Rivet Master!! Who ME??!!

With this my 500th post I accept the title of Rivet Master with great humility.
Over the past year I have had the pleasure of meeting a number of forum members. Some at their homes, near and far. Some have even surprised me with a knock on my door while I was camped out at their local Wal-Mart.
I've learned so much in the past year, and I've been able to share some of my knowledge with others. That's what I love about this forum.
I'd like to extend my thanks to all who have made my Airstream ownership the pleasure it turns out to be.
I've got aluminitus big time.. Airstream motor home of course, all aluminum long wheelbase recumbent bicycle, and even a part aluminum (removeable hard top, hood and deck lid) Cadillac Allante'. All have our trademark silver color.
Once again a big thanks to all my friends (you know who you are) and to all who have helped me to begin this great journey of sharing knowledge.

You really are a "Rivet Master". Having talked with you on the phone, as well as many posts back and forth, I feel like I know you personally. Thanks for all the support and advice.

P.S. I'm still waiting for the GV delivery, but I'll keep you posted!

Glen, congratulations on the first 500, the next 500 should be easier!

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
