A machine

James Vincent McMorrow, "This Old Dark Machine" off his 2010 album Early In The Morning. He's an Irish guy from Dublin. Folks compare him to Bon Iver and such, but this particular song reminds me more of the 1970's group America.

  1. About the camping post..

    I've been trying to think of some way to make a slide-out platform of some sort to create a compartment long enough to sleep in. Drape bug netting over the liftgate, and voila.

    In 97 I took up shacking up with a woman that had never been out of state, she owned a 93 Toyota Tercel, you know how small they were back then.

    I took her on a ten state ten day trip through a fair share of the western states.

    Made up light weight side walls and a roof and back wall using door skin panels) with a door in it (with a window)that would attach to the back of the Toyota after opening the lift gate, used a little material to span between the structure and the car and strapped the panels to the top of it when on the road.

    It worked great and didn't take up much time to set up and take down, we even spent a night near the rim of the grand canyon.

    But by the time we got to lost wages I was worn out from all that driving and won 146 bucks on a slot machine so we got a hotel room that night.

    I was so tired that I didn't even feel like screwing, LOL.
