Re: something good happening in my town

As the economy worsens, and more folks either end up losing thier homes, or have much less disposable income it appears that perhaps many folks will have to band together to help each other out. More bartering, more give and take, and all of this might not be bad. Unless of course you live in the mi...

Re: any one on the east coast

Headache, I hope the cat food was for a real feline, not just what was left on the shelf at the store for your own snack needs! :D I saw on the news that there were really bad flooding issues with alot of places up and down the coastal areas. I'd rather take wind issues any day over bad flooding. At...

Re: A Funny Thing Happened.....

Of course the Republicans all swore it was the Obama fault, but then some political pundits said it was the economy getting ready for the big shakeup. Others said it was the founding fathers all rolling over in thier graves at the same time. Maby it was all the collective Washington BS hitting the f...

Re: 1989 S1600 White Rhino

I lived in a nice 30-ft RV trailer for two years while out of town on a job. I had access to water, but not to any sewage drainage, either gray or black water. But- I could drain the gray water directly onto the ground because it helped to water the lawn where I was parked. My black water tank was 3...

Re: Will it be a Housewagon?

This project looks like it's going to be in the spirit of the '70's! Excellant! Just start building and go from there. Let the old creative juices flow, and do what you want as you go. This ought to be a great project to watch! I am looking forward to this one!!

Re: Gypsy engagements/wedding

There is a TV show on cable and satellite being shown here in the states about Irish Travelers, who live in the UK and Europe. I take it from the contents of the show that they are what used to be known as gypsies? Although for some reason I always thought true gypsies were from Romania for some rea...

Re: Our NZ housetruck build thread...

I'm glad to see your update! It's a bummer about having to stop living the good life to go back to work and make some of that 'filthy lucre' better known as money. You are so right, we all need to work to live, but never should we live to work. That is just backwards! In the end all we will have is ...

Re: 1973 Blue Bird

I heard from Rudy today, and he won't be coming back. He has alot on his plate right now, being in economic survival mode has him quite busy now just trying to keep his head above water. He added alot to the site, and he will be missed!

Re: 1989 S1600 White Rhino

And may the Force be with you! 8) Cornbinders are pretty good old trucks, and the old U-Haul versions can take alot of abuse. Now you have your project, so as time, money and accommidations alllow, you can tear into that list of 'to-dos'. I always did like the U-Haul truck box on the biggest movers,...

Re: dead

Many of my family live in the Ft Worth, Texas neck of the woods. I see in the news that the Dallas/Ft Worth area has had 40 days straight of over 100 degrees or more each day. I always said Texas was a good place to be from, but I can't seem to get any of the family to budge from there. Maby heat ex...

Re: dead

After all this frenzy of typing activity on my part, I was going to have to get therapy for my tired little typing fingers. So maby I will have to give them a rest for a few days! :lol:
