OK, so we missed the deadline. We wanted to be done by Sunday afternoon. But hey, we are headed to Sarasota tomorrow with a really AWESOME trailer in tow, and most of our friends and family are sitting in the snow. Not bad.
This has been a surreal experience, right up to midnight where we were crouched in the church parking lot drilling holes for the Reese hitch by flashlight. (We needed a level lot to set the hitch properly, and they were closest.) I can't even count the number of things we did today, but I think Brett only remembered a few in his post. We're both incredibly tired from a week of 16-hour days. Without daily punch lists, it would have been impossible to keep it all straight. Brett just figured that in the last seven days he's worked 92 hours on Vintage Thunder.
I know that today we got the refrigerator and water heater running on gas. We finally nailed down all the plumbing leaks, and Brett installed the toilet. We put the bathroom back together, and finalized the dinette, and made a new pantry out of the old one, and put together the rear bumper, installed the hitch, re-screened the rest of the windows and the entry door, and a lot more.
And while we were outside drilling, caulking, riveting, tweaking, cleaning, and fabricating, Eleanor was inside whipping up temporary upholstery. We'll spend Tuesday morning (oh, it's Tuesday already ...) packing and finishing a few miscellaneous details, and then we'll be heading down the highway ... with about 100 pounds of tools for the tasks we plan to do at the rally.
