Final road test

The Kalamazoo is done, more or less. And it works, more or less.

It takes more effort to drive than I expected. The steering isn't very stable, despite the caster effect, which means I really only have one hand left to pump with. It's not going to be a very practical vehicle. Oh well.

I redid the horn mounting tonight, accounting for the change in primary driver position. Tomorrow I'll disassemble the entire thing and stain the wood. That's when I'll mount the etched brass builder's plate I made. I drive it to Spokane Friday after work in pieces, re-assemble it there, load it into my dad's Burning Man trailer, and head for the playa Sunday morning. Whew.

  1. Ah... another burner. Small world, it is. My coworker/boss left last night for his trek down to the playa with trailer in tow. It'll be interesting to see if you show up in his pictures.
