    Travel: Nordegg Camping

    Nordegg camping – some of the best off the grid camping in Alberta. Awesome hikes, cool breezes, and the mountains. What else could you ask for? Let’s camp! A few weekends ago we hooked up Tipsy the Boler and headed the 3 hours southwest to camp. Check out our photos. Okay – want to know what to do in Nordegg? We hike and eat – here are some of our favourites. Nordegg Camping Windy Point Ridge Reese’s S’mores Coliseum Trail We set up camp in…

    Project: Tipsy the Boler Before

    Tipsy the Boler before – it’s hard to call this post a before since it’s actually more like an in-between. When we got Tipsy back in 2012 we travelled in her for the first time in 2014 and then spent that summer fixing her up for a 3 month road trip down to the California / Mexican border. This ‘before’ however, is the before her last overhaul. So, let’s take a look at some of these before photos. Tipsy the Boler Before See the grind…

    Project: How to Sew Boler Trailer Cushion Covers

    How to sew Boler trailer cushion covers – it’s easy! It just takes a lot of planning, patience and precision (well, sort of). First, head to your local fabric store and buy enough fabric for however many cushions you need to cover. I usually buy about 9 metres of fabric for all 9 cushions, if it’s 60+ wide. This sometimes leaves me tight margins, yet as a back-up, you can use a complimentary fabric for underneath the bunk, the banana cushion, or the two small…

    Project: Toots the Boler After

    Toots the Boler after – that’s right, we’re done Toots the Boler and here are some of his after photos. Check out the adorable paint job, the clean body look, and a few of the new shinny features. Toots the Boler After First, the outside – look at that bellyband shine! The driver’s side is nice and clean – no vents and no small window above the stove. This 1971 gem didn’t need much fibreglass work since the driver’s side was originally clean looking. Just…

    Project: Toots the Boler Before

    Toots the Boler before the overhaul. This little guy is called Toots – mainly because he had a bit of a toot-y smell to him when we picked him up in British Columbia a while back. Toots the Boler Before Toots is a 1971 Boler. He came with a stove, and ice box and a sink. Oh, and our favourite part – the driver’s side is originally vent and window (the little one by the stove) free! Looks like a sweet little project. Well, this…

The interior is all gutted, reinforced with a new floor and ready to hold some kegs. Okay, let’s check out the after photos. Nikki the Boler After Did you see the before photos? If not, be sure to check those out, too. Here’s Nikki with all her nine taps, moon caps, and polished aluminum pieces – she sure is shinny! The keg! It…

    Project: Nikki the Boler Before

    Nikki the Boler before – this is what she looked like before we did anything. No front or back windows, no interior furniture (ah, maybe she had a closet?!) and a a heck of a lot of work! We started this project as a commissioned piece back in October and finished it in March, yet we wanted to wait until Nikki (aka, Boler Bar) was picked up before we shared her before and after here on the blog. Okay, let’s check out some other before…
