I was on the boat with a couple buddies one night getting hyped on all my T&F ideas and one of them hit me with a really good point.
"You need to figure out how to connect with dudes like us that aren't on social media."
Well, Josh. This is what i came up with... later that night.
I was looking online where all good ideas come from these days, pinterest, and i kept seeing cool looking food trucks... i knew after about 20 minutes i needed to build one out of an old camper and it needed to hold all my surfboards.
So i started sketching.
Then i started shopping.
Then i found one in California for $500. I bought it.
"Rob, you want to drive to Cali with me for the next 22 hours?"
Of course Rob said yes, he's Rob. We all need a Rob.
So on half a night of sleep Rob and I caffeinated ourselves down to CA and back in one day and had this gem of a find in my driveway.
It had been 72 hours since Josh's challenge.
Problem solved, and project started.
many moons later
many ideas later ( I thought it would be cool to up-cycle the old cabinets and fixtures from the original camper so I milled them up and used them as the new floor tiles. )
lots of paint later
many feet of weather sealing tape later
many many messes later (next project in the garage)
this work of art is finally ready for the road.
Come say hi sometime and check it out.
Now for the next project. Here's the current list:
- Ski Press
- Mk1 Rabbit (you might have seen it poking out of the garage) I'd like to hang at a few cars and coffees or something. Also it'll get a bit better gas milage than the truck for solo trips. The VR6 is in, just have to button up all the loose ends. More on the rabbit soon.
- Screen Print Studio
- Demo boat!?! Josh has some good ideas! (prob next year)
