I love seeing the latest Pepper pics. :-)

They're looking at you so adoringly!

omg you have THREE beagles on your lap!!!!!!!
Jan 29, 2018 2:12 PM # 
I was actually thinking how good you looked!!

Well done, Valerie and Pepper! Despite what our splits may say, we can only claim about a minute of beagle-related mistakes. We'll have to train our beagle and baby to do better before they can take on Pepper again.

Also, it was pretty adorable seeing all three beagles in the e-punch house. I hope Boomer sticks around for a while!

Very cute. What a dog wrangler you are!

You all look like you’re having so much fun together!

Thank you all for your kind words and encouragement. Every bit of it is appreciated.

Gail - If I can say so myself, thought the same thing, and that was good for me to see.

Boris - You only had the baby handicap. :) The beagle handicap was to Laura. Boomer did not want to go the way she wanted to go.

Reference the epunch house - being able to set up out of the rain in the snack shack reminded me how much I want one of these!!

That would be amazing!!! Is your vehicle strong enough to pull it?

It would need an awesome exterior design customized for Valerie.

It really is a good idea. Imagine the equipment that could be permanently installed and not hauled in and out of the van every weekend! Monitor mounts on the exterior back side, generator hookup... HEAT! It could be quite the customized epunch station!

(We're bad influences, aren't we?) ;-)

Nah - not bad influences, at all.

Yes, I think the tow package on the T&C minivan will be sufficient. I wish I had gotten it 10 years ago. I still have the tent in my van from Fountainhead, after we didn't need it. And, a cooler, some control stands, radio controls, etc. I hate when my van isn't empty.

My main issue is, besides making sure it is totally awesome, is whether it could go where I wanted it to go to be super useful at the events.

The third side also opens...put the TVs on that side with maybe a plexiglass insert, so things stay warm when needed.

My concern would be that larger capacity just means more things hauled. Something about stuff growing to the size of its container.
Feb 8, 2018 11:10 PM # 
I think the weight restrictions would keep me in line, and I don’t really have a desire to carry anything by my stuff, which I have worked hard to keep contained. Imagine it...bins under the table ledge for wires, cords, etc. :)

Does someone want to design the outside for me? These are other colors besides white. Or a skin?
Feb 13, 2018 2:16 AM # 
Is this a foregone conclusion or just a dream in the ether?
Feb 13, 2018 11:01 AM # 
I think my sister would love to do a nice O-design!
Feb 14, 2018 4:45 PM # 
Hmmm. I think we saw some pretty mobile designs at the relay day for Oceania Champs last year. They sure managed to get espresso out into some remote places. Or else our O-venues are just going to have to meet "the Valerie standard" for access.

This definitely sounds like a great idea. Esp. if the espresso suggestion is followed with perhaps also a cooler, grill, coffee maker, beer tap for the beer-O. Would certainly be a winner.

Heck, if I wanted an RV, I would have gotten one already. ;-)

Though, the trailer option I am liking is a toilet!
