    So, I brought my M101A3 home last night from MCAS Cherry Point and I am in the process of planning the "build" of the trailer for my off-roading, camping, and hunting needs.

    Who on this board is a good welder - the first thing I am going to need is a top built that can open with the assistance of gas struts. I am thinking of doing this with aluminum square tube as the frame, I-Beam as support with a sheet metal skin. I have not learned the art of welding yet...thus, need someone to help me weld some aluminum together.

    If you're interested let me know - we can work out the finances.

    I wanted to see about Germantown one of these days. And the northern Potomac systems, nothing in or after the DC area though..

    Occoquan was too dirty the day I went. Plus there is a fish advisory out for the whole system right now. In KY I would take that with a grain of salt, but out here those PCB numbers are just too high to ignore.

    Any good lakes around here to fish - we use to fish all the lakes off of the Tennessee River.

    So far I have only fished Burke. It was alright, but I think pressure is keeping the big ones down. Lots of crappie though, and a few big catfish.

    Why aluminum because of weight? I can weld for you but aluminum takes way longer an for a trailer it's not the best idea but ill do whatever you want

    Just the lid...I figure that would be light but strong enough for a RTT.

    Let's chat and figure something out.

    doesnt aluminum have to be heat treated after welding or is that only certain types or if you want to make the weld stronger?

    True story, the only time I have welded on aluminum (my welding sucks) the guy who was teaching me told me that doing a couple of tac welds is usually sufficient for warming aluminum up and that once the tac welds are done...it should be good to go to do the full welds.

    Luke, you still planning on the Peter's Mill Run on 10/12? Anyone else wanting to go? I know you said you were thinking about it Mark.

    I should be able to make it, just depends on school/work/fire dept schedule stuff.

    Hey all, new here, introduced myself a little over a month ago. Just wanted to post up a "spotted" post. Saw this rig in the Whole Foods shopping center in Fairfax. Don't know if the guy is on here, but it was a great looking truck. If you are on here, I was the Magnetic Grey 2012 Sport across the parking median.
