Been a while

Havenít been on in a while . Was corresponding with some folks by email on here and got hacked . The people who fixed my iPad narrowed it down but wouldnít say for sure . So end of that . No I donít want to sell any of my left over parts .
Iíve been slowly working on the stream . Building the window surrounds right now . All the stained hard wood is done . Got my dinette cushions done from a place out of Ga. They are gray . Wifeís happy with them . All that matters. Working on undercarriage right now and will be done by end of month .

Been doing a lot ,A Lot , of Al. work . Got a bunch of new dies including a 5Ē louver die . Built myself a hood for my hot rod .

Stay safe ., BlueClick image for larger version

Welcome back. As always your work is outstanding. I especially love the wall behind the stove. I just might have to get some more dies and give that a try.

Are you setting up your hot rod to pull the Overlander? That would be sweet and a great hit at a TCT rally. - Mark

Wow, even cooler. That is a serious rear suspension, I don't think that came like that from the factory. And the frame is gorgeous. Did you build the it just for this purpose? Were do you find the time? - Mark

Hello again and great to hear from you. Rats, getting hacked is no fun. Same with identity thief. Too many scumbags out there.

The light at the end of the tunnel is getting much brighter with your Overlander. I too marvel at the metal-smithing on the walls of your trailer, and other places too.

Your "hot rod" projects are fun to see too. I'll bet there were Overlanders pulled with 59 Chevy wagons back in the day. I bet they had maybe 200 hp. I bet they struggled up hills and down. Things are better now, but your rebuild wagon will do the job very nicely.

Work

Still working on the stream . Not much to show . Ran all new propane lines , pressure checked , and all appliances tested . All Creasy water lines tested . Cushions in . Need to do one Aluminum panel and inside will be done . Since we canít go anywhere, I am taking a break .

My wife is a ER nurse and has been very busy . Even in the secluded area we live in the Covid is bad . She has been working a lot of 7 day ,12 hours shifts with only two days off . Then right back . She sees a lot of positive cases and deaths. Canít get the ones that need vents transferred to big hospitals. But this will pass .
Today itís cold and the wind is blowing like a banshee.
Everybody stay safe and I will check back in the future .

Thanks for the update, miss seeing all that shrinking and stretching and rolling and planishing.

A few weeks back, laying under my 1968 K10 Suburban project, I got to wondering how your wife's '59 Brookwood tow car was coming?? It's so cool and much more sophisticated than my tow vehicle build.

I'm pretty familiar with Nurse schedules. Last year, Ami retired from University of Michigan Emergency Observation. Eights turn into twelves and sixteens too often. It's hard to imagine the stress that Covid adds to these warriors. RNs are tough.

Hang in there...

I love old two door wagons. I built one in the late nineties that I wish I still had.

Stay safe! I'm a retired RN: my career was long term care (nursing home) and short term rehab. So glad I retired 2 years ago, but still having a few guilt feelings about it knowing what my former coworkers are now going through. Still, my husband and I (especially him this year) have too many risk factors for me to seriously contemplate going back to work. It's been a bad year for us even without Covid!
Joyflea, it's the year to do stuff at home. This too shall pass. One more year and hubby will be retired, and we can winter travel to visit Texas!
