Good Morning, Another beautiful day here in the great northeast, low 80's no rain, I guess it's going to rain tomorrow. Today I have my second infusion then I'm done for six months, it's a pain in the neck because it always seems to be a nice day and I'm stuck in a chair for six hrs. or so. Gotta go catch all later.

Terry, hope you get to feeling better soon after your infusion.
Here is an example of a local guy who liked modifying coaches and couldn't find anyone who did the kind of work he wanted so he decided to do it himself. He bought a small company and now is doing what he likes.

Texas Custom Coaches

Good Morning, Thanks for the well wishes, that's over for six months. Popeye, you're right it wouldn't be fun with a line waiting, been there done that with the car/bike shop . Only way would be my schedule. Bill, That guy is WAY higher then my pay scale, nice work. Rainy today, nice tomorrow, then several days of possible showers, so we will see what we can do.

I think Terry has indicated he and Eleanor will be doing some camping with the units. Hopefully the 2017 get together will start a lot of travelling and visiting among the group.

Terry - glad the infusion went well. Hope the weather holds off so you can get some of your tasks done.

MK, Hmmmm next project, finish these first , still have work to be done on the 5th wheel, then there's lots on the Tot'r, would like to do a little camping like Gordon said, this year might be a little slow for projects, not sure yet, have a bunch of stuff to do around the S&B, after all is done I would really like to build a class 8 motorhome, around 40-45 ft. and tow a stacker, not sure If I'll live long enough (or move well enough) do all the things I want, I think I should have started sooner . Gordon, yup another infusion in the books don't know how much more of them I can take. Will be nice for the '17' Get together to see all that can make it. Would be great to winter down there in Yuma too will be a few years I'm afraid.

The interesting thing about TCC is they work on many different coaches. Last time I was there they had a older coach about a 1988 that they were doing some work on. The people I know who have used them say they were cheaper than any other place for what they had done.

Bill, would sure like to visit that shop it looked real sharp what they do, first class . boko, yup I would take one of those before a class A, designed to haul 80,000 lbs. all day long super comfortable to drive and in the RV configuration can tow anything you want, plus easy to work on and any truck shop can/will.

Hi Terry - good video. Really catchy title!!! Thought Hmmm - wonder what color? Did he paint his legs too? LOL

Nice job. Heard you mention you were going to install a larger door on the Tot'r. Have you thought about putting it to one side of the box instead of in the center. Would that give you more space or possibly more function of the space? I do not think it will be better but it is a thought.

Hi Gordon, that's a thought I'd pursued, still might, the only thing is I would lose the space close to the wall where everything seems to be placed, need to start putting stuff in place and see where things will be.
