Hey, I figured you’d enjoy a peek in to the Lost Sea wagon. It was tiny. Just 21-square feet. That’s as much skin as the average human is covered in. Yeah, creepy….
The Lost Sea wagon was my mule drawn recording studio and home on the road for over a year. I built it myself. Starting with a Pioneer one-ton chassis, I added a light steel frame and covered it with door skins and foam.
Call it a claustrophobe’s nightmare. It’s barely 30 inches wide. My friends refer to it as the “MRI Wagon”.
I built such a small wagon so that, even loaded with recording gear and provisions, my mule Polly could pull it alone. Here are some pics. They’re mostly from Southern Pines, where I built the wagon.
I still use the wagon. I’ve driven it hundreds of more miles since I returned to North Carolina. I plan to take it to Benson mule days (September 23-25 – Benson, NC) Sometimes, just for old times sake, I crawl inside for a nap. Cozy!
