When I was about 10 at school they taught us a song and fragments have been in my memory ever since. Enough to give me a 'thing' for caravans. It never conjured up the pulled-by-car -aluminium versions. Always a gypsy caravan.
Added to that was Will's approaching birthday which, because I had accidentally had to reveal the bridge early, had no surprises left.....
So I built a caravan.
As always, I had a lot of fun building it. I made a couple of textures and bought one and used a few existing ones. I didn't get it finished on time. Too late when I started it. And to tell l the truth, the doors were a complete pain. Was it SL or me doing something? I don't know... but the result was that the doors kept leaping away from their right place. I cant tell you how many times I have put them back. Then the whole thing went phantom just when I thought it was all sorted.....
Anyway, today it is behaving itself. And I will check it and if it is a good little caravan, I might try to get it up on Slexchange.

I hunted down the song today. Um. I will survive another 30 years without it.
But for the record, here are the words:

Mike Batt
Caravan Song

The early light is breaking
The morning sun is waiting in the sky
And I think I'm gonna break away
And follow where the birds of freedom fly
I need to give
I need to live
For the world is slowly turning
And the light of love are burning
In my eyes

Oh, my soul is on the run
I am flying
Moving out into the sun
Oh, I don't know where I'm going
But I'm going
