Surf Trip & The Chinook

A few weeks ago, Dan and I spent the weekend at El Capitain with some friends. We finally got a chance to bring the Chinook – a 1976 popup camper that D’s been restoring for the past few months. It was completely roached when we got it…he put in new wood floors, chairs, carpet, storage beds, a sink and a mini fridge! This man is amazing! He even sewed his own curtains and my Grandpa taught him how to make custom cushions for the bench seats. It turned out pretty cool.

It was a fun weekend…a little cold, but nice to getaway with friends, sit around a campfire and cook dinner together. After 1 night in El Cap, we drove back down to Ventura for a little more surf before going home. Fun times.
