Teardrop Build

We’ve started the process of building a Teardrop camping trailer.  A friend of ours is building one and we really liked the idea.  A full manufactured camping trailer is out of the question for us financially, but a teardrop that we build ourselves is quite afordable!  You can follow the details as we post them on the “Teardrop Build” page linked off the main menu.

Engine Replacement

About a month ago I started a project… replacing the engine in my 1990 Jeep Cherokee.  It had an oil leak from blowby that caused puddling under the jeep every time I park, not to mention coating the inside of the engine compartment with grime.  I’ve now got the new engine in place and I’m hoping to start it on Sunday!

UPDATE:  The Jeep is running well!  Did my first longer drive it in today to Spokane.  It pulled up the hills much stronger than before.  Previously it had to repeatedly downshift on the long hills coming out of the valley, but today it went right up without a problem!
