Terry,
When you get into the FT, after awhile, you find other things, bike riding(Motorized or pedal), Kayaking, Golf, ETC. Before you know it, a lot of your projects get put on the back burner, because you are having too much fun. I like your idea of a super C with a Stacker behind with a shop in it, I do miss the touches and welder and air tools. i have cordless impacts for when I need them, but they are not the same. Remember that you need to be somewhere's close to 65' and not 75' + like on the Semis. Then by the time you load up the bikes and run around vehicle, not a whole lot of room left in the Stacker. I really do like your idea though.
Frank

Do not forget Nap Time.

If I knew what I know now when I was younger I would not have objected when Mom said "Nap Time"! I guess they call it siesta to be more mature.

Popeye, I probley would sell them but only if I had another lined up first. Frank, It would certainly be a transition, My hobby and profession has been building things, but we do like riding the motorcycles, I just remembered you Honda guys would be surprised I actually looked at a Goldwing trike the other day, and yes it was red. Person wanted way to much money for the condition it was in , but if the price was right...........you never know.

Those two rigs are your babies , gonna be a tough decision.
But then again you did send the Caddy down the road so you know you can't keep them all. Plus that's impossible for a fulltimer , or is it?

Now about that Goldwing that's surprising...Semper Fi Marine ????

Good Morning, Popeye, With everyone that you sell someone gets a good rig and I can build a better one! I know what I would do different to the next one! Plus it gives me something to do. Goldwing's are great machines, I just prefer Harley's, but if a good deal came along............ I may put my side hack back on, but I need to have more room to bring them along. 29* this morning I am so not ready for this .

Terry,
Along with things that you would do differently while building a unit, Eleanor woul want some things different also. The more you stay in these things, you see different things that you would like or need to have. A couple years will go quickly, as you found out last year when finishing the TH and this summer on the Tot'r.

Terry,

I agree with Frank, you will always find something you want or need that you would have done different. The things is with your skills you can change it. I always figured I kept something as long as it was working for me and when I needed something different it was time to move on.

Like you I am not ready for this cold and white stuff. Not long though and we will both be joining the South travelers. Stay as warm as you can.

I make kolachi at Christmas time. They are a lot of work but sure taste good.

Improvise to get you home! Popeye, I once put a old tire above the rearend pumpkin to support a much heavier load of antiques I went up to Michigan to pick up for a friend in my old Chevy Van! Got us back home, unloaded, and took the old tire out! Worked just fine, and was free! Rail!

Just south of me is the town of West,Texas. It is famous for Czech bakery's.
They don't have a rest stop they have a Czech Stop. I can't get down or up I-35 without stopping.
Czech Stop

My second favorite place to stop is Czech Stop. Wife was Czech (Zubik). Favorite place is Weikel's Bakery in LaGrange. For Klobasniki. Yum.

Good Morning, Frank, Lynne, I know time flies, especially when building stuff, and always seem there's something that needs to be changed. Popeye, hey innovation . I have done somethings to get back home (not quite like that). Bill, Ron, now I have to try and find these . Well today is going to be a nice fall day high 60's and sunny so need to get with it.
