You have no idea... Jay is the MASTER at finding treasures hidden in every nook and cranny!

We were laughing at a rally last year that he should be the official WI Unit's "Procurement Specialist"

Nice!

Should be worth repair and a new band. Tissot chronos go online for $250s or so with a leather band.

Definitely a step up from my Timex. I would fix it if it were not too much.

Yea!!!! I lost that in the family trailer in '68. It was my dads' favorite watch. He wore it almost every day back then. Boy was I in trouble when the pieces of the band (chewed) were found in the hampsters cage! I hid the watch as you see it in the trailer. My plan was to get a new watch band and pay for it with my allowance. I forgot to do that and dad sold the trailer a few weeks later. He sure missed that watch! How cool that you found it and our old trailer! I sure would like to see the old girl again. She was called Agnes after dads' aunt. What a great travel trailer she was... We went everywhere in her. Great memories! Thanks so much! Happy Trails, Ed

P.S. Just kidding! What a great story it would be if true though!

Biged is not that far off the mark; it's amazing what one can lose in a tiny living quarter!

This is basically the same one... Did this just buy us our trailer and then some?!?! Even though we've had the trailer a year and a half...

Vintage Watches: #3309 Tissot triple register chronograph - like Omega 321

Money Pit It Is!

My trailer sure lives up to that tag line! I have owned the Landshark since May '04 and it has yet to be out of the driveway. Last fall I had the innerspring mattresses that Artstream and others got/gave me refurbished and recovered. That cost me $900.00. They replaced the 40+ year old foam cushions on the dinette twins and the center goucho/bed. I had enough springs and wire left over to make new back cushions too! With new padding and covers they not only look great but they feel wonderful to sit on and lay down on. I have recently acquired some silver fiberglass cloth material to make blackout curtains from that will be lined. Hopefully they will block out most of the daylight on those days we choose to sleep late. Plus they will be low maintenance and easy to clean. They are heat resistant and should help to keep the trailer cooler in the summer heat. The best part is the material cost me nothing.... a great find! Ed
