The Dorky.

When we went on our first trip the trailer was still unfinished. One the more expensive items was the axles upgrade. The original axle placed the wheels under the trailer. They were little wheels and the trailer looked weird wearing the things. Over all the trailer worked well on it's first trip, but the wife said it had to lose the dorky factor. I feel that I accomplished that, but the Dorky name stuck.

I came up with the name Finn Voyager partially due to the fact I am a Voyager type, from the Land of the Finns and Ive done all kinds of voyages in my life time so ..also Im getting to the age of being a Classic ... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

There are so many Classic things in life that I enjoy..hmmmmm :thinking: :thinking: so might as well carry on..Life has been an adventure... and it hasnt ended yet.. :D :D As Willie Nelson
said "It aint over till its over" WHy is it I remember his words so well.

Finn Voyageur or Finn Voyager...cant make up my mind as the way it should be spelled out yet.. It just fits my life style..

So there ya have the story..
Best regards
Classic Finn ;)

Dang it! That's what we were going to call ours!

So much for originality on our part! ;)

When the Anasazi culture was first discovered in the deserts of Utah, everyone thought the grainery's (about 3 foot tall) were house's for a very small tribe of American Indians (the little people of the desert) and called them; The Moki's. The little trailer would be a mansion for these guys. :lol: :lol:
