Rob, did you get yourself a new Suburban? Looks nice!

Congrats on the recovery, although I cringe at the eventual fate of this poor Argosy - a red chicken coop! (At least the furniture is going to help another 70s trailer proudly roam the highways once again.)

Oh, and seeing that recovery mission makes me really happy my old Argosy came from of a dealer's lot 3 years ago...

Hey Rob nice job getting that Argo out of the forest. It looked like quite a difficult mission to free it from it's woody prison.
I agree with Tom what a shame to turn this into a chicken coop, almost as bad as making into a mobile food vending unit.
Although you did call it a mobile chicken coop. Does that mean you'll be bringing the chickens with you to rallies? You could provide fresh eggs every morning for breakfast.

Looks like fun, Rob. And I think chicken coop is the PERFECT occupation for an old Argronski.
