Camping, Camping and More Camping

We just returned from the WBCCI rally in Perry, GA. Had a great time. Now it's time to do some laundry, go to work for one day then back to more camping. So it's Thursday and we like our Airstream because we will be camping again tomorrow.

Dead Batteries

Yeah, I know all about what causes batteries to go bad...the problem is that Colonial let this brand new unit go with me off the lot with batteries that sat for 21 months without any regard for their care and nurturing. I also didn't tell you that even though I bet every owner in the last five years has told their dealer that the shower door leaks water at the bottom...this dealer didn't bother caulking the bottom rail. I did it myself, and it stopped! Imagine that. You know, sometimes I wonder what these techs do at the dealers when they aren't sitting around and playing cards. I made a specific request before delivery that they do a "load" test on the batteries...since I had a sneaking suspicion they were sitting for a long period of time. They assured me they had performed that test, and all was good. I live 10 hours from their dealership. I'm fairly certain they didn't ever expect to see me again. Have a Great Day, and Thanks for the interest. I't all good...God Bless the children and idiots !

It's Thursday and I just Love My Airstream! I compounded the door in door
and we changed our Forum Name to reflect our new to us in March of this year GT1963 - Thanks CanoeStream

Found out at the Factory Tour that the 1963 models are a very special year - as they were made in 1962 production year - the last year under Wally Byam's watchful eye. So the LadyBug is real special lady. ......

among great company here at the Airforums....

A good Thursday

Sharon, here's something to remember your day by -- looks like it was in the very last minute of that username's life too! I recall your threads on the purchase and pulling LadyBug back home. Always willing to help!

yay i finally remembered!

it's thursday and i love my airstream because... ( because... )

2 years ago today (or yesterday?) robert hauled her in from houston, a great eBay AS. we started gutting to make *ours*. going full time, we thought. then a month later i was in the hospital in septic shock and in the next 6 weeks died a few times and life changed forever. (sorry but this goes with the it's thursday )

we have never eaten inside, slept in it, had it out of the driveway. never went inside for over a year. and it seemed like life was over and that at way too young i wouldn't be able to really get way. (wah wah wah ... don't cry for me argentina... really, i sure don't!)

a few months ago we went out and started ripping ruthlessly and continuing on at least a part of our quest. we are going to finish up desecrating our AS (not vintage but *us*) and then be able to keep it at our camping resort we have not used in 18 years, wonderful tho it is. it isn't like traveling but WAY better than nothing! we had to trade off our big truck for an HHR that gets way better mileage. when we go over, LVL will spot it at the site we choose for us, then take it back to lot when we leave. that is $15 and storage is $20/mo.

so, i love my airstream because it has given us back a hope for getting out away from everything we want and/or need to get away from and enjoy our baby.

happy 2nd birthday to our no-name AS. i love you because you hold a sunny tomorrow in my heart.

now if only we could tow her back to washington where i grew up. *sigh*

e

(really sorry this came off so corny. and btw, don't feel sorry in any of this. God always helps us grow in all things, i'm grateful)

AND STILL NUTS!

( a med i'm taking right now makes me higher than a kite sometimes so i am absolved of responsibility for the gaggy type stuff here)

...I like my Airstream because last week she took us to Ft. Wilderness to celebrate the 4th at our happy place: Walt Disney World. Despite the daily Florida thunderstorms, we had a great time and she kept us dry and cozy. We are working on a trip for mid-August and the next trip will be a trip to the beach for Labor Day. Until then I like my Airstream because...

...Last week for my birthday My Airstream took me on a 1600 mile boondocking trip through Calif. and into Oregon and back to Ca. and then to Nev. before coming home.

All systems performed flawlessly and she towed like a dream. She also offroaded like a champ.

I'm ready to go again.
