We are now into a New Year, 2017, and that makes me another year older and a little more difficult to be getting around.
With some minor health concerns, and having had both knees done in 2016, I now find it almost impossible to spend any time on a ladder, or on my knees doing maintenance on the CLIPPER.
Is it time to let my CLIPPER go?
The history of my Clipper is pretty well documented on this site, but if I decide to make this move, I will update all the specs, and include them in an add in the Airstream Classifieds. The CLIPPER #137 now has just 120,000 miles, with new tires and batteries in last half of 2016.
I have not made a decision at this point, but sitting here with winter aches and pains, has got me thinking maybe I should lower my expectations and start staying closer to home.
I am thinking I would need to get in the 40K US for the CLIPPER, but I would like to see that from someone that has the ability and resources to keep this legend on the road for another 20 years.
Am I being realistic? or is dementia setting in?
