Dropping down out the south side of Joshua Tree, we spot several tarantulas sunning themselves on the road as we speed by. In my opinion, that is the best possible way to see a tarantula.
We pick out a spot on a patch of BLM land about a mile from the park and unhitch.
What is that I see gleaming in the distance? Another vintage Airstream!
Of course this requires an introduction. We have the great pleasure of meeting Steve, owner and restorer of this fantastic 1957 Caravanner, and loyal subject of Brissy the cat.
Oh to have a wall of windows like that!
As much as I love our Airstream, I consider this model to be the ultimately covetable one.
Who wouldn't want to see the sunset reflected in that fantastic end-cap?
This is Queen Brissy, the most pampered cat in the world.
Note the birch end-cap and boat running lights mounted to the ceiling.
Steve's furnace is tiny and efficient and beautiful too.
These finger-pulls for the overhead cabinets are pretty typical of the wonderful and unique details that Steve put into his trailer.
