While bouncing around from post to post I ...

Am spending time trying to firm up ideas for rebuilding out 59 Tradewind.

I have rediscovered Airstream Dreams - ordered some stuff too:

I have rediscovered my interest in getting our AS ready to use:

I have begun to develop plans for interior cabinets and appliances.

Been fun.

This is the year.

Steve -
You're not getting much done with yer feet up
No burn days here for the past two weeks or so or I would be doing the same thing but at least I would at least wait to nightfall.

Looks to me like someone got new shoes for Christmas! Either that or they spend a LOT of time in the raised position. Ensuring every last screw and rivet is thoroughly thought through and contemplated in detail more than once is an absolute requirement for a proper restoration. However, it does look like that trailer is on the wrong side of the fence for proper reflection. Barry

Steve is just thinking about the roof of the trailer today. Tomorrow, he'll raise the fence and think about the chassis. (Yes, he has a remote control in his hand that does not show in the photo, and, yes, that's an automatic fence. Every millionaire Airstream owner should have one.)

While lurking in the Forums....I
. . . devote my undivided attention to the vast cornucopia of knowledgeable posting by the Airstream denizens. My lurks are in private and unsuspected by the rest of the family. Iím seeking openings in which I can add something of value, or a funny story. And at the rate Iím going I should earn my Rivet Master merit badge by the year 2020.

While I am lurking here I dream about warmer weather and being out in the A/S. I love looking at all of the posted pics of everyone doing just that.

Juel, I had a ford like that except it was blue. Nice car! I do however think that might be a 56.

Old Ford Photos

Jim (Cooperhawk) I am sorry but I do believe those photos
are that of a 1955 Ford Fairlane or Crown Victoria.

Have a great weekend,

Lurking...

Lurking in the forums... avoiding all work... But, what the heck, I am retired! The laundry won't go away, the floors won't clean themselves, the cat doesn't pick up anything... but the forum is so much more interesting!

While Lurking in the Forums, I...

Sip red wine ( Two Buck Chuck costs three bucks in NM),
and work on the draft Constitution and Bylaws to a WBCCI Unit that:

- Encourages travel to places of great scenic beauty, geological interest, or historical significance;
- Attracts interesting people of diverse backgrounds;
- Helps other Airstream enthusiasts select, purchase, maintain, restore, or renovate Airstream trailers of all ages;
- Has campouts unspoiled by business meetings or tedious ceremonies;
- Expecys nobody but Monica Lewinsky to wear a blue beret
