Fake News- Airstream

The only thing that popped on my last Off the Grid Boondocking trip to Wyoming in my Airstream... was a bottle cap.

One Gallon Diesel- 1,254.1 miles

While on a camping trip, towing a 25 foot Airstream, I went from San Francisco to Denver, Colorado on less than one gallon of Diesel. A 1,254.1 mile, one way, trip.

The tow bill was $5,234.00.

Hydrogen is lighter than Air...

My mini car was seriously overloaded. The bumper was almost dragging the asphalt.

My 34 foot Airstream was overloaded with corn dogs and beer.

My neighbor, Goober, uses Helium in his Tow Vehicle and Trailer tires at 80psi. Heavy gas in a tire is counter productive, he says. He’s the expert. I said… “Lets Do It’.

The Helium replaced the Nitrogen and took care of everything. I had more carrying load capacity, using a lighter gas in my tires. So I attached the four bicycles onto the back of the trailer.

Volkswagen ‘bugs' can tow anything... as long as you have Michelin 16” LTX Tires on the the Tow Bug and Trailer.

Repossessed Airstream... Hong Kong Bank

My Airstream is to be repossessed. The loan was through a Chinese Bank in Hong Kong.

Federal Law says that a Chinese Bank in Hong Kong cannot repossess an Airstream made in the USA. Only those parts that are made in China.

All I have left are five loose Michelin tires, two propane tanks and three rolls of toilet paper.

(OK, that is it. Fake Airstream News... is for everyone participating.)

That’s bullshot, because that tow bill would cost a tenth of that. You need to stop treating us like fools Ray. I am on to you Ray, and I’m not buying it.

Two well used, dinged up, dusty, folding Lawn Chairs

Nancy and I have traveled in our Airstream for many miles and weeks of our lives. The Airstream remained. Tow vehicles, replaced.

Two items that were precious to Nancy and myself… were the two well used, dinged up, dusty…folding Lawn Chairs.

The campsites were always situated high and dry. Out of the brisk winds at elevation. Chosen for the best views. Far away from the noises of civilization, but among the sounds of curious birds and the wind through the pine needles, whispering gently, asking that we stay a day or two.

The lawn chairs were always the last to be tossed into the bed of the pickup, but always the first to be taken out. Unfolded, side to side in front of our Airstream, facing Sunset.

When my wife passed, I loaded up half as many supplies as before. Some items were missing, as I had forgotten to use the check lists that Nancy spent so many years perfecting. There was no one to remind me there were empty spaces, which use to be full.

Two items that were not forgotten, were the two well used, dinged up, dusty… folding Lawn Chairs. Each were loaded in the same manner, unloaded, and set up next to our Airstream towards Sunset.

That Sunset, I had more of those best conversations between a couple, married for so many decades. Only one of those well used, dinged up, dusty… folding Lawn Chairs was used that evening. But the memories filled both.

(Often too many of us forget what is most important in our lives… To me… are those two well used, dinged up, dusty folding Lawn Chairs. A sense of humor. Being able to laugh at one’s self and the other's. Talking with one another about anything, even if it is only a glance and smile. When so much news is Fake today… our Airstream and those two well used, dinged up, dust lawn chairs are important and real.)

Friends. Post #12 is Fake News.

This a reminder if you cannot enjoy a few laughs together, shed tears among ourselves over good or bad news, disagree on any subject dear to your hearts...

Celebrate the passing of a spouse doing what you would have done together.

When my or Nancy's life end... we will have those two well used, dinged up, dusty, folding chairs facing Sunset to continue those long conversations as if we both were there, together.

So glad that is fake news, but your point is very, very well taken! Thanks Ray
