About this project

Hi There! My name is Paula Clouse and I am a licensed professional counselor by day and a starving artist/photographer/bohemian gypsy traveler by night.

It has been a dream of mine to travel across the U.S. while creating original art, photographing and journaling...and then to create a book entitled "Kitsch, Caravans and Vintage America." (catchy title, don't you think?) YOU, along with Hubby, faithful companion Webster the Wonder Dog and I will tour assorted off-the-beaten-path campgrounds, (vintage travel trailers abound!), documenting via my own original art, photos, journal and blog entries the kitschy, campy, vintage and weird!

The project photo is a picture of our vintage canned ham camper, and a piece of Old Route 66. We traveled 3500 miles last summer on Route 66...photos, orignal art and journal entries will include these amazing (okay, a lot of them were just "weird") finds throughout vintage America!

Join as a backer...and come along for the ride of a lifetime! YEEHAW! Hang on to your hats, folks...the canned ham is "saddled" and ready to ride!
