About a quarter way through, and plan to write an Amazon review when finished in a day or two.


And please make it an honest one. There is that last bit about Bigfoot... :shock:

BTW, for those familiar with Tony's other books


His mouth tasted like burnt plastic; it’d been that way for three days. He pulled off the gravel road, killed the engine, rolled the window down, and listened. A few snowflakes swirled back into the pickup’s cab, and he felt their bite on his hollow, unshaven cheeks. The only noise in the darkness was the metallic pinging of the engine block. The yard light from a lone ranch house burned far off in the valley. Swiveling around, he looked behind him. No lights. Nada. He sat listening and looking. Satisfied, he reached down to the hump on the truck’s floor and felt for the rubber shifter boot, pulled the base up, reached in, and fished out a Crown Royal bag. He set it on his lap, letting his eyes adjust to the blackness while absently feeling the lumps inside the velvet bag. After a few minutes, he looked around and confirmed there were still no lights moving in the valley.

What? :shock: :frightened: :NC

Clearly either a meth addicted poacher, or a tear drop builder who's been applying epoxy without a respirator in a poorly ventilated shop! :lol:

You get an extra star from those of us south of the (New Mexico/Colorado) border since you also mention Chupacabra. :thumbsup:

Maybe your clairvoyant?

I wish Grant Whipp had written one. There are others on this forum that should consider it too.

:thinking:

Tony
Not clairvoyant, but I always know what the Mrs is about to say

Book is on order can't wait.

Cheers

May I get it autographed when I run into you somewhere down the road?

I hope to make it to a Procrastinators Anonymous meeting someday...
just as soon as the steering committee gets around to scheduling one!

But what if that decreases the value? :frightened:

Quick tip for Amazon reviewers: turns out they reject reviews with URL's, so I couldn't include a link to tnttt. :roll:

Quick tip for Amazon reviewers...


Tom:

Hey, thanks for the review. You spent some time on it. :beer:

I hope there was something in there that you can use this late in your build?

My pleasure Tony!

Shelly and I will have to design the galley together. I'm liking the idea of galvanized metal on the counter-top, so I'll see what she thinks. In a broader sense though, I remember a lot of your advice for us that went into the book, so there is a lot in there that we were able to use and take advantage of. Thank you!

I just gave you a 5 star review to help along! Hope it posts. It will be under a friends name (her account) I think...


RJ:

Your check's in the mail. :FNP

Thanks, now, what do you really think of the book?

TearDrops, Tiny Travel Trailers, Boats, Sheepherder's Wagons ...

innovative/informative resources come from many different directions in many different forms

and many of those forms have elements that eminate from several seemingly totally different games

Tony, your "manual" arrived just over a week ago and was instantly placed in que in the old man's "library" for serious perusal

it came to the top of the stack just this past weekend and has done a real well job of capturing my interest ever since

so far your work and documentation has provided me w/ a number of really good ideas along w/ the "how-to" for implementing them

i always appreciate documentation of projects that not only shows the successful ways to accomplish whatever and really appreciate documentation of missteps and the paths taken to correct/disguise/overcome them

showing folks how easy it is for any/all of us to screw up and proving the only failures happen when the individual throws in the towel and quits gets n keeps my attention

the illustrations pictures and printed words do a GREAT JOB in this old retyred General Shop teacher's opinion

MANY THANKS for your work

That means a lot coming from you. Did you catch any safety issues?

If you don't mind, jump over into the jungles of the Amazon and give it a quick and honest review.

Ha! Saw the cartoon before reading all the words, and assumed somebody planned on building that room into their tiny trailer. Now wouldn't that be something! :lol:
