it's been a while...

well, even though you may be wondering what happened to me and the trailer, things have been rolling along and progress has been made. i have woefully neglected the documentation of the renovation process, mostly because i am a lazy tv watching american, but also because any free time i have to spend related to the trailer must be used to work on the trailer. after spending hours sanding, painting, sanding, repainting, polishing, and agonizing over perfection i am spent and can't even think about posting pics and writing up what i have done. some are really good at doing that. me, not so much.
anyhow, here are some recent pictures showing the current state of the trailer. i am getting excrutiatingly close to varnishing the interior wood and starting to rebuild the bed and dinette supports. i am planning to register for school again in the spring, so i have set a hard deadline (i mean it this time.... :) of 12/31/2010.

wish me luck
