I finally got to see the Gypsy Wagon in person, during a quick trip to Utah to visit family.
The outside is completed, and it's truly a work of art, and my father gave me a tour of the incomplete inside, describing where everything was going to be.
His brother, one of my many uncles, has a cabinet shop and business, which has been slow recently because of the economy, and is going to give a quote for the cabinets and everything to finish the interior.
Right after the tour, I arranged to have the same tour again, but with a camera on so I could post a quick video tour of the Caravan on the blog. Everyone agreed this was a good idea...
...but then we went and played on the frozen lake, and did so many other family activities, since we hadn't all been together since the previous December... and then the Partner caught the flu, and then it was New Years Eve, and then I caught the flu, and then it was time to go home and the tour was never filmed.
- as a quick aside, let me just say that 18 hour car trip + sleep deprivation (following newyears) + flu is a very bad combination. I hope to never experience it again.
I know my uncle with the cabinet shop was at my parent's house on Sunday, seeing my brother Seth off on his religious mission. I am told he got a tour of the Caravan. I have no idea if they talked business at all... and since my father is at work until next Tuesday I'll have to wait until then to find out anything more.
I'll keep you posted with news when I know it,
