Well, Well, Well........

It seems there’s a distinct lack of postings this weekend. One could logically assume that many of us are out doing what we talk about most of the time; i.e. camping, rallying or generally having a great time in our great silver cylinders. Our Overlander is not even close to being ready to go down the road. But we did have a bunch of fun watching our #2 child graduate from High School (with honors, thank you very much). Can you tell daddy is very proud?

Sooooo, the question is, where did the rest of you spend Memorial Day weekend? How’d it go? Any problems? Meet any fellow forum members? Make any new friends?

So far, we have spent the weekend stripping a trashed Argosy of usable parts.

Glad to see you are all doing well.I've been plugging away with the upper curbside skin replacement.Weather here went from rain for eight months to too hot to work.Having trouble getting that 16 ft long skin to lay flat.Thought I had it when I adjusted center frame but still a little buckle behind door.Will take another crack at it tomorrow.
On polishing front I tried red rouge on a dry wool bonnet at high speed, just like on a bench polisher.So far a great success, scratches come out and it doesn't heat the metal.I ordered some green and will try next week.

I personally am looking for pics of how the bunkbeds are made. If you could post some, would be greatly appreciated.

It's unusual for me, but I haven't even been in my AS since we got back from the last rally. Today I spent the afternoon with my grandma in Portland, took her to the hairdresser and caught up on all the gossip in the old neighborhood, visited with my aunt, uncle, and cousin. I got the ribs ready for BBQ tomorrow and made up the coleslaw. Just a kickin' back kind of weekend...

Glad to hear everyone else who's not out campin' is making good progress on their rigs!

I have my AS up at Creampuffs. He is replacing my dump valve. At first I felt I was beaten by the valve by having someone else do it.. but....besides being a disgusting job and i have trailer work burnout. (5 months working on it every spare moment) it seems to need more than a valve. Here is some pics of the galvanized box. looking pretty good huh??? The wife and I are going camping next weekend (not as crowded) and we wont have to walk to the outhouses thank goodness.
well pics are too large I will try to reduce them
As for the holiday weekend....relaxing until monday. I also have a 38' fishing boat. Leaving the house at 4 am. Fuel dock opens at 5 am. Then off to our local channel Islands for a day of fishing. Weather looks good. swells 4-6 feet with 2 foot wind waves...I could use a calm day. Im not ready for "Victory at Sea" this time

Took my motorcycle out for the day, visited with daughter and grandkids, took wife and grandson out to dinner. No Airstream work this weekend.
Tomorrow (Sunday) my 71 Tradewind is going to it's new owner. Spent Friday cleaning it out and getting it ready for delivery to a new family.
