I enjoy building just about anything, and even if I can purchase it ready to go, I'd always rather try to make it myself. As you've probably read on our home page, we built our own house, from the design to framing and finishing.
My Workshop - I built this building mostly by myself too, with a few exceptions. I can now work on just about anything necessary, regardless of the weather. (Weather's a BIG factor in Wyoming, for those who haven't spent much time here.)
Mercedes-Benz Unimogs - Here's a can of worms for you! This link takes you to my Unimog pages, the largest part of our website by far. There are pages here dealing with general information, 404 diesel conversion, U1300L camper conversion, block heaters, spark plug wires, etc...
Porsche - I looked for a Porsche 911 for quite while before finding the right project. I was slowly converting an all wheel drive 1989 964 C4 into a "desert-raid" replica 959. I called it my poor man's C4RS, although it would never see any competition with me behind the wheel. I sold the car in early 2001 to a guy in Minnesota. He fully prepped it for SCCA ProRally and raced it for a couple years. I bought it back in 2005, and am going to use the impressive drivetrain he installed as the foundation for a long-travel desert buggy. I hope to start that in 2011.
Land Cruisers - My family has owned Land Cruisers since 1986. Cruisers, along with Unimogs, are the only vehicles to hold up to life off-highway in Wyoming.
RUF, Inc. - I incorporated in 2003 to build marine-grade extreme-service motorhomes, called AATREC. (Advanced All Terrain Recreational Exploration Camper) This is my corporate website.
