Building A Gypsy Wagon

Build this Gypsy Wagon and hit the road!
Last night I had a very vivid dream about a Gypsy camp. That was a very colorful journey to the times when gypsies roamed the woods. I travelled with them from one village to another, I remember every single detail of their hand-painted cars and multi-colored clothes. I was a fortune teller in this tabor. My dream seemed to be so authentic! It was difficult to come back to the reality when I woke up.

The Gypsy theme accompanied me throughout the day. Lead by this mood I stumbled upon an impressive project. One of the contributors of Instructables built A Gypsy Wagon. The man has read every book he could find on wagons and he managed to construct a highway speeds towable version of a wagon. I do admire people with so much passion, enthusiasm and self-sacrifice.
