Crazy? CRAZY? Nah, it all makes sense to me, so maybe I'm crazy too!

Good work Jim!

Hey, Ed!

Now that you've completed your term's over on the VAC board just think of all the extra time you'll have....

Nice trailer!

Most excellent Flying Cloud! Amazing condition.
Do you have any pictures of your 59? I'm really interested in your shower arrangement.
Thanks!

Nice trailer!
All I can say is I'm glad that its really cold and I don't have room in the drive to keep it there and do you knowhow hard it is to find storage that you can get to the trailer 24/7(god I hate the buzz term!) AND I'm starting a 4 week work road trip.

But I have plans!!!!!!!!!
I thought I would just add a bath and run with it BUT now I see gut job and full restore, Elaine can't wait! Well what do I have to do for the next 4 years...............................

OK here is some of mine, post some of yours! The shower is a tub out of a 63 Trade Wind, yes you can take a bath in this, I made the wall out of some stuff from Fleet Farm (a real man's store) and the shower curtain rod is copper tube.

BTW nice Traveler!

Thank you, Ed for the 59 pictures.
I apologize for contaminating this FC thread. I will be happy to post my 59 pictures but in another thread so it won’t be confusing.
Also my 59 Traveler pictures can be seen at 1959_18Footer_18D0140

Still trying to figure out if it's a Globester or Traveler!
