Trailer Trad Living: How Could a Business Called 'Proper Pie Co.' Not be Trad?

The Proper Pie Company in the Church Hill neighborhood of Richmond has a little kiwi in its appealing pie logo. As if that's not cool enough, they tout their wares as representing the New Zealand style of pie making. The small pies are half savory quiche, half pie. Flaky crust pies that you can smell baking from across the street. Draws you in.
These kids are cool, yet not too hipster cool....yet.

Trad aesthetic and philosophy + wonderful, savory light meals + reasonably priced  equals Trailer Trad culinary gold.

Trailer Trad Living: Dudes Should Have a Hobby....Like Model Railroading

I happened upon the Richmond Railroad Museum on one of my enjoyable walks around Richmond lately. You know me. I'm a sucker for cool old junk and nostalgia and this pleasant stop had both. One great feature is a very large room filled with model train displays. Believe it or not kids, before CGI and other fakery, people carefully crafted three dimensional representations of reality (or fantasy) with THEIR HANDS. 

A beautiful example of this model railroading. The perfect paleo-dude hobby, it requires creativity and imagination while cleverly concealing them within the task of building buildings and making trains run. Pretty fun. Check it out.
