Who Got What - Holiday Hauls?

So.... Who go what cool or useful Airstream stuff for the holidays?

Amongst the many boxes and colorful packages, Santa delivered a cool set of WBCCI numbers to our house, mounted on a bendy magnetic plague (sticks to Argosy end cap) - he also left a note about trying to deliver a CCD - said there wasn't enough room in driveway. We're working on that......

So.... tell! What'cha get?

I got my ultra portable Cobb grill. I've been freezing my tuckus off using it out on the porch the last couple nights, because I just can't wait to go camping again!

Now I can tend a garden while Airstreaming! The Zen garden came complete with slate finish tray, polished river stones, white sand, thick-toothed rake, and a buddha head.

I got a Wireless (radio controlled) Weather Station & Atomic Alarm Clock made by Oregon Scientfic. It's silver colored as well!

It measures inside and outside temps and humidity, barometric pressure, forecasts weather up to a day in advance, shows time (from the atomic clock if you're within its range - supposedly about 1000 miles of Boulder, CO -- which we're not), day, date, year, moon phase, etc.

I have an older one that has a wired outside sensor, but it was a nuisance trying to figure the best place to run the wire to get the sensor outside the trailer. Earlier this week I made a waterproof case to keep the outside sensor in, so now all I need to do is think of the best place to mount it when we're camping. IDEAS anybody??

I'm thinking of mounting the inside unit on the wall over the dinette to replace the clock that came with the trailer, or perhaps to mount it just above the heat pump/air conditioner thermostat, which is on that same wall.

In my opinion, this type of weather station would be a nice feature for the Airstream factory to offer already installed in new trailers, either as standard equipment, or as an option.

LOL Stef. I can just see you out there staying in practice with that Cobb... Pretty funny. I feel for you!

I got the Airstream postcards and Douglas Keister's "Silver Palaces" book which, by the way, is excellent. I couldn't put it down before reading it cover to cover. Enthralling. Amazon Link to Keister's Book. It might be my favorite gift...

I've gotten Airstream replicas before and was never that impressed. This year I got one of these and have to admit that it is pretty neat and well done. There are tiny state map stickers on the inside of the door and even a screen. The roof lifts off to reveal the interior. I believe it to be a '56 Ohio Bubble.

How cold is the Beer?

I put my outside sensor (transmitter) in the refrigerator - way more concerned about how cold the beer is staying rather than how many layers of clothing I have to put on.......it's a lot easier to grab another jacket rather than make a run into town for more ice.

The Dometic on the 345 is way sensitive to being level, so I find the "instant" continuous readout of the interior temp invaluable.

Santa felt our first Airstream Christmas was pretty important. We were blessed with lots of great items. A great sweatshirt material Blanket that has not gone a day without use, A wonderful handblown ornament (5-6" long) of a '38. A new Airstream workshirt, two airstream ball caps, a great new handheld cordless vac.

I'm sure I'm missing more, but those are some of the highlights.

I think Kimber and I both are thankful, most of all, for a healthy extended family that has the opportunity to share it's love during the holidays. We wish everyone Happy Holidays and hope that everyone you love is happy and healthy!

John, et al,

I bought a wireless unit on eBay a while back for $9.99 plus shipping (see pic below). The base removes for wall mounting. The unit doesn't provide barometric pressure (I wish it did) but I was looking for something small and diminutive for the CCD interior. It fit the bill in price and size.

The outdoor wireless "sender" got mounted under the front CCD window rock guard with Super Lock heavy duty hook and loop that I got at Radio Shack (Link to Super Lock hook and loop at Radio Shack). The indoor "receiver" mounted on the right of the door with the same hook and loop. Looks great and is removeable.

After about 8,000 miles and 5 months, the setup works flawlessly and continues to provide us with accurate temperature and time (high/low - both inside and outside, etc.). During a recent 2 week outing, it was very helpful in monitoring outside temps for night-time lows so we could take precautionary action against a freeze-up. I agree, A/S should put something like this into their units.

Thanks for the tip about the Super Lock from Radio Shack. Good Idea! I made a small mounting base from plywood for my outside sensor, in addition to the waterproof cover for it that I mentioned, and I bet I could use Super Lock, or some velcro that I already have, to mount it somewhere outside the trailer.

You can also get additional sensors for the unit I have, and it will monitor up to 3 sensors in different places. So...maybe one in the refrigerator for the beer isn't a bad idea as well --only thing is that alcohol doesn't sit too well in my poor old stomach these days...darn!

Santa was good to me too!

I got a Garmin iQue 3600 Palm-based PDA with GPS (WAAS enabled)......also 1 Gig SD card to put the whole USA map on. Should never get lost or miss a turn with this unit! It gives voice and written navigation prompts before turns come up. Should never go down any dead-end streets towing my AS using this! Maybe even try some Geocaching too!

his and hers Hondas

Santa brought us matching Honda EU 2000 generators with a parallel kit. Just put oil in them and cranked them up..... Still can not believe how quiet they are. I had to turn down the radio in the shop to hear them.

As for GPS I got the Garmin Etrex Vista Color and the US topo map set for the National Parks East... Come on spring
