CaseyKraft 2 -- updated 11-5-2011

Postby caseydog » Tue Apr 28, 2009 5:16 pm

In the beginning, Spinnernut created a frame. And the frame was without paint, and no Teardrop was above it. And Caseydog looked upon the frame, and saw that it was good. And Caseydog saith, let there be cinderblocks, and the frame was lifted from the dust.

Here endeth the story, thus far.

BTW, that is a "born again" trailer. It was once a 1970 Dilly boat trailer. It is now a 4X8 lightweight frame for the CK2.

But in this trailer there is no life, until the creator came and breathed life and fire into the welds and behold the first day 8)

Wellll, I'm more into camping than building, so I don't know that I'd say I am excited. I am ready to be back in a teardrop, though, because tent camping at my age is a PITA.

So, the clock is ticking. Six days to go. Well, five if you are planning to rest (or go camping!).

Tick-tock, tick-tock . . .
Still graced with two eyes and ten fingers (due in no small part to luck!).

Just when you think a problem is solved, an uglier result replaces it.

Casey, sure don't think you are an old fart

Maybe you should wipe your face.

Great start CD, what type of profile are you planning? And I agree, tent camping is a young person's game!
