How far did you have to go to find your hurricane hinge?

Gotcha. (Does that translate?)

You need to put your teardrop on a boat and come camp.

This weekend good weather in the Netherlands and I moved my teardrop trailer from the building-tent to take some pictures. She is ready in a few small details.

Let the camping season begin.

There expecting a huge storm on sunday in the Netherlands so a good moment to remove the building tent.

First time i could see my teardrop from more than 3’ distance, and use the awning.

She’s a beauty.

Not that I have the mental wherewithal, patience or wallet to do something like that fine piece of work, but by God I like to see it done.

Be proud. That is a really nice rig you made. Love the coal oil lantern graphic. You and your lady will enjoy it.

All campsites in our region are closed due to the coronavirus, but last weekend we were able to put our teardrop on a campsite. It was for a photo shoot with Alpacas. Now waiting till it's allowed and safe to camp.
