I may be an addict

I have'nt even been on my first trip in my AS. I have been working on it for a while now. Today I got new tires, and brakes. Tomarrow I will pack bearings and install the tires and breaks. I find myself looking at another AS that I drive by regularly. I believe its an early 60's and has'nt moved in some time. I want to stop and talk to the owner, I know I dont need two AS but I find it hard to stop myself. These AS are like an addiction! I dont see anything wrong with having two, but that may just be the addiction talking.

Logic said I didn't NEED two Airstreams either, but that's how it ended up. I don't know if there is a cure for this addiction (I haven't looked for one).

I'm not really fighting it. I know I will talk to them as soon as I get time away from working on the other one.

lahrfarm,

Congrats! You have made the first step to recovery...realization! That's the good part, the bad part is that there is no known cure.

One thing that helps

Stop looking at Airstreams For Sale......not even to confirm what a "good deal" you got.....that helps somewhat.......pj

Ha, we've been looking for our second Airstream since the day we brought ours home! It's definitely a bug that we've all caught. Could be worse, right?
