Watch out for leaks, floor rot in the usual places.

One day I might write a followup about everyone seeing the 'new' Overlander. But, to summarize, my mom thought it was grrrrreat! My dad, while he appreciated the finished product, has never understood why anyone would not stay in a hotel when away from home. I believe his army service, winter tent camping at Fort Monmouth NJ, kinda jaded him when it comes to communing with nature.

Take a look at the "Tims Ford" trip entry on the web page. My aunt & uncle were in the group since their youngest daughter & her family were camping in their trailer in the site next to us. Uncle Les's health was taking a turn for the worse around then, and this was the first time they had been in the Airstream in a campground (they had seen it once before).

Cool visit. My wife and one of their daughters-in-law were inside cooking part of the meal mentioned on the page, and the Bay Breeze air conditioner was keeping the place extremely comfortable, even with only the screen door closed.

Uncle Les passed on a few months after that. Although he was was a man of few words, I believe he was happy with me getting his Airstream.

That is great that the Aunt and Uncle got a chance to see it being used by a family unit once again.

There are a few of our friends who do not get the camping thing. In their world when you are away from home it's either a B&B or a Hotel/Motel and they think the rest of us are weird. They sure feel left out though when we are all off camping, doing the wiener roast and marsh mallow thing, camped in great forests and along ocean and water beaches, and enjoying great hikes. But we do NOT rub it in. Oh sure, we may send them emails with tons of pictures, but we'd never try to make them feel bad. Nope, not us.

Thanks for sharing your pictures. You sure have done wonders with the trailer and it is so neat to have it's history as well. You will need to acquire one more, though, so each of the boys gets one when they are ready.....
