Go Bulldog!

Have you ever been inside of a high school marching band trailer? You know, they have built in cubby holes for the instruments. See?

Those cubbies seem to hold the instrument cases as the band travels hither and yon. You can see the holes from cubby to cubby where some rope runs to help keep instruments from straying.

The aisle is 41" across. That's some pretty good walking room, eh?

This trailer right here has a side door, as well as the end double doors. That can be convenient for the kiddos, huh? This one even has board ramps for rolling the bigger stuff up and in.

Wanna know why I care about this trailer? Why I am going on and on about a marching band trailer with cubby holes? Let me tell you why. David, the man that I love, was looking at Craigslist this morning and he happened to spy this 24' trailer. Now, who, I ask you, has been freaking out about space and weather and open trailers? ME! I have been, if you hadn't noticed.

We met up at the seller's home and BAM! David is now the proud owner of a trailer that we have dubbed The Bulldog. See our mascot? Yee haw!!! (Thank you, honey, for being the supportive man that you are. You never cease to amaze me.)

We may or may not knock some cubbies out for transporting larger pieces of furniture. Not sure yet. I imagine we'll get this show under our belts before we start any deconstruction.

Y'all have a great weekend. We'll be in Athens tomorrow. Maybe we'll see you at Winnie & Tulula's?

  1. Love your blog. I'll try to look you up in Warrenton. I hope to get into Texas a few days before we setup at Marburger. A long drive and by the time we get there we'll be ready to walk!
    Hope to see you soon,
    Pam

  4. Y'all, I searched cargo trailers on Craigslist this morning on a whim! I wasn't really looking for anything this big. More like 16' was what I had in mind. But I couldn't help thinking "WOW" when I saw this one! So I emailed Mindy the link and said "WOW!" She emailed me back, "WOW!" When she emailed me her second "WOW," I knew it was time to make something happen! I feel very good about this.

  7. Debbie, I am so glad I hadn't just taken a drink when I read that. I'd have spewed it all over my computer screen. Now, that's funny! David spoils me rotten and I do my best to return the favor, I assure you. He is amazing. ~Mindy

  8. Mindy, "Ask and ye shall receive." Not only do you have David lookin' out for you, but I'd say "The Big Guy" is watchin' out for you, too. Love It!!!
