Minno! Fantastic! You are obviously with us in spirit. Keep up the good work and w'ell see you next year with Airstream in tow. Remember though everyone, your Airstream does not have to be Perfect or even finished to learn and enjoy yourself at this fabulous seminar/rally.

Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse... but you take a boat in the air that you don't love... she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds.

Man - I soooooooo wish we had made it. Especially after seeing the pics on replacing the skin and repairing the door of Ken's trailer. Business travel for me (Week in the Boston area) prevented us from making it this year.

Question though - maybe for Kip or Roger. In the pic below, someone is using a tool to cut through rivets to remove the panel. What is that tool? A chisel of some form, but it anything special? Looks a lot easier than drilling out an entire row of rivets. Which we'll be doing very soon to install the new side wraps around the bottom.

It's a simple steel putty knife. Zep

Really?? It looks more heavy-duty than that in the picture! I have one, so I'll give it a shot. Did you grind or file any kind of sharp edge on it?

Thanks,
Chris

I'd love to see it sometime. I've always been interested in these type of energy efficiency homes and self sustainability. JT (54 bread loaf)

Thank you to everyone who joined in the communal BBQ last night on the patio. It was a great excuse to get together and an opportunity to clear out our refrigerators! Jim, Boone and I made it home today after 13 hours on the road. Wunderlust has already set in.

Safe travels everyone and let us know that you made it home OK!

Resto-ralley

Once again I had a great time at this years resto-ralley. This was my fifth time and my Caravel was finally finished with the exception of a few details and polishing. Thanks to everyones kind comments, encouragement, and praise, it was very humbling. Thanks to the patient tutelage and expert advice of professionals, an average guy like me could actually realize his dream. Anyone can do this with the support system and gentle guidance provided at this event.

Thanks to you all,
Sheridan

P.S. I took the long way home keeping one of my promises that this coach will never be a "trailer-queen". It's time to actually use it and I'm loving every minute of it.

Dan, that first photo looks like you're going up the Mokee Dugway to Muley Point. I hope you enjoyed that area as much as I do. I'm making plans to camp there in the Overlander after the Kayak Rally at Lake Powell.

Zep, That's the spot. Should have had my Mt. Bike with me. Love the desert.
