That was her first encounter with Sisters on the Fly, a loose national sisterhood bound together by the simplest things: vintage trailers hand-decorated to reflect each womans personality, fly fishing, camp cooking, seeing the U.S. and being best friends with each other, regardless of their differences. I just thought they were the neatest people, and it wasnt long before I decided to become SOTF number 1,322, Rawlings says. Each sister is numbered when she joins; the group, conceived by sisters Maurrie Sussman and Becky Clarke, now numbers close to 1,500 nationwide.
Rawlings not only joined, she wrote a book and to celebrate, shell sign copies of Sisters on the Fly: Caravans, Campfires and Tales from the Road at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Tattered Cover Book Store, 2526 East Colfax Avenue. Sussman will be there, too, along with a small group of SOTF trailers parked in front that will be open for public perusal. For details, go to www.tatteredcover.com or call 303-322-7727.
