Hi Gary; Boy, I sure feel better knowing that when my wife has me committed to a State Institution that I may have company of people who have experienced Airstreamitus. Placing jokes aside, it is nice to know that I am not alone in getting up so early to work on a Airstream. The truth is that I was long overdue for that much fun and challenge. The secondary and most difficult challenge to me is not to cheat on my business hours, which I have considered so many times. We have a contract to build an air boat from scratch over this winter which is a big project. Customer stops in every few days after hours and wants to know why his air boat must have a double axle with wheels under it. Numerous times I explained to him that it is a all terrain air boat, but he refuses to believe me. Anyway, I want to thank everyone for encouraging words, and hopefully soon I will be able to post some pics. Thank you all. "boatdoc"

Well here in California we got our first big rainstorm of the season this week which found me outside in the pouring rain scrubbing the bugs off the Bambi. Hey the rain made it alot easier... you all know what I mean. And I am not going to work on the Airstream at all today...at least not again!

I was out on a recent day sitting in the Airstream, lights on, heater on, music on, feet up on the gaucho. Driveway campin'...it is funny how we associate a feeling of calm with the presence of aluminum around us. I know I do anyway.

Me too. Not sure what it is...maybe it's the idea of the escape pod.

Or maybe it's the fun childhood idea of a "fort or playhouse".

Or maybe it just feels so nice, solid, and secure in there.

Or............

Folks,
Thanks for the validation. My wife goes out and sits in the Argosy... heat on - lights on and music on. Now she doesn't think she is alone in her illness.
Regards

Mike
