INDEPENDENCE DAY / by Kendra Aronson

“We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.”
William Faulkner

The 4th of July is our favorite holiday! It celebrates everything that we love and believe in! It is a day dedicated to America the beautiful, our brave military, small town USA, the land of the free, independence, the American dream, beer and fireworks, old trucks and American made trailers….  I could go on and on!! We are proud to be American, to say the least! This year we had the honor of participating in the Templeton 4th of July Parade!

We saved a 1948 Kit travel trailer from the scrapper, a while back! Someone poorly gutted the trailer before we found it..  it was in rough shape… but was still too cool, so we had to save it from the dump!! We got a wild hair a few days before the parade to paint the 48′ Kit specifically for this years 4th of July in Templeton! A good friend of ours Dave Bond of Lucky B Design, who is a local sign artist .. along with his daughter Zoe helped us paint this trailer in 24 hrs for the parade! My tribe of Tinker Tin Trixies, came out to help us wave to the crowds!! We ended up winning 2nd place for Most Patriotic in the parade, and had a blast while doing it! Thanks to our troops for letting us practice our freedom this Independence Day! Let Freedom Ring!!
