↟ Break Away Tale NR 80 // @theoutpostgang⠀
This is too long so I have to send it in two messages:⠀
It all started one late night when Chelsy came home after working a 20 hour shift. We were grinding away in the restaurant industry, just watching our lives fly by. Chelsy was managing a butcher shop, while I was curating beverage programs and bartending. That was it, we had had it! We needed some adventure! So, we packed up, grabbed our boxer pup, and took off on a camping trip through Oregon.⠀
Along the way, we met up with a family friend who had a vintage trailer. It had never occurred to us that we could just live in something like this. We were smitten. Shortly after we returned, we set out to find our home. The Sunrader seemed a black sheep in the world of RVS (small, underpowered, fiberglass, funky).⠀
When one popped up on Craigslist, we jumped at the opportunity. It was love at first sight and we named him, Bodhi, after our love for the spirit and movie that is, Point Break. We spent a year patching holes, swapping an axle, and ripping out carpet bits to make Bodhi our home. The feeling of leaving it all behind and reducing what we need has been indescribable. We don’t know where we’ll end up, but we know everything will forever be changed.
