LOL - I'm sure velcro will be my new best friend.

Thanks Holly! I looove your avatar, btw. I didn't realize you had a 1972 too!

The tankless I got is the TwinTemp Junior (the same one as in the Vintage AS Podcast). It puts out 44k BTUs of heat, and I have 3 blower vents placed at the bath, the bed, and by the door. It has a closed loop that runs anti-freeze, and then separate pipes that are heated by that for the hot water. I have it mounted at the back of the curbside wheelwell, in a cupboard. I can also get to it from outside from one of the access panels. Jo or anyone else, I will try to answer any questions about it!

I hope I am warm and frozen-pipe-free this winter, we'll see! I'm right outside of Pittsburgh and will have a spot in the woods when it starts to get cold. Hoping I have a bellypan by then, but if not, I will have wood planks to hold insulation at my tanks and drains. Presently working on a heat tape, then double insulated pipe thing for the outside drains. I'll also be skirting it. The owner of the camp says after all of the lines are taped up, he wraps them at the city water with more insulation and then covers the whole thing with a barrel. For better or worse, you'll hear about it!

I have posted some pictures of ours in my restoration thread..."It's a Girl!!!"...check around post #391. We used the ShowerMate M-500 it's just the water heater - w/o the room heater part like the TwinTemp Jr. it's also less expensive (saved over 1/2) if you don't need the heater part. We used it for the first time this last week at a boondocking rally - works great! The best part is, you don't have to add a side cut-out to your trailer, it vents through the floor.

Thank you Inside Out. That was the one I was looking for.That will be a future project.The po had put in a new tank water heater so with all the other things to do it is way into the future. You guys did a great job on your trailer.----------- Thank you Brock I am interested in the shower one . I am going with a ceramic heater when the time comes hopefully it will help the yearning I have for a fireplace.I just remembered some stuff we used to hold things in place it was called museum putty I think you can find it in craft stores it works good and easy to clean up if you want to move stuff around. Thanks again for the replies. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Gypsy Jo

We have not quite fallen off the face of the earth, but we have been living darn close to the edge, on a peninsula, without cable tv, internet or reliable cell phone signal. Lou, PM me and I will resend the new e-mail address.

Hi everybody. Who says work camping is work or camping? Seriously it can be a lot of fun, meeting new people, exploring new territories, gaining new skills and partaking of the many perks most employers offer their employees such as parties, theatre tickets, special discounts, freebies and perks including the the use of their exercise rooms, pools, hot tubs, boats, kayaks and bicycles, raft trips, and more. You get to stay long enough to watch the landscape put on a succession of beautiful seasons.

Brad and I started on Mother's Day and I left shortly after Independence Day but Brad will be remaining until the end of season and the finish of the pumpkin festivals in October. For now I have a more mainstream job at a health care facility in the activities department while Brad is baking at Grandma's Swedish Bakery. What I miss most? The flavored Door County coffee of the day, my sweet treat often prepared by my honey and sitting outside on Rowles Bay enjoying our break together.

Here's a few pictures.

Just checking in - seems a very lonely place this Virtual Online Rally - ha cause everyone is out in their airstreams.

The nights are getting colder OMG! the winter is coming.

So P and I have been out in the Mod Pod a bit - did the driveway camping in my cousins drive down at Lake Ontario - hmmm very economical!!! weather sweltering hot so the lake was great. Girls had a ball in the water - P did lots of reading and sleeping on his vacation - So stressed out - needed it.

We took another short week vacation at Murphy's Point Provincial Park - moved from one forest to another LOL. But did some hiking, took the girls for long walks and got in some kayaking.

Skipped an Ontario Rally - but we have heard by the grape vine that they have really changed - so hmmm might consider checking out an event - maybe!! There is one next weekend about 15 minutes away - ha hardly worth the hook up time - could just drive and do the meet and greet - but the weekend is double booked already so not sure....

We spent the last days of our holiday touring around our "back yard" so to speak doing things around here that we have never seen before in the 9 years we have lived here.

P is back to work and putting in the ice in his arenas - OMG winter is coming - did I already mention that????

Laura - sorry - I am on facebook but I don't do it much - I am not really up on all that it is and what it all means - I just don't have time to get into it right now with yep "winter coming".

I got in a couple of trips south to golf with my friend and have another planned at the end of Oct.

I just went to a girls weekend with some of my childhood friends and another is planned for next weekend that I may attend too. But have planned to hit Algonquin for the fall colours in ModPod for the end of September.

My ankle consult is coming up quick first week of Oct and I hope to be slated for surgery in the next 3-6 months!!!! I am so so so so much looking forward to having a new ankle and to finally live pain free. However it may put a big crimp in my ability to drive south for the winter - cause you know "winter is coming" But we shall see.

The continuing saga of the Waterfront lot - has us sitting waiting for the Judges decision at the moment. Our Lawyer summed up the Oppositions closing arguments in one word - "diatribe" look it up - I had to. We will hopefully be awarded a viable building lot finally after 5 years - over a mere 18 feet - it is an outright crime what we have been put through! We will be asking for costs and also will be going back over time to try and get further costs. We are also going to the Ontario Ombudsman to bring this mess to their offices attention. A lot of what we have faced regardless of living beside a selfish and greedy Doctor is because the "process" allows this to happen - it is wrong and needs to be changed and I hope that I can make a little difference in that area with some sort of citizen interest complaint along with some very valid changes to the process.

Dad is getting along in his new Condominium - all the Widows have their eye on him already - the dynamic is so funny - all those years when I brought the boyfriends home and Dad at the door shaking his head - ha now it is me - telling these ladies to sharpen their pencils tee hee.

P has almost finished the garage and hopes to have it done this weekend. It has been a huge project for him and he has had to face some pretty adverse crisis of late and finding it tough to keep going. But hopefully things will soon settle out. And he can start having fun with the Airstreams again. Ladybug is sitting patiently beside the new Garage as is the Overlander.

If I am staying home for this winter then we will be spending a lot of time on e-bay with the sale of all sorts of parts and things we have accumulated. Then we will line up some possible buyers for the two Airstreams.

I am not letting go the ModPod and her puller... no way - but the other two will have to go to pay for them

So how is everyone else doing - where have you all been hiding? Hope this finds all well and healthy and happy traveling and enjoying life.

As usual

Winter is coming, eh? LOL! We are hoping to camp into Novemberrrrrrr!!!
Sounds like you are keeping busy as usual, Sharon!
Larry and I have been having lots of fun camping. We have been all around OH. Getting to see the state parks, and doing some driveway camping here as well. The Luhrs (Airstream Life) were able to come through and spend the Labor Day weekend with us. That meant we got to crank up the backyard grill and start a fire in Larry's firepit. Rich did a slide presentation for us and we had some of our local Airstream friends come for a potluck. Yummm!!!
We plan on being in NE Pennsylvania at the end of Sept. We will visit Larry's little brother and then drop down to PennWood for the Fall Colors Rally with the AS crowd there. Oct. 8-11 we will be back in OH at Dillon SP to join the other Ohioans and anyone else who would like to drop by.
This weekend, MiketheFixIt and wife will be visiting our driveway for a campout. The LaGrange Engine Show will be over at the fairgrounds and Larry and I have to go and help out the band boosters with their pancake and sausage breakfast. The big fundraiser for the band kids. They also have a huge flea mkt. at the fairgrounds. I will have fun perusing the "goods". I am looking for ONE cabinet handle for the Excella. Since it is a 1989 I probably have little chance of finding a gold handle (that says Airstream on it), to match...but you never know what you will find!

And I need gas in my truck tee hee....

Glad to hear from you Lou and that you as usual too are nice a busy with the Airstreaming....

Thanks, Sharon. A picture is on its way to you via email. I hope it is a match! Anytime that gas tank gets low, you know you can get to here on fumes! LOL! You and all of the silver sisters are welcome if you get this direction!
Lou

Tango Divas and RVing Women

Hey gals I found a new site called Tango Diva.
Home

It's a community for women to share solo travel experiences, ideas, and questions in hopes of connecting with other women through out the world, learning about solo travel, and sharing their thoughts.

And here is a TS ELiot quote I found over there that I like too.
"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."

RVing Women is another site you might be interested in viewing.
RVing Women - Recreation, Support, Information and Networking for Women RVers

The events they hold are for women only. Here are their gender and age restrictions:

RVW events are restricted to women age 18 and older. Our organization seeks to provide opportunities for women to develop skills and friendships in that special atmosphere that is created when only women are present. In an all-woman environment, the dynamics of our interactions are different. We are responsible only for ourselves, free to pursue our own individual interests without the distractions that are present when we have children to look after or other family needs to consider.

Our goal is to maintain woman space. We therefore do not invite any men or children as guests at our national or chapter events. However, we do occasionally use male instructors, technicians or service providers. These men have excellent qualifications and display positive and helpful attitudes toward women.

Now c'mon tell me a rally of women doesn't sound like something very special and fun!!!

So calling all Silver Sisters, Rivettes, Tango Divas and RVing Women, c'mon out to the online rally and tell us your latest stories! Or perhaps even make a plan to meet!!

Sharon, we want pictures of the new build and your trips.

Lou how was your visit with Eleanor and camping with your daughter?

Steph, Suz, Gypsy Jo, Brock, Shari, Danalee, Silver Twin, Airdale, well everybody, just what are you doing these days?
Jamie, are you out there??

Thanks for the info & website link for Tango Diva, will check it out.

Just home from a 1200+ mile journey to Northern New Mexico for a Corners Unit Rally at Heron Lake State Park. Caravaned with some of my favorite peeps, that was the best part of the trip.

You Tow Girl! That's what we like to hear! Your pictures are so nice. And that is quite a heartwarming story about your dog Shane. You sure are the adventurous spirit. Tell us more about your trip.
