I have done ever one of those, and I am sure more will happen.

Maybe I am naive, and I know stuff can happen anywhere, but crime would be on the bottom of my list. I have yet to lock my AS when it is in my yard. Heck, I leave the keys in my car and the doors to the house unlocked. I don't think I could live in an area where I did not feel this comfortable.

As a matter of fact, I lived on the left coast for a brief time when I was a young (er) man, and that is one of the reasons I could not wait to get back to New England. We may have winter (yeah-skiing!) but we are pretty safe here...I feel bad for folks who have to worry a lot about crime. Too bad there are people waiting steal/damage hard earned property...

You really need to check out a program on the Discovery Channel called "It Takes a Thief". It will open your eyes my nieve friend.

The fear associated with the risk of loss or physical damage can be limited to an extent by insurance and it can be controlled by careful driving and diligent maintenance practices and such.

The fear of someday not being able to use and enjoy it is a different kind of fear. We never have total control of our destiny.

Q: So what are you going to do?
A: Get off your computer and get back into enjoying your Airstream! And as Bob Marley said: “Don’t worry, be happy.”

Bob may have said this...he was before my time. But more recently it was one hit wonder Bobby McFarrin circa my wedding date 18 years ago next month, BTW.

Taking the edge off fear

I used to be concerned about the various small dents on my '67 Safari, until a deer ran into me (Front left corner) while traveling down the interstate. It took a lot of the apprehension away. It really wasn't a gleaming "beauty queen" anyway!

After I took off the interior walls and kicked and banged out what I could, I re-installed the interior panels and am now enjoying my AS again. I'm sure a handfull of $100's could make it look good again but I'll let the next owner make that decision. Meanwhile, one can't tell what the outside looks like while you're inside and everything works as before. Fog

What am I afraid of.....
1, Not having the time to go.
2, Theft, damage.
3, One day being too old and inform to go.
