Greetings from San Diego

I am a retired pediatric occupational therapist, who has been reading the postings on this site for over a year. 20 years ago, I was active in tent camping but foolishly set it aside to focus on my career. With retirement, I am having a jolly time rediscovering the child within me and again enjoying camping.

I have had my 2007 23’ Safari SE/LS since last month. The information gained from this forum has been invaluable in avoiding the errors/frustrations of a newbie. It has been a lot of hard work researching and finding out what works for me. 2air’s postings have been very helpful.

This past month has been an incredible journey of learning the operation of and preparing our rig for future adventures. I am a docent at the Cabrillo National Monument doing 1887 history interpretation, the time period that the Old Pt. Loma lighthouse has been refurbished to. My plan is to travel about California and learn about its early history with the goal of sharing my knowledge with the public. Bringing history alive is a lot of fun and a reminder to not take our human rights for granted.

I chose "Fenghuang" as my handle since it is the name of our tow vehicle/AS trailer. "Feng" is the name of the male Chinese phoenix (tow vehicle) and "Huang" for the female (trailer). The female, "Yin", as noted in Feng Shui, is the moon and represented as silver. The male, "Yang", is fire, a nice match for the Ford 250 PSD. Fenghuang is a fitting name since I took delivery of the rig on the new moon.

This past year of the Fire Dog and has been a good one. Our rig is a "Fire Dog". The Chinese New Year, year of the "Fire Boar", will be starting on 2/18. It will be a fortuitous one since my partner and I are "Fire Boars".

Looking forward to meeting you on the road,
Larry

Welcome in.

If you are looking for your inner child. You are in the right place. We found ours and let them play at Rallies. Come to one and yours can play too.

We'll be in Malibu next weekend. Come out and join us.

See you around the campfire.

Wow. Another one from San Diego. There have been several of your neighbors showing up lately. Welcome to the Forums. I'll add one more invite to Malibu. Check out: Supporting Four Corners from Afar for all the scoop.

What an auspicious way to start your journey! I am intrigued as to your knowledge in ancient chinese zodiac and how you apply such to your modern daily life.
Hopefully you can make it to Malibu next weekend (President's Day & Chinese New Year). May be you can tell us more about Chinese Zodiac and show us how to "feng shui" our trailers! Would also love to hear more about Old Point Loma Lighthouse (I am a certified lighthouse enthusiast...please don't tell anyone else...).
Welcome to the the new family!

Thanks for the warm welcome

Thanks to all for such a warm welcome. Sorry, we will not be able to attend your Malibu rally due to prior committments .

I most humbly profess that I am not a Feng Shui expert, seeking my knowledge from books. Since my AS was built in Dec. 2006, it is a "Fire Dog" item. This is what I found:




THE FIRE DOG trailer (2006)






Feng Shui for the Airstream



Characteristics:
  • Adventure, solid, reliable, energy, devotion, honesty, perseverance, tradition, good taste, accommodating.
Décor:
  • Antiques, silk flowers, and natural materials.
  • Attractive upholstery to beg the visitor to sit down and take it easy.
Color: pale yellow

Gems & Stones:
  • Moonstone
  • Carnelian
  • Jasper
Auspicious corners and locations in descending order of luck as determined by Kua number (determined by manufacturing date year formula) e.g. 2006 = 0+6=6 + 5 (female) = 11, 1+1 = "2"
  1. Northeast
  1. for success
  2. West for health
  3. North for romance
  4. Southwest for personal development
The Airstream is an West group object.

Cheers,
Larry
