At last, after over a year since first hearing about it, I took possession of my own Skyshed POD. My friend Pete was here with his pickup, so we drove 35 minutes to Shallow Lake to pick up the grey and white XL3 from SPI. We made a second trip to pick up a second POD, this one to be delivered to my friend Geoff Gaherty.
With Pete’s help we got the walls and dome halves assembled, and then the weather stripping and plates were attached. The dome halves were mounted with the help of my father (aka “Bambo”), and the POD was ready for business by the time the inevitable storm rolled in.
