She has to help me drive don'cha know. Webster, the cat, stayed home with the bird. They have much respect for each other. Neither one are allowed to get to each other. ^..^'s
Sorry, no photos.
Wow, sounds very organized. I bet the puppys had a lots of fun traveling. It's good to have a co-pilot to keep you company whilst driving.
Glad you had a fun trip.

Petersen Museum info

This is preliminary information.....we can visit the museum as a group with the car club admission $6 Adults $4 Seniors for groups of 10 or more which includes a guided tour. They are bringing in the 1936 Airstream Clipper for the exhibit by crane and have confirmed that bringing our Airstreams really isn't possible. However, they will waive the parking fee since they cannot accommodate our Airstreams.

I will throw out a possible date---Saturday, October 25 at 2:30 pm? How does that sound? (Other times that day include 10 am, 11:30 am or 1 pm) I think there is an area where we could bring lunch and pretend we prepared a pot luck in our Airstream.......any thoughts? paula

Great research Paula, but why wait until October???? Except for that retired couple that hangs out with us, October seems like a long way from now, and isn't that close to the Fall Rally? Maybe that is the soonest they can schedule a tour?

That time period was Uwe's suggestion. It appears that he has a big renovation job that is taking his time and attention for now and I was trying to respect that. (Not that we have anything to do with trying not to distract him or anything). The Petersen is requesting a 3 week advance request and I suspect they are pretty open. (Also we are planning on taking our new trailer to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta the beginning of October and will be gone from the 1st - 15th and the Fall Rally is the 18th of October). Perhaps Uwe will weigh in here. paula

Hi all,

I don't mean to jump in to the middle of this conversation, regarding the peterson automotive museum. We are going there in about a week. Do you know if there is parking around the area that we can park the TV and AS for the afternoon?

The short answer is no. But where there is a will there is a way. Diagonally across the street is a closed up diner that has a big sign in the window that it is for rent for movies.....when I drive by there, there always seems to be room in the parking lot......don't know how you can contact people in advance...except if I can remember to get a phone number when I drive by there. We have a rental house that we are working on in the neighborhood....also, the LA County Art Museum is across the street, perhaps a call to them might find something. Many of the neighborhoods around this area have restrictive parking so it is very tough to just park on the street...also a call to the museum might help....they do have a pull in area...perhaps that would be allowed for a quick visit....anyone else have any ideas? paula

Hi Paula,

Thanks for the info. I called the meseum. As mentioned in previous post the meseum doesn't have parking for me. I talked with a gal named Mary at the meseum. She is suppose to get back to me regarding the pull thru area that you mentioned. This is turning to be alot of work, trying to find parking and a place to keep the dog for a few hours. I guess we will have to make it work.

Rod does all of my Airstream work over at C&G. (I think I spend too much time bugging him for free advice too).

I told him you said online that you had trouble. He said it was human error. He had called you today and you apologized. Sounded like you hooked your city water line to your black tank flush out instead of your fresh water.

I think we've all done something like that in our Airstream adventures!

Happy Trails!

Hi, LLB21. If that's the case, my wife and I would call it, "Having a Senior Moment".
