Donate to the Dream

I have a dream. If you haven't noticed from my artwork and various photos, I
love 70's Winnebago Braves. I love their boxiness, their heinous shag carpet, the fake wood paneling, and the flying W gracing the sides.

I was going to move to San Francisco at the end of January 2010 to go to grad school, but it just didn't feel right. I had to ask myself, “If I was going to do anything I wanted right now what would it be?” My answer was, “If I could do anything I wanted, I would buy an early 70’s Winnebago Brave and be a vagabond, chronicling my journeys on my blog and in the form of a book which I would write over the course of my wanderings. Preferably with a dog and/or friend.” So. The next day I went on craigslist and found the perfect Winnebago. PERFECT. It was in Washington near Gig Harbor. Unfortunately he sold it before I could get down to buy it. I am heartbroken, folks. HEARTBROKEN, I SAY! But my quest is not over. I will find my perfect soulmate of a Winnebago yet, and when I do (and when I have sufficient funds to take said journey) I will take you all with me, through this blog!!! As of now, I’m still going to be taking grad courses, but just online and I’ll be raising money for my life-dream here at home in Alaska.

So, all that being said, I have decided to start accepting sponsors. Not because I want to make money off of my blog, but to help fund my life-dream of Winnebago-ing. My friend Tieka suggested that I offer a spot, for those of you who don't have anything to advertise, to donate to the dream. I thought that was a cool idea, so here goes!

Some girls like jewelry, I like ugly old cars (my car is a 1970 Chevrolet El Camino, which many people find revolting, haha!). As soon as Craigslist produces my love in RV form (and some jerk doesn’t buy it right out from under me!), I will prepare for the ultimate vagabond journey. My journey won’t have a destination, but I will wander in a semi-logical manner, finding old friends from college and visiting them, perhaps some family members, and maybe settling down and being a waitress or dishwasher for a few weeks to replenish my gas money.
