Sunset at the SSUVFL.
Here is the big news that we have been promising for a little while. We did it! We bought a trailer!
I know what you are thinking. I can just hear your thoughts now.
"I bet Dino needs that to haul around all of the training equipment that he requires to be the next American Ninja and Parkour world champion" said Jim and Barb N.
"That makes sense. With as active as those two are, they need space to haul around their kayaks, ATV's, side-by-sides and mountain bikes" said Steve and Deb M.
"It's Harley Davidson Orange, I bet they got themselves some new Harley's to go in it" said Kip T.
"I bet they got a huge trailer to haul more stuff to Quartzsite" said Steve and Dianne C.
Well we hate to disappoint everyone but none of the above. Let me show you a picture of the other side to see if that helps you figure out what we are going to do.
Can you tell what it is now?
How about now? We bought ourselves a food trailer! Actually we had it custom built for our new business venture.
Last summer we were sitting around our campfire brainstorming. We learned that when you drink more, the ideas are so much better. Lisa and I both had jobs working for other companies at the time and we decided that we wanted to work for ourselves again. That's when it hit me. Food trailer. Genius! But we didn't want to buy a dirty, greasy used one. We wanted new. So we started researching and found a company in Minneapolis that builds custom food trucks, trailers and carts. If you bring them a vehicle or trailer of any type, they can turn it into a food truck/trailer. They really do amazing work. Chameleon Concessions in case you would like to get your own trailer. Here are some examples of the trucks and trailers they have done. I pulled these from their website.
Ours was an easier build because they started with an empty trailer. They remove all the wood on the inside except for the floor. They epoxy the floor and install fiberglass panels, run electricity and gas lines and then install your equipment depending on your needs. It is quite the operation.
Everything in the trailer is new except for the beverage cooler. He gave us a deal on a used one that he had.
So that is our big news. Now we are busy jumping through all the hoops that are required in "The People's Republic of Minnesota". We are looking at several festivals already and other venues for the summer. We are excited to try this and looking forward to being out there having fun.
Uh-oh. Dino the Soup Nazi. I see it now. “No soup for you!”. I hope you’ll be in the back and Lovely Lisa will be working with the public! 😆. I do see some room for kayaks though. Will you be making homemade soups to sell? I wish you guys the best. Sounds like you’ll be busy and having fun! Maybe you can cook for us all in Quartzsite next year?ReplyDelete
Lisa will be doing most of the cooking. I can't keep my fingers out of the soups because I keep tasting them.Delete
My first question is, is it big enough for you to serve soup from your EZ Lift chair? Well, actually my first question was "Are they F'ing nuts?" But that question answered itself the more I read on.ReplyDelete
So, you are finally embracing the Onid and Asil heritage and destiny and becoming carnies. I can already see a new installment in the Life and Times of Onid the Soup Natzi. Hell, it practically writes itself!
Thank you for your vote of confidence. My lift chair broke yesterday so I am extremely sad about that. We are carnies now. I am thinking of having a booth beside the trailer and guess people's weight. I have a special pulled pork sandwich that you would like. It's finger lickin good.Delete
Congrats on your new adventure! Will you be serving Fergus Falls at all?ReplyDelete
Yes. We will be mainly working in Ottertail county our first year to see how it goes.Delete

Wow…congrats on your new gig! We could use more hot soup here in Q, it’s been a cool and windy winter. Good luck!ReplyDelete
Thanks. We could set up down wind of the dump station so that when people are waiting. Maybe upwind would be better.Delete
