In 2 weeks, the annual Modernism Week event will be back at Palm Springs along with the vintage trailer show. Our visit last year got us up close and personal to some of the most amazing vintage trailers we have ever seen. With the baby due in just 3 months, we need to get a good week of camping in before things get really hectic. So we did it, we booked 7 nights at our favorite campground in the Coachella Valley, Lake Cahuilla County Park.

We usually don’t go to a lot of organized events and prefer to explore things on our own. Our upcoming week long stay in Lake Cahuilla will be more or less the same. Lots of walking around in the park, taking the kids to the playground with occasional trips to local establishments. Modernism Week isn’t particularly a kid friendly event anyways so I think there is no love lost when we don’t bring out kids to events like the screening of the film, Bird’s Nest: Herzog and de Meuron in China.

The vintage trailer show on the other hand is fun for all of us. The only gripe we have about it is that the event does not discount the entrance fees for children. 10 bucks a person, regardless of age. They will never appreciate the culture we try to bring into their lives. I just hope no one loses any art deco tumblers.

Just as we did last year, we will try to showcase each and every vintage trailer at the event. There are sure to be some stunning coaches on display and we hope to do them justice with our blog coverage.

If you are going to be at the event, feel free to come up and say hello. We will be the parents chasing down their kids who look like they could use a couple of Whiskey Sours. Or maybe just a Shirley Temple for the pregnant one.

over and out,

I’m so glad I’ll get to see you all again this year!
Enjoy your camping at Lake Cahuilla & the Birds Nest film, sounds fun. We’ll be camping at Happy Traveler.
I loved your recap post from last year’s event. It seems impossible to see it all while showing a trailer,
so your recap is a great way to see what I missed!
See you guys soon… Happy & safe travels.

Hard to believe it’s just two weeks away!! Absolutely loved meeting all of you last year. Bummed we won’t be there this year.
I second Kristiana’s comments – you did a fantastic job documenting the beautiful trailers from last year.
Safe travels – can’t wait to meet the little one.

PS – Kristiana….If you see Joe and his partner @ Happy Traveler will you give them a HUGE hug for us?
