When it didn't improve by tightening I decided to remove it and use some sealent - only to have it sheer off and have six gallons of water spilling onto the floor!

I sourced my second AS from a family in Totowa NJ. It was part of the estate of a life member, #13194 Albert W Vanderberg. More than once I've been grateful for his preparedness and thoughtfulness from beyond the grave. His spares box is a treasure chest and, sure enough, looking in the box I find a spare plug! The water's hot and all is back on track!

Thanks Albert!!
Sounds like Albert was a good Airstreamer...and a good Boy Scout, too. "Always be prepared".

Fortunately there was no sand damage. We really felt sorry for the three guys on motorcycles in front of us. We knew those guys were suffering.

Barry, You were truly missed. Did you get a hangover from all the toasts in your honor? I'm crossing my fingers you'll be able to get to Deadhorse 2.

Goin - I had a twinge of a long distance hang over. We certainly appreciate the sacrifice that was made on our part as others woke with a lot more than a twinge of New Years welcoming. You guys are real troopers.

I'm still trying to find out what traveling I'm allowed to do this spring and summer. Then of course I have to convince the real love of my life that she's up to the distance driving and promise that this time for sure no matter what I'll keep my coaching to myself . I'll probably even have to promise to not jump out of the truck and kiss the ground at every stop. Darn, I'll miss that.

I hope to know what I can expect by mid January with regard to travel this year. Egad, it's already the 3rd.

Ride on....

Barry

It's Thursday and I like my Airstream because my wife and I like to travel and camp. We have, until now, traveled in a Previa Van and slept in tents from minus 17 degrees in Wyoming to 110 degrees in South Texas. Tent camping has, however, after 20 years, lost some of its appeal, particulary for espousa. I will still tent camp, I like waking up to the sounds, smells of early moring and the feel of having a micro layer between me and outside. However, I am not too crazy about the loading and unloading of everthing needed to tent camp. I like my Airstream because it stays loaded and ready to go with most all things but the perishables.

Barry,

Think positive thoughts about Deadhorse.

Would it help if I sent your bride a gag to use on you?

and I love my little Airstream! It is a new year with a whole calendar soon to be filled with rallies! Life is good.

Now if the current $100 a barrel for oil will only go down....

It's Thursday and I love my airstream because even though it isn't ready for the road YET, it is my sanctuary and promise of good times to come.

It is (was) Thursday and I like my Airstream because she lived up to her name (Changes in Latitudes) and took us to the Can Opener Rally in the Florida Panhandle this past weekend where we reconnected with old friends and met new ones. She helped us host a really great cocktail party that overflowed into the streets. It was a great rally and we are looking forward to the next Can Opener next year!

It is Friday and I forgot to post yesterday! 2Air, do I get detention for being tardy?

Even though we haven't been out in the Bambi for a while, [too much snow on the road this past while...] we love her! Just because....

Those are great pics 2Air! Especially the alligator sign.... I think I will take my chances with the pesky neighbor dog...

Kudos to KU for 7th place BCS ranking in football.....

Well the name says it all........a Kansas team (albeit my alma mater nemisis) takes 7th place in BCS standings........congrats to a non-ranked team before the season started! It's better than a Nebraska or Oklahoma or Notre Dame or VA Tech getting the win.....altho I applaud the recovery from the disaster that Va Tech suffered thru in May 07' on campus.

Maybe next year for the Cats!

On the Thursday, I like my AS because......... last Thursday I hooked up and attended my first Bluegrass Festival in Portland, OR.........and got stoked because I saw my hero mandolin player David Grisman and his quintet perform ........truly awesome................esp if your'e a Dead Head. Sooo.....I'm waiting for the next outing to the FCU 2nd annual peeps event.....can't wait til Kevbo parks me!

It's Thursday and I really like my Airstream today because I spent an hour just sitting in it and winding down after a particularly stressful morning. It was the first place I could think of where I could just go, sit down, and watershed everything for a while. No phone, no computer, just some soft music on the radio, a 1950 Post magazine, and a mug of tea.
