we may meander over before the film. i think david's going to bring "RV", an outdoor projector and screen (nothing like a trailer-in movie). bring your own chairs and popcorn!



ha!

man ,,, we love that movie....no tux is required, but suggested:

I hope to be there by 7 on Friday. Defrosted the chicken last night to fry for Saturday night's dinner. 2 days and counting!

If it's not one thing it's another....

Ok - I'm leaving in the morning. No problems with the axle. Brakes work great. Will stop in 100 miles to check lug nuts on the new rims.

BUT, hooked up today and the running lights failed to work. Blew the fuse in my truck. Come on but very dim then the fuse blows in about 2 minutes. Brake lights and turn signal lights work great. I have a wire bundle that runs external to the underbelly skin that I know is the guilty party. I will bring my multimeter and have a work day on Friday as I will be getting there on Thursday. I hate this - I must of pulled on it a little and yanked a connection in the underbelly. The PO ran this I guess when he had problems with the wiring. Have to make it in the DAYLIGHT or I will have to pull over.

OK back to packing - SO MUCH STUFF.......

My wife, and now two dogs, are getting excited about camping. I plan to bring my 12 string guitar, but haven't played much lately, and am timid anyway; hoping to get to play sometime though.

We are looking forward to seeing some other Airstreams of various years. We want to buy a newer one for more confident traveling, but need to know more about what to look for, and what to avoid. Some years were known as tail-saggers, and some were known as clear-coat peelers. Curious to get input/feedback from others, and see some at the Georgia Fall Leaf Thing.

See you (y'all, if I can avoid my Illinois roots) Friday afternoon.

Wow, its great to see a few Tradewinds will be at the rally. I'm also looking forward to comparing notes. Clancy Boy, I pray that you and everyone else gets there safely.
The TW and truck is packed, fridge is on, the truck parked right under the coupler and ready to hitch Friday. I'm just finishing some last minute stuff. Yeah, Clancy I agree . . . . SO MUCH STUFF.

Getting psyched! Just back from Boston, tomorrow some food shopping, packing. I'm going to try to depart Marietta around noonish on Friday - arriving around 3ish I guess. My wife will come up separately after picking up our son at school.

This is so cool.

Got in my truck to go to work this a.m.at 6:30 and it had no interior lights, the odometer and speedo were off too. Last time this happened it was low on trans fluid and when this level was brought back up it was all fine again.
Its like its in a 'limp home" or emergency mode? Not sure what's going on, but if it is not able to be straightened out today after work, we may have to drive up in the car and stay nearby. Talk about depressing!
anyone have a clue on this? I posted in the F250 Thread also.

Check your fuses if you haven't already done so. You may not have tail lights either.

The dash and tail lights are on the same fuse on some vehicles so that if the fuse goes and you have no tail lights (when the head lights are on) you will have an indication that something is awry. Otherwise you might not know the tail lights aren't working until someone rear ends you at night. This might not be your problem though, but it is a cheap place to start. I haven't had this problem in over 30 years but I did when installing a CB radio back in the 70's when I broke a fuse and thought it only controled the dash board lights. I found out when I was stopped by a state patrol past curfew for not having tail lights.

The weird thing is the inside overhead lights are out, the odometer and speedo, but everything else electrical seems to be working.I did not drive it to work as I was worried it would do something else on the way.
I will reseat and check the fuses and relays and all whenIi get home today. A friend has offered to loan us their truck, which may get us there anyway.
Buying a truck with 199K on it may not have been the best idea(?)
