    “Tiny House” has jumped the shark.

    I wonder what the interior looks like.

    Not sure if this is appropriate to post here (if not, deepest apologies), but one of my beloved S2000s is up for sale and I’d prefer it went to a Hoonitarian, so if anyone is interested, look here:

    Anyone in NorCal know if Grayback Road from Cave Junction to Happy Camp is snow-free by mid-May?

      So many innuendos! I have a dirty mind.

        It goes worse: on the way to Happy Camp there’ll be an old spiral highway; leather; regular applications of lube; a bit of choke to get it going in the morning; Madras and panniers, but likely no paneer; and a Fossil will be entered. The payoff is tall red wood and plucky work with the elbow.
        But my original question stands…

      Dunno, but it gives me an excellent excuse to post this drone footage of road workers clearing the famous “Trollstigen”-road of its winter cover. Supposed to open end of May:

        That’s amazing! How do they find the road?

        1. Sjalabais Avatar

          I’m not really sure – I suppose they use GPS, too, but in today’s paper-paper, one of the workers on another road (“Tindevegen”) is quoted for saying that the most important thing is to know the road really well. Doesn’t come across as a joke, but…I suppose they didn’t see anything anyway, with snow walls as high as 6m at the worst spots.

    Back in Boston I rode with a bicycle chopper gang (before that was a thing, you know.) This operation had a semi-nautical, semi sci-fi theme to its organization and parlance.
    About things like this we would say, “That’ll burn up on re-entry.”
    It was a nebulous statement. It could apply to something stunningly contrived or essentially awesome yet ultimately sacrificial, or to something frivolously slapped together and doomed to a fiery fate.

      i literally work with the guy who built the Minnebago. he’s pretty much an evil genius.

        That’s cool! What else has he done?

          a lot of his stuff is posted on the blog/site in your link. he does a lot of electric vehicles, and also does iron casting and welding. makes his own electric drones and RC cars, and now that he’s working with our company ( NASA contractor) he’s interested in rocketry.
