Re: [sig] baba yaga izba
- So, can you do a mean chicken dance too, or is that
I've been tweeking the lightwieght vardo idea and
even consulted with a buddy who is very competitent in
fabrication matters for applicability.
This is what we came up with, so far....
* Harbor Frieght Tools sells a 4x8' bed trailer (269
lbs) for 219.99 w/ side wall slots, standard, rated
for 1175 lbs load capacity.
* The bed can be extended 2' over the tongue utilizing
a hinged front wall and a detachable back gate as the
* two 2X4s with a 1" slot between them at the top edge
of the sidewalls will allow a slatted bed to be slid
forward to create an extra 2' of changing room in the
trailer & slid back to close the gated front for
*angling the slots for the fiberglass ribs creates a
round top canvas cover, angling the front and back
edges provides a sun/rain shield (like a conestoga
*Thecanvas can be used as a cover for transport under
a spider bungee(available cheap at UHaul locations)
Does anyone have any clevr ideas about doors or
sunshades? I'm not planning to leave my Pennsic couch
at home but my wieght limit for towing is 1000 lbs.
BTW, I agree about the coffee saying....absolutely

- Hello. While I am new to the list, I am also on the SCA_Gypsy list and this particular thread strikes me a lot like one of the vardo threads that we had a while back. While the vardo isn't period, the construction plans could easily be altered to generate anything. My husband and I are making noises about taking the plans and making a viking lodge out of it.
