summertime always has us thinking of the great american roadtrip. the griswalds. taking the long way to every destination. not having a destination. stopping at every brewery, winery, or other type of factory along the way…stopping so dad can read every historical marker at every juncture. listening to mom say ‘look girls, look’ every 15 seconds.
ultimately, any roadtrip = memories. and that, my friends, is all that matters.
this popped up on our facebook page a few weeks ago. and we love it immensely. everything about it makes us happy. and i can’t quit staring at the picture…cadillac ranch, jg tattoos, jg grafitti, 2 girls (mandy & chandra), 1 roadtrip, 5 million memories.
read on…and be inspired.
“Cadillac Ranch – last stop on the Fall 2011 TX Road Trip to see the Junk Gypsies & Warrenton Antique Week!
96 hours to rally 3 states,
cover 2,224 miles,
burn 125 gallons unleaded with
1,425 songs to choose from
3 cowboy hats and a wedding dress…
2 junk gypsy tatts
6 new girl friends at the community dinner table
1 piece of Royer’s strawberry rhubarb
1 Pistol Annies soundtrack later and we finally understood what this phenom was really about.
COUNTLESS memories that we will hold near and dear to our hearts forever!
Inspiration from the Junk Gypsies set our hearts dreaming of the open road to explore the curiosity sparked by rock & roll, cowgirl, bad a$$, eclectic images mixing from new clothing & necessities to antiquely fabulous “junk” that no girl should live without.
I have never seen anything like it in my life – God Bless Antique Week, the Junk Gypsies, Royer’s and all the amazing people we met along the way! We will never forget this trip and look forward to future run ins with the Junk Gypsies and the amazing people who keep this magical moment going from season to season – decade to decade. I love you & thank each and every one of you who take part preserving this amazing time capsule of Americana. Passing on different stories, and treasures for a new day.
The Junk Gypsies are amazing & we can’t wait to check out their HGTV show coming out in 2012!”
here’s to y’all, mandy & chandra!! we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking us on your epic roadtrip!
