An Old Wagon for Rolf

On a recent trip I came across this old wagon sitting in front of an antique store. It reminded me of my talented cooking friend Rolf in Germany who has built his own chuck wagon.
Rolf and friends are very interested in the "Old West" so I pulled into the shop and snapped a few pics of the wagon.

Looking at the wagon brought thoughts of who and how many people rode in this. I had visions of the wagon loaded down with children, heading to church, or to town for goods.
It was pretty interesting. :)

After checking out the wagon I couldn't resist peeking inside the store to see what other interesting goodies they had.

I ended up buying three cast iron pots that I don't really need....but they were inexpensive and I will put them to good use. :)

Rolf if you ever come to the U.S. you need to check out some of the antique stores. I think you would like them!  :)

Nice old wagon, I still see them setting around Virginia, people don't have much use for them and I don't think they bring a whole lot. Those are nice pots, I have two so that I can cook soup and chili in one and use the other to roast meat in the oven. I use cast iron every day it is wonderful.

sweet pots, did they come with lids ?

That's a nice haul of cast iron, and it looks like it's in fairly good shape.

Thank you very much for this post.
I am so excited and I would be so happy to have been there.

You know, what kind of enthusiasts we are ;)

Thanks again

Hi Sunnybrook!
Isn't cast iron great! I use mine about every day too.
Sounds like you put your pots to good use! Something special about a CI pot of chili or soup... I think it tastes better. :)
The old wagon was interesting. Some day I'd like to travel east and visit the antique stores there. :)
Hope you're having a great Labor Day, thanks for stopping by!

Thanks Rocco!
No lids but I have a few that will work if I need one.
Thanks for stopping by, good to see ya. :)

Hey Brewella, good to see ya!
The pots were fairly cheap, one was $7 one was $8 and the last one was $11. They are going to last forever.
Hope you're having a great Labor Day!

You're very welcome Rolf! When I saw the wagon I thought of you and your amazing chuckwagon. :)
Your Camp looks very authentic.. just like the old west! I think you must have been a cowboy in a previous life. :)
Hope you are having a great weekend!
