FYI, you can make a thought screen helmet for less than $30 if you purchase Velostat by the yard. Here are the directions. Some people will never learn...

Stop Alien Abductions


My feeling has always been that RVing is all about adventure and discovery.

I want to be abducted by Aliens (as long as they bring me back)

I want to gaze into the eyes of a Sasquatch and see its soul.

I want to see what's around the next corner and over the next hill.

I want to stand on top of a peak and see the wonders of the valley below.

So, I poop in your silly tin hat.

Now on to the subject of the thread ( at least as I understand it.)

Some of the questions asked by new members are pretty cut and dry.
However the majority are ones that involve opinions (which some members easily confuse with facts). There have been more than one example lately of of a simple question starting a verbal fist fight.

Imagine walking down the street in a strange town trying to find a particular point of interest. You see a friendly little café with people engaged in pleasant conversation. You think this looks like a good place to ask for directions. So, you walk in and ask politely. This quiet café quickly erupts into a furious brawl over which of many ways to get there is in fact the only one true way. Or perhaps, one guy says, "I think maybe it's down that way" and then the whole discussion turns to what is the neatest feature about the point of interest. I doubt that you would stop for lunch on your way back.

So, until all of us find a way to offer our own suggestions while still respecting the suggestions of other posters and also respecting the OP's right to make their own decision about the various suggestions, and their right to not have to wade through a bunch of side discussions in the thread THEY started, we will lose some new members (and perhaps a few old ones also).

Ken

Dave, you sir are correct. Inside the Airstream the aluminum skin shields the brain from electromagnetic fields and prevents mind control or mind reading and successfully limits the transmission of voices to the brain. So just grab your hat when you go out the door. BUT BE SURE that Ken didn't get to your hat first.

I talk big, but I am guessing I would scream like a liitle girl if I came face to face with an alien or a sasquatch.

I do have one of these for the back window of the TV

BIGFOOT / SASQUATCH I BELIEVE VINYL DECAL / STICKER | eBay

After reading your post and going back to the title of this thread I believe that your post correctly answer the question posed in the thread title - mysterious disappearance of wannabe fulltimers better than the other posts. I laughed my &&& off. Question answered.

How long will it take for this topic to be on the history channel's "Ancient Alliens"? How long has this been going on? Why are we only now catching on to this phenomena ?

Are they coming to take our Airstreams away? The end of the world in December 2012 is one thing but aliens taking our Airsteams is completely another. I'm sure glad we have you with your brilliant insights and instincts on our Airstream side.

If you are worried I will get you a hat.

Ken, it is well known that space aliens dissect humans when they abduct them. It is also known they resect them when they are finished. But what if the alien surgeon gets confused? What if he can't tell a human from a Romulan or a Klingon? What if your thumbs are resected backwards and you can't grasp a bottle of beer? What if your nose ends up in your butt? Imagine the consequences.

Wear the silly hat. We all do.

I try look at the positive side of things.

If my nose has to end up in a butt, I would prefer it to be mine.

I will take the offer of a hat though, the john in our trailer could stop working.

It is best to be prepared.

Ken

I did not think of that when I read her post. However, You may be right. It is a nice tidy answer to the original question.

It would also explain the cylindrical UFOs that are sometimes reported. It would be a simple conversion for an alien.

Maybe the space aliens will be handling warranty work for Airstream.

I believe they already do. However, if you want it done correctly, you must take to to the factory on Aldeberan 3x.

The one on Alderaan is out of business now. It was in business and just went silent. Who knows about these things?

I don't know if an alien resection would cause that but a black hole will.

The mysterious disappearance of wannabe thread starters
Airforums suffers a pattern seen on other RV related websites.

1) People who have shown up, start a thread and ask all kinds of questions.

2) Forum members respond graciously, providing information and gentle hints that maybe it might be a good idea to go on posting to the thread.

3) Wannabe thread starters disappears from the thread never to be heard from again.

I wonder where they've all gone.

I wonder whether any of them appreciate the carefully crafted posts, information, and suggestions.

I wonder if any of them made it past six posts.

It wonders me.
