'The Greyt Escape': Greyhounds are 'Greyt' pets!
Little did I know how much adopting 2 retired racing greyhounds would change my life! They didn't like staying in hotels and we quickly outgrew my little Westfalia Van. When I first saw the Escape trailer, I thought that might be the perfect solution to my desire to travel and camp with the hounds. They could feel safe (just like a big dog crate) and I could still camp.
Molly and Jack settled right in to camp living. They learned to hike, loved the beach and stayed cool and happy inside the trailer when I went off on adventures without them. A couple of x-pens set up around the door to the trailer gave them a mini-yard so they could lay in the shade if I was out around the campfire.
They camped with me for 8 years. Saying Goodbye to the Hounds

'En Plein Aire' - An art term meaning painting outdoors.
With the new trailer (2016), I'll be traveling even more and spending more of my life outdoors. Hopefully, I will also be doing a lot more art - so the new name seems right on several levels.
I'm teaching Fay Wray to camp - so far, she hasn't rejected the idea entirely.
