It sounded like a great idea. Improving the BedMobile to start a new season of backyard travelling in Amsterdam. I only needed to sew a new tent front, learn how to design with steel, weld, how to spoke wheels and – while I was at it – build a bicycle cart for all the extra stuff. Perfect! That would mean plenty of practise for my new skills. Seven weeks later I am still in Zaltbommel slowly starting to hate my light hearted optimism.
After buying ridiculously expensive naves by accident and scouring for cheap second hand wheels online, it was time to dismantle all the parts. To clean off the rust and paint from every nut and spoke and put the parts together again.
Now that my camera broke, my bed parts skewed, I burned away part of my hinges and I try to overcome numerous other little set-backs, I’ll take a deep breath and hope to be able to show you of my labour very soon. Be them sour or sweet or something in between.
