Michelle, be sure to check out the insight other recent rivet masters have had upon reaching the magic number:

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

I thought about something cute but that has already been done. Any attempt on my part to be witty run now would not work. Too pre-occupied by projects for my truck and trailer while in the warm weather. I have to get a few done before I leave for the Can opener.

I have all kinds of dreams/thoughts some half awake some asleep. It is typical of what ever my Passion is presently. I guess it is just typical of where or what our minds are occupied with. I do think it is healthy but sometimes I wake up tired and with long lists of things to to and check! I got out of bed last night to raise my step after reading Devomans post about a opening whenit is down. It was about 2:00 am!

Let's take a look at your dream and try and break it down:
I was towing to a rally (upcoming Can opener probably got this part in there). For some reason I was towing through an old military base (been to many). After leaving I looked in the rear view mirrow and could not see my trailer!
The military base is a clue. Military equates with power, this is most likely represents your move to the PSD. Let's move on....
I stopped got out and was amazed to see something had squashed it to half its normal height! The door still worked. I opened it and looked in. Everthing was a mess (duh!), but you could see to the back of the trailer. The bed was still intact and useable. Ok now the trailer is totaled. (flash back to my real accident)
This has everything to do with the accident. The trailer had pulled you around and flipped your truck, it had become too big. Your mind had reduced the trailer to a more manageable size for you. While still functional, it was no longer a danger to you. Let's see what else we can find.
Another airstreamer pulled up and asked what happened. I responded, I did not know. He offer up his assesment of the situation, it looked like someone took a fork lift to it and pushed it down. Ok, who would do a thing like that? No answer.
The other steamer in this case was most likely the forums. You are asking a serious question and you get a meaningless reply. You ask again and the thread dies....
At this point I woke up and had to use the girls room. I wanted to see how this dream ended but when I went back to sleep I had different dream the rest of the night. I am not going there with that one.
Did you get up and go to the bathroom or did you dream you did? Was this your way of running from the issue and not seeing it through?
Maybe it had something to do with the italian food I ate that evening. Too much garlic?
If you break down the dream it is easy to understand what it means.

Then again, maybe it was the garlic....

Some dreams are prophetic. I'd had a dream a few times in October that one of our large trees in the back fell on our FC. We do have a lot of very tall trees in the back, close to thirty of them, so it's a valid concern and it did happen to one of our SOB's several years ago where a huge chunk of tree just grazed the back corner, but that type of hit on the FC would be disasterous. I've kept the FC stored in one of my portable garages (from Costco) but after having that stupid dream half a dozen times I decided to move it into my shop since my car restoration is currently stalled . We had a surprise heavy and very wet snow and then rain and huge wind storms through out the last half of November and early December and wouldn't you know it, both of my portable garages ended up playing kite and ending up down in the creek. They were very aggressively anchored and on their way up and over the one covering my car hauler damaged it quite extensively so I imagine the Airstream would have taken quite a hit. So was it premonition or what? Don't know, but I do know in the past when I've dreamed the lotto numbers and Donna's been coerced into changing her usual numbers to the ones I'd dreamt we've not won a thing where her's often win at least what we paid for the tickets.

Happy New Years and now you can have a new dream a tad bit more positive - maybe it's you doing a perfect back-in to your spot with all those witnesses with cameras in hand.

Not sure what I had

Almost every time we go on the road w/our Safari, and when it's night time and I'm sleeping..I'll invariable wake up suddenly...

I look around in the dark, and wonder where I am

Then I realize, I'm safe

Is that a dream or nightmare I've awakened from????

Haven't wrecked my AS, but did ruin a Beech V-Tail in a crosswind one morning. Congrats on the Rivet Master satus!

And the winner is....

This dream breaks down very simply.
We are at an informal rally, lots of forum members.
Lots of sand so I guess we are at the beach.
Samatha Brown is there filming for the travel channel.
Wet T-shirt contest is on the list of planned activities.
The scoring is handicapped; includes an extra 10 pts. for age over 50.
With the extra 10 pts. on her score card, Blanche beats Samatha.
Samatha, a sore loser, takes her film crew & leaves.
Our rally is never seen on TV.
em takes Blanche & leaves for home. The spoils of a rally contest.

Note: The original dream was a bowling contest.
I woke up, went back to sleep and re-scripted the dream for the T-shirt contest.
With a little tweaking anyone can have sweet dreams.


Travelers by aluminum roadships, loyalists to one species,
masters of convenience, herdsmen steeped in maintenance and restoration.
