Nice looking airstream. The FB is a super floor plan.

CB welcome to the forums and welcome to a new way of life. Be bohemian and be proud...

Absinthe did not make Van Gough crazy, a mental imbalance did that. He wasn't drinking absinthe while he was locked up in the assylum, he was eating his paint then. I doubt that contained worm wood or it's active ingredient thujone.
Michael, do you put wormwood in your paints or wormwood in your glass?

Another man's poison. . .

Hey, CB,

Welcome to the forums and the wonderful world of aluminum!

For a lot of good information on absinthe, see Modern Drunkard Magazine!

Modern Drunkard Magazine Online

And in any case, you don't have to be crazy to be an Airstreamer. . . but it helps. . .

Cheers,
Nuvi

Welcome to the forum

Congrats on your new trailer. I would be anxious as could be waiting 5 weeks to see it. Anyway, I am Bohemian, and I think that you picked out a great Airstream Forum moniker for yourself. The economic climate is pushing me into early retirement as well. Well, semi retirement anyway.
You have reminded me to keep a positive attitude. And I thank you for that. So to you I say, enjoy the journey, the destination will wait. Go collect some friends and memories.

Congratulations! Your trailer looks gorgeous!

Here is a great article on bohedonism. Thought you might like it. (globeandmail.com: Appetite for excess). We can totally relate!

We caught aluminum fever last spring and let it ravage us too. Sadly, we have 25 years till we can go full-timing. We'll try to shave off a few of those years. Even sadder, spring is a long way off even though it is March. It's -4F today and the snow is 3 feet deep. That's life in the Great White North.

Enjoy your trailer! Happy trails!

Can I come to your happy hour? I will bring gifts. There is nothing else quite like being among other people that have a good understanding of what exactly is important in life. Congratulations.

Buffalo Theory

I don't know about the Absinthe argument regarding madness, etc. ... but I think all hedonists and bohemians could / should subscribe to the Buffalo Theory. Not sure where this came from, so I can't properly attribute it to the author, but you'll get the idea. (Hope this attachment thing works!)

Welcome on board, stop by and we'll toast your new rig over some Absinthe

Michael
First off! Welcome! Welcome! Atlanta's a great place to call home! It was mine for a few years...

Secondly, Absinthe! Great mention! I haven't found anybody in Mobile that carries it... had to settle for the imitated "Absente" this week! Love the entire process of it!

Ok, not hijacking... promise!

Have a wonderful weekend! Good luck 'Streaming...

Hmm. A man, not from Mars, but from Earth. A woman, not from Venus, but from Jupiter.

In four billion years none of these planets have ever crossed paths. Always going around in their own eclipses. Never really getting close.

Then a rogue black hole slips through a certain remote part of the Milky Way. Wrecking havoc, disrupting the equilibrium. Literally putting all the tiny planets and the lives of billions riding on them on new and unpredictable courses.

You never know.

If you want to get that new camper to you I will be delivering a camper in Houston on Wednesday and could bring it to Atlanta pronto. The company I drive for is fully licensed, permitted, documented, insured, yada, yada, yada. Horizon Transport Inc.

Why wait???

PM me and I will be glad to communicate in other more expedient fashions to assist you.

Godspeed,
Trent

I can now report that the Airstream has arrived safely in Waco. The inspection went well except for one thing. The overall assessment was "it's as though it was hardly used at all". Sweeeeet!!!

The air conditioner never quite got happy. There was no 30 amp circuit available. At first too much extension cord was suspected, but even plugged directly into 15 amps with an adapter it still wouldn't seem to go. I didn't experience any of it, but it was something like the sound cycled every 15 seconds, or something - in trying to determine if the compressor was getting started and staying started. It never cooled, that was pretty clear.

With a lot of extension cords I can see the voltage dropping to a problematic level without blowing a fuse. But when plugged in directly, I would think it would blow the 15 amp breaker or work. I don't know. It told them to accept it anyhow and we'll see I guess.

My sister and brother-in-law were awesome in the lengths they went to in order to go to Houston, inspect it over the course of a couple of trips to the seller, inspect the heck out of it using the list provided here with my annotations, and tow it back to Waco.

They said it towed just fine. Longer than he's used to towing, because their smallish fifth wheel also over hangs the truck of course. But no sway. He liked the way it towed just fine.

Now I'm stressed over buying the right truck. I'll get there.

Biggest disappointment so far? I don't see how I can make the Region 3 rally in Perry, Georgia, due to prior commitments!

Bohemian,
Be carefulr, running the AC on a 15 amp circuit is a NO-NO. It should only be run on a 30 amp circuit. There are stories here on the forum of people burning up their compressor running their AC on anything less than 30 amps.

Glad to hear everything went well. You had better get that Airstream away from your sister and brother-in-law, they may want to keep it for themselves.
