If you've been reading this blog for a while, you know I bought a really nice aluminum step.
Then I ran over it at Slab City.
Then I bought a replacement.
Then I left it behind at a campground at Roosevelt Lake.
Then I went back and got it before I'd gone too far.
Then, what I haven't shared yet, I left it behind again a week ago, at Morro Strand.
By the time I realized I'd been stupid again, I was 150 miles away. Mmmmmm, no, I wasn't going to burn up $80 worth of gas (and five hours) to retrieve a $55 step. I'd get another one. Someday. In the meantime, I'd do without.
Well, since we pretty much have a woodshop set up here, and there's a stack of scrap and salvaged lumber, I figured I'd build a step this time. It wouldn't be as high tech, but it would be cheap. And no tragedy if (when) I drove off without it.
So, ta-dah! Sort of a micro deck.
