At the rate I am going it won't be unthawed before May. The other issue is the glacial rate at which The Insurance Company of British Columbia moves. Tracking the registration is becoming a bit of a process...

Skis and sleeping bags OH MY!
What no chips?

Good luck in getting her unstuck. Don't you folks up in Frozenville have portable heaters and tools to unstick things?

Remember Dan, you can never have too many fishing rods! Not sure about all the salsa though.

Carol- we have our eye on that meet. Mission is actually my hometown. We will have to see what the schedule comes out like in July. I don't know if we will have the trailer ready for May.

Cheers,
Dan

Wow! She looks to be in pretty solid shape and complete too. Gee, can you bring a portable campstove and boil pots of water to pour over the frozen spots? What about salt? How did your wife spot it waaaaaaaaaaay back there??

Jen the Egg-hunter:
My wife has been well trained at spotting FG trailers after months and months of searching. She spotted the roof top from 250 yards, but that is jumping ahead a bit... We were out driving and running some errands when she had a 'feeling' about a trailer. I thought that was a good sign and drove straight to where we had found a Monarch Ventura, knocked on the door and was disappointed to find no-one home. I got back in the vehicle and her 'feeling' was still there. "Drive to the other side of town," she said. Off we went and she lead us pretty much straight to the Trillium. A knock at the shop door and we met Ed who said the trailer was in rough shape and probably not what anyone would want (boy was he wrong). We went and had a look, decided it was perfect and then nervously went back to find out how much Ed needed for us to get it out of his yard. His price made the decision very easy and the deal was done. My wife can have this kind of voodoo magic at times and it is moments like these that I am glad she is on my side

As far as defrosting goes:
Heaters and the like won't have much effect on frozen ground with the temperatures we have had. The frost is very deep into the ground at this time of year. The big challenge with the side that is still stuck is that the rim is frozen in place. Once the rim is free it should be a little easier like the other side was... just deflate and reinflate the tire and it pops free. For the tongue jack I used a torch to free it (and about 15 mins burn time). We decided it would not be a good idea to use the torch on or near the tire

Warmer temperatures are here this week (even getting above freezing!!). At this point I have plans to chop the rim free and move the trailer this weekend. Wish us luck!

Does the stove work? I'd test it by boiling water; lots of water!

How Trilling! We know eggzactly what you are eggperiencing! We well remember the hatching of our egg. It too was a Trilling day for us.

BTW, Welcome to the eggcommunity.

A point: In your renovations do not tear out any of the interior fiberglass. It is in there as strengthening bulkheads helping your body retain its shape.
