The Wooly Bugger Adventures

Postby fishfinder » Fri Mar 19, 2010 9:36 pm

After slaving all winter in the shop building my TD it was time to take her out on a shakedown trip. In a couple weeks I am headed to Eastern WA for a fishing trip but I wanted to make sure I didn't have any bugs first. I elected to go to a local State Park for the initial trip.

So here I am set up and ready to check out everything.

Here is another view of the galley. Notice my side table. I am able to use it on either side so it is versitle.
Image

Here is a view of the inside through the privacy room. Notice the snaps to close the room.

All hooked up and ready to head home.

I did a little dutch oven cooking but forgot to take a picture. I had almost everything needed. My list for extras is very small. I'm ready to head out in a couple weeks. More photos to follow on the upcomming trip.

You guys are all out camping and I am still in the shop here in wyoming waiting on it to quit snowing and warm up enough to get 2 feet of ice of my lakes and at least have some green grass. then it will take till june to get the snow out of the moutains so I can finally go camping. here you guys are all ready warm enough to go camping in March while it is still winter.

we have had a pretty mild winter. Last night it got down to about 35 but I had an electric heater so I was toasty. My bighist problem was getting dressed this morning laying down. It was too cold to get out into my privacy room. I am going to have to learn a new skill.

I'd love to come to WY and sample some of your fly fishing.

Great shake down trip. :thumbsup: Be sure to check the conditions of where you are headed. We don't have to go too far into the hills to be sitting on a pile of snow dispite the mild winter.

nice job on the TD...mind if I ask if you made or bought the Privacy room?
If made what type of material did you use?
If bought where did you find it?

thanks,

I bought some duck cloth, borrowed my wifes sewing machine and did it myself. I used snaps and gromets to hold it in place. Isn't pretty but it is functional. I still have to figure out how to make a rain proof cover. It rains a bit here in Western WA. :lol:

That's a nice looking trailer! Are you going to come to Spring Fling in Chehalis? You would fit right in!
