How to build and convert a Dutch barge

Every night the pile of 'barges to see' got smaller and smaller but tonight was worse. The pile was gone. I gazed out from my overnight parking, umpteenth beer in hand watching beautiful Dutch sailing clippers glide right past my door, I wondered if it had all been a big mistake and that barging wasn't really going to play a part in my future after all. A magnificent full moon rose as I retired to the inside of the van, vowing to give up the whole idea in the morning. A torn out news clipping had fallen from the waste paper bin onto the floor. I picked it up, put it on the table and thoroughly depressed, slipped off to sleep.

Every night the pile of 'barges to see' got smaller and smaller, but tonight was far worse, the pile had gone! I gazed out from my overnight parking, umpteenth beer in hand watching beautiful Dutch sailing clippers (barges) glide right past my doorway. I wondered if it had all been a big mistake and that barging wasn't really going to play a part in my future after all. A magnificent full moon rose as I retired inside the van and vowing to give up the whole 'crazy' idea first thing in the morning, I noticed a scrunched up torn out news clipping, that had somehow fallen from my waste paper bin onto the camper van's floor. I picked it up and for no apparent reason, rather than put it back in the bin, put it on my table instead. Thoroughly depressed, I headed off to bed.
