Found it...I was looking elsewhere. Thanks. Carol, I'll come for a bit anyway. I only live 40 minutes away but work might preclude me from attending the whole rally. I definitely want to meet all of you and give my support. Carol,of course I remember you. We sat in your trailer and talked for quite a while. As to the pictures Carol was alluding to...My Grandparents started our family Airstreaming in 1961 or so. Grandpa was a professional photographer and he documented their more than a dozen caravans (including Africa, but not THE Africa caravan) with thousands of slides. Luckily I got to go on a few of those. While you might not want to see our family vacation slides (yawn...zzzzzzzzzzzzzz) I do have a series from some Internationals in the 60's that are nothing but trailers. I might bring those if there is an interest.
Tom

I'd love to see those photos some day, but I doubt Lorrie and I will be making NOVA-fest this year. Maybe our paths will cross some other time.

I just got our conformation from the service center for our alignment for Friday the 26. Our plan is to drive in on Friday am. I will have new tires and wheels ready to install while we are there ...BUT, AS. wants 95.00 an hour for that! Any one want to help me swap out 4 in the parking lot after the service center closes?

The axles ate one tire from new to flat in less than 1000 miles or I would do it before we leave.

Did you just put new axles on or what caused a change that wore tires out in 1000 miles? I just put on new axis axles this winter and I didn't measure any alignments because the axles fit so tight that there was no room to adjust anything if I wanted to. Maybe I will be needing to make an appointment for the same service in the near future! The NOVA-fest will be the maiden voyage with the new axles, so we will see.

Larry says he will be glad to help. What tools do you need for him to bring along. Will AS mount tires on wheels, or are you bringing tire irons, bead breaking mallet, sledge hammer, air compressor, bead lube etc.?????? Jacks?? Blocking??? Do I bring the whole garage, or just a little bit more? You can PM us for the phone number if you need to.

Jason :
Yes new GKN axles last spring. First we had them in "crooked" and had to measure from the tongue jack to the mounting flanges. Had to push one side while pulling the other to get them equal. Still not good. There was evidence of damage during shipping that has us concerned. The whorehouse guy that unloaded and "accepted" them has no idea about things like axles and just "signed on the line"! (one grease cap completely destroyed) this is the same one that is eating tires!)) If I were you I would run it and see what happens.as ours may just be shipping damage.

Lou & Larry :
Wait a minute!! Don't load up the whole garage yet. Last year and currently we ran/run new tires and white wagon spoke wheels. We don't like them now. With the new rock guard and new air conditioner the trailer looks like a "newer piece of junk" instead of "a nice older trailer" (all this will change when we get around to polishing) and are going back to the original wheels with new marathons. So tires will be mounted and balanced ready to install ON THE TRAILER. I carry enough tools to do this and will just run the trailer up on blocks and change them out. Thanks for the offer about the garage though.

wrench

Larry says to tell you to make sure you throw in the torque wrench. It shouldn't take long at all to change them out. He will be ready to help out.

OK, thanks

Maybe we could put this on the Rally advertisement. "Coat and tie not required to change Mikes tires"

Snow

Ah the snow. Love/Hate relationship for me. In the fall I love it and see it as $$$ from the sky. On Christmas and New Years day "Burden" that I think should all go away on its own! Then there is the 8 + inch on single days (Like the day we just had) Still have not decided about that (mind not quite working from being awake for 48 + hours with only a 1 hour nap IN the plow truck) On the one hand it is work and something to do that makes money. On the other hand, Sleepless nights and crazy people being out when they should not be are just enough to make a person say "FORGET IT! I GIVE UP!" But just then I remember that snow plow money is what pays for ALL of our outings and the Upkeep and Upgrades to the Airstream. Yes I will be out plowing AGAIN. Have to pay the NOVA bill and for the trip to OHIO in March. Cant wait. The truck is running now and I have a small list of walks to clear with the snow blower.
I hope I don't have to bring them in MARCH!!!!

Ever see an Airstream being towed by a snow plow?.
I (REALLY!!!!) hope I don't have to bring them in MARCH!!!!
