Last Call- It's Not That Kind of Bed Edition

Ted liked his car pool, but he also liked sleeping in. Carol’s new truck looked like the obvious solution.

    Ted liked to sleep in. Carol, with her brand new Tacoma*, had no objections.
    *ten internet points to the first person who clarifies it is not a Tacoma.

    I expect no less from Texas.

    Robert, do you have a larger version of the photo? I can tell it's Highway 6, that runs through College Station, home of Texas A&M (insert your favorite Aggie joke here), but I can't read that Farm-to-Market Road sign, to figure out exactly where the picture was taken. And yes, that's a first-generation Tacoma.

      I think it's probably Briarcrest (1179) and Hwy six in College Station.

    Off topic: Spectacular piece from the Saucy Minx on TTAC today.

      Agreed. I caught it via Facebook yesterday, and enjoyed reading it very much.

      Is that a single wheel trailer?

        Yeah, I've got two. (there's a joke in there somewhere)
        This one converts from a flatbed to a stake-bed, then into a tiny camper. The other one is customized in a VW roof-rack style.

          Pretty sweet! Can you trailer with the conestoga roof in place? I'm picturing it flapping like Chicken Little at anything approaching highway speeds.

            I did trailer it with the roof on. Worked great until….
            …got a flat, repaired the flat. Got another flat and shredded the tire in BFE. Ended up in the back of a rescue pickup doing 75, which shredded the cover and destroyed the bows. (Note residual slight rearward lean of front wall in first photo)
            55-65 seems to be the upper limit on the flap-test.
            I will be towing the Calistoga behind the ZomBee over Donner Summit to the Reno Lemons race in 2-3 days. Should be a hoot.

    If I knew Ted, I'd take one look at that and declare, "Must be a queen size."

    Seeing that photo reminds me of the stupid shit I did when I was that age. It's a wonder that I'm still alive.

    What's up with this lack of posts?

    One time we were getting a bed from my now-exgirlfirends house to take to my buddy's house. We put it on the roof of his Envoy, strapped it down and proceeded on our way. It was only a couple minutes to the drop zone so we didn't spend as much time as we should have ensuring it was firmly attached. About halfway to our destination, with the tunes a-pumpin' my buddy yells "How we doin' up there?" so I reach my arm out the window to feel for the mattress and just feel it graze off my fingertips as it goes airborne. A loud curse tips everyone off to whats just happened. and I turn around just in time to see the mattress narrowly miss the car behind us. But hey, no harm, no foul. A little roadrash on the mattress and we were on our way. I'm glad I wasn't laying on top of it at the time.
