The drive from Jolon to the KOA in Salinas was relatively uneventful, thank goodness. After the drive up from LA, I was ready for something a little easier. I have never stayed at a KOA before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Friends had recommended this particular one so that’s why I booked it.… Continue reading Travelogue #2
(PLEASE NOTE: This was written after a couple of challenging nights. Feeling much better now. 🙂 ) I knew this was going to be hard. But I don’t think I knew it was going to be this hard. We’re on our third night out. We’ve moved from the farm to a really nic e… Continue reading This is harder than I thought …
Here’s a bunch of stuff from the first two days at Jolon RV. Kind of scary getting there because I had to go over the Grapevine, which is scary without being a novice trailer-tower. And,yikes, the wind through the Central Valley unnerved me greatly. But we arrived with very little damage, other than the inner… Continue reading Photo dump from the beginning of the journey.
So I’m two days away from heading out to Austin, something I’ve really been looking forward to. So much left to do but I couldn’t wait to leave. About a week ago, I had sent an email to the woman from whom I had sublet the apartment in Austin just to check in and let… Continue reading And then the other shoe dropped …
Second day of the build was a little challenging. A friend lent me some cordless power tools since I’m building in the parking garage and have no power. However, I’m used to using corded tools and being able to run them at full power without consequences. The cordless tools ate through both batteries in under… Continue reading Second build day

I started with cutting down the long pieces of wood I got for free on Craigslist. It’s enough to frame out the entire trailer. Along… Continue reading Beginning to build …
SIX PIECES OF WOOD Six pieces of wood don’t seem very important. But to me, today, these six pieces of wood mark the beginning of my next adventure. Back at the end of June, I was frustrated. I had been staying with friends, waiting to move into my fourth apartment in a year. That fell… Continue reading Six Pieces of Wood
In preparation for building the actual Teardrop trailer, I decided to build a 1/5th scale model of it. I also wanted to experiment with PMF (Poor Man’s Fiberglass) to see how strong it really is. This video is following me as I created the template for the scale model build.
I made a wish in 2014 to travel and suddenly found myself heading to Beijing, China early in 2015. Two short trips there to teach comic book creation to young students eventually led to me staying there for a year from Sept. 2015 until July 2016. During that year, I got to travel all over… Continue reading Welcome to the Chaos!
