I can substitute bourbon for beer if that's needed.

yeah, there are work-arounds like bourbon that imo frequently lead to a better end result!

I may or may not be bringing a green bean cassarole and pineapple sausage and wine to share for the potluck.

FYI, Vodka is gluten-free.

A girl could swap out axles on a drainpipe. It ain't that difficult.

I ain't no girl....I am 75 and a few years ago, after 2 hip (axles?) replacements I replaced 2 axles on our Trade Wind. I did ask a neighbor to weld the shock absorber brackets to the axles before installation. Nope, I ain't no girl, but I am grateful for the one in my life.

Boy, am I glad to hear the weaker, less capable sex could handle such a job! When you meet my husband ask him who has more grease on their hands and dirt under their nails between the two of us.

DG,
Show this girl how easy it is and I'll give it a shot on my next TT. I'll assemble an audience for the special rally seminar on axle swap out at site #52.

Does having male parts help in switching axles? I don't think I used mine during the task, and I usually notice things like that .

Seriously, switching axles is actually one of the simpler jobs on the Airstream. You can even do it one axle at a time so that one never need get under a trailer on jack stands if that makes you feel funny.

We switched brakes from electric drums to hydraulic discs at the same time; that is a more involved procedure.

Jeff....I just called Casini to be certain that they and we are 'on the same page'. After a couple of confusing info she realized that she was consulting last years info. So...it is so....we are in 143, arriving 4/11, Thursday and departing 4/15, Monday (that 'may' be extended). We are pulling out from home here in Pleasant Valley to spend 4 nights at Westside Park, Bodega Bay.

Bart,
Too funny! We'll get the axles done after the rally. We've already got disc brakes.
In true Mod fashion, Mr. Mod is outside right now updating the power converter, replacing the battery boxes, replacing the kitchen faucet, fixing the trailer brakes (which became in-op during the last trip)....5 days before leaving on a trip. He mentioned doing the axles but I put a halt to that.
I'm wondering if I should do a mad dash and sew up the rest of the curtains for the bedroom....a good 'girl' job.
Tomorrow, I'll wash it again and when it's dry, I have a little more sealing to do at the front window. One leak still eludes me.

I can't wait! A few more days and we'll be sharing a cold drink with all of you fine people.

Neil,

Glad to hear that you will be with the main group and won't need your shrimp sent to you by special delivery. We will be arriving on Friday 4/12 and scheduled to depart on Tuesday 4/16. However, we don't have to be back to work until Thursday 4/18 so we may depart on Monday to camp at ?????. Anyone have suggestions where we should go camping for 2-3 days on our way back to LA LA land?
