Sisters on the Fly in Sisters, Oregon

Sisters 016 

I’m back from my first official Sisters on the Fly trip……it was so over the top!  We all had a blast.  We convoyed and took back roads, so we could stop at fun spots on the way.  This was just one of the little spots where we had lunch in the park.  I have hundreds of pictures and my camera battery ran down on the second day, so a fellow sister took a lot more for me.  Thanks, Sue!

We saw all kinds of fun things along the way.

Even some old trailers….we are always on the lookout.

This is Sue’s 1960 Holiday House, they only made this trailer for three years…the factory burned down.  This was probably the most popular trailer in our camp.  The interior pics are not very good as I took them at night…sorry.

   Sisters 003  She completely redid the inside because of dry rot….Isn’t it wonderful that she saved this fantastic vintage trailer?

Isn’t she a beauty?  It was a pleasure traveling with her.  We had walkie talkies and had a blast on the road.

 Sisters 031

  This is Francine’s trailer and I love that she matches her rig….check out what’s hanging out of the rear door!

I don’t know all the brands and often when I took photos, no one was home.  So you will see a lot of pictures and no titles. 

Sisters 030

I just love the bump out on this little beauty.  It rained so hard over the weekend that she had to tarp her trailer as it started to leak.  With these vintage trailers this is always a concern.  I even had a little come in my window.  (It was closed).

Some know the importance of proper decorations!  Great job, Bonnie!

Maren’s trailer appears to have come from Europe.  It’s tiny but really works great and so cute!

You will see some of the most darling chandeliers in these trailers…everyone’s decorating is over the top.

Sisters 048

This is Franklin out of Utah, he was running around all day, doing paint jobs for some of the Sisters.  He could not keep up with all of the orders.  He even stayed late.

 Sisters 051 

This is Marty’s trailer, she was the head of team Saturday breakfast and she made each of us an adorable apron!

 Sisters 053 

It’s all about comfort! 

Sisters 262 

Each of the aprons had our name and number on them….too cute!

I will have many more posts for you but I need to edit some of the photos and catch up around here.  Hope you enjoy this little peek into the life of a Sister on the Fly.
