Duct tape skin?

Postby GerryS » Sun Sep 15, 2013 6:28 pm

We had a great weekend at brown count state park in Nashville indiana this weekend. Defiantly a needed break from the normal...

Saw 5 tiny trailers....a Casita, a T@B, a compact elite (door in the rear, and what looked like a roof that raised, one that is beyond explanation and what looked like a wazzit....made from duct tape and PVC pipe. That's a unique solution :)

Anyone on this forum share the park this weekend?

Th temperatures dipped into the low 40s....I was surprised to see the temperatures that low. Hope it sent a harbinger of what is to come...

That's it! When we saw it parked, I thought it was a temporary fix for a delamination problem...I didn't realize what it was until we saw him drive past as we were having lunch by a lookout :)

I did meet another on the way out the west entrance an odd shaped little A frame with what looked like a trunk behind the A. pulled over and talked for a minute out the window and the said they weren't on the forum yet.

Was that the red thing? That's one I talked about...I didn't see them until they were pulling out. I saw them at the bike trailhead, but it was too chaotic to even think of pulling in. There was also a T@B and a much older (60s or 70s) camper that was there, and a casita...I kept trying to catch the owners, but never seemed to.


Only 3 tours this weekend. One Friday, two on Saturday. Numbers were down ;)

I hope so. Has anyone designed a business card? I used to ride a Kawasaki Concourse, there was an active forum for it as well, we used to carry a business card withy the URL and our screen name...might not be a bad idea. Especially with vistaprint being so cheap....
