Is it just me, or is it a general trend. I got the Sue-haul home. Took out the cushions, started "ripping it gently apart" to see what needs to get done first.

Actually, we could go camp in it right now.

But the Swamp Cooler Must die!!!!!!!!!!! I'll put in a nice vent. Maybe one of those fan/vents.

Is it just me?

Huh, I could have sworn Pat B and I were both females.....



(Not to mention numerous other females on the board who like to take stuff apart and put it back together.)

I've got more man tools than most men. Remodeled a home and have built my share of hot rods. Power tools are my favorites I thought my mom would flip when I asked her to buy me a bench vice for Christmas one year.

Swamp Coolers are meant for use in the Desert... to combat the DRY heat. I don't think you have that in Ohio.
My Fiber Stream had a swamp cooler on the roof when I bought it. Totally useless for the traveling I do.

Just to set the record straight, last time I looked I was female, 53 and an engineer. I currently am volunteering for the Red Cross in Disaster Services. That's why I wanted a small trailer.

I like to take apart and rebuild things. But, I am a average carpenter....birdhouses, doors and simple stuff are OK. The electrical system needs to be updated to handle some Ham Radios.

The Uhaul....might change the name to "Pearl"...has just simple things to fix. Plus, I have a ton of leftover parts from a cannibalization of an old pop up my friend turned into a flatbed for his truck camper.

Hey Alf, use your cell phone to take pics and label, everything!

I see no problem here, my youngest daughter played with trucks and was really pissed when they wouldn't let her play football in school, She even said her middle name was Joe when she was about 9 years old.

She has a pretty good knowledge of fixing things but prefers to let her fiance think he is the tool guy.
(which he is not)
I say go for it, Donna will tell you there is nothing you can't do if you want to do it.

She sounds like a great, capable daughter. Good on you for being proud of her and not trying to make her stick to dolls only

It makes me wince a little that people (women) still feel the need to hide their strengths to protect other people's egos, but I guess it's improving as we go along. I'm just impatient about it (but then I don't have a fiance, either... )

Pat: I'd love to hear more about your Disaster Services trailer outfitting and trips, sould you care to share on the board. Thank you for your services with the Red Cross. I hope I don't run across you in that capacity, but I'm glad you are out there!

Have you lost that small part dexterity you had as a youngster?
Well maybe you still are a youngster, I dunno. But I can't do the little work anymore. Small parts hate me. So whatever I take apart usually ends up in the trash... at least if it has #2 machine screws and stuff like that.
