I would only take it if the guy would let me take the tires, axle, mirrors, guages and a few other items and then pull it away from his house and set it on fire. And if he would provide the marshmellows.

Now now. Don't be so quick to dismiss. There is potential in this heap to be a hunting camp. Take the wheels off an slide it into a spot in the woods, put a roof over it, shore it up and add a pallet deck. A few bunks and a poker table, wood stove in the corner.

Let me know the address and I will be move in soon.

Thanks for the ride today, Marc.... I needed to get out, even for a short one.

Didn't really get enough of that nice R1200GS in the frame, did I ?

Thank you Blake. It was a blast and I might even be able to put up with the coming week.

I did head up Coal creek a ways on the way home and it got a bit chilly.

No and hell no. That's a wood frame with aluminum siding. When water gets into the walls and ceilings, things on will rot very quickly. You're going to discover cancer everywhere you look. It's not even worth stripping for scrap metal.

Were you guys on South 93 about 11:45? I saw the bikes go by, and thought that looks alot like the W blake bought! I was just headed home from skiiing back to boulder in the truck.

Cheers

edit: I would also run from that winnie!! If you are dying for a project give me a shout and we can work on something. There are far better investments of time and money than that RV. I got my all original 1976 popup in great condition for $900, far better deals are out there!

There's only one solution for that Winnie.
At about the 40 sec mark.

could be

I rode surface streets up to Marc's place and killed 90 minutes rambling around getting up north.
We took a pretty short spin, old Wads to 100th out past Stoney Creek 9-hole course to Indiana - then a rip thru Candelas Pkwy west of Standley Lake to 93 and south to Golden for a cuppa joe at Noa Noa, sat and talked... and wished I had warmer gloves

A trailer doesn't cause snow here... it causes snow in Moab. Thanks Leigh
