WELL..... I broke a window (my fault i forced it), and then a series of minor items, cabinet closure, dinnette table bracket, and some other litttle things. I also had them repack the wheel bearings as recommended in the manual. I alway like to keep things in perfect condition and I have no mechanical ability.I may sell it next spring as I am considering a somewhat larger unit.

All Shook Down

The shake down trip with the Expedition was a total success.
The truck pulled great and the only problem, it you want to call it that, is the mirrors don’t come out as far as they did on the old van. The extension mirror I have won’t fit the mirror housing. No big deal though.
I also want to do a bit of work on the gauchos. Need to raise the front edge a bit to make it more comfortable to sit on.
We’re ready to roll and looking forward to the rally.

See ya’ soon,
Tom.

It will be strange to see you guys without that old van, which was a pretty good one!!!

Thursday I have a Motorhome visit with the physical therapist to work out how to get into and out of the motorhome with the new "leg." If all goes OK we will see you all on 12th.

Hi gang,

Went out to the MH this morning with the physical therapist and all went well. Am able to get in and out without problems, so all is good for leaving in two weeks. Looking forward to seeing you all.

Jim

Welcome wader. Let's hear from you.
Sue's getting excited. Rachelle, do we need any side dishes or is everything set with the caterer? She's got her Hawaiian party stuff packed and ready to go.
At this point I'm waiting for the 10 day forecast to see if I'll get there Thursday or Friday. Want to wax the old girl (not Sue ) before I go.

Tom.

Tom and Jim,

Thanks for the welcome.

Before you guys get too excited, I won't be bringing my unit since it is currently in "drydock" but at the suggestion of "till" I'm planning on making the trip down with my family for the afternoon on Saturday. I've been corresponding with RaChelle on the details.

I'm looking forward to meeting all you folks smart enough to own a '67 :-) ...and of course any and all others willing to meet my restoration crew.

I'm a greenhorn and this will be my first Airstream "event" so I'm hoping that IBT style rules don't apply. LOL!

See you all on the 13th.

I will guarantee that IBT rules don't apply.

I read your blog and wondered how you would be done in two weeks. Now I know. Hope that all the family will be coming.

We have a couple if spare chairs that you are welcome to use while you are there.
