Well like you I also have a company supplied work van but unlike you I don't want to be without my baby for weeks. I do have patience but I guess not that much. I have a few quarries round here, with logging roads, and we got a fairly decent mud pit playground area, but with some malls (mainly flea-bitten-markets) in between along with a couple where-in-the-great-heavens did the path to the fishin' hole go. I have been lurking and trying to read as many builds as I can to get a feel for what all is going to be involved in this build which in itself is a teaser since every build is different! Thanks for the advice though, I'll keep reading and listing and inventorying parts.
