Hey, Somebody Put Something in the Eggnog!

11 Dec

And it’s a Hot Wheels car… ewwwwww!

I could’a choked on that!



No Container Home post today! Called on account of:

It’s Hanukkah, and I’m spending some time with my family, and enjoying the season… We could all use some love and laughter right about now, right?

From our family to yours… Happy Holidays!

And For you Container Junkies who can’t survive a day without a fix, here’s a Hanukkah present for you;

I recently wrote a post about a guy in Costa Rica who is turning tractor trailers into “mobile homes.” And you’ll recall that I told you (in no uncertain terms) that it was a really dumb idea.

One of the things he claims is that HIS “boxes” are impervious to weather and wind. Remember that he’s using the “lightweight” aluminum tractor trailers, and calling them “Shipping Containers.”

A buddy sent me this, to show how they struggled to set a trailer carrying an EMPTY ISBU Container back up on it’s wheels after a windstorm. So…

Here’s what happens when a REAL ISBU shipping container on a trailer meets heavy winds. Remember that it weighs THOUSANDS of pounds more than that flimsy box that guy in Costa Rica is selling.

Any questions?

Stay tuned.
