Ann’s Heading East …

• CATEGORIES: Features

Ann and her son Daniel will be traveling to NY, Philly, and DC over the next two weeks, so I will be juggling animals, chores, and managing the completion of 200′ of new walkways. I suspect she will be having much more fun than I! This may also affect updates …

The purpose of the walkways is 1) to reduce the dirt tracked into the bunkhouse, 2) to better marry the bunkhouse and the rest of the buildings together, 3) to make an access path for mowers/UTV from the west of the buildings to the east and 4) to prep the area for the new barn. With the pathways in place, we can then finish up the landscaping of the bunkhouse.

Before the walkways:

2022-09-30-walkways-before

Levels found and walkways dug. Forms, gravel bed, and cement to come this weekend.

2022-10-01-walkways-inprogress

This coming Saturday, the forms will be layed, rebar positioned, and concrete poured.

On the jeep front, we have decided that the next project will be setting up our corral system. Once that is done, we plan to set aside other property project updates in favor of me working on Biscuit and/or the race jeep starting roughly in early November.

1955? CJ-5 Elgin, IL $57,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ5

Unclear how the seller arrived at the above price. The seller claims the jeep has only 10,000 miles, but this jeep has had some body work and has a few mods, so the year and mileage isn’t clear. My guess is an early 1960s with an early Tux Park package. No description provided.

The Qualls’ Roadtrip Part II

• CATEGORIES: News

(<– See pics from the westward trip here, Part I)

A few days ago, the intrepid Team Qualls reached the western destination: Ventura, California. This pic celebrates that achievement:

2022-09-30-roadtrip-ventura

Wasting no time, they turned north along Highway 1, a magnificent coastal drive I’ve had the pleasure of making several times, but never in a topless jeep!

2022-09-30-roadtrip-coast1

2022-09-30-roadtrip-coast2

It appears Randy and Carson kept driving north until they crossed over the Golden Gate Bridge. There, they discovered first hand the thick summer fog that often inundates the central coast, turning the weather from warm to near-frigid and the views from beautiful to a grayish-soupy-fog (where I lived in Aptos, California, from 2003-2006, the afternoon fog arrival was a near daily summer event).

Eventually, the pair turned east towards Yosemite National Park. Here are a few pics:

Roger’s Remembrance Ride In Georgia

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

2022-09-30-roger-martin-ga-pics2-loresIn case you hadn’t heard, Roger Martin’s father Jim ‘Pee Wee’ Martin passed away recently. He was one of the “Toccoa Originals”, one of the folks that was there when Camp Toccoa in Georgia first opened.

Roger Martin at his father’s funeral

To honor his father, Roger drove up Mt. Currahee in a 1942 GPW loaned to Roger by his friend Paul Grice. The mountain road is 2.5 miles and climbs 850 feet. Roger was accompanied on the trip by two daughters, two nieces, and a few other family members. They all enjoyed the beautiful views!

Of course, Jim was one of several members of the 101st Airborne that were portrayed in the HBO series, The Band of Brothers. According to Roger, the series transformed Jim’s life. Here is unique look at Damien Winters and Jim sharing stories about making the series along with some of Jim’s experiences.
