Glen and the semis

"Tim has a point about the rig for sale. Nothing to do but find a very large parking lot, city block, or a real arm workout just to turn that 370 around."
Glen,

I could turn the 370 around in any space that is large enough for the space shuttle. Actually, if you saw the driveway I had to back the Blimp into, you would assume I was quite a driver. I even had to make an 'S' turn to get it back beside the garage. And all that was done in reverse! Next to pulling my 34 ft. trailer with my Suburban, the Blimp was a piece of cake.

Tim, I'm sorry to see you've sold the Blimp, I hope it went to a good home.
Now, what the hell is that thing in your avatar? It's too small to make out clearly.

As I'm sure you can imagine, selling the Blimp was a tough, but necessary call. I loved it dearly, but our responsibilities to aging and ailing parents severely limit our travel time. Additionally, I was beginning to see the effects of having to store it outside. It went to a great home. A company bought it to use as a transport for VIP potential buyers of their products. They plan on a complete redo of the Plasti-coat exterior, and major interior upgrades of fabrics and things that were just simply getting rather long on the tooth at 17 years. Also, it will now live in an enclosed heated building, so I'm thankful it should see many more years of showing off it's unique qualities.

I take it you don't care for the replacement for the 370. That avatar is my new MoHo. Actually, it was some kind of early MoHo that I came across somewhere (probably from someone on this Forum), and I thought it would make a good transitional avatar from the 370. Since I don't own an Airstream now, I wasn't sure how an SOB, regardless of its quality of construction, would be welcomed on this Forum.

Steve,

I appreciate the endorsement, however undeserved it may be. Since one doesn't have to own an Airstream to be a member of this Forum, I wonder if it's OK to put an SOB (riveted aluminum, of course) as an avatar or profile picture? Not an issue to me, but it would let anyone checking out my profile know what I'm presently using.

I have serious doubts ANY of the MoHos will put my trailer. It weighs even more than our buddy with the 7,000 lb. racing Porshe and trailer!

Best,

Best,
Tim here is an avatar from a currently active forums member, and former Airstream owner:



I don't care what your avatar looks like, or even if you have one, as long as you participate--and don't mind the occasional snarky remark about your SOB...

Terry,

Thanks for the vote of confidence. Snarky remarks about my SOB won't bother me at all. I just have a great time posting and reading on here, and I think I still have things to contribute from my 30+ years of trailering, not to mention that I'm still learning all the time. I definitely plan to participate, and I'll see about the avatar picture as time goes by. I sort of thought the transitional one of a seriously "challenged" 370 would make a good way to pull back from the Blimp. Just didn't seem right to keep the Blimp picture up when I didn't have it any more. The new avatar has a sort of Darth Vader look, don't you think?

Maybe more of a "Lord Dark Helmet" look...

Slight topic change

Terry,

Is there really such a place as "Hurricane" Florida? If so, aren't you a little concerned by that? I mean, Florida gets enough hurricanes without using it as a place name.

There are no less than 6 places with "hurricane" in the name...
Hurricane Bay, FL
Hurricane Branch, FL
Hurricane Creek, FL
Hurricane Harbor, FL
Hurricane Key, FL
Hurricane Pass, FL


Hurricane Bay is 12 miles from our house.

Now I know the biggest reason you have an Airstream. One way to get out of town in a hurry. Actually, we have our share of hurricanes in southeast VA. Our problem is there are so many people living here and only 3 roads out, two of which flood if there's enough rain. Great planners up this way.

I evacuated with our Argosy for hurricane Charly in 2004. I loaded and left in under an hour when the storm made an unexpected turn toward our house. It made landfall about 20 miles North of here.
Okay, whose trailer is in your avatar now?
We probably should stop hijacking this thread, and get our own...

You're right about the thread hijacking, so this is it for me. New avatar is my current trailer.

Tim,

From the looks of that trailer, you are going to need a Tank to safely get it down the road. Is there a thread for tanks?
