After being used as a weekend get-away in Door County its getting a good cleaning. The interior is original and in good condition.
Were planning on bringing it to the Gathering and looking for all your ideas on decorating and restoration. With the help of our Forum friends we can return it to its former glory, maybe even better.

See you soon,
Tom and Sue.

Rachelle, the new trailer does not have a name as of now. Perhaps everyone can help with a name.

Schedule is Freeing Up!

It's looking good for us to camp this rally weekend, so I just moved us to the RSVP confirmed list.

We don't have Luna home yet, after the winter, so still need to do that and get her cleaned up and ready.. plus the dog pen needs a new coat of chrome paint :-) I'm considering installing hooks and hanging their little furry butts from harnesses.....

But at least things are do-able now!

Sue is doing hotdogs so I'll bring potato salad and chips to supplement it. Still thinking about what to do for potluck. Is it bring your own meat?

Spring Brunch in Northern Illinois

I will plan on bringing Steam Burgers for the Saturday night potluck. I am almost afraid to think about my arrival time on Friday as I will be towing with my 34 year-old Cadillac -- it doesn't take to being pushed too well. Will likely start my journey on Thursday with one night on the road -- don't want to push my luck -- the old sealed beam headlights aren't much fun after getting accustomed to the more powerful units in our modern cars so I try to avoid driving after dark with this rig.

Well I had another window shatter. Now I have half plastic, half glass in the trailer.....
Just received my manual crank and owners manual for the late 60's power jack. Parts and service still available!!!! I have to get through this weekend before I can start planning for the Spring gathering.

Kevin, will you be bringing the Overlander or Minuet?? Glad to see you are coming. We will keep you and the Caddy in our prayers.

It will be the Cadillac towing the Overlander this time. The Overlander had its turn for some over-due TLC this spring -- New blackwater tank to replace the one that was fractured when entering my side drive from the county highway with the deep dip at my drive entrance -- New Marinco 30 AMP power inlet -- New aluminum wheels (cheaper than having my existing steel wheels powder coated) -- and finally (I hope) new Carlisle Radial Trail LT trailer tires. The Cadillac has been through its spring ritual plus new CVJ boots, overhauled power steering pump, new front rotors, and new speedometer cable.

My first Rally for the season is this weekend near Rend Lake at Whittington Woods RV Park. Should have been my third, but I turned up sick for the first and my rig was experiencing sway issues that I had to troubleshoot when I should have been traveling to the second.

Kevin

Luna's almost ready

We brought Luna home Thursday and I've beee busy cleaning her out.. when Sue started this thread she said "shake out the cobwebs" and she wasn't kidding!

Plus a few mouse poopies, but nothing lke what I feared. I found one small mousie nest in a kitchen dishcloth I had used for packing between some glasses.

In any case, electric is working, plumbing is fine.. no leaks.. battery is charged! Air conditioner fired right up.... pretty good for a girl as old as her! She's 42 :-)

Now Gary has two small disasters to take care of, which, as we all know, will either go just fine OR turn into HUGE disasters.. he broke the leg on the gaucho and he broke the collar on the cone light over his bed.

Tom has been working hard all weekend on the new trailer, and at this point in time we believe she will be travel ready. Some things still need to be fixed and hopefully we will accomplish this on Monday. Water could possibly be an issue due to a problem with the the pump. Let's hope Tom can fix it.See everyone soon. The weather outlook seems good.
Tom and Sue

Please advise us about the location of the Airstream rally in Pecatonica next weekend. Will signs direct us to the site of the Airstreamers? What park or place are we looking for in Pecatonica? We're virgins at this. Please be gentle. ; -)
