We spent our last week in Virginia working hard to finish Charlie for his maiden voyage. During this last push we had to troubleshoot a faulty stove, a furniture kit that was not made for our van (see photo of Paul’s lack of headroom), a dead battery, and two sets of cushions that needed to be re-made. In the end, though it was hard work we think it was worth it. We love Charlie and so has everyone he has met so far.
Enjoy, Mari & Paul
