Bob Trowe is the principal (readas: Potentate) engineer of Pizza Carrello. Assisted by Ariane, the two of them have built the Pizza Carrello trailer from the first piece of metal to its current state. Since Christmas, this has been exceptionally challenging, as Bob's lost a majority of his vision.
Bob Trowe suffered some kind of sinus funk over the holidays which caused a bit of coughing. On two separate occasions, he coughed harder than normal and hemorrhaged a blood vessel in his eyes. His vision is now almost completely blurry, leaving him unable to read, let alone weld. With the help of some Avastin injections, Bob's vision should be restored within 6-8 weeks. We all have our fingers crossed and can hardly wait to have him back among the seeing.
In the meantime, Ariane Jimison has truly stepped it up, providing a new direction in the way this mobile unit is being assembled. Though fearful of the new direction, and new skills required to keep its momentum up, she's handled it with ease. We couldn't have come this far without Ariane's enthusiasm and glowing determination to keep the new direction alive!
Pizza Carrello is building a trailer on which to build a wood-fired pizza oven. This blog documents the progress, struggles and successes of the construction project.
