How Our Big Adventure Began
The name Gateway Teardrops comes from the tiny town of Gateway, Arkansas, where our mother grew up. We remember spending vacations there; playing in the gravel pile in front of Pawpaw’s old shop building. Pawpaw was a chair maker who had moved from Oklahoma to Arkansas sometime before 1900 in a covered wagon. We always thought that was a cool story, and now we are pretty sure their journey would have been more comfortable in one of our campers.
