This page is dedicated to the covered wagon we built and traveled in on a cross country pilgrimage from Santa Fe NM to Western Massachusetts in the summer of 2010. Boy, what fun it was! We built the wagon on a 4x8' utility trailer and towed it with Libby's 4 cil. sedan. The construction was wood with a canvas top. Our goals were to build a portable living structure that was light and cheap. Traveling cross country was an experience in itself with many reflections roused on our country's landscapes, farms, economy, and culture.
For a general overview of the completed structure check out the Grand Tour post.
