About Sally and the Silver Bullet
There's a crazy story behind how I came to own a vintage Airstream. Short version, it was an impulse buy on the back of a most difficult year struggling with a major health setback. I really could not afford her, and needed to make a business with her from the moment she arrived. Her previous owner sold her after selling his business, for which he had her earmarked for trade as a mobile cafe. So, I decided to honour the original intent for her in Australia. Boy, was I in for a steep learning curve.
The Silver Bullet was orginally named Sophie by the family who owned her in the US. They lovingly travelled with her up and down the coast. She is a 1962 Airstream Globetrotter, and true to her namesake, she has found herself half way around the world to call Old Dunsborough home with me.
I have met some of the most amazing people through the many hours spent at the water's edge at the Old Dunsborough Boatramp. Some of these friendships have changed me and touched my heart for life. What began as a little business venture became so much more, and the connection I feel to those that support me and the Silver Bullet keep me coming back year after year.
Over the years my boys have endured many school holidays and weekends hanging out at 'the van'. Slowly but surely, these Son's of the Silver Bullet, are learning the skills of the coffee trade and have become a part of the Silver Bullet story.
