Google photos sucks the balls of Hillary Clinton is why. I placed the pic in the same public album as the rest and for some reason known only to those holes it won't show. Photobucket is getting bad too, you have to kill 16 chickens to get their upload to work, and then it only does it when it wants. If you can get the site to load at all.

I can see it now as well as the new posting. The first thing that came to mind is you either headed on a camping trip or are becoming a prepper.

It's nice to camp and not have to worry about rain soaking the floor of the tent. Being off the ground has its advantages.

Great job! It looks really good. I was wondering if you were going to paint the wheels black.

They are just plastidipped for now. I'll end up painting them at some point.

I sprayed the trailer with a $10 HF HVLP gun. It worked way better than I hoped.

The frame is still just primered black. I'm going to spray it with bedliner, along with the inside of trailer bed itself. Everything else is done.

The electric brakes work great too. Wired in and installed a Tekonsha Prodigy P2 in the Jeep.

The Tekonsha Prodigy is a good controller. My last truck had the same one for 9 years and it worked perfect the entire time. Nothing beats a good set of brakes on a trailer. One time I towed a dump trailer for a friend and his brakes weren't wired. The load was around 3500 lbs of stone. I Could not stop for a traffic light as the trailer just pushed me into the intersection.

It got a bit cold Friday night through Sunday morning, but great weather other than that.

Destroyed the factory steering stabilizer on the Jeep on a rock. Getting a relocation bracket and new stabilizer today. Driving with a bent one is interesting, to say the least....

Beer? I'm Shocked!! I've been buying AleSmith Speedway Stout, a little hard to find but worth it.

Sorry to hear about the stabilizer, but having gone off road myself I know breaking something on the vehicle is expected at one time or another. I need to put one on my 53 Dodge, tires are too big and even at the top speed of 42 it can be a handful.

It must have been nice to be sleeping off the ground. A decent air/foam pad and having your head slightly uphill a few degrees can make a big difference in getting a good nights sleep.

I had an air mattress, but the wind blowing all night Friday night made for a cold camper. I needed a little heater in there. Saturday was just as cold air temp wise, but no wind made it much more bearable.

One winter when I worked refueling nuclear power plants my wife and I bought a 26' travel trailer to live in instead of renting while in Ohio on Lake Erie. Our Per Diem paid for the trailer. No matter what, with the wind blowing off the Lake and heat turned up, we still froze all winter. We worked from 7 at night to 7 in the morning and would have to come home and thaw out the one water line that ran under the trailer to a sink opposite the rest of the plumbing with a hair dryer. The trick, had we known was to put hay bails under the trailer to break the wind that surrounded it. I find that even tent camping if I sleep on a cot in the winter it is much colder than a good mattress on the ground.
The trailer we own now has a heated underside that allows the holding tanks not to freeze. That was another thing the Ohio winter taught me, don't close you water holding tank valves. Draino finally thawed the black tank after 2 days.

Love the camo cover that you put on it. It gives it that real military surplus vibe..

I'm gonna have to try that. I saw an online beer rank of 100/100. Made in SoCal and I plan to be there one of these days.
