Airstream ownership leads to exhaustion

Spent the last two weeks up north working on my latest list of things to fix on the MH. I need to take a vacation! On Saturday I was so tired that when I knocked the caulking gun off the work bench, I said I will just have to deal with it later...too tired to go under table and pick it up. I found the caulking gun yesterday while cleaning up...I had completely forgot about it.

I'm glad it missed my motocross boots!

Since it was self leveling caulk, it sure spread out nicely on the carpet. LOL.

Like you said, the boots escaped damage. Put that one in the WIN category!

I know what you mean!! I just finished cabinet work to add an oven and am in the middle of building a pole building (24X36) so the trailer has a cover over it, when that's done I want to change to a three stage charger/converter, and after that ... the list goes on!

The good news is that my wife and I are taking the trailer to sunny Sequim this weekend for four nights to get away from it all. I can't wait!!

It's definitely time to put away the tools and get this thing back out on the highway!

Oh, the joys of Flow Seal!!! The first time I used that I hung the gun up when I finished... The 3/4 of the remaining tube leaked out the end and filled an electrical tool bag. Everything inside was welded together with that stuff. Always keep the tip in an upward position!

During my first long trip with my B190, I was having a couple problems, not the least of which was the generator had died, so I had no A/C while on the road. Anyway, after a day or two of messing with it and other issues, my dad reminded me that I should go out and do something fun - that is, after all, the point of camping. Worrying about the camper itself during the entire trip is not fun.

We got our Classic because I was tired of spending way to much time every Spring getting the Safari ready for camping.

First trip with the new trailer...WP took a dump while dock'n. Spent a day jerryrigg'n a repair.

After "up-grading" the OEM converter with a Xantrex 55a, it took blew first time out at the same campground six years later, run gen every couple hrs for 14 daze. Bad Karma Kampground.

The fun never endz...
