It's Thursday (actually Friday morning) and I like my Airstream because...we are going to Jackson Center this week end to get Deer damage repairs. Then she'll be just like the new she was at three weeks old when that d@*# deer ran into her while we were going 50 MPH!!!

It's early morning Thursday and we are hitting the road in the morning, 4 days at Big Lake (AZ). Elevation is 9200 feet and the high temp should be around 80 degrees. Thats a 30 degree drop from Phoenix.

Gracie just stuck her head in the room to let me know that I need to get off of the computer and make sure her stuff is packed. Everyone have a fun and safe weekend. Say, Goodnight Gracie!

Because she brought us to this forum where so many of you share your ideas and fixes for Airstream problems. Tonight she becomes her beautiful self again. Gypsy is plugged in (the first time in months) and cool. Our Firestorm cordless drill is charged and ready. We finally found plastic strips, got the small self-tapping 5/8's inch screws, and white screw covers, so the Grand Ceiling Re-installation shall begin!!!!!!!!!! Keep us on your good-thoughts list because I'm more than paranoid that we are gonna screw into something vital. Thanks to all of you who shared your fixes and photos for droopy ceilings. Anyway, here we go . . . on a Thursday! ~G

Yikes! Cory, hope you're doing better and that you enjoy your trip this weekend. Are you going to make it to Deming this year?

I went to a party yesterday, and I came back to the Airstream and took a shower before retiring. Just as I was stepping out of the shower, the phone rang. I went to answer it and FORGOT to shut the water off. It stayed in SEEP mode before I noticed it later today. I pressed the monitor button and it informed me that the grey water tank was very full. That explained why the contents of the trap were laying in the bottom of the shower. Hasten I did outside to pull the grey water drain. Gal-lumph! With a mighty gulp, it started dumping. I looked under the trailer and discovered that it had found a new way/place to leak from.

I like my Airstream because it keeps me from getting too complacent.

...I lived in it for the last 11 days, and am not tired of it yet. I am ready to go another 10 days if need be.
....it makes a great mobile office when underway for business.
....it keeps my Chardonnay chilled while I drive all day.

I had a great weekend of camping. The kids had fun and I got to hang with fellow Airstreamers. Like you 2Air, my fridge is on and keeping cool. Counting down to the next trip... two weeks and counting. Mystery Rally with my unit. Hope to have the dinette built by then.

This Thursday I can talk about using a ramp to raise a wheel, yes, that works, and I put a picture in my gallery. I decided to remove the backing plate and take it to Napa to see if I could get the whole thing new in a Dexter brake that I can get parts for anywhere at a Napa store in the country. I'll find out tomorrow.

I love my trailer because Airstream Forums exists to help me decide what to do when maintaining this elegant old girl.
