Nice yarn Vernon! I'll be keeping up with you. Looks like we'll be a bout a day behind you across Colorado. Maybe catch you on the return leg if you swing down to central Texas. Have a great trip!

Good to hear from ya'

Right now the pin is in Beaver OK, I saw some stuff about Sand Dunes there, I packed my ice chest, umbrella and swim suit...

We have a really bad case of travel-A.D.D. , tending to end up several states away from our 1st thoughts...

And we are open to suggestion!

A place called Big Mineral Resort & Campground.

I'm not sure I'm going to be able to go yet, but it's close to home so I hope to make it. It's the Heart of Texas Camping Unit, and we're a welcoming unit, so drop by and meet some real characters.

Oh, I thought you were lookin at the White stick pin, not the Yellow one just north of Dallas...

Hummm...I was looking for a good campground in that area for Friday night...I wonder if Big Mineral would have a spare spot for a wandering traveler?

That's OK, I was interested in the White one. I lived in Guymon for a while and then in the Texas panhandle, so I was interested. More over on the west side though.

They have 100 sites, HoTCU won't fill it even if we all show.

Thoughts or rationale for having metal valve stems? Less likely to leak...etc?

Less likely to leak or break off. The rubber ones have been known to blow out of the hole at high pressures or break.

2reasons,
1) with the weight of a pressure sensor hanging on the end of the valve stem, I didn't want the stem to Bend over at speed and flex the stem, and
2) they look cool.

I've had them installed for 25,000 miles ( on the same tires) and have had no issues.

Hey Vernon,
I was reading your thread here, and noticed you'd semi-polished the top of your Stream. How's it holding up? How much maintenance have you had to do to it to keep it looking good?

The LoveStream has the same Airstream Pettern Baldness, and I'm not looking for shiney, just a nice even bright/semi brushed aluminum look... close to what the fresh stripped areas look like. Was just wondering how it holds up without a clear coat over it.
