Sandy and drove to Sacramento Ca. Friday to pick up a homemade dune buggy that will fit in our new toy hauler.
It is smaller than it looks...but at 10.5 feet it will fit in the new toy box rv we bought when we sold the farm.
The toybox has a garage that can serve as a second bedroom/man cave for me when Sandy joins me on the adventures. We found a used 39 foot 5th wheel that is like new even though it is as old as my other 5th wheel and the price was fair. I will now have to remove all my solar system from the old 5th wheel and install it in the new toybox. This will be a lot of effort for me, but should be worth every bit of the trouble and I hope this will be my last trailer. I'll do a post once I get it home.
For now here is the trip to pick up the Mad Max.
Our trip started very early Friday morning 2am. We drove west and stopped just a few miles from Wendover
|The salt looked great this early|
The rest of the trip was a mad rush as the seller was waiting for us and he needed to get on a plane to travel for work.
We got in and out of California pretty quickly, but what a mess........I hate traffic and crowds!!!!
I was not able to find out much about the buggy yet, but it was done much better than if I had built it myself......I'm pretty pleased with it!
We did not see many bugs.....not like when I was a kid, guess these things are getting rare. I saw 3 bugs being driven on the whole trip and only 4 or 5 sitting in back yards. Things have changed.
Reno was busy this week as it is the Hot August Nights this week and it would have been fun to check it out, but we needed to hurry along.
We did stop and eat all you can eat Lobster Buffet.......I tried my best to get my $75.00 out of them.....I had 5 lobsters and at least 10 legs not to mention a bunch of other stuff.......Sandy hates lobster so I had to work hard to cover the cost for both of us.....lol
Sandy did have plenty to choose from and she said the food was very good........I loved it!!!
The parking lot was interesting too....
We spent the night in Winnemucca Nevada after I realized I could not sleep in the Dodge
The Mad Max is a bit hard to get into but I do think it will be a part of the family for a long time, both Sandy and I like it alot!!!
Here we are home safe and sound....If you look closely you can see my next big project.....finish the landscapping!!!!
