A few neat pictures

This is one of my favorite roads in the county, just above my house - called Tinker Ridge. Can you tell why I like it. Yes Marcus, that white stuff is what they call SNOW!

This is a picture of a 52 Cruiser that is far from perfect, but oh do I want it. 25 feet and a single axle. It's about 35 miles from my house in the opposite direction than the Liner....One day, I hope she is mine (all the original interior is inside)

Hey Frank, look at that hatch... too bad that window is out... ya know what that means!

The tongue on that thing is like 6 inches underground... what a shame! I still want it. I put the door inside the last time I looked at it.

US Mail

Well, today I received a nice little gift that I wanted to share with you all in the mail. It was a CD of pictures and movies from this years Installation. Here is a picture of Debra and her bubble that we polsihed as well as a movie of us polishing it Also attached is a great picture of Dick's Holiday - two fiddy fives that you don't see everyday. I tried to load a video but it was just too large I guess. Thanks to Bob and Jim of the Ontario Canada unit!

Let it snow

Well, we got a few more inches of snow last night. So, I pulled out my 52 Farmall Super A that I have in the barn and finally figured out how to hook up my plow that I purchased a few years ago. Then, I plowed the driveway - you can see it out behind the Buick. Brrrr it was cold today... high of like 20 with a wind that made it feel like 6. I then split some more firewood. It is not even December and already we've burned alot of firewood. I also snapped a few of the Airstreams slumbering out in the snow. Enjoy the pictures! It's nice to be home!

My break from splitting firewood today

Today, I finally got a little time and made arrangements to go and visit a trailer I've known about for a little over a year but hadn't made it over to see.... why I waited - not sure.. Well, I know - because if I saw it, I knew I'd want it! And that I do.... so, after splitting some wood this morning, I talk Zoe' and the boys into a nice Sunday drive - to where (you'll never find out the details until I have it)... it's about 40 minutes from where we live. This is a 1948 Liner, serial number 1222. So, if you know me, you know how excited I was to go see it! If I was to get this, it'd be loved and brought back to it's former glory for sure. The current owner is 91 and he got it when the trailer was 5 years old... it's a beauty and I'd love to own it!
Once we got home, I got to splitting wood again with the help of my boys... one on the trailer, one running the splitter, and then we stacked until it got dark!
It was a good Sunday. Enjoy!

Heat, Heat and more Heat

The winter and white stuff will be here for good very soon. Last week a cut a few cord of firewood while I was home. Well, today I split about three face cord and stacked it under the barn roof - you can see my stash under my lean two like roof on the side of the barn. I only have one or two more 16 foot flatbed loads to bring home and split up...

Does anyone out there B-B-Q?

A great pair!

Well, since I've been home, I've been tinkering with Flo... our 59 Buick mated to a 1975 Suburban trailering special with a 454 power plant. Well, tonight I backed Flo up to the front of Sophia - don't they look nice together? Enjoy everyone.
