Into the abyss...

I have been trying to come up with something intelligent, maybe even useful, for my big “500”…but then I thought; why start now?

I am not sure what it says about one’s priorities when you realize how much time/effort is put into such a hobby (obsession?) …(Cult???)

Oh boy, I need a beer…

Bill

Good Title

A milestone of signifigance, 500 posts.
My wife says you need to get a life, I say you are ok.
But then again Airstreams are a sort of obsession marked by periods of dimentia and dilusion, but good!

Congratulations on the big 500. I think that cult may be the correct word.

Congrats on your 500th post. BTW very much enjoyed your photos of Carter. My family loves camping, hiking, and backpacking in the Whites. Originally bought our 19' Bambi as a tent replacement to use as a basecamp for hiking in the Whites. Didn't anticipate that Airstreaming would become "such a hobby (obsession?) ...(Cult???).

Congratulations on your acheivement. Watch out, the hobby, uhm . . addiction ~ OK, cult . . . . it will spread and infect where you least expect. You probably already know this.

Good job on reaching over 500. Aluminitis has no cure, but who wants one, we all want more!!!

Hydrocortisone creme will help with the itch, and Nuvite will help with the scratches...
