A couple pictures

Here are a few pictures taken with my TREO 600 (I know quality is terrible) - forgot the Kodak 740 digital. These are of Doug's 56 Caravanner with the floor out, a shot of his tongue cut off and the new rear frame section installed. Wow! And a shot of the Silverado above Albany at a Cracker Barrel stopping for breakfast with Steve's 56 Caravanner in tow!

Up and Back

Well, we made the trip up and back without incident. Dick and I departed this am around 5:15am, and it was a beautiful day out. We arrived at GSM Vehicles around 10:30am, and as we turned in, it was quite the scene seeing all the trailers parked in Colin's lot. Wow!! We were in a whirlwind until we departed around 1:30pm, where we went and got lunch and headed for home... arriving around 6pm. When we got there, we met Steve of www.vintagetrailersupply.com and we slowly unloaded the truck, un-hitched the trailer, and then started pocking around, Colin getting the keys out and going in and out of all the trailers there. Doug's 56 Caravanner was undergoing some major surgery to its skeleton while we were there, with the total front end cut off.... I think you'll be glad you are doing that Doug! I've added a link to Doug's blog on the left - check it out. A great day long, 520 mile trip up and back... whew - I'm tired. SYDTR!

Well, I am finally home for more than a day. I got home at 1pm this afternoon. Now, I am home for a good week, before I have to go back on the road. A few weeks ago, over Columbus Day weekend, I picked up this 56 Caravanner for Steve of Vintage Trailer Supply. He has another one just like it, and this is well, his parts trailer. This is a shot of it with my TREO at night in the Flying J during a quick stop to re-fuel. Well, on Monday, myself and one of my trusty side-kicks, Dick Perkins, will drive it the rest of the way to Colin's at www.GSMVehicles.com - will we see Dicky Riegel this time on the Northway this time? I've got to also post this cool shot of a vintage Western Flyer bus - I'd love one of these, and man that would look sweet polished up! This is the second time I've run into this bus here at this Flying J. So, I'll post more pictures when I find the darn Kodak USB to camera cable... I want you all to see the 4 trailers and Buick lined up in the back lot. SYDTR!

Out here?

First, I apologize for not posting in some time! Since I have last posted, I spent two weeks in San Diego, CA, 2 weeks in Quantico, VA doing Reserves and now I am back out here in San Diego and fly home on Friday night (getting home around noon on Saturday) and then flying back out here to San Diego on Monday morning....at the end of that week, I get a few days home finally. The Buick-59 (www.buick-59.com) is in the yard and let me tell you, it is going to be a sweet ride. Last weekend I pulled a 1956 Caravanner belonging to Steve of Vintage Trailer Supply from Philly to my house where in two weeks I will tow it to GSM Vehicles up in Plattsburgh and touch the SOTR!!! I am looking forward to it. Busy, busy, busy.

Take care and I'll post some pictures in a few days - promise!
