Default Bored with building or flying around the pattern?

Life can be far more exciting, just try trailering your plane. If you do enough stuff wrong, life can definitely get more exciting!! Maybe even more than you really wanted.

Built an off-plan 9A with too much fuel and too much HP. Should drop dead any minute now.

Looks like you should've used the big trailer to start with!

Looks like one of those "Harbor Freight" folding trailers...kinda light duty for hauling a -12! (Ask me how I know)...or I only thought about it for a short while; and finally settled on a four place snowmobile trailer.

I am thinking I would ditch the harbor freight trailer in the ditch, grab the airplane and continue on. Looks like your stacking 2 trailers on top of each other with a 401k savings plan on top of that.
