Back!

After I lost my job and had to sell Icky and Hunkajunk for business start-up capital, I've been away for several years. But the aluminemia strikes again. We bought at 1968 Tradewind today. Pics later.

Hi everyone!

Glad things are going better

Welcome back, Laura, I remember you from the forum's early days.

I especially remember a picture shared on this forum where my 5 year-old helped me point out an issue of concern to you:

He's now 5'-9" and wears a bigger shoe than me

Best of luck with your TradeWind,
Tom

Thanks for the welcome! 5'9"?!? wow he'd be looking down at me! I appreciated that post and will probably be needing it as a reference again! I was lucky to stay in the 66-68 range as that is where my research was focused 7 years ago. I knew what I was looking at and what the projects would be. This unit has some issues but it looks to be in better shape. I punched, poked, prodded. Climbed under and on. Touched all the windows. I know I will find something, somewhere unexpected but that's the name of the Airstream game isn't it?
