    well , some of us aren't animals and like a nice seat to poop. But I will admit, a nice poop in the woods while aliens watch is pretty cool.

    I’m not saying that I’ve decided to take a bath on mushrooms and when the water got cold i started to drain the tub and felt like my soul was getting sucked down with the water but...i was taken out of a bathtub that night shivering and cold...

    Also, trees CAN be good or bad

    How thick is that stuff? It looks very stout, what are you cutting it with? I've been wanting to try putting some stuff together but I have no idea what I'm doing. That's looking great!

    The angle is 1/4” and the side plates are 3/16”. The angle is going to hold the load, so I’m going to weld on the inside and outside, rather overbuild it.

    This was all done with a bit of light spray paint on the 3/16” to see the scribe lines and a cutoff wheel

    Hopefully you’ll have the correct size mounting surfaces for the hinge and latch. These plates are just so i have a good place to start the actual work

    After over 250 miles with the new tires I’m figuring I’m right around 14-15 MPG’s on average. That’s while fully loaded with tent, and a nights worth of camping gear.

    big difference in fuel economy on 37’s vs 35’s
