The hippification continues



Here’s a photo of my lovely wife painting the ambulance/motorhome conversion.





It’s nice to own a vehicle you don’t mind playing with.

My lovely wife and I have a very simple arrangement. I got to buy the cool vehicle and do neat things to it like turn it into a motorhome and convert it to run on waste veggie oil.

She gets to decorate it.

I get to keep my mouth shut.

Anyway, I don’t mind at all. I guess a guy with a ponytail and beard has no reason to complain about driving a hippy van.

  1. There used to be a VW van around town that had Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs painted on the side. At the time, I wondered what kind of an idiot would drive such a vehicle. Then I had him for a college instructor and now he occasionally contributes to my blog under the nickname "the guru." Appearances don't mean squat.

    1. Indeed they don't, and it makes the wife happy.

  2. It looks like she is painting a forest. That will camouflage it and it will blend in and no one will know where you parked it when boon-docking in the woods. Of course maybe when you take a walk you should leave a trail of bread crumbs. . . I like it, want to see a finished picture of both sides. Don't forget the roof.

    1. I had forgotten the roof. There was a big medical cross up there -for helicopters I guess. Had to paint that over.

  3. About time! I have been wondering when you were going to give that vehicle a well deserved paint job! :)
