Since we are back in the US in order to continue our journey around the world we’re staying at the so-called “OZ Camp” in Ridgecrest, preparing Herbie and ourselves for our ongoing trip. As last year we helped decorating the whole block in the manner of “OZ” – coming from the most famous American fairytale “The Wonderful Wizard of OZ” written by L. Frank Baum and first published in 1900.
The story about the little farm girl Dorothy from Kansas got probably even more popular when MGM produced their first movie in colors – “The Wizard of Oz” – in 1939.
Also Herbie got part of the show – highlighted in his iconic blue and red colors.
It became a big tradition out here in the desert. Every year “The Land of OZ” is born again. And Herbie and his camper are enjoying themselves highlighted in the front yard.
