we buy long chains then cut them to length as we need them. once a year we have to go through the chains on all the trailers and Screaming Ford to get them organized.

 

cut

 

the trailers have these yellow boxes which are easy to weld on and keep the snow and rain out. in the great white north you can never have enough chains.

the southern tilt trailer is slowly coming a long with lots of changes by welding and grinding. once it warms up i can splash the black pai around to make it look even better.

when a southern built trailer comes north to the end of the world, there has to be lots of changes made. the aluminum box gets the toss and a steel box gets mounted in it's place. more to come as i work away on the trailer.

buying new chains and straps in the south and having them shipped to the end of the world is a great adventure. now it will take a good day to get them ready to go on the trailers and vehicles because everything has to be changed for the great white north. i also finally bought new winch cables for the D6 cats too.

on our trip south to get supplies, we picked up the 10" wide bucket for the mini Hoe. last year at this time i bought the mini Hoe with the extra wide bucket of 18" which is huge compared to this 10" wide bucket.

just a quick picture from 2003 when the shop was not organized and my son xena was so small plus i had hair on top of my head too.

it only took 3 months form the time of searching to the time of arrival of the new to me tilt trailer. plus we got a paying load back to the Kingdom with a broken down ford. the trailer is custom made to be able to handle full size trucks between the fenders.

since spring is not coming to the great white north this year with over night temperatures of -35c. i have been whipping up shelves in the back room of the office to put the expensive inventory in where it is warm and dry. there is over $4000.00 in filters which have no dollar value or use when wet or dirty. i'll splash the paint around in the summer when i'm done with all the changes.

it only took 2 weeks for the front end parts for my 1939 chevy to arrive. it is good to know that you can still get parts for a 79 year old truck.

This is our first attempt at selling any goodies other then the published books from the Kingdom. We have no idea what the costs are going to be on shipping and handling. We have decided to do this batch of hats first to get an idea of the costs and what it takes to ship then we can look at around the world too.

hats

The best and simpliest way to sell and ship "one" hat will be $25.00 usa or cdn money will include the shipping and handling in North America. Please put cash or personal cheque (no money orders because of the high costs) in an envelope mailed to the Kingdom. We will only be selling one hat at a time due to limited amount that have been made plus it will give us time to figure the actual shipping costs too.

another fun day in the Kingdom with another impounded vehicle. we have to have a different style of trailer for each type of vehicle because there is not enough money in impoundments to justife a $60,000.00 tilt top tow truck.

my son xena and i had to do a tow call first thing in the morning at -30c which made for good pictures. the Screaming Ford had no problem dragging the damaged mini van out of the ditch.

next we just used the 30,000lb Wicked Winch to drag the mini van on the trailer with no problems.

just sharing another memory from a few years ago when i did a tow call up the winter road. nothing went right but i did bring the broken tow truck out at -36c. the Screaming Ford has a weight box with a pulley on a stick that clips in to the 5th wheel to make it a tow truck. thansk

i had to buy a tilt trailer to haul the bombardier and the Linn tractor because climbing up the beavertail on the other 2 trailers is too dangerous.

it was an easy day yesterday in the Kingdom by using the D6 9U known as The Hood to move the loaded rod sloop. we had to move the sloop to an area of bedrock so the sloop does not sink during the spring melt that will come in june.

with the winter road about to close in a couple of days, this truck showed up in the Kingdom broken. we hope to get the parts from the south in time to get it fixed so it can deliver the load before the winter road offically closes.
