Going to be sweet though. Lynne
I'm wondering if Terry would ever relax enough to stop building things!

Terry, you just amaze me all the time with your fabrication skills, things are looking good!

Good Morning, Lynne, Not sure when exactly Eleanor's going to retire, she gets alot of vacation time, (works for the County) so we can use the heck out of the Tot'r/Toyhauler until she does. as far as having something to do? that's never been a problem Carl, Thanks! There will always be another truck to work on .......who knows maybe another Tot'r or 5th wheel after using the ones I have I'll know what I would do different. I been fabricating I guess you could say my whole life starting with working with my father, he always built his own truck bodies. He taught me how to weld and cut metal, by watching. Later I built full body race cars from the ground up, I usually did this stuff while working a full time job. So for me this is slowing down. Rail, Thanks! well no snow or rain today, might get some tonight into Mon. and Tue.

Hi all, I am still following along, just haven't had any ideas to pass along lately.
Wow 2 days and no post. I assume you are totally frozen in up there. The Tot'r is looking good. I figured I better post something before they shut down the thread for no posts in the last few min's. Try to stay warm, hopefully spring will come early this year.

4333 , Is that all ?
Gotta be at LEAST a couple thousand posts left before this one is done!

Yep , it IS kinda froze ovah up heah. oh ayuh! Saturday was a "spinnah"
that's what we call an ice storm cuz all the folks from away that move here with their "invincible" SUVs find out 4 wheel drive will SLIDE real good yup yup ! Gottah learn tah go slow deah !
Skuh kuh kuh kuh kuh

I just moved outta the very "tropical" 50* shop yesterday , temps in the single #s and 35mph windchill. Sure it's not much warmer uptah Terry's place......hmmmmmmm.
Actually , he is south of my place. Add a few degrees, or NOT !

I'm headed to the local lumber yard to fill my propane tank tomorrow morning , hopefully the coating of ice on the road will be gone by then and my new brakes will actually be able to stop me !

Good Morning, Seems I've been AWOL.............been very windy, up to 50 MPH gusts so the wind chill has been sub zero. no snow yet. they are looking at a possible nor'easter for Saturday that could bring some very heavy snow, would be up there to Popeye also . Working inside the shop, making the supports for the compartments under the coach body, hopefully when it warms a little I can get them on. Also built the drawbar for the bumper pull hitch that needs to be installed also. Will be inside the shop again today.

Oh, Noreaster! Terry, you should build a RV and get away from there! That could involve shoveling, plowing, and serious cold.

Popeye, take down the main sail and get your hatches tight!

Lloyd, Build an RV and get out of the cold..........what a novel idea . The weatherman is saying the old depending on the track of the storm..........we could get almost nothing or alot. but then it moves up the coast towards Popeye. Looks like I need to get my truck ready just in case.
