I just love a guy who knows his nuts and bolts and how to torque. You guys rock. No worries not wearing a helmet when welding. I used to do oxygen acetylene torch welding and when the flux made it explode and the shrapnel came down on my head it just seared my scalp and never set my hair on fire. Goggles however are a must at least he looked away. Keep up the good work and keep posting the photos, hugs, Wendy

Mike what are you...a renaissance man now? Looks awesome! Can't wait to see the trailer in person because it looks just amazing so far in pics!

Chris and Wendy, you are too funny Chris, thanks for the tip on those U-bolts. Chuck, I hope you talk your wife into camping out at MOasis2 so you can see it in person!

Sandra if by "renaissance man" you mean "jack of all trades and master of none" then, yes I'm a renaissance man

I had to work half a day today so nothing too exciting. I made a couple of blocks to go under the leveling jacks. They nest together to conserve space which is important in a 28 square foot trailer!



Notice the purty new tires? I'm not so good at math so I don't understand why two $50 tires cost $160

I've never had a trailer Mike but I'm guessing that the jacks and blocks are to make the trailer stable when it's parked and in use? They aren't for changing the tires, right? That's great they fit like a puzzle. Cheers, Wendy

Yes Wendy, the blocks level and stabilize the trailer when parked. Got the rest of my curtain cloth in today from Spoonflower and my magnetic sign in too. It was a good mail day - all goodies and no bills!

It will look better when the trailer is painted Stone White (cream color). Speaking of paint, I stopped by the paint store today - epoxy primer, acrylic urethane paint, hardeners and reducers will come out to about $400 - why does everything have to cost so much?! Hopefully I will get it painted this month.

Yes, it is scary to price quality paint supplies anymore. Keep up the
progress shots of your good work. We all get to look over your shoulder this way.

Beachbumz speaks truth.
Throw your money away someplace else.
Jazz it up like a 2 tone shoe.
Tan & creamy white.

Found some much better prices for automotive paint online, closer to $200. Fenders are in and ready to be bolted on.

How about a Tahitian Cannibal pillow case? (iron on)

96 days Amy, can't wait!!!

Took my Tahitian Cannibal out to Superstition Mountain on it's maiden voyage last night. Very comfy to sleep in - nice mattress, plenty of space for me, and toasty warm with no heater (outside temp in the mid 40s)


Here's my 2 year old grandson "Goobie" enjoying the desert


Came back with lot's of ideas of things to apply the Tahitian Cannibal motif to - folding chairs, steel firepit, wooden doormat, minibike? - who knows what else
