At times. It takes a traveller to show the one at home what they're missing...
Some of the highlights were how close the clearance came to, when moving the mobile home into the container....
Being a hands-on tinkerer was most probably really handy when it came to the customisation of the rolling supports which helped the home stand and move. They had earlier given the truck wheels to roll backwards and forwards but the height would not allow for the item to fit into a closed container. Based on advise from another traveller, they replaced the wheels with little metal rollers which reduced the height by about 4 inches. It was a heart thumping moment when the home was being maneuvered into the container with barely 6 inches to clear on either side and just a hand's breadth of space on the top.
...barely 6 inches to clear on the each side and just a hand's breadth on the top...
**** Traveller or Tourist? ****
Though I was hoping to be considered to be more a traveller than a camera-totting, cotton-clothed tourist, I realised that while I was quite happy taking shots of plant life, experiencing top 10 must-sees which were advertised or Tripadvisor-ed and chatting with the locals, maybe sharing a meal with them; I never really saw the country per se.
