Never again! Motels cost to much

Hello

My wife and I decided last weekend to go to an event with some of our hobby items. The units we decided to take were too big for the cargo compartment of the Montana.

SO we decided to take the little truck and cargo trailer and get a motel room for the 2 nights.

After keeping track of the cost we found it to be just as cost effective to take the 2 units rather than using a motel and a lot more convenient.

All of us my wife, dog, cat and myself like the Montana. The cat expressed her dissatisfaction with being left at home alone all weekend.

Well that will never happen again. Next time we will just have to take both the big truck the Montana and the little truck and trailer.

Beautiful work. Once knew a teacher who built steam locomotives, I was always impressed at the scale ,engineering, beauty, and function. Yours appear to be just as nice.
