I have to thank Chaplain Kent for defining Aluminitis for me; thank you. I usually hang out behind my wife's apron strings (Chaplain Kent's terminolgy) and every once in a while get the gumption to reply/chime in. I was looking over a thread where Aluminitis was defined and reading that it had to do with proximity to an Airstream and such. Is there such a thing as Aluminitis by Proxy? I'll explain.
My dear and lovely bride (Macfrodge on the forums) and I decided to take the boys (4 and 7) camping in our brand new large tent. We enjoyed very good weather, excellent company, great site yada, yada, yada. On the way home the Darla (my pet name for wife) says she really enjoyed our first camping adventure and that we should do this again; great idea says I, not really understanding what was happening. FYI, this was June 18,2006.....
On Monday June 19 I come home from work to find an Airstream brochure on the kitchen table. I also found out she had gone to the local dealer and toured a few different models and had scoured North America looking to find info on price and where to purchase. Needless to say, a 2005 25' International sits in my driveway and from D-day this only took 5 weeks to acquire, including an 1, 100 mile round trip adventure to pick-up said trailer! Now here's my question/s: Is this Aluminitis; is this this Acute Aluminitis or is this is a significant grey matter deficiency that may require a visit to a Neurologist??
On another note, my wife and I would like to extend a hearty, "Get well soon and our thoughts are with you," to Chaplain Kent. We both find you to be (from the forums) a kind and thoughful soul. To many more adventures on the highways aboard Chummy!!!
