« Part 11: What a way to test out my new lumber rack! Part 12 of random series Part 13: Bryan Nash Gill's Hemlock Relief Print »

I decided to update my old toy version of my ‘00 Ford Focus hatchback to more accurately reflect the typical look of its big brother these days. I’ve made a couple of trips for Eucalyptus that have looked very much like this, complete with long branches sticking out the window :)

Gary,

Maybe it’s time to consider purchasing a small (?) trailer!

Kiwi – I ran the numbers. I think even if I didn’t have a full-time job, I still wouldn’t have anywhere near enough time. Maybe it’s because of things like this :)

Lew – I’m pricing trucks, and worrying about my credit as we speak.

Spanky – I like the way you think. I can fit some pen blanks in around the branches, too.

Mike – You’re right. Time to send this thing to the chipper.
