I'll play. I purchased my 74 Thing in Las Cruces, NM sometime in the 92-93 time frame. Third owner.

Since then it has traveled with us to Kansas, where it caught fire...something about change your fuel lines. Dragged it to Pennsylvania where it sat in a sad state of repair while I lived in Korea. Purchased all of the repair pieces and parts and eventually turned it over to a body shop for an extreme $$$ make over. Went ahead and rebuilt the engine at the same time. Then, it was my occasional driver while living in Kentucky. Took it back to PA for long term storage when we moved to Germany. Moved to Texas for a year and left it in storage. Now I'm living back in Korea for a couple of years, but I finally lost my storage (not bad, my "temporary storage lasted from 2003 to 2011). Now it is sitting beside my Doka in my garage in PA waiting my return next summer. Don't know if I'll take it back to Kansas if we move there next year or leave it stored.

What a beautiful weekend for camping and travelling - Camping somewhere in the beautiful Northeast Georgia Backwoods in a tiny sleeper cabin just big enough for a double bed and a table and two chairs. Beautiful weather, nice outing.



Here in Georgia, there is a little 3-mile stretch of highway with a familiar name:

It crosses the Savannah River where it originates as it pours out of the Lake Hartwell Dam, which separates Georgia and South Carolina and the highway then goes into South Carolina to become:


Just across the state line there is a wild little club just for for Type 181 owners....

HA Tallman, you shouldn't be in THAT club, I know exactly where it is, since I graduated high school in Savannah years and years ago. Where were those cabins, Blue Ridge?
