So what is the date of the maiden voyage going to be? ;)

Thanks Paul, you know how it is, labor of love.

I wish I could put a date on a drive off. Right now I can only dream of some weather that doesn't have single digits in it. But it will come soon enough. I don't have any plumbing for tanks yet, have to adjust the whole suspension after i get all the weight on it, and still need to finish the dash and gauges so there's a good bit to do to hit the road as of yet. But I'm real close. I'll hit the outside chores pretty hard when the weather breaks.
Prolly see you guys in Texas on the way to the desert next winter.

Steve, thanks so much for the update.

You have come so far from when Bill and I visited you in 2011. More amazing is the headway you have made in the face of some pretty serious health issues.

I was impressed with your fabrication skills then and am even more impressed today.

Thanks Jim,
BILL came over to the shop last Friday to get me to lay up some plastic laminate shelves for his kitchen in the house. I was telling him then that taking into consideration my health issues that we were about the same age....lol. It's amazing how much he gets done at his age. You know he just converted another provost don't you?

Thanks Steve

Now that is some kind of craftsmanship. I wish I had half the talent you have. You are like the monkey that got his tail caught in the meat grinder. Won't be long now. :lol: Keep posting more pictures and we will get Eric fired up and get to working on his second one. I have spent most of my life slinging concrete and have built some good looking structures that I am proud of, and it has been a good living. If I could do it all over again I would look hard at woodworking and be able to build things like you have done. it has to be very rewarding.
