Blood...oh yeah, there was blood!

Well Saturday started out that way Ken...but Sunday, I dropped a rotary-cutter exacto knife-thingie on the top of my left foot & severed the tendon to my big toe...ouch! Vicodin is my friend right now...no margaritas for me!

Good thing the rally stuff is on auto-pilot now I'll just be a gimp!

Yes I did Ron... Sorry you won't be able to hang out for the whole rally...bummer! Are you going to be able to stay Sunday night or just drop by? You can still have your 'goodie bag' & t-shirts...although I'm not sure someone else is going to back-fill your site at this late notice....we'll keep our fingers crossed!

Ouch!!!!!!

Vicodin = Margaritas.... just about the same thing arent they...??

Glad I will still get the Tshirts, at least we will be on an Airstream adventure... and not some other lame excuse.. Wonder if we'll pass anyone headed that way....

Don't worry about the Money, it's water under the bridge, we'll just consider them VERY expensive Tshirts...LOL

Hope you will still let me have a tour of your rig, since we wont make the tour...

Won't be staying, since we'll be airstreamless, but may stay late to get to meet (most) everyone..


Thanks
ROn

I'll try to refund something...just not sure how much until I find out how the campground will handle it. I'll let you know, but it may not be until after the rally's all said & done.

Best of Luck to you all!!!

Hope you all have safe journeys, and we hope to stop in on Sunday, maybe my parking spot will still be available...

If you see a green F150 pulling a shiney overlander on 44/40, it's us... honk and wave.

Have a great time!!!!

ROn and Tony

Vintage Airstream Club - 2004 Rocky Mountain Rally

Greetings All!

I too HOPE to be on the road by shortly after noon today - - the original plan was to be on the road by Tuesday noon. Both of my tow vehicles threw last-minute tantrums - - courtesy my usual traveling companion - - Murphy or "Murphy's Law" fame.

On final check-up, the Cadillac was receiving its front end alignment. The mechanic came around the corner of the cutomers' lounge with the unmistakable look on his face - - "You have a serious problems that are not going to be easy to fix!" - - sure enoungh, after replacing all of the adjusting hardware and bushings in the front end the torsion bars on the left side are so badly worn that the front end cannot be properly adjusted. Of course there are no known sources for new torsion bars for a 29 year-old Eldorado.

So it was off to the garage with the Suburban as I knew it was in need of an oil change. Less than an hour later, my mechanic called me - - not a good sign. I knew that the transfer case was "stuck" in four-wheel-drive, but my mechanic has been able to coax it into two-wheel-drive when this happened once before - - not so this time. That rotten electronic circuit board that controls the shifting of the transfer case had completely failed and must be replaced in order to get the truck out of four-wheel-drive. The part has to be shipped in from St. Louis so it was supposed to have arrived about thirty minutes ago, and the repair is supposed to be completed no later than noon today. Knowing how many trips this particular part has interrupted (this is the 8th time that it has been replaced), I am only cautiously optimistic that the truck will be ready - - it has happened so many times now that the mechanic didn't even have to tell me how much the repair was going to cost -- I was able to tell him the cost of the part within $10 and the labor within $70 (this is the third time that I have had to pay for the part and labor since it has been more than a year or 12,000 miles since it was lat replaced).

I have two more possible tow vehicles in the "wings" but neither is completely ready. The '65 Dodge needs to have its wheel cylinders overhauled as well as the master cylinder so it isn't a great candidate for last-minute tow duties. The '94 S-10 Blazer Tahoe is another possibility but it needs a new transmission oil cooler as well as brake controller and new trailer connector harness to be ready for a long trip. I may be traveling "sans" trailer with the Blazer if the Suburban can't be repaired today.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Kevin
