I am a full time RVer, and in April, I took the travel trailer in for new axels, and I went from Colorado to Delaware with my Forge in the back of the truck, tucked in the original box of course, visited my parents and went in for surgery myself. Forged pieces at the beach while recovering.
Got back to Colorado last week picked up the camper and headed to Wyoming, Forge tucked in the back of the camper.
I am in a Kampground with wifi, and now getting some work accomplished. I am selling my pieces next week in Yellowstone at the General Store at Old Faithful and fingers crossed that I have enough inventory.
It does take time getting set up to each new network, and when I am in cell range, I do use my cell phone hot spot. I camp in Forests, so I try to plan cutting in cell/wi-fi areas and finish pieces in the woods.
I did hit a few potholes in my travels, and got a little hot under the collar. I do have foam in place when traveling and of course tied down.
What can I say, I am so impressed by this machine. I have Forged in 3 states now, and next week Montana!
I am looking forward to my air filter so it is just a tad less obvious that I am doing something in the trailer with this piece of equipment, camping folks are inquisitive types.
Here’s one of the pieces I am taking to Yellowstone:
Materials! I usually use a 1/4 baltic birch. I can find that most anywhere in the west and cut it down. Delaware though, you have to be a contractor to buy it, and I was able to make a connection with a cabinet man to supply me while I was there.
I tried to play life backwards by “retiring” while still young enough to enjoy it. No Glowforge or 3D printer back then, so I did my 3d printing in wax by hand and cast it into jewelry in my 40’Tombstone - Fort Huachuca school bus that the workshop was in the front and living area in back.
I now have a regular 40’ motorhome but now it is more anchor than freedom as much that I did then is not now available.
I know a single woman who likes to take multi-day hiking trips and pretty much everyone new she meets says something along those lines. Sometime she can take her dog, but only if the trail is within driving distance.
Oh, goodness! This is what my hubs and I have been thinking about for about six months now!
New mantra: Does it fit in the 5th-wheel (as we look at new purchases). Thank goodness, George (our GF) will fit!
Ahhh, sounds dreamy! My 5-year plan is to own a tiny home/5th wheel and a pickup truck. Just today, I’ve been scouring pinterest for tiny house layouts. My requirements are steps instead of ladders, and a place to setup the GF!
