wow... finally bringing this blog back from the dead!

You would not believe how much hassle that is to add a new gmail account to a blog. Not as simple as I thought. But finally figured it out. So now the blog lives on!

I Dropped Comcast as my ISP when we made the move to Bellevue in late November, and couldn't get signed in for a while there. Little fancy switching here and there and poof, it's alive again.

Update: Nothing. The trailer has a new 14x30 foot flat slab to sleep on, and that is about it. She's plugged in, winterized and waiting ever so patiently.

Plans for the spring are to rip back into the interior, reconfigure a few things for now... Just planning to get the porta potty in it's own "bathroom", I'll worry about holding tanks, sinks and showers later. For now, it's just a bit of re-arranging to get ready for the trip to Yellowstone in Late July/early August.

A couple new 6-ply LT 195/75/14 will go on very soon so I can actually get it back out of the driveway without scraping. The Passenger rated 195/70/14's are just not cutting it anymore. Too low and sidewalls are bulging under the weight of the trailer now. finishing polishing the windows is still in order, along with some ever so needed tint to keep interior temps down and preserve the curtain fabric. The rear window will be extra dark, especially because I will most likely wall over the section where the bathroom will be. I'll keep the other two windows, but the rear will be tinted, then covered up for a cleaner look inside. I can't wait until I can start working on it again... just need to get some funds saved up and then I'm off and running.


  1. Glad to see your posting - my husband and I follow your blog. For a minute we thought something might of happened with the heater... :) We have a 66 Mainliner too - thanks for the great inspiration!!!

  2. I worry about my tires as well. I bought auto tires rather than the 6 ply and can't get my mind off of it every time I'm on the highway. The reason...the 6 ply couldn't fit in the wheel wells with a traditional jack liftin the trailer. It originally came with 13" wheels. When I bought it it had 15", I put 14" so I wouldn't burn up my bearings, but had to go with the smaller auto tires.
    Your 66' is looking terrific! By the way, where did you find the bottle opener?

  3. good to have you back I started a blog 1972 Triple EEE like you waiting for $ to start have bee collecting stuff for awhile.

  4. @andy the bottle opener is an antique... I borrowed it off a 1940's Coke cooler my Grandma Gave me. I'll replace it with something else when I restore the coke cooler... someday.

    @jackie No worries with the heater.. new post today.
