Let the Games Begin!

When I first viewed the trailer, it was 8pm at night, almost pitch black, and I had to use a flashlight to inspect everything. I asked the owner if the tires were in good condition and could make the trip back an hour to my house. She replied they were new. I didn't bother looking as the mosquitos were feasting on me and took her word for it.

The next day, when the cash changed hands, I could see that they were dry rotted. Still I thought I might be able to get it home by driving slow on the backroads.

I hooked up and started backing up.


Well, at least it happened on their property and not on the road. $500 later, I'd made a deal with a trailer shop for new tires and rims, already mounted and balanced.

Here's how she looked when I picked her up.


She'd been sitting under a tree getting all kinds of funky stuff rained down upon her.

It was really caked on there, too, it wasn't coming off with a simple wiping, so out came the pressure washer.


Don't you just feel better after a nice bath?



Already I could tell this was the start of a beeeautiful relationship!
