This is on the way out of the camper, on the right is a storage closet that we have a microwave in, and store the food. The couch area that you see there actually pops up to bunk beds. Primordial dwarfs would be comfortable. Aaron does ok.
This is what you see when you first walk in the camper. It's a work in progress. I named the camper "The Happy Squirrel" after finding that picture of the squirrel drinking a cup of coffee online. The squirrel looked so happy, and I don't know, it was just one of those things that can't be explained why we named the camper 'The Squirrel". It gives me a good theme though. The name of the paint I used was called Seasoned Acorn. I think it was providential.
Here's another pic of the same area, you can see the floor and the fridge a little better. I wanted to be comfortable and have the conveniences of a fridge, microwave and toaster oven. I can crank out some tasty meals here between that and the grill.
I force The Squirrel on friends and family. I make people go in it even if they don't want to~ It's my playhouse. I honestly wouldn't care if we ever really took it anywhere or not. It's a lawn ornament!
Here another dark photo...it's of Aaron and his Math Tutor. Holly Keithley. She is an absolute gem. She is actually the one we bought the camper from! She was so excited to see how we'd fixed it up. Aaron and I often have school out in the camper. Friends come over and we sit and have a glass of wine. We call it Squirrel Therapy.
Here's a nifty little thing you can make for camping. Fire starters. I love these for so many reasons. The main reason is that they WORK. So easy to make a fire with these. The second reason is that they are made from garbage. The frugality of that really excites me!
Empty paper egg cartons, left over candle stubs and dryer lint.
Carefully melt the candle stubs on low heat while you divide your dryer lint equally.
After the wax is melted, pour a generous portion into each section.
Now just let that dry completely. Tear them apart. (sorry, no pic of that!). You just light the paper and boy does it take off. I keep mine in a Ziploc bag in my camping tote. They work so well! I'm going to make a few little flannel drawstring bags and put about 8 in each, and give them as little gifts to all my camping friends.
