Party?!?!? Don's house!! This weekend?!?!? May I drop in? I could bring the Argy down but I'd have to use someone else's facility.

I've identified some sort of electrical issue with the Overlander. I've not had time to check it out. In addition neither trailer has been dewinterized yet.

Can I just stop by?
Anna has not been de winterized yet...
She still has a dead battery too...
All of last years dirt and grime is still in need of cleaning...
North Carolina is in the totally opposite direction...
This will involve crossing the Gee What were we thinking Bridge...
Butt
We are in.

Sorry if I was too critical. Okay I’m over the VT shock.

I grew up with master trades man. Remember the Italian joke about family and tradesman? My parents renovated houses, and trailers, motor homes, fifth wheels, etc. over the years. I have seen a lot of gutted houses & trailers. I have learned a lot about flex joints, plumbing, electricity the earthquake theory etc. which can wreck havoc in a new rig. I have also seen a lot of bad work done on my house. Did I ever tell you about the guy who did work on my upstairs? Installed the sub floor to the height of the finished floor???????????

I’m glad you have seized this as an opportunity to upgrade things you want in the trailer. Carpe diem! I think I would too. VT is one of a kind. I feel the same way about the Caravel just because of the story behind it.

Will you be making any other interior changes?

Robin

Read your link -- Where on the East Coast can you get your AS leak tested?

Looks like the owners have got the concept of a "lifetime trailer." Even if repairs are expensive, fixing & upgrading is usually a better deal than throwing it out and buying another one. And from what I've seen, VT is going to come out of this renovation substantially better!

See you guys on the road!
Rich,
Were on the East Coast can you get your AS leak tested?
Thanks,

Lin.

Frank,
A caravan may be a little difficult, our departure time is still up in the air due to my wife's co-worker being off Friday for religious observations. It may be noon, it may be 3:00 PM or antyime in between. Plus we are going to take the Great Northern route...I78...I287...Tappan Zee...I95...etc...

So I guess we'll see you there. Please have a frosty adult beverage ready for me when I pull in.

I hopeyour wife is feeling okay on Friday. I would hate to see her come down with a bad stomach flu and not be able to go into work at all on friday.

Yes! Zolatone in some places, Marmoleum throughout and all of the plastics will be repaired and repainted. We'll still keep the CCD feel in the front. The earthquakes did a lot of cracking damage to the 70s plastics and they're being repaired/repainted as I write.

Please see 62's quotes below. I couldn't have said it any better.

You're giving me ideas. Ideas are bad. They cost me money!

Nevermind the mention of Zolatone (my beloved loves Zolatone) and fixing cracking interior end caps...

There is no more room at the Inn!
A sweet little Ruby has claimed the last spot.

If you're still interested in coming with your rig, I can make arrangements with some neighbors/friends close by who could accommodate you. It would be boondocking only. I would need to know quickly though, cuz none of my neighbors even know there will be a party this weekend!

The 1st neighbor I would be contacting is 3 houses down and owns a 100 acre Xmas tree farm. That's the closest place for me to take my dogs so they can blow off some steam. And it's only about a 5 minute walk to our house. Not a lot of flat land there, but not terrible either.

If you're NOT bringing your dream stream, I'll get you parked onsite no problem.


So, if you're coming with your rig, I need to know by 8 p.m. Eastern time... tonight!

Thanks

Some ideas are good, Mongo.

Here's an idea: Saturday @ 2 p.m., Easton, CT.
Hitch a ride with bigfoosball so you don't have to pay for gas!
