Once Upon A Time...

Just before these days of The Flying Tortoise, there was a simply gorgeous 1952 Morris Commercial LC3 truck with a plywood box on the back. For six years the 3.2 x 2.2 x 2m space, 7 sq m, (74 sq ft) was this person's home. Totally Zen in it's simplicity and with a bed, shower, toilet, work area, galley, dining and sun deck, it was like living in a piece of art. Power came courtesy of the Sun and it was called 'Good Things Take Time'.
Nowdays you might find her in Glenorchy, near Queenstown, deep in the south of New Zealand.

  2. Hi Fiona... ha ha yes Rays Rest is one of my favourite places... Now I don't know where to find you... want to tell me? I've been looking at too many sites lately and confusion has set in...

    thanks for checking out my blog...after reading through yours - I reckon that I should consider building a mobile Field Lab some day.

  4. Found you via your comment on The Field Lab blog. Will check in for updates. Love the old truck. I see that you had a classical guitar, with well worn fingerboard. Looks like mine. Good luck with all.
