What an exciting and emotional time for all of you. Hopefully once I get my driving abilities back we can make some of the other campout's around WA/OR in the next year other than just the TCT one close to home. For now with my wife doing the driving chores she's being cautious about how far she tows. It will take her a while longer before she's comfortable going more than a couple of hours, and we both have fingers and toes crossed that I'll be back in the drivers seat in relatively short order.

terry - It's a 24 - they figured it out and updated the auction - but we measured and the vin bears out the 24 lable. Also - it says Argosy 24 on the outside....

Barry - we've got our digits crossed as well. Keep up the good work!

Janet,
Thanks for the advise on the closet flange for my '75 Argosy 26. Was very helpful. Have new parts ordered and toilet FINALLY made it here. Just have to rebuild the platform for the toilet and get it ready for the new SeaLand Traveler Lite 111. Good Luck with your new project! Thanks again!

The most important "spotting feature".
Are you going to replace the Exploder as a tow vehicle? I towed Rich Luhr's Argosy 24 with a mid-90's V-8 powered Dakota with no trouble. Got 11 mpg towing, and 17 MT.

11 mpg? Bletch! Yes - eventually the Exploder will "age out of the system" in the meantime it gets towed with the PU. (2500HD Allison/Duramax diesel) That seems to work fine...

That is better than current with our van- 10 towing, 10 MT, 10 in town, 10 on the highway...

Janet and the Cat

Janet has found her new calling, or new play toy.
Here she is working to level spot for the pad which will
hold her latest toy.

She actually looks like she knows what she's doing! Did you make a call before you dug? Wouldn't want to hit any gas lines! I guess you guys are serious about this........building a home and all for your "baby"!
Did you make a decision on the sink? How about the paint color?.........I think a pearlescent body with maroon bottom and mid-stripe would look good.
Can't wait to see it..........will you bring it to BB?

Janet has decided that the sink will be like the one in your CCD.
We are still throwing around colors but we agree it will have a pearlescent clear coat. I like the idea of a maroon accents. Unfortuanatly we are still 1 to 2 years out on the comming out party. We will be sending Eric off to the University of Idaho, Moscow in two weeks. Lots of big bucks for that. Pay as you go, but we will get there. I find pleasure in the journey, and the destination should be a blast also.

Gee - thanx for the vote of confidence!
I have however, not always been the refined speciman you meet at rallies.... I grew up on a farm and drove tractors, mucked stalls, cleaned hoofs and lugged hay bales - heck, I even fished dead critters out of the well and learned to pickle okra (for the truely brave).

That bobcat is fun - problem is every time I go to push in the clutch - the bucket raises.....

Our pasts

Hi Janet, I have to tell a little story on Claudia. She also grew up on a farm. She learned to drive on an old Fordson tractor. If you ever get to drive with her today you may be able to tell. You know, you can take the girl out of the farm, but you can't take the farm out of the girl. And for one I am sure glad! Several years ago I got to drive a small Cat to put in a dirt road. It was great fun. Sense I have had this fantasy of having a great deal of property. And I could spend the whole day just making roads, holes, mounds of dirt etc. I always did like the sand box as a kid. Someone also said that we always go back.
Don

I've also noticed when you lift the bucket, the Bobcat lurches into motion--very disorienting.
