May 2004, who knew it had been that long since I started my first build. Wow I have made so many friends, but it has been a long time since I was active. New restore project, so here we go again.

It's been quite a while, but I'm still out camping in my Desert Dawg. I've drug it all over Nevada for the last 10 years exploring old mines and ghost towns. It's really made those adventures much more enjoyable.

I recently had an incident where a powerful gust of wind caught my hatch and blew it straight over the top of the trailer destroying the hatch and crushing everything on top of the trailer (antennas & the roof vent). It it time for a bit of a rebuild anyway since I've had some water leakage and fiberglass delamination. And of course, a new hatch. My website is in desperate need of an update so I'll do that as part of the rebuild. I'm thinking of filming the updates and pitching them up on YouTube just for grins.

Almost 15 years and just finished teardrop #2. I still lurk and relied on the pneumatic hatch formula thread for success! I love this forum due to the lack of unnecessary drama that I see in the other forums I participate in. Glad to be a part of this community.

Another 15 year member checking in from AZ, previously TN. Spent many happy times on this forum building my TD back in the day. Will make it a New Years's resolution this year or next (or each of the rest) to check in more often. :lol:

I............ think I joined up around 2008 or so, I say then because that's when I got it registered. Got a lot of information on building a " woody , Ben Roy" and just went for it. I built it in my daughters garage from an old boat trailer , good buys off of Craigs list, and scraps from here and there. We still use it when we go on vacation to Boise .
She's not as pretty as she use to be but she still works.
My next project ( if the good Lord allows me) is a vardo with a twist.

FEB 9th 2007 was the join date ! I have 5 tiny builds and have move to bigger and better with 3 tiny house builds each all but complete
( we all know any build is never DONE !) Have met a lot of good friends along the way, some in person, some just on line. It was a very happy and life changing accident I found this group and have really enjoyed the time we have shared.

:D

Going on 12 years. Still look up info here. Great resource to contact destination locals. Looking for reliable wi-fi hot spots now.

it is a good place to remember those who have passed who helped us all with our builds, camped with us and were true Teardroppers to the end.
