Thumbs up Big news, 1973 amerigo weighed

I am so eager to post pictures...

Yesterday Paul rolled it to work and let it be seen even though it's still undone...it went well, he got more supplies including a metal futon frame that someone had tossed in the scrap metal bin.

Turns out the two halves fit our two bed areas perfectly. So we were able to skip a lot of work and plan for installing them instead of more plywood. It'll be great ventilation for the mattresses, too. We both have 7" all foam now from IKEA, as we bought a double today for Paul's "bedroom." We'll create a u-shaped area with a full-time 30 or 32" bed at the very rear and two permanent seats...with bin openings below. The rest of the back bins will be totally accessible when we're done.

He got a metal rod for curtaining between the two bedrooms (I read late into the night, he doesn't), and cardboard sheeting to make patterns for the rest of the wall paneling. We can almost taste completion here! I'm so eager to load up the groceries and set out! First stop, Oakridge, Oregon, to see my Auntie.

The Nehalem NOG October 6 will be on Shellimar, The Peanut's birthday (1 year since we towed her home). As soon as we get the beds in, I'll make a reservation for that meet, if not the one at the end of July in Bandon, Oregon.

Maybe one of these days we'll get those photos done and put into the computer. My camera used to do that with a little cable, and then it just stopped.

Good to hear from you!
Hope it's going well! Looks so good! We see things we might've considered at the time, there's always more to do right...but sometimes we just forged on regardless.

oh, and he HAD IT WEIGHED BY A CERTIFIED scale fellow, SID at Machnists, Inc.

With the floor, the closet, the galley, and the front "Putin" (poo-tin), with the back bins 3/4 built, it weighed 1763. Tongue weight was 220.

Since our capacity is 3600/360, we have more leeway than trailer at this point! We are sure we'll come in under maximum!

So...going very well!


Semper ubi sub ubi.
