  1. I often wander past a gypsy caravan on my nocturnal wanderings, it is a fine thing to see the woodsmoke against the twilight and pass by knowing there is someone living the quiet off grid life well away from the urban sprawl. The caravan is not quite as decorative and far more travel worn compared to those on Jim Tolpins web site but it has the same construction and character. Always a pleasure to see it and say hello to the owner.
