But of course Gene was the first one to post a reply on "The Argue Thread"
Kinda started the ball rolling.
That one cuts a lot of tension. If a thread gets out of control, Gene may refer them to that thread.
But, I agree that this is a great group and being here a little less than 3 years, I have learned a lot.
regards,
Joe

Agreed!

Although, I did have member (that I won't name) who felt the need to private message me about the video I posted telling me that "good videos are good to see but the gum chewing is not pleasant."

I've often wondered if she has such a disdain for gum chewing that she couldn't help herself or if just likes to send private criticisms.

Air Forums members always provide information or very clear guidance to the source of the needed information. New members are always greeted with a warm welcome and extensive help without question. I hope this will always be the culture of the Air Forums and the membership.

Just my two cents that I thought needed to be shared.
I believe some lives have been saved because of the good information here.

As a person in the entertainment business I am astonished by the complete lack of a sense of humor on the part of most of these people. They evidently think their worn out trailer or MOHO was designed by Picasso. You buy em. you drive em. Your kids, who have no idea like you what they're worth put em on ebay and hope for a downpayment on new truck. I have been busted beyond comprehension by a lot of the people who visit here regularly. I absolutely love it. I am NOT trolling but I guarantee you that a 'moderator' will eliminate this post and ban me from the site in the next five minutes. There is always RV net. So be it.

If you think airforums is cool, try one of the rallies! Best group of people ever, and what a sight to see when you get a bunch of airstreams together.

I agree with the OP and all but one poster here. This is a great group of people.

Stress Reliever

I don't know about the rest of you all....but I lead a very stressful life.

My work is very stressful. I've got a lot going on at home...I'm always busy. I work about 60 hours a week at work and probably 20 hours a weekend at home....

The Silver Trailers to me are a Stress Reliever! Maybe that sounds nuts, as we end up wrenching on them all the time....but I find it to be...fun. Theraputic even!

Sure, a big ol' monster bus conversion would have more room. But man oh man do I like to get my old silver twinkie shined up (I use Parfe wax...) and put the five blue ZipDee's out. Rare is the time that I go to a campground with the old girl and set her up and not get compliments. And I don't mean to sound like some arrogant alumamaniac. No, I like my old trailer for what it is. Sure, maybe it cost 1/50 what the rig beside me cost, but I still get compliments.

My dad owned a slew of the white boxes with the stick built frames...they all leaked and rotted up. My silver tube needed a little Kool Seal on the roof seams but other than that, she's cool.

The work I have done on it has been a labor of love, so to speak. Yes, maybe I am nuts...but some physical work on a recreational vehicle I find to be a great de-tox from day to day managerial stress.

Besides, my two young kids love going camping....if you can call a 34 foot trailer with a/c camping (when I was a teenager, I'd walk into the woods with my Bowie knife and not emerge for three days.....all I can say is sleeping on my Simmons Beautyrest pillowtop and having a hot shower beats the heck out of my stick and leaf lean-to that I'd build out of the wilderness!)

Silver Rigs Forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!

As a person in the entertainment business, I am astonished at the inability of some people to realise that if people don't laugh, you may not be telling the joke right.

I love this forum.
