Awesome, just awesome!!
We just landed in Austin, 1500
miles with no problems. We had to drive right through a massive storm in Louisiana and found a lot of flooding on the other side of it.
It will take a while to digest this adventure.
After seeing all these fine coaches and meeting some truly great people, we are proud to be owners of an Airstream Motorhome!
Kudos to Fred and Alan for picking Mystic Springs Airstream Park, which I believe every Airstream owner should experience.
When we drove up to Mystic Springs on Friday afternoon(after searching for shrimps for hours), the park host Rona and Sandy jumped out of their Airstream Trailer and rang a bell, welcoming us.
Our 1979 Excella had a very small cooling leak at the top of radiator, which I promptly wire brushed, cleaned with denatured alcohol and fixed with JB Weld (it worked!!) The drip of brake fluid, I noticed at the master Cylinder (scary!), was caused by some rust at the lid gasket.(fixed)
There was only one other MH in the park at that time. It was Cliff from Indiana with his beautiful 1987 345. After I set up camp, I immediately started to dismantle the 345.
It was rather disappointing to find nothing wrong with it, except the door bell wasn't working.
How Cliff can drive without a working door bell is beyond me.
In the early evening Charles and Ernie from Houston, Texas descended on Mystic Springs in a
1989 345LE. Charles called the trip the shake-down test. His coach was in perfect condition, except his rear air bags were ready to blow any time.
After dark, Edie and Brett arrived at the park with their 1976 Argosy. The park hosts stayed up to welcome them.
Alan and family in their 1982 280 came in way passed midnight, but we never heard them.
By Saturday morning, we were 5 MH's strong and everytime I looked down the row, it send chills down my spine!
Saturday afternoon Fred and family arrived in their 1985 345, hose reel fixed, 0 psi in the front air bags.
By late afternoon, the last missing MH founds its way to Mystic Springs. Dr Joe and Winn in their rare 1984 270 excella. Dr Joe must have felt like he was pulling into a pit stop at the Daytona 500.
As soon as he parked his coach, his exhaust pipe was remounted, his awning fixed and made operable and was given general shake down.
What a great experience!
