, but I'm not making any promises.....

Oh man, that thing was nice, how we miss it, we were just talking about it.... Maybe I should get it back up and running.. After all we do actually still have both the carpet kit and the tent, though I am not entirely sure exactly where the tent is, the last I had remembered I had sent it your way for you to use on the old black Ford truck that now sits in my drive. Well anyhow, until I need it that is neither here nor there.

I didn't realize you still had the whole setup - I knew you still had the trailer but figured the rest was lost over the years. It would be cool to see it up and outr and about again.....
