Hey Dale, here are a few pics of Trader Sam's that I've used for inspiration....

had a few days off due to a horrible tooth ache, finally saw the dentist today and was able to spend a little time in the garage Jungle Cruise area; of course, the best part is this is my view out my front door and my open garage!







found this old pump at a local antique store for next to nothing on sunday....






made this sign based on a pic in the Indiana Jones ride

How do you keep everything in the perfect combination of clean/unkempt. Your stuff is amazing.

lol Thanks Storm, that's easy, all my lumber, windows and most ammo boxes were kept outside, so they all have a natural patina to them, I give them a light brushing off and presto ! as for the items on the walls, they usually never go out side anymore, well, at least till I out build the garage and move into the side yard. that's whats so great about my new place, lots of room to expand!!!
Funny thing is I still havnt done anything to the new tiki hut, still have too many ideas and don't wanna do it twice lol
thanks again for your kind words!
paul




had a chance to convert an old ammo box into a makeshift field desk, after a little paint, some sanding and instant period field desk!

Ok, I just have to know....why do you have zebras outside your front door? I love it, and for some reason I'm not terribly surprised you have zebras for a view (not sure why I'm not surprised). Near me I have a small farm with sheep and was shocked to see a Llama running around with them one day. HAHA

Thanks Dale,
Yea across from me is a large estate where the father had every type of African animal imaginable at one time; zebras, Emu's, lions, giraffes, and more! but sadly after he passed away, his sons decided it was too costly to continue the upkeep of the animals, and now all we have are the Zebras and bison. in fact, that was one of the selling points for buying the house was the view and the animals! plus it ties in nicely with the house/yard/garage!

I think the view out front is great! Can't wait to see the new, old wood put to good use.
