So we had planned to attend a rally this weekend but our plans changed last minute. So instead I have been working on the motorhome. We got all the new light fixtures painted and installed, the interior part of the air conditioners cleaned, bathroom finished, and a new cover for the heat register by the door to the coach.

ID:	283840 this is the paint. Decent coverage. Eggshell finish. I will probably do the rest of the coach eventually. I really hate painting though.....

You're not the only one that hates painting!

Interesting paint. It will be interesting to see how well it works in the long run.

Thanks!

Brad

Paste that into your browser and remove the spaces. It might work.

Got the speedometer situation fixed. And got the drive shaft balanced and the u joints changed. Smooth riding! I had a terrible vibration from 40-60 mph. We are in hot springs Arkansas for a rally and on the way down took a bad road. Many steep down hills and up hills. At one point the brakes were smoking and had to stop to let them cool. I am definitely taking s different route home.

On other non airstream news we got new kayaks! They are all aluminum osagian kayaks made in Lebanon missouri. They are beautiful and float wonderfully. Click image for larger version

We got a carrier that carries them on their sides hull to hull. Gonna try that for the trip home. I am a bit worried about the wind catching them but hoping for the best... they do sit very tall on top of the jeep on the new rack though. Click image for larger version
