About the removal of the roll up door and started building my back wall.
Plan is to build a 2 X 4 wall, sheet it with 7/16 OSB screwed down, inside and out. Then Install a 22 X 36 emergency exit window in the center of it.

Now I'm still wondering what to cover the back side with and how to seal it.

I'd had even thought about a higher quality version of T-111 siding??

I had though about standard oil base gloss white paint.


In the last hour I've been cutting out the old lower latch(welded in at factory).

I had 2 very artsy ideas pop into my head.

1 just put a very good coat of White paint on the back wall and then paint some
Roll up door seams across horizontally, bolt the hinges and other hardware back on including the handle and Latch . I could do this one on the cheap.

From a distance it would look like I Just installed the window in the roll up door.

2 Do the same with the smooth wall except,,,,,Take a pic of a Empty box truck and have a wrap (a big Decal) made from that pic. Now this would look really weird like the window was hanging in mid air
This one might cost a bit.

Sounds to me like you're having a good time with this. Daydream plans don't cost a thing, ya know! I like version #2 myself, but you might cause an accident or two!

I'm thinking we're gonna need a picture or two here. 👍 Haven't seen a pic of your conversion since your trip to --- was AZ or CO... old man memory and it's late. Hopefully I can remember how to hot send...

It all depends on the flavor of bacon grease you fry it in.

Good Morning Di. Have you let Mom out of her cage yet? Hope she is recovering well.

Can ya tell I didn't try them until I was in my 30's?

Ouch! Y'all really know how to strike a killer blow to a guy's culinary and social status. Now I'm feeling guilty, and may have to duct tape over my license plate when I cruise into "the castle" for a load of sliders.

Hey, and if there are any leftovers, you can wax your car with the cold ones. HA !! So there! Try that with sushi and them greenie leafy things.

You should know all about "sliding" stuff, I'm surprised at you lack of knowledge regarding this subject. I thought you were the expert. Of course X is an unknown quantity and a spurt is a drop of water under pressure. You are an "xspurt," right?

Yeah, and it's so strange that Diane doesn't know what to do with an opossum.

Today we will not be leaving the Huntnski compound! Over the last several days we have had costly trips everytime we left the house. Yes some were planned some not. Finally got The Discovery back in its launch prep chamber (RV barn). Today we will load for another trip and plan for departure shortly after the preacher says the final amen tomorrow!

Mary walking around a little sore, had a Jeep Cherokee run into the back of her yesterday and did a number on back bumper and tailgate to the Tahoe. After looking at the Jeep which had the front smashed flat it appears the Tahoe might pertec us better than a Jeep.

Chuck, been looking at options on my trip heading East. Floot on Chatooga looking good and some time in the mountains to escape the heat.

Have a good day muteys!

Steve and Annie, sweet that you would share a disease, but nuff already. Be well, aye?

Dwayne, nice ride. Got thunder? Shara, my lumbar has empathy for your lumbar. Best wishes, sweet girl!!!

We have found cultural cuisine stuff lately. It started with Nissa (winginnis) in AZ.

Yes, we went to the olive oil, balsamic, seasalt store again here.

Tonight: Pork roast, marinated with tangerine balsamic vinegar, chipotle olive oil, and garlic.
Also a salad of tomato and motzarella slices topped with fresh basil, garnished with lavender balsamic.
And a diet Coke.
You?

Does that mean, if don't take pictures of my food , that I don't gain weight because it didn't happen?

I'm leaving my camera at home from now on!

Tim and Mary, so sorry to hear of the mishap. Some healing Ohhmmms Mary's way and some prayers also.

I'd be interested to know the statistics on safety testing of Jeeps and what their crash survival potential is.

We are headed East (NE) also, so how far East do you plan on going?
