yes, after 15 car-free years i’ve realized i need occassional wheels to get myself to the coast or the forest for in-person research, and to get me and my goods to more sales events to see more of you in person more often.
in a perfect world i’d get an electric car, but their range won’t get me to the coast yet. so, after lots of research, i’ve decided to get a vintage [bio]diesel 300 TD mercedes station wagon in the meantime.
now i just need to raise the funds – about $5000 – and find a wagon in solid condition here in the pacific northwest. can all this happen in the next two weeks? october 9 is the deadline to commit to a spot at the december renegade craft fair in san francisco – a perfect inaugural trip.
with your help anything is possible! all money i’m able to make and collect in the next few weeks will go towards the car and sales events fund. if any of you know of a wagon for sale, let me know! wouldn’t a white one be tempting to draw on?
thanks in advance for your help!
