Thanks Jim,

My trailer is further along than shown in my last blog entry, but not in the "put back together" direction. Last weekend I removed the rear 12ft of floor awaiting installation of the new grey and black tanks... which I have yet to fabricate. I'm still trying to decide what gauge stainless to use.

Steve,

Please do not go with stainless. It is heavy and way overkill. Just go with the plastic or fiberglass tanks that you can get off the shelf with fittings where you want. Most tank places will put fittings where you want for a small fee. It will save weight and headachs and pains....

Tedd,

The extra weight of S.S. I can see... but the "headaches and pains?" ...you'll have to clue me in on those.

Steve,

Never mind, I just read your profile...... The headaches would be for the novice. i.e. keeping the sides from warping while welding the box up... I see that you do this kind of thing for a living.

Novice... that's me! ...but I work for a company whose business is fabricating such things. I'm planning to do the welding myself though. I can save myself about $250 a tank.

I do have the benefit of some expert advice.

Good Good Good

I was wondering what the therapist would say about the MoHo.. your unit is REALLY nice and I knew you could do it.

I really admire you for keeping on keeping on.. we all need to remember to do that!

Count Down is happening :-)

Wel it definitely looks like we'll be small, but friendly :-)

I am ordering food tomorrow, and I really hope weather smiles on us.

I've emailed Wader with a few details.. I hope they can come for more than few hours. I remember well the year that Gary and I attended Moraine View with no trailer.. it wasn't as much fun as actually staying :-)

They'll have better luck with us since this is so small and cozy.

So please send me a last minute headcount of how many people wil be in each group. There will be three of us, and our two pups.

My trailer is back and ready to go but we can not go. Our friend is alone and had some surgery so we think it would be best to keep an eye on him.So we will see you folks at the next nearby event.
Have a great time
Allen
