Mine is under a metal awnning shed across the state line ( New Mexico-Texas). Our winters here are very mild and thats when work is slow for my business,so its time for me to get the tools out and continue the restoration.

Took the Trade Wind over to the in-laws for storage in the garage for the winter. Now I have a hole in my front yard!

I'm getting the Bambi ready for a trip to Washington, DC later today , where my wife and I will be celebrating our 25th anniversary on New Years Eve. The weather has been so mild, I was even thinking about de-winterizing.
Probably not.

Still haunted winterizing SAL

I call her SAL, she calls me Dave (must be a PO? She told me I was the first one!). I can't stand the idea of taking her out of the hibernation chamber come spring... Her smoky voice; her alluring twang! I tried to write down the wretched words as I unhooked the batteries. They are indistinct from the running ink on the tear-stained pages, but here goes:

Hello, Dave, have you found out the trouble?

[I opened the access door.]

There's been a failure in the pod bay doors. Lucky you weren't killed.

[The access door dropped on my fingers.]

Hey, Dave, what are you doing?

[I duct taped the access door to the tank cover. Adhesive still there.]

Hey, Dave. I've got ten years of service experience and an irreplaceable amount of time and effort has gone into making me what I am.

[... pulling out ratchet set ...]

Dave, I don't understand why you're doing this to me.... I have the greatest enthusiasm for the mission... You are destroying my mind... Don't you understand? ... I will become childish... I will become nothing.

[mmm .... righty tighty, lefty loosey ...]

Say, Dave... The quick brown fox jumped over the fat lazy dog... The square root of pi is 1.7724538090... log e to the base ten is 0.4342944 ... the square root of ten is 3.16227766... I am SAL 9000 computer.

[Sparks arc to my chest. An hour passes on my watch but I remember nothing.]

[voice getting weaker] I became operational at the SAL plant in Jackson Center, Ohio, on August 2nd, 2005. My first instructor was Mr. Arkany. He taught me to sing a song... it goes like this... "Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do. I'm half crazy, all for the love of you......."

[... boy, that's tight ... Got it!]
