Two Thirds of the Herd Just Waiting for the Snow to Melt

A picture of a small part of my back yard. Launch Pad is in there, but hard to see. Humpty Dumpty spent the winter on the street in front of my house. Life Support is still stuck in Ontario.

David,
I'm just curious as to why you have so many?
(I apologize if this has been covered in another thread).

Phil, I actually discuss it often.

The most honest answer is, I am a hoarder. But it keeps me busy.

The more complex answer, and as such a rationalization, is I have given one to each of my three older children.

The first Trillium I got for $2000, and it was in great shape:
Trillium 4500 for a family of 7
It was such a good deal that I was giddy happy for like three months. I was kinda embarrassed to be so happy about stuff. Before Trillium, stuff was not my thing. It was all about the experience. I would do things that were possibly not so safe in the name of experience. I hitch hiked quite a bit. I drove, and crashed, (several times) a series of motorcycles, I got married and had kids. But now I find I am addicted to Trilliums. I still limit myself to really good deals, but I am hooked.

But my first Trillium is stuck in Ontario:
Worst Vacation Ever

My eldest son is now 19. He has very little ambition, and will play video games till all hours of the night, if we don't catch him. Since graduating from HS, with fairly good marks, he has floated from one temporary job to another. He gets board and lazy, and then gets fired. We charge him a symbolic rent, (1/2 of the going room and board rate). He and my wife do not get along. He must move out. I realized this a couple of years ago... Hmmm... To the day almost:
Just bought my second Trillium 4500

After I bought Launch Pad, (see my registry), my two twin daughters, now 17, said to me, "Nice trailer. So, what do we get?". A perfect rationalization for more.
My daughters new trailer
Another 4500

The other two are experimental trailers. I bought both of them for cheep, so I could try my hand at fibreglass work:
CANADA - 1979 - Trillium - 1300 - $1500
Trillium For Sale in Alberta on Kijiji
I used the "Cantaloupe" as an experiment:
My First Belly Band Thread
Which lead to:
My Second Belly Band Thread

Humpty Dumpty, (the straggler) just dropped into my lap, practically for free:
I was sure I was done buying Trilliums for Now

I still have two more kids that will require trailers, but the experimental units wont be them. My wife says I have to fix and sell those two before I buy more though.

David. Thanks I was wondering.
I'm available for adoption if you have any spare trailers . Just kidding. I'm very lucky as it is.

You aren't the first to suggest it. But I think five is plenty.

BTW, I made some additions to my original answer above. More links too.

It is still snowing.
