Off to work in the morning. Hope to get away around 6 in the evening and cross the border plus a few hours driving.

Airstream Polishing...wax it on, wax it off...

Brad and David,

I consider you guys great friends and I'm laughing because there is nothing you can do about it!

David, the weather appears to be warm enough for sockless travels in my docksiders...so you're off the hook.

Brad, your generous offer to make the 2 hour round trip from your house just to get my trailer hooked up is most generous and sincerely appreciated. I actually misspoke though...it wasn’t getting the trailer hooked up that I needed help with…it was the “POLISHING” I needed help with….but I know you’re happy to help with that as well. Watching a quick recap of the Karate Kid might help ...but basically polishing is so easy a cave man could do it (unless a trailer has been sanded that is).

I had seven shots in my back yesterday and got some prescription pain patches and steroids for reducing inflammation. I’m about 25% better…so I would say there is a 25% chance we will make it. How I improve today and tomorrow will tell. My plan is too get feeling a little better and focus the “roid rage” into a possible quick re-polish. (note, my wife isn't promoting this plan). Our trailer hasn’t even been washed since before the Hunting Island trip and driven through several storms.

We’ll see how it goes, as we really want to go.

Thanks again for the offers guys! It is much appreciated! G

Hey Big Al, thanks for your kind words. We sure hope we can make it...was looking forward to seeing you guys too. There's a better chance than yesterday that we'll make it. I'll bring my Canadian insulated mugs! Have a safe long journey in that twin turbo beast!

Do not care about shiny or how many meds you take. Just want to meet some of you and have a good time. Been here since Tuesday, all is well. 32 and sunny this morning, good weather for the weekend. Y'all have safe trips here, take your time and enjoy. The geese say, where are they? Jim

We had originally planned to arrive today (Thursday) but we've decided to take a roundabout route to get there so we'll arrive on Friday early afternoon.

I wish I could remember all these posts, matching forum names with people names so that when I meet you guys I feel like I know who you are but you're all foreign when I get there! So many funny people here.

Geven I'm with the Mrs, get yourself well enough to have a good time at the rally and worry about what the trailer looks like another day.

I'm jealous of those of you who are arriving so early...man I'm gonna have to learn to tow our trailer! Have a good time and see ya'll tomorrow night. I'll be the one none of you know. haha

We're dewinterizing in our driveway later today (though it was 32º last night - hope that was winter's last gasp!) and headed over to arrive at around 3P tomorrow.



First outing and looking forward to it, albeit in an SOB!
