Hey Seattle Newbie - welcome from a fellow Washingtonian! We have the most beautiful state in the nation...and it's great to create for yourself more opportunities to enjoy it and connect with other people!

See that post from Vedette up there? That's Brian and Sandi Woods, I met them just by a weird chance in an RV park's gravel parking lot in Hood River, OR earlier this summer. We both couldn't find a campsite and ended up right next to each other in the parking lot. I consider it a "divine appointment" because they introduced me to tnttt.com where I've found many friends and tons of helpful information. We spent a fun evening together talking about our adventures, though I am a newbie too.

Hey I encourage you to sign up for Teardroppers of Oregon and Washington. http://www.teardroptrailers.org
There is an event coming up Sept 27-29. I was also considering building many months ago, but alas my impatience and lack of skill got the better of me and I found a wicked deal in Spokane on my Pinecone. At any rate, while I was still in the "build" mode...I was openly invited by TOW to come to any/all of the gatherings and meet others AND get building ideas. So I offer that to you for your consideration.

Another cool resource I just found? I new magazine for just us: [url]http://www.cooltears.com[/url
Check it out!

Well, again a warm welcome and we'll see you on the road!

This is my first entry on this forum in about 3 years. I had started a teardrop project and had to put it on hold then had some spurts of build activity and I finally have some momentum! My last build journal entry was in August 2016 about when we bought a neighbor's house and completely renovated it - since there was so much more at stake with that project my teardrop. I got to do some work in 2017 and 2018 but have finally been making steady progress this summer. I focused more on making progress rather than catching up my out-of-date build journal.

I now have enough pictures and notes for a dozen good entries to show what I have done and what challenges have come along the way. When I started this I figured it would take just a few months and now looking back it has been a little over 6 years on this adventure! :shock:
