Shasta Cookin'

I finally used the  oven on my 1961 Shasta Astrodome. These old stoves have no thermostat but that is no reason to be afraid to use them. Just pick up a little oven thermometer for 4.99 at any department store and you are in business.  I used to have a wonderful vintage/antique stove in my farmhouse. It had no thermostat either.  You just learn how to cook with gas by remembering how high the flame is.
My daughter Dakota and her boyfriend came to visit yesterday and I baked cookies in the oven and made hot spiced cider on the stovetop.  We sat in the camper and I got to hear stories of their  classes at Hocking College and they listened to my stories about last weeks Surf City vacation. 
Dakota said she wished we had Little Sanitee when our family went on our long winter vacations out to New Mexico and Arizona.
I'm probably nuts or just to much of a romantic but this little trailer just seems to hold me in comfort.  Nothing but good vibes, I think she had a lot of love and fun in her younger years. Yeah, I have a handle on reality and know she's inanimate.
I am getting so anxious to get my little show on the road but have hit some stumbling blocks so I will just keep on keeping on.
Ummm, can't you just smell these cookies?

Those cookies do look tasty! I'm glad you got to share them and your beautiful little Sanitee with your daughter and her BF.

Keep on keepin on'

It will definitely pay off!

So, the stove works good. What else have you certified good-to-go in Li'l Sanitee?

Sonner or later, you will be ready live free.
