Brian and Tede are camping near us in their 5th Wheel. They’re from Vancouver Island in Canada and are vacationing in the South West for a month.
When Brian’s mom passed away she left a big collection of gnomes. Now, whenever Brian and Tede go on a trip, they bring a gnome and place it somewhere special. When they first started doing it, they found their gnomes were getting stolen, so now they place the gnomes a bit more off the beaten path and include a message on the bottom explaining that it’s a memorial.
They have about 20 more gnomes left to place, which means 20 more vacations and continuing memories of Brian’s mom.
