Many muggles have seen my build and are curious. I am hoping to bring over some converts so that they may have the magic.

No need to sell the wife. She has come to the way and the light. She is now a teardropper. Welcome Mary. Help me out people. If Mary feels welcome we wont lose her.

Hi Mary,

Welcome to the club! My wife too had her reservations, but:

1. There is more room in the teardrop than she thought. Claustrophobia is not an issue.

2. The teardrop is darn convenient. Just hook up and go, and then hook up and go home.

3. A side tent addressed the "where do I change clothes" question. (Also provided room for the porta-potty.)

The only thing left for her to deal with is that the teardrop is a people magnet. We don't get as much down time in the campground as we would like, but we have met some really nice people that we wouldn't have otherwise.

Take care,
Tom
Tom (& Linda)

I hope you called ahead. I think they're planning on going to the Medicine Lake gathering starting Thursday through Sunday. If you have something to camp in, tent or otherwise, I'm sure you would be welcome. It's a bunch of Jefferson State Tearjerkers and they're a good group. If that sounds interesting, PM Kayperkay and discuss it with her.

Gravity tank and faucet in! Any ideas on how to cut a drain hole in the bowl. I have a regular drain set up for it but I am open on how to set up a simple drain .

Where did you get that sink? I've been looking for one and don't feel like paying $90.

A nice 'KISS' galley with a pretty wood finish. :thumbsup:

:thinking: Is that a pass-thru in the middle?
