Sometimes the "learning curve" in life is a little steep, but with persistence, one can indeed prevail!!!

Happy traveling! Zigi
So glad you had a good maiden voyage with Brutus (we won't talk about the Buckeye portion of the name ) Hope you have many happy years with him!

Thumbs up

Hi Wolverine,
I graduated so many years ago and have long ago learned that college sports are just fun----and should not be misconstrued as an alter ego trip.
I grew up with Woody and the Buckeyes. Woody always referred to "that school up north" and would never use the name Michigan. To be honest I root for Michigan except in one game!!!!! I hope the football program turns around quickly. There is too much legacy and pride at stake.
Now back to Airstreams......gotta love these things. I can't believe the quality and engineering in the new ones, and the incredible renovations I have seen with the vintage classes. There is a lot of talent and experience on this forum. Still fun to learn from others after all these years.....Zigi

So true! These boards have been wildly helpful to me and my hubby as we were total newbies.

Also true that rivalries are just for fun I have many good friends with Ohio State ties. We haven't had much to cheer about lately in Wolverine country in November. Rivalry games are much more fun with good natured razzing when both teams have an equal chance to win. Lately we have been owned by 'that school in the south'.

It's Thursday and we love our airstream because it's day 3 after taking posession in Northern Pa of our first AS - '06 classic 31- and she is slipping through the air so nicely on our way back to Fla that we both look like the Chesire cat in Alice in Wonderland.

It's Thursday and I love my airstream in one piece. I am delighted to have made it though the storms unscathed!

It's Thursday and we just returned from a 4 day camp out at Kerrville City Park where we spent 3 days at the Easter Hill Country Bicycle Tour. Rode 100 miles in 3 days. Now planning our next trip.

It's Thursday, and I love my Airstream because we are leaving tomorrow on our first trip of the season! It will be a wonderful, relaxing long weekend with good friends.

Isn't that what it's all about?

Happy camping, everyone!

It's Thursday and I love my airstream because we're headed to Titusville with friends to watch the next to the last Shuttle launch. Success is knowing when to stop and play.

Yay, first road trip of the year. Off to Omahaha for four days in the Overlander. Wheels up in about 15 minutes, y'all.

It's Thursday, and we are loading up and testing things. We leave for Montana tomorrow morning. Fishing, relaxing, camping and enjoying our first "retirement" trip. Hopefully we will have many more.

The floor covering, magazine rack and new shelves in the bathroom are done. Headed west to the trees yay! Iron City Campground on Friday if there is an open spot. Don't generally like campgrounds but this one is an exception. Couple of days of much needed R&R. Wheels turning in 5 hours.
