WOW! That's so exciting Loren! A new silver bean in the silver family. No one will be able to follow this for news, that much is sure!

Then its camping time as a reward for good wedding behavior. Ha! Then the cleveland marathon rally weekend, and memorial day weekend with the in laws. Some where in there mike & i will be starting a new journey to start our little family. We have finally got all the stars aligned and will begin ivf treatments before the end of may. Excited, nervous, hopeful... *eats a marshmallow* yeah. So our camping time will be limited this year to maybe 1 outting a month with an added stop at a close state park occasionally.
I have gotten to live vicariously through my rents as they have wondered the us the past year. Glad to have them home though.
Ok, I've checked in. Where is everyone else?!
* throws on a few more logs*
Congrats to you and good luck. So far this year we have yet to take a trip. Rusty Rivet is leaving on Thurs for a fishing trip to Montana with friends. While he is gone I guess I will start planning our trips. Plan on spending quite some time out this year. We have a new puppy that we will be able to pick up May 27th. When we bought our trailer 4 yrs ago, we had planned on our little gal traveling with us, but we lost her before she could make a trip. It was really hard on us, so it took us this long to add a new pup to our family. Very excited about getting her with us and taking her on her first trip.
So I am adding anoother log, and adding some glasses for wine and martinis. Seven layer dip and chips are almost ready. Good wishes to all for this summer traveling season. Susan

We loved the people and the lands up in the NW U.S.
We are going to spend some time in our area this summer. We ARE signed up to go to Alumapalooza and hope to see some of you there. Larry and I volunteered to do the "parking crew" jobs again this year. We had so much fun last time.
And our next camping adventure will be the weekend of Mother's Day. We are going to Penn Wood Airstream Park, Limestone, PA with our silver friends and family and anyone else that wants to join in.
I am making special "Airstream" signs. My friend, Ella, who is an experience camper, but new to Airstreaming (in her 16' Sport), inspired me to make some "signs" for the trailer crawl fun.
We are hoping to have some of you travel through and courtesy park with us this summer.
Throw on another log...that was a long story!

Hey Sharon and Carol. I just love to read your posts!! You are so spunky!!!!!! You inspire me to be goofy, fun-loving and self confident. Yes, you bring out that in me!!!

Lou, I'm going to the Alumapalooza too! I'm caravanning with one other gal, who also tows a 16' Bambi, plus our two navigators. We call ourselves Thelma & Louise and Lucy & Ethel. I'm Louise and we have a blog called "Four Women, Two Airstreams and One Amazing Trip". I can't wait!!! I would love to meet you and your hubby at the rally so I'll PM you with my info. It will be an honor to meet one of the Silver Sisters!!

That reminds me, are there any other Silver Sisters going to the Alumapalooza? Or do any of you live around or near that area in Ohio? it would be a blast to see if we can get a mini Silver Sisters gathering somewhere around there. Just dreamin'.

~Cari~

Hi Susan. I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your sweet dog. Even though it was years ago, I can only imagine you still really miss her. I'm excited though, that you've got another little puppy to love!! How neat for you!!!

Hey Susan, so you live in Oregon. Do you belong to the Airstream Oregon Unit? Do we know each other? I'm Cari King. I tow a 16' Bambi Sport. Anyway, If I haven't met you, then Hello!! It's nice to see you here. If I have met you, then how cool!!!! It's fun to connect names on the forum with Airstreamers I meet! Oh and thanks for the martini's! I just love those!!

Ciao!

Hi there! Is there room for another by this fire? You seem like such a great bunch! We just brought home our first AS yesterday! It is a 1965 Caravel. She is in fairly good shape and as soon as we got her home I started cleaning as it was pretty dirty in there (she sat for several years),, found a dead mouse and a dead bird :-( that I could have done without. On the upside found some original bits and pieces that we hadn't seen before. Looking forward to getting to know you better, it is nice to have a spot for "us girls".

Andrea

Welcome Andrea! I'm so glad you found us! Yes, there is always room at the campfire, so grab a chair and sit right down! Congrats on your new Vintage Airstream!! Sounds like you're already giving her a lot of TLC. I've read that there are numerous species found in old Airstreams that have laid too low, for too long. Good luck with all that! I'm excited for you and all the Airstream adventures you'll have!! Keep coming back by, for a fireside chat and letting us know how your project is going. Take care.

Ciao!!

Lou I bet those signs will be great. Some of our new sisters haven't seen your artwork, crochet, handmade cards, banners, flags, signs, and all your creativity. Lou's a wonder and makes such special cards!!! If Larry gets the Alaska pics up online give us a link, OK? You and Larry will be great greeters and parkers. One of these years I may make it again. I loved the Homecomings!! JC rocks during festival.

Suzanne, this dip is delicious! We want to see pictures of the new pooch when you get to pick up your new fur baby!

Cari where's your blog? It will be fun to track your adventures. I will be living vicariously through your travels and cheering you on. That's awesome to have a trip that long and share it with more silver sisters. Oh the trouble, I mean fun you can get into. Just don't follow that Thelma and Louise thing too far. (We did see that canyon in Utah, Dead Horse was it?) Hey this chocolate is really good, no wonder one went MIA.

Andrea, hi! Glad to meet you too. Congratulations on the new 65 Caravel. That's a really sweet vintage unit. Can't wait to see what you do with it.Our Airstream had sat for a while unused and had critters too. Even the new ones get critters... but those are usually still alive.

The only Thelma and Louise impersonations we'll be doing along the way, is lookin' hot, while we're drivin' down the road!!! If only I looked like Louise!!! Hooey baby!!Now your talkin' trouble!!! You can google the blog by putting in just the first 4 words; Four Women, Two Airstreams and One Amazing Trip. Yep, look out good ole US of A because the gals from Oregon are out on the loose!

Ciao sweet sistahs!!!

Anyone in for some brownies with fudge frosting?? Just out of the oven. Good news is that it is zero calories here.
As soon as I get my little new fur baby I will post a picture (right after I figure our how). Beautiful day here in Oregon. My trailer is headed to Montana - without me. BooHoo. I'm tossing another log on the fire. Susan

Yum! I'm in for the brownies, I need them today. It was tough to concentrate at work when I knew I had a new silver beauty sitting in my driveway that needs some TLC. Thank you for the generous welcome, wish I was going on that road trip, sounds like fun!
Had another critter issue today but it was alive and I own it. Bella kitty went exploring and got stuck somewhere around the stove /sink area.......it was ten stressful minutes, her meowing and me trying to figure out where the heck she went!! How about some wine to go with those brownies? I think I need that too!

ha ya'll do know why I have been so quiet now don't you....Carol sent me for some twigs off that dang truck and I have been sitting over behind the table stuffing my gob with food - have not eaten in weeks

Seriously though...welcome MistyT - oh the memories you have triggered with the early days of my airstream experience...search "moonbeam" on here and you will see some crazy questions, and a transformation of a 69 GT. Also search "Flight of the Ladybug" for another good laugh. Now mind you things have changed quite a bit in our lives but the airstream follies we could have written a comedy series on.... you will have a great time planning and working on your 65 Carvel. I must say this forum was an absolute godsend with any and every question I came up with - still have them even with the new ones...

Man these brownies are freaking delicious!!!!

Must get some of that Black Current wine eh Carol - maybe I can employ PK to make me some at a price - at least I know I can get the strawberry chocolate port or whatever that potent stuff was...


Has been a busy week and my project was a large one that had me slaving away like a dog...and here is the result...

So what do you think - looks pretty spiffy eh.

Now wait till I tell you what it is made of and how much it cost....

$56.73 - for 6 cement deck blocks.

4 4x8 skids better known as pallets and 56 custom slats to fill the open spaces. Left over 2x6's from the RV garage build.
I spent four days dragging the suckers out of the forest, washing or should say scrubbing. Then found some wood to make the new slats with. scrubbed and sanded them too.

Then Peter came home from his GF's - we have not worked on anything together in almost three years. Other than purging last summer - well I purged he watched.

Although it has been a tough road for both of us - we have not spent more than a day together for almost 1.5 years.

I hated to ask but I knew I needed his help and it gave us both a nice chance to catch up. So I hired him as my installer at this end. Got it in in a day and I drove him back.

I finished of installing the rest of the boards installed the step, moved the picnic table and put in my fire pit...so place is looking like I actually live there and not just spend weekends there...

If you want to see some amazing things - google pallet furniture...heck with a bit of elbow grease you never have to buy anything new again

Still trying to figure out the best place to put up my Airstream Drive road sign???

Sorry no plants in the pots yet - still a tad too cold up here. Nothing goes in pots until May 24 weekend. and then I don't think they will sit on the deck as they will ruin it. Haily has no more complaints about the steps into the trailer and neither do I!

I had a lovely time meeting some Silver Sisters at Morro Bay. The dreary weather helped keep us together under or in whatever shelter was around. When I get a free minute, I'll add a Morro Bay entry to my Tin Pickle blog. Soon, I hope.

I haven't gotten much trailer work done this spring - the next project is to design and build a shot glass holder for the "bar" area that the top of the fridge seems to become every time we camp.

I have a few too many irons in the fire, the results of saying "That sounds like a great idea" too many times last fall. So I'm subbing as an 8th grade math teacher, spinning wool for a cooperative coverlet project (have to start warping the loom today, should have started weeks ago), and gathering paperwork and other necessities for herding a group of 15 middle schoolers on a tour of England for 3 weeks in July. Fortunately, I don't plan the tour logistics - I just count my group of kids to make sure that most all of them show up back at the coach at the end of the day.

I love the deck next to the trailer. We spend some extended time in one location some summers. Now you've got me thinking about what we could do to make the place look more like "home."
