Another accomplished weekend! I am still waiting on door hardware, aluminum trim and a few other pieces to come in the mail. But now I can see a finished product in the very near future. I say that but I am sure that this will be a project that never really ends. At least she will be road ready, I think.
It’s funny when you think about it. No matter how well I think we built it, or how good of a job people tell me we did. The road will always be the final arbitrator. Thats the thing, you don’t know if it’s road worthy until the few months you spend building it are over and you can take it down the road. Thats part of the adventure though. I can always buy a $30,000 off the lot RV and know that I want have any problems, I’d be king of the road. In this case every bump. pothole or rough patch we hit, I’ll be scared shitless. Instead of being king of the road I’ll be at the road’s mercy, which is cool with me. I mean we are going on a National/State Park/Mother Nature trip. It’s better to have it that way, it’s what will make this an adventure. Adventure is what we seek. Bring on the flat tires, storms, road blocks, traffic and headaches. Because it will all be worth it for those moments of sunsets, sunrises, take your breathe away mountain sceneries, desert ogling, star gazing, long hikes, camp breakfasts, camp fires and all the smiles, meaningful thoughts and truth this road trip will bring to us.
I need a name for the Teardrop. Any ideas?
