De Milton Mobile

Title from De Chelonian Mobile, The Turtle Moves, in Small Gods by Terry Pratchett.

Test drive of truck & trailer

Maiden voyage around the block.

Milton had not been anywhere near the trailer in over 2 years. Walked right on. When I posted this on Instagram, I said it had been one year. I was wrong. Tempus Fugit.

March 7, 2015

March 12, 2017

The next step is to get Milton’s paperwork in order and head back to SSF for the various activities that require additional people, i.e. hitching and cowboying. Rodney might go for a spin as well.
