Next winter Not even going to try to start up this winter as "THANK GOD" it's almost over going to work any bugs out this spring and hit it hard next winter. Did you guys pick up your rig yet ? We went to Anchorage to see if any other vendors were there only 1 and I do not even know how that motohome made HD inspection

    We fly to NY on April 19, do paperwork etc. Then leave to Pittsburgh the next day to see Deb's sister, maybe try to buy some kitchen equipment...
    We've already bought some gear on various auctions in Chicago and other places, so we'll stop to pick stuff up as we cross the country. Denver, Salt Lake, Oregon coast to pick up Mom, then back to Alaska! Debbie needs to be back on The Slope May 2nd, so it will be a busy two weeks - MANY thousands of miles....
     
    As for the 'motorhome concession' I've seen a couple, would not be caught dead eating food out of them!  I think most do not operate legally...

      I thought the one in Anchorage was bad!!! We just got back from the Re-start and 3 of the 5 trailers there I would not even feed my dogs out of The trailers looked like crap!! I forgot to take photos. The 2 that were busy had nice signs and looked clean

          Thought about it,But there is suppose to be a waiting list. There was a bunch of vendors there, I like my area as I will be the only one in 100 miles one way and 300 in the other

            my uncle runs the weekend market. not sure about the waiting list but he said the food vendors do very well. he owns it i guess, leases out the lots on the weekends and puts on the market.

                I'm thinking of doing the Fairbanks farmer's market, since Anchorage is over 500 miles from me! 
                I don't think I would do my cook trailer though - probably a E-Z-Up and sell my chocolates, keep the trailer ready for fire season.

                  , keep the trailer ready for fire season.


                  Did you mean Fair season ?  Sending you a P.M if you do not get it let me know

                      No, I mean the Fairbanks Farmers Market, it's out by the college. Open Wed and Sat, most vendors do $500+ days selling cookies and hot dogs! We're going to do our chocolate products.
                      We will also do the Palmer Fair since it's "The Biggie" and also smaller community events. Last year we did Pioneer Days in Valdez and sold over $1,000 of chocolates in two days, so we know people up here like our goodies!

                        Well it's been a while since I posted photos, This is what the wife came up with as far as color Should not have a problem finding us in the snow. We were going to decal it up but as Alaskan weather goes its to cold for stuff to stick so we are going with banners,Yes we will have to take them off for travel no big deal as we are only going to run the trailer on weekends. I will post photos of the finished inside with all the equipment  in a week or so. Been a loooong project for us but we had no deadline. Can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

                              Done ? What's that ! In a week or so I'll post the finished product minus the banners going to take a few weeks to get them in. I'm packing up the boat and headed out deer hunting I need a break ! A few more weeks til it snows so I have time. A true ALASKAN waits to the snow starts to fall to get ready for winter

                                  I hear ya ! My plan was to finish it this spring ,But our tour business was full all summer and I was never home to work on anything for 4 months. GOOD for you on the 2nd one. You might be on your 3rd before I get done I'd like to publicly say thanks to you and others for all your help in this project

                                    I know its been a while but had some free time. Here are some more photos of the finished trailer. It has been a pain in the butt with sub zero temps.

                                          Two questions..
                                          How loud is your genny & what size?
                                          I'm still shopping generators for the bus.
                                           
                                          And what's that white crap all over the place???? You can't wear flip flops in that stuff!

                                            10,000 start up  running 8,000.It is real quiet in side the trailer. Not bad out side either a little louder if I leave the truck hooked up.I'm running the following.
                                            Trailer lights
                                            Trailer Furnace
                                            3 burner coffee maker
                                            warmer
                                            hood fan and lights
                                            2- fridges
                                            1 small freezer

                                            Pizza oven/warmer
                                            Open sign
                                            with everything running at once minus the micro and pizza oven the generator is at 40% according to the panel guage with the micro on it jumps up to 80%
