Not to worry, the insanity continues.......

It's been a long time since the big trip.  Almost 6 months and to be honest, we came home unloaded and parked it in the barn.  A lot has transpired since last June and really, I was burned smooth out.  It was a year long project that consumed all of my free time on weekends and holidays.  It was nice to just veg out and watch complete seasons of TV shows on Netflix without ever getting up to shower.  It was nice.........

  We have sold the 57 Ford Wagon to a buddy in California, but have no fear, we are building a tow vehicle as we speak.  We just had to thin the herd, here at the Roothawg Ranch.  It's always hard to see them go........

I have decided that we need to consolidate some of the parts I have been acquiring over the last 20 years.  So, out of the rafters they come.  I'll be building a 1935 Ford pickup.  You can follow the insanity here, Slacker Farms World Headquarters.  Hopefully, you will enjoy this as much as the Avalair build.


  1. Outstanding. Everything - your writing, photos, how-tos - Everything. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    I went to Google w/"Groovy Shower". Trying to find ideas, possible samples [hah!] of a shower stall I want to do in the 1906 house I'm re-doing. Search results showed me your picture of the bendable curtain track and I clicked.

    Great blog. Superb effort on your part w/all the details of restoring the Avalair. They matter.

    One of our 2-wk family vacations was thru Yellowstone in my Dad's 1964 Ford Wagon.
    I've still got the 1960 VW Convertible I bought in 1970 as my go away to college car. [...need to sell it...haven't...neglected it...sorry is I.]

    Great blog, great job - Keep up the good work.

    1. Glad you enjoyed it. Good luck on restoring your vintage house. I'm sure it is a labor of love.
