Hi Nancy - welcome back ----where we're ya anyway??
A little bit of ice and the world shuts down - that is too funny - but as far as us northern girls shovelling snow - NOPE none of that stuff here - not quite as warm as MI - but yesterday was the first day in over a month we have gone into the negatic celsius -11c and of course just when we get home from a day of hunting for new propane tanks - the furnace is blowing cold!!!
Trying to keep the house above 50F so the pipes and my own pipes don't freeze. We have a wood stove for back up and 3 space heaters - one of which is assigned to the basement to keep the water from freezing.
Sunday Serivce call coming in about an hour yippee and he has an igniter switch with him.
Just been shopping at the Vintagetrailersupply - getting ready to place the big order!!! bill already 800+. Working on the guy down the road to sell us his greenhouse hoops (heavy duty ones - about 40' long) don't need it all but they will do just fine to get the OL2661 undercover for her winter resotration. Don't mind working in the cold - but it is the snow that can get ya down - although we have none - I have a feeling we are going to have a heck of a 6 week winter!!
Just waiting on the "official" change over - cash for product - and the former MoonBeam will be on her way to a new identity. That saying when you least expect it......and after all that emotion we went through before Christmas and all the support from you guys.
No worries though we are keeping the "MoonBeam" identity just stepping back a decade to 1961
where DR MOONBEAM the prequel will take over the Kallaste adventures. Will post all the changeover details once the deal is officially taken place.
Looking forward to the summer JFMAM+3 weeks I sure hope that is enough time to get the Overlander ready - or at least somewhat ready.
...Now come on you gals don't be making my head swell - the logo was a lot of fun - and if I have a bit of time next week will look a bit more into the marketing apparel sites and maybe get something ordered.
So I take it we are sticking with the date and leaving the date on the sun logo??? Did anyone want the location of the Rally included on the logo??
As for the main "Rivettes" logo - do we want the word Rivettes in the logo somewhere? - I guess we can not have Airstream cause you know who will get their nickers in a twist - even though we drive around big fat billboards for them daily
I could pop "You Tow Girl" on the bottom black banner or Rivettes - maybe I will do up a few and post them here next week sometime.
Betcha VAS is saying about now - check out already, place your order!!! But we have to be patient - can not spend money we do not have yet. In the meantime have to go out in the cold and do a few little things for the New Owner - just cause that's the kind of people we are.....Give the hitch a new coat of tremclad, touch up a few nail fill holes - put together a repair kit with extra little items specific to the GT and say my good byes.
But sometimes you just have to move on forward...
I see there is another one on the classifieds - but 6500 is a tad too high for what she does NOT have functioning in her. - no guarentees on the floor either. Would be starting much further behind than we did with MoonBeam. But it is surely tempting......
If anyone else out there really liked ours she is the same layout...but be prepared to drop about 5-6K by the time you are finished if you do it right needs all new appliances, Running gear and new floor covering in addition to the complete resotration of the cupboards and new upholstery and curtains cha ching....when we think of it from that point of view - we just say - move onto the Overlander now and be happy with the prospect of traveling again soon.
Anyone want to have a restoration party??
