Ours is outside in the driveway, packed and ready to hit the road at a moments notice. We have 5 acres, so storage isn't an issue. There are a few more trips before planned before winterization, like to Washington DC over Thanksgiving. But if the weather is right on any weekend before that, we're outta here.

Ours has been back at the storage facility for about 2.5 hours, after spending the past week-end at Laguna Seca Raceway, in Monterey, CA. We hope to soon bring our Airstream home to live....the cement is to be poured next week-end. I think both of us (me and the Airstream) will be much happier when I can stop by to visit whenever I wish....

Our Silverhilton II recently checked in to the executive suite for her winter residence. A full 560 sq ft to assure her complete privacy, with a 16' high ceiling, tastefully appointed cement block and aluminum walls and cement floor.

She was pampered and tucked in for the night (actually for many nights) by the staff, and we've been assured that all her needs will be attended to until we reunite early next spring.

Did I say all her needs? Well, yes, except there will be no Belgian chocolate on the bed pillow each night as she is trying to stay fit over the winter.

My Airstream...well mine is only in my dreams at this point! We own SOB at present, sadly to say. I am dreaming of the day when I can have my own. Until then, they say anticipation is the best part!

All dispersed

Well, the 58 Sovereign of the Road had all of its interior removed (carefully removed - not gutted), and it made a trip along with a 46 Vagabond from here in central NY to Plattsburgh where it met up with 12 other Airstreams at Colin's shop - GSM Vehicles to begin it's getting a new floor, neww veins, new insulation, and new flooring plus Zolatone. The 65 Caravel remains outside missing it's older brother. The 67 Trade Wind is at Aquia Pines Campground in Stafford, VA, where I will visit this Tuesday for a 3 weeks while I do my USMC Reserves - the Trade Wind currently is my home away from home until the SOTR of the completed.

After replacing the A/C unit with a CarrierV w/heat pump and throwing the old water heater out for one of those new fang remote fired units. Replaced the vent seals and, re-caulk all around the top's skylights, etc on the topside. (BTW, the checkout was during a weekend long downpour of 7 in of rain with nary a drop of water to be found inside.) It's been winterized and, on location in Sandbridge, Va. Ready to be used at a moments notice during the winter.

Well it is a sad thing - when the antifeeze and tarps come out! - Don't panic the tarp is for the boat

We did some driveway shuffle and got them all in for the winter. So the SS Lighthouse (Overlander) is tucked in beside MoonBeam - but I have some Parboning to do at the front - we still have a leak somewhere as the floor in the front is getting wet - no biggy as the floor comes out in the spring - all dry rot in the front and door.

MoonBeam is primed for the freeze - but today I have to empty her and put her goods close to the basement exit - ready for the Winter Trip.

"Ella" the doner organ.....trailer has the nicest spot at the moment - but close to the garage and tools - if there is a tolerable sunny day the heater may come out and more of her inards will be stripped ready for the big operation in the Spring.

Our boat funnily enough - Airstream blue has not been named - always wanted "My Knotty Girls" but never got around to christening her. Even the landscape trailer has it's spot that will between Ella and the boat. Leaving lots of room for me to snowblow the driveway when that white rain comes.

Projecting lots of snow this coming month.

Would love to have covered storage - but that is planed for next summer - when the new Hybrid is finished she will sport a new covered structure. Solid roof with roll down canvas tarps for the side walls for the winter to keep the snow out.

Did not get much done on the trailers - worked on lots of little honey-do-list items with the Globe Trotter - but still lots more little things for warmer weather. This fall got eaten up with a sun room addition - that is just about to dawn the posts, beams, roof and windows - finished the hole digging, basement walls and floor, insulation and backfill.

...and to think I am seriously thinking about buying this "vintage" Houseboat that has steel pontoons - lots of potential - and just like a trailer but of course it floats. Our solution to not being able to park our trailer at the waterfront lot - so we will park a houseboat instead.

Waiting anxiously...

for me to return and get the rest of the interior work done so we can get at least one trip in this year...not that it has made one yet

Actually it is sitting in behind my house in NC still in a state of dissassembly or should that be reassembly misassembly I am supposed to be closer to home by December so maybe work will proceed at a faster rate.

I do the same with Bacardi...

Also, Goliath is currently parked in our driveway, as the storage place has been under water for a couple of days. If the Code Nazis don't like it, I will tell them to pound sand.:-)

Aaron, I think you actually have to be close enough to make physical contact with it, in order for progress to be made.

Ours is inside a garage with the boat. Both would love to see one more run this season, but if either do, it will be the Safari for a short weekend close by.

If not, in the next few weeks, I'll bring my compressor, blow out the lines, and add antifreeze to it. From there it will sit inside for about 4-5 months, as the feet of snow pile up outside, melt, and the temp gets above 32 degrees regularly.

A shot of the Sovereign on it's trip North

Here is a shot from Saturday night (left at 9pm, got to Colin's at 3am) where we were checking lugs on the newly made rims (we had to convert Ford rims to replace the old Split rims) on the Vagabond. Two other photos of our (Colin and I went in on it as a joint project) Vagabond. It was a trip! Sorry for the quality as it is from my TREO 600.

Mine's out in the back yard. Put in a new Thetford Bravura (?spelling) toilet yesterday. The plywood was in excellent condition, thankfully, and it got a coat of Minwax wood hardener, which is similar to Ban Rot.
