dilema

I was getting ready for the trip last week and my cyclo broke down with things not done. A quick ship to the Cyclo folks with a promise to get it back ASAP so I could finish up before I had to go. Well, that did not work. I just got the Cyclo back and planned to go to the barn and finish polishing. A quick check of the weather changed that plan.....
"Partly cloudy with a chance of a thunderstorm and a chance of rain. High of 106F with a heat index of 129F. Winds from the ENE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain"
....and a forecast of 60% thunderstorms between here and ABQ for the next three days. I have talked myself out of that polishing idea. Maybe finish at ABQ?

You ALL have to look at "My Earthship".....it is fantastic.

We have to talk....I built my timberframe home from recycled materials and items I collected for thirty or more years. I almost went the same way as you...but chickened out.

I bet you want me to practice on your Cloud.... I bet we could have it all done by Monday AM. Tom Sawyer had it right. By the way are you, FC7039, going this year?

My friend, Sally, flew in last night from LA, we hope to hit the road by noon, plan to camp at Balmorhea State Park tonight.

Can't wait for the fun to begin! Even though a few of my "rally preparations" (new battery box, new gaucho slipcovers, etc.) didn't get done... this trailer will clearly always be a work in progress.

The great thing about the Restoration Rally is that rigs show up in all stages of completion. Some are aluminum tents (right, Kip!), others are well on their way to becoming fabulous restorations (could this be Ken?) Anything and everything fits in perfectly here in Albuquerque! What you will walk away with is an abundance of information and a network of people ready to assist in any way possible.

Pack it up, throw in the dog, and safe travels to Enchanted Trails!

"Well on the way" may be an over statement at this point :-) Its more or less "as found", "torn apart"

However, I'm taking it out there this morning and it will for sure lower Enchanted Trails to a new level of below low - LOL!

Anyone who wants to join the fun - we'll try to get them in!

Shari! I've missed it. What two new projects? The 56 Flying Cloud here at the Resto Rally already has a new panel going in.
