NE of Casper Wyoming. 75 degrees that day. 25 high 3 days later.

Sold! Sad to see it go. There will be another build or two at some point. I have the SC16 plans and something bigger, a FS19, Panga or OD18.

Sorry to see it go but happy you passed it on to someone who, hopefully, will enjoy your fantastic build! :D
