Well, thanks for keeping us running up here.

I am sure you had you share of work there. A while back I was deeply interested in nuclear power when I noticed that most of the plant around here were built in the late 50's early 60's. I think one was build in the 70's or 80's.

What I found interesting, back when the NRC posted status and such (pre 9/11) that reactors do have a finite life and that most of the reactors I saw around here were either at or beyond their design life.

Understanding that it takes several, several years to build such plants, things like the closing of Zion made me wonder about how much longer they can safely run these plants without doing the major costly overhauls (that they opted not to do at Zion).

Anyway, sorry to all for being off topic, nuclear energy is really one of the things I find very interesting.

Eric

Ominous Hum ???

To Toaster: The hum is not ominous, but as clean and efficient a way to power a 'toaster' as it gets.

Silvertwinkie: I know itch. You waannnna talk hitch itch, we'll talk hitch itch. And my bud Rubyslipper knows it too. They recently got their first AS, and are stuck in MO working too hard to enjoy it.
The Tennessee rally is at a lovely park on the river, with VERY nice restrooms, so you don't need your head. And I am putting a new porcelain head in mine tonight!!!

Silvercloud: If your tongue wasn't in your cheek, I'd love to know more about all these little icons, signatures, etc. New to this sort of thing.

The Camo rig is different, alright. I appreciate the positive feedback. We dance to a different tune. Heck, all you aluminites do. I don't do computer tech very well, and will have to study this picture transfer thing. I'll get a coach.

I caulked the two narrow pieces of trim that parallel the wide blue strip. It looked like never was caulked. DID I MESS up that, too? Seems after tightening 4 feet of top strip with the black molding, where I THINK a leak was coming into bath, that I should caulk all the trim strips. And around tail lights, windows... Oh man, a daunting task.

Last question: Could we hug our buggy too often, and get alzheimers (likely an aluminum induced disorder), or would we have to lick it to injest the awful stuff???

Can't wait to meet some fellow streamers, May 16th at Chester Frost Park, near Chattanooga. Interested? Call me at 423-843-7454. John Talbot

OH MY!

Heh, heh, heh.... I couldn't stop laughing! It's so cool, and cute at the same time.... all you need is a vintage jeep to complete the set!
A+ for orginality and execution!

Which, of course, makes me wonder. Our campsite is in the forest. A zebra or tiger print would be pretty cool to our kids...... what did you use to paint it, and how did you get the pattern?

Very nice. I know a few hunters that would just love it.

Camo Trailer

Nice photo.
I see the trees and bushes, but where is
the trailer? Is your tow vehicle hunter orange so you can find it in the campground?

Thumbs up

Nicely done! I was thinking it would be the normal drab camo but this looks slick! It appears to be somewhat transparent, I can see the glimmer of the aluminum skin through it, reminds me of a G.I. Joe lunchbox I once had.

I guess for the Zebra one I should have used a Safari, THEN it would have looked more realistic

ARRGGHH!

But really, that zebra one is REALLY cool!! I'll talk to the wife about the idea.

I guess Wally B. won't be turning over in his grave ! I couldn't tell that the first one is a fake. HHmmmm, makes me wonder, is nuclear energy fake too? Just kidding!

Hope you guys don't glow at night!
Great laughs!
Marc
