Daniel I know what a chick magnet is I just didn't see how a polished trailer would be one.
MC yes the suit used to be white. It's no longer a CDN camo suit as Lance called it. In a couple of earlier shots you can see the black snow or fur on the ground from the wheels. This comes from raking them clean. The denim ones are the worst for shedding. I actually lost sight of the extension cord powering the polisher. Just about everything in my shop is covered in it.
Anyway back at it again today. I hope to get a few more hours in today and the off to mom's to install a dishwasher for her.

Yeah I was hoping nobody noticed that. I saw that long after my ability to edit. Sometimes my mind thinks faster that my two fingers can type.
Or she is the shiniest woman dressed in black, take your pick.

1ST trip

I did a little fooling around today and went to mapquest. I mapped our a route for a maiden voyage that would take me to all my forum's freinds.
7600 miles round trip which will cover both coasts of the U.S. Hopefully the trailer will be ready next fall once I start next years holidays. I'm sure I will make several more stops along the way and plan to spend 6 months on the road.
Sorry I tried to link the map but it won't work. I suspect it is a ID 10 T error. Any It guys will know what that error code means.

Put us on the map!

Hoping your travels across the US include a stop in ND. We have all that you could want here plus an Airstream in parts that will make you feel right at home. We might even have a frame put together by summer if we are lucky! If nothing else, you can drive away thinking "Those people have a lot of work to do and I am glad mine is done!"

Adding in Bismark as we speak. At least once your addition is done the trailer will fir in. I had to do some creative building mods to make mine fit.

Thrid times a charm. I hope any way. As y'all can see I have a lot of ID ten T errors. BTW ID ten T is tech speak for operator error(IDIOT).

Not only will we leave the light on..

We will put the dog in her kennel and the Rookery open for a late night shelter. ND is great in the fall..and spring...and summer....but watch out for the winter. Let us know when you are coming through.
