Mark Janke of Overland Trailer – Featured Northwest Artist

We’ve known Mark for quite a while now and I was super stoked to hear that his documentary Historic Camping & Teardrop Trailersย was recently featured at the Spokane International Film Festival. And not only is the documentary going to make you want to purchase, refurb, or build your own teardrop camper, it is also a not-for-profit production. Each copy of the film you purchase provides funds to send a copy of the dvd to schools in the United States, England, Canada, South Korea, New Zealand, and Singapore.

And of course that means sun. ๐Ÿ™‚ However, I’ve been enjoying that sun through my windows because I’ve been indoors writing. Having finished quite a bit of the research for book 2, I got to sit down and start on my favorite part, the first draft. So exciting. Other than writing the week was filled with cooking (I even found an onion with a heart), cuddly dogs, a more intimate study of our room, and of course with valentines day stopping by there may have been some chocolate involved. ๐Ÿ™‚
