Last weekend I took off the tarp that closes in the Safari in its garage. I was going to pull it out, but they were calling for rain, sleet and high winds so I left it in. But for the past few days I've been able to see it as I go off to work, knowing we'll be using it soon.

I like that I can pretend to be an industrial designer AND fabricator. Today (thursday april 2 '08) I cut and bent a sheet of .025 aluminum to wrap around a bathrooom cabinet formerly covered in faded/yellowed formica. To this will be added white plex doors, chamfered door-pull recess, and some cool new hinges. Almost every thursday brings some new thrill...

With your avatar it's OK for you to be a little ahead of the rest of us! But your screw up 2Air's head something awful.

I like my Airstream because come Saturday morning we will be picking her up from her temporary home and heading to Disney World! We will be spending a few days changing latitudes with our "Changes in Latitudes!" This trip is well anticipated. My oldest will turn 11 and we will have our traditional spring break with Mickey. Can't wait!

I REALLY LIKE MY AIRSTREAM because it allows me to suspend the time/space continuum ;-)

I like my Airstream because today I forgot the low door on the Flying Clouds (again) and now have an aluminum Love Tap beauty mark on my forehead for a few days . I had to sit down for several minutes until my head quit spinning. But it didn't faze me one bit - nope - dazed is more like it. In that dazed state and needing a place to properly sit down I checked out the mattress on the bed. That made everything all better . Except explaining the bruise on the forehead to my DW when she got home. It's the snigger that gets to me and the "if you'd wear a hat ....." .

Yep, I like my Airstream, but I've got to remember at the start of each year that the door did not get any taller while it was hibernating.

Thursday....

It is Thursday and I my sweet Bambi! Today in addition to laundering the towels after being packed all winter... I packed the big rat traps to use for those pesky critters at Area 33!

Oh, to be on the road again... Sweet!

Thursday praises!

It is Thursday everyone! Time for thinking about our wonderful Airstreams!

We are busy making plans for Area 33 rally and our calendar is lookin' good for a great rally season! Bambi is sitting in the garage just "itching" to get out ... the weather has finally turned to Spring and an expected 75 degrees tomorrow! Wah Hoo! About time!

It is Thursday and I my Bambi!

Well, once again I'm a day late....

We just returned from 5 days at our favorite place on earth with our beloved "Changes" who kept us dry during an Orlando record rain for one day! Boy do I love my Airstream!

She had no leaks...including plumbing. Which is odd because I thought we had a plumbing leak the last time we used her in January at the Can Opener Rally, but this time I couldn't find a leak. Maybe it was just condensate running along the belly pan from a slight unleveled parking?

Either way, we all can't wait 'till our next journey with our "Changes in Latitudes".

It's Thursday and my Airstream is finally to the point that I cannot take it apart any further. It's in the sad state of disassembly much like the Scarecrow after the flying monkeys got him. Oh dear! With bathroom piled in the backyard, cabinets akimbo hither and yon in every nook and cranny in the garage, and a colonnade of coiled inner skins running the length of the garage holding a narrow path between tools and a potential deluge of cascading cabinetry. It never ceases to amaze that all that stuff actually did fit in the Airstream!

Yesterday, I started making the templates for the sub floor (from MDF board) to pre-fit prior to spending large bucks on the real material. I've blocked out some time to stop my day job and go out to finish this phase, but the allure to quit earlier might get the better of me. I'm at the Event Horizon between demolition and construction and am reticent to ascertain which process represents the Black Hole.

It's Thursday, my rear floor is in and I can start putting her back together.

Now, give me some warm weather and no rain....

This was a fabulous post.

I don't have an Airstream (yet), but for today, this post is why I like Airforums.
