Thanks for the comments on Terry's photos. Yes, they're of Kirk Creek, a favorite destination. Have fun on your outing Gemma and Murray!

Thanks for your kind words Janet.

We've got site 19 booked for two nights. It looks like the same site you were in. Hopefully, we'll have the same great weather you and Terry enjoyed on your trip.

Cross you fingers for us!

Jeff,

Yes, Christian will be coming this year. Yay! So will his older sister, Alana, who's twelve. Probably not so, "Yay" as far as the boys are concerned.

Both are looking forward to camping. Christian especially and he's asked about Collin as well. Sounds like they're both on the same page and will have a great time along the river and in the game room.

Hi Janet,

Kirk creek is beautiful. Each time you go there and post pictures I am so jealous. Its not that far away and would be a nice trip for Cindy and I.

Im glad everyone is checking in. Jeff, sorry about your flooring. It would be nice to think that we could all dodge a bullett with this floor rot thing but I dont think so. Its just a matter of time. Would be interesting to do the repair. Wish we were closer. There will be an available spot soon LOL!

Neil.. you will get the first Shrimp off the barbi this year.. I will have my fabulous assistant Cindy run them over to you..

Vinnie

Vin, make room in the yard were comin'
With the Britmobile almost done I don't want you to get bored
The floor rot will give me an excuse to finally do something with the original berber carpet and put something in that is more kid friendly. The actual floor repair will be easy. Wish there were no lousy vista views to deal with.
If I wanted daylight I'll go outside!

Neil, I need to sit near you for the potluck as my luck will maybe change in getting one of the those famous Vinnie shrimp!

Jeff

Jeff,

I think the Vista windows are cool! There must be a way to get them to stop leaking.
I can imagine the Berber carpet is NOT kid friendly. lol

We were actually thinking of just bringing a meatloaf from safeway this year...

Vin

We like vista view windows too Jeff. We're sorry the window seal gods have not been kind to you.

We're thinking about bringing a brick of Velveeta for happy hour to go with Vinnie's Safeway meatloaf.

Help me un-jinx myself. I knew that I shouldn't have mentioned getting the car painted. The body shop wants the car Monday so as to not crowd my time between the yet to be undetermined completion date of the paint and Casini I thought now should be the time to take care of a nagging problem with intermittant brake lights on the car. I had traced the potential problem to the wiring in the steering column where the directional light switch is. Weeeeell, the bearings at the knuckle for the adjustable steering wheel disintergrated. I had been wanting to get rid of the 2 'donor cars' that I have for a while so thankfully I didn't. It would be easier to switch out a steering column than to repair the one in the convertible. So I had the donor car's column out in a couple of hours so then I began to remove the convertible's. GAAAAD!! I was amazed how much wiring that I had added over the years, stereo radio/cd, gauges for towing (oil/trans temp and oil pres.), trailer brake controls.......and so on. It looks like spaggetti at a Casini Pot luck under there and it all had to come out. The donor column is in..sorta and now to put back the gauges and trailer brake controller. But I am trying to prepare for more glitches now. Squiggling around under a dash is hard enough...I am really testing the endurance of my 'fake' hips. So help me not to endure any more jinxes .
Neil.

Oh boy Neil,

No pressure right?! Ofcourse it was a good idea to yank the column out just before the paint job (i think).
Sounds like you got a handle on it and everything will work out great. If you have any little details to work out once you get it back from the shop you should have atleast 3-4 hours before you have to hook up the airstream and get to Casini.. LOL

Your my hero for climbing around in there with all that spaggetti

Yeah...a hero okay. I was lying across the front seat (bench seat, remember those where your squeeze could snuggle right up next to you and the only place to place your right arm is around her )...lying across the seat reaching up under the dash when I slid off onto the floor...STUCK on my left side against the seat. Oh, my, I could only wiggle a little bit. I need to turn onto my right side to push my body outside thru the driver door. But at my feet was a large dash component that I had placed there. I didn't want to break it in my flaying around. The power seat switch was within reach to crank the seat back a few inches but I had disconnected the battery to work with all that wiring. Oh, what to do? Lynn makes me keep my cell phone with me for potential senior citizen emergencies like (HELP, I've fallen and can't get up!). My pride wouldnt let me call.....just yet so a laid there for 10 minutes planning what she could do to help. Ideally reconnecting the battery so I could move the seat would be the solution but the battery is a side mount connection away from the front and I knew that would be very difficult for her. I knew the neighbours (English spelling for Hans and Lilli) were not at home. I decided on a plan and dialed, Lynn...went to voicemail...tried again as sometimes she can't get to her cell quickly and she answered..standing over me in the garage. So I had her remove the dash component and I after some kicking and thrusting...no guys not what your thinking...it took a few minutes, more than 2, to finally drop to the cold garage floor. I decided that I needed a rest and to warm up. I slept for 3 HOURS! When I calmed down I decided that if I don't get the car 'in' I'm just not going to worry. My neighbour body shop guy really wants warmer drier weather to work on the car. He has 2 or 3 classic cars in the shop ready to paint soon as the climate improves. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Neil.

Wow Neil,

This story has really developed into something here. Maybe it was divine intervention in keeping you from taking the car to the bodyshop. Maybe there is one last rock chip that must occur or it wouldnt be ready and your new tow vehicle is the ol jeep truck to Casini...

Yeah, that first chip/scratch do play upon me mind. Way too cold and rainy to work on it today. Car is 'mostly' in the garage but not enough to close the garage door and use the cat-heater. Gotta take Lynn to church now. I'm not going to pray for nicer weather....we DO need more snow and rain this winter..........but maybe not in early April

We ordered cork flooring for the Trade Wind. But it won't arrive with enough time to install before Casini. So the convertible will not have new paint or the trailer a new floor. I guess maybe we won't be as welcome .....Yes, I am trying to revive this thread!
