I’ve finally nailed down salient details of my plans to take my Geo Metro on the road. I’ve chosen something close to a traditional Mongolian ger (yurt) as my primary office/residence. It’s lightweight, spacious, sturdy, self-stabilizing, and fairly cheap and easy to build.
I spent a few hours picking through cedar 2x4s at the Home Despot to find the ones with minimal knots. I got 12 8-ft. boards, which should be enough to do all the walls and the door frame. I set up the drill press and the table-saw last night, and will begin creating the walls today.
I have about two weeks to complete all my Flipside prep and any work on the ger that can’t be taken to Dallas before I head up that way to help my Mom with her foot surgery. I probably won’t be back down again until the event, and I’d like to try the ger out at Flipside before I drag it all the way out to Portland this summer.
