Rain and hot rodding

By Puddlepyrate

I long for the day when my kids move out and I can afford to build my garage! It's not that I want them gone, it's just, well, when you have to decide on feeding the kids this year or building a garage to indulge in personal ventures the wife tends to think feeding the kids more important. Damn women and their kind hearts and good sense!
I work on my cars in my driveway. I also live on old farmland converted into a neighborhood in the Great Dismal Swamp. These two facts are not a loving pair when it rains. My back yard, where my Buick is stored when I'm not wrenching on it, turns to slop. I have yet to own a vehicle that I didn't have to tow or winch from my back yard afer a good rain. Damn me and my no common sense!.Anyway, I finally got back to home port and I've arranged to take some time off over the next two months but with the rain we've been getting it looks like I'll have to build an ark to even get near my land yacht.
Anybody wanna build a garage at my house? I'll keep it clean and have a beer in the fridge for you anytime you want to stop in!

Consider building a car port. Much cheaper than a garage, and it's nice to be able to drive in and out without having to open a door. Plus, it'll never get cluttered like a garage can. That's what I did when my kids were growing up, after many years of parking everything outside. It was great! But then, that was also about the time when finances were finally getting to where I could start dabbling in the hobby again, so that made being able to have more than one vehicle to put a roof over an extra great blessing.

I dropped my hobby for 20 years while my wife and I raised our two boys - no regrets; but I know where you're coming from. Good luck building that garage. You never know, one day I may take you up on that offer!
