Hi, my name is Bob Peterson and I live in Napoleon, ND. I have only lived here about a year since selling my farm up north of Heimdal, ND.
I had visited the Air Forums numerous times over the past few years and I finally decided to join toward the end of May, 2013. I have been working on my '70 Airstream Safari Land Yacht, 23' for several years trying to figure out how everything is supposed to work. Some one tried to make a park model out of it and changed all the plumbing around. About a month ago I made a deal for a '77 Airstream Argosy 22' Now I have 2 to work on. I originally bought the Argosy for the parts I wanted like antenna, air con, etc. Now Actually I am concentrating on the Argosy because it has air conditioning and duel axels which the Safari lacks and the plumbing is correct. Also the Safari got hit by hail a year ago and made me lose a little interest. It's not bad but noticable on the right side, if you look close (believe me I know where every little ding is). Both trailers tow nicely behind my 2003 Ford F250 Super Duty / 7.3 diesel 4 X 4, A little over kill doesn't hurt in some of the places I like to go prospecting and treasure hunting. I am a ham radio operator (call ABWU) and like to find remote sites to operate from as part of my preparing and practicing for setting up emergency communications in case of a disaster. At home I have a big garden every year and also enjoy fishing and hunting along with photography. I have the Argosy stripped down to the wood subfloor and am starting to re-upholster the seats and re-new the curtains. I plan on recovering the floor with wood laminate, new stove, counter top, replace water heater with on demand heater, Possibly replace the furnace. The battery maintainer isn't working so I have jury rigged a small trickle charger and solar panal through an out board charge controler until I can replace the unit. I don't know if I'll get it all done befor winter but if I want to take a trip I'll just hook it up and work on it in the camp ground. Sure a lot better than a tent. Now that I am thinking about it I'll try to take some before, in progress and after photos and try to figure out how and where to post them. There sure are a lot of nice people here with a world of information and idea. Thanks for being here.
