Sputnik Goes

Yesterday I had a video chat with “L”, who commented on my recent post where I asked for tips on the Photographic Triangle. She caught me when my hair was in rollers, so the video chat was one sided for awhile.

“L” and her husband “A” are just finishing the process of restoring a 1964 Airstream, and it’s gorgeous. They close escrow on their house in a week and are going to be moving into their trailer full time!

After our photo discussion, “L” had a ton of questions about Airstreaming and full-timing. We talked about everything from hitches to dogs on the road. Hopefully we’ll see them in the southwest this winter.

Dinner Last Night:
Goan Black Eyed Pea Curry with Coconut Milk. I skipped the tamarind because I didn’t have it. Overall it was good, though I thought the liquid could have used a little thickening. I served it with salad and homemade naan (in which I used the suggested avocado/lemon mixture instead of vegan yogurt) – delicious.

If you’re interested in a really good black eyed pea stew, I’d recommend Richa’s.

    I love that you put your hair in big rollers! I clicked through and discovered your previous post with the photos. We spend most of our time with full hookups so I have access to my hair dryer, but to be honest I hate dealing with it everyday. I prefer to let my hair air-dry, but then it looks limp or gets weird waves in it around my ears. I think about cutting it short almost weekly. Then I remember how awful it looked in college when I last wore it short!

      We wouldn’t still be boondocking if I didn’t find the rollers as a solution. They can be a little annoying to put in, but I actually prefer them now over the hair dryer now!
