1. Well my favorite reads(beside the AS Forum) like my music change. I read mostly mysteries, with various nonfiction interspersed.

2. My musical taste runs the gamut depending on mood. Here's a few artists I enjoy in no particular order: Diana Krall, Mark Knopfler, Melody Gardot, Alison Krauss, Buddy Guy, April Barrows, Dave Matthews, Carney, Jack Johnson, KT Tunstall, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline, Simply Red, Morphine, johnny A, Maroon 5, Dead Weather, Deborah Coleman, Midori, Yo-Yo Ma, UB40, jeez I better stop now. Blues, jazz, rock, alternative, classical, country, cajun, no rap.

Band from the past that I would have like to have seen live would be the Beatles and Elvis in his early years. Current artist would be Alison Krauss, Diana Krall or Melody Gardot.

3. I have always liked the look of an Airstream. Was actually at an alignment shop with my FJ40 and there was the Silver Streak for sale on the bulletin board...that's how it started.

On the other hand my brother has a beautiful 1960 Pacer that he has owned for about 5 years. I think he has only camped a few days in it.
Go figure. I talked him into bringing the Pacer to the Metro Detroit rally last August, about 5 miles from his home. I slept in the Pacer, he went home and slept in his bed. I don't understand.

Mine required quite a bit of work and am in process of complete renovation. I hope like Kevin to have at the very least a silver tent with bathroom by summer.

1. What's the hardest thing so far about your restoration?

2. Did you accidentally omit "Bad Manners" from your music list? :P

3. Are you restoring your AS to original condition, or refurbishing it with a few "liberties/improvements" - and if so, why?

1. Tossup between scooting around in the dirt painting the frame and replacing rear underbelly corner skin.

2. Was not familiar with Bad Manners just listened to a couple of recordings that sounded live but were not of good quality. They did sound like they are a band to see live and probably a lot of fun. BTW, my list was no where near complete.

3. I don't consider what I am doing as a 'restore'. A renovation is is what I would call it. I will be taking many liberties, among them: changing floor plan, appliances, added grey tank, LED lighting, sound system, tank monitors, etc. Only dollars will constrain what we do. We essentially want all new modern conveniences in an old iconic classic shell.

I also have ADD. I had 5 motorcycles, but I have trimmed that down to 3. I have 2 AS, and I have agreed to sell the 31 footer, but would really like a 34 footer and a 19 ft Globetrotter. Just one is never enough for me. I guess it is a desease and I have it.

The real estate market is depressed all over. The problem is if you wait for the market to return, before you sell, it will also return where you want to buy. So you may consider selling your CA home now at a reduced price and buying a home in greenville, SC now (also at a reduced price). This way you can move and be where you want to be now. We have some nice homes and low taxes here in Lynchburg, and it is closer to Vermont than Greenville, and it is close to the mountains. I would love to have you for a neighbor also.

Dan, you do have a point that I have considered. Our house is off the market until probably spring. We have never been to Lynchburg, we are open to other locations besides Greenville, we just really liked it there.

We're in the same situation. I don't want to sell into a rising market but determining the market price at any one time is very difficult. Generally, markets are still dropping so far as I can figure it out, but everyplace is different. When markets drop, you can be behind the market and not realize it and then have to reduce the price over and over again.

We just re-listed our house and the adjoining lot and hope to sell someday soon. Although selling a house in rural Colorado in winter may be challenging, we bought it in the winter, so someone like us may realize our home's value and be willing to buy in winter. It's beautiful here and we have lots of land and have remodeled the house extensively, but we can live anywhere, so why not try somewhere else? It's time for a change (we're retired and we rarely stay in any one house more than 10 years) and we have our sights on Santa Fe.

So, 'hoot:

1. What type of house do you like best?

2. What is your least favorite thing about moving?

3. Why should someone buy your house in California?

1. By 'type' I'm thinking you mean what style. Never lived in one but have always liked craftsman/bungalow style.

2. Least favorite thing is packing. We have never used a mover but intend on it whenever the next time is.

3. Our home in California is a custom built 3/4 bedroom( office could easily become a 4th bedroom) with amazing kitchen on 2.5 acres in beautiful Shasta County. Surrounded by mountains and about 3 hours to the ocean. Lake for boating and fishing <10 minutes and ski slopes for skiing are about an hour away. Oversized 3 car garage + detached oversized 2-car garage used for my shop. We like our floor plan so well after being here 6 years we would not change a thing.

Type or style—whatever you wanted. We like Craftsman, Prairie and Arts and Crafts. #2 was easy—who likes packing? We moved ourselves last time (240 miles); probably not so much this time—10 years older. House sounds nice and I hope both of us get to sell soon.
