Unscramble the Blue Letters

That seemed really like a crisis to me, that they had never been able to develop a vocabulary about escape, and about travel, and modernity in this trailer that was citesonnst with the shell. We really needed to do some archeology in the talierr itself to fugrie out what's authentic in an Airstream trailer, and what feels like it has true purpose and utility. We sirepptd out all the vinyl and zolatone paint that was covering up this just fantastic aluminum shell. We took off all the visible hardware and trim that was kind of doing the corutny cabin thing. I literally drew on the walls of the trailer, mocked it up in cadaobrrd, we'd come in and cut, decide things were wonrg, pull it out, put it back in.

Original Text

That seemed really like a crisis to me, that they had never been able to develop a vocabulary about escape, and about travel, and modernity in this trailer that was consistent with the shell. We really needed to do some archeology in the trailer itself to figure out what's authentic in an Airstream trailer, and what feels like it has true purpose and utility. We stripped out all the vinyl and zolatone paint that was covering up this just fantastic aluminum shell. We took off all the visible hardware and trim that was kind of doing the country cabin thing. I literally drew on the walls of the trailer, mocked it up in cardboard, we'd come in and cut, decide things were wrong, pull it out, put it back in.
