Hi All! Finally winding down into retirement and am getting started on building my layout. Still have to go out on the road for another year, although I am home right now waiting for my wife to get new parts - hip. We team drive over the road and expect to be going again near April. See the site @ Coastal Overland . Everything is a mess right now. I found that if I try to get it all presentable, nothing gets done. Give it a read - constructive comments welcome.

Wow I can see you’ve given this some thought! Good sized space and cool background story too.
I used to drive OTR as well, even tried the winter roads but when I went thru the ice that chapter ended quickly!
I’ll be following along, and hope things go well for your wife.

I don't see a mess at all? It looks like a normal construction phase.
Good luck and best wishes for the Spousal Unit ... mine is looking at a knee replacement in a few months.
OH ... Welcome aboard! Visit us in the "Coffee Shop" when you just want to yak!
