Re: TGTBT

We've been getting a variety of uses in the 8 months we've had our SMB. Here's Christine's most recent production that had some SMB action in it.

I wanted to title the video "7.3 on the Richter Scale", but nobody except diesel cognoscenti would get it.

Before the starts, I need to explain two things:

1. The load on the SMB for those pulls was about like pulling a small ski boat out of the water... no strain, and, not "challenging". It just made for interesting footage. So no indictments for SMB Abuse.

2. There exists a sympathetic faction for the preservation of old barns. I make my living building furniture from salvaged material from old barns/sheds/houses. I love 'em too This particular structure was rather crappy and had no "vintage" element to it, whatsoever. So, no indictment for Old Barn Abuse

Re: TGTBT

just watched your last two videos. Very entertaining, though I found the use of the Forum shirt to be offensive

Jage should charge you double!

Way to go!

Re: TGTBT

We present another of Christine's little films, with the van in one of its many uses.

Note: Graphic images of meat gathering. Might be off-putting to some

Re: TGTBT

Here we are in the middle of winter. Christine gives us hope with a video of our 3-week New England summer vacation via SMB. We camped all over the region, sleeping in a house only one night at her brothers home.

This one is fairly long (15 mins) because we were hamming it up for, well, for ourselves. So, we hope there is enough SMB content to appease the forum audience.

We WAY recommend a tour up there in the doldrums of summer. BTW, we are meeting up with Jage and Kim at Palo Dura Canyon (TX Panhandle) on April 25-28, so stop in if you are in the area!

This video is on VIMEO, copyright problems on YouTube, so you'll just have to click on it this time, sorry. Comments, please, please!!
