not exactly new

Hello to Everyone,

I just recently found this introduction page in the forum, though I have been viewing for years.

I joined back in 2006. A day or so afterward I unexpectedly had to moved back home to take care of my Dad, when my Mom got sick and passed. They are both gone now. It was a hectic time and I actually forgot I had joined! A few weeks ago I re-found the forum member list and was supprised to see myself listed as a member. It seems like I find something new almost every time I login now. I semi-retired this year (only one day per week when I want to) and have more time to look now.

I have owned an Airstream trailer of some type almost continuiously since the early 1990's, popup trailer and tent camping prior. I sold the first two Excellas as I was able to get a nicer one. Two months ago we got broad sided by semi in VA, while returning home from MI. We totaled both the 2010 Silverado and the 1999 Excello 31' (my favorite). Fortunately we were not hurt, just very sore. Since the wreck, we have replaced the TV and recently purchased a 2000 Safari 25C.

We are headed to FL after the holidays. We are planning Yellowstone in the summer. Judy and I hope to meet some of you in our travels.

Happy Holiday to All!

Introductions at any time are great! I'm not sure I have done it myself -on this page- or not...

Sorry about loosing your last rig but hoping you are enjoying the new one just as much! Airforums Rally in the panhandle, CanOpener - January 6-9. Sounds like it will be fun. Maybe you can make it down that way....

Welcome...................Back to Forums

Good to see you back. My sister lives in Cornelius (Lake Norman). Having visited, I can say you live in a very pretty area of the country.

Welcome back, A W, and sorry to hear that about that accident. But you're back on the road now, good to hear, and rollin'!

Keep us up to date with photos as you travel or work on your trailer, won't you?

Greeting from Michigan,

It seems that strange things happen to people the visit MI. Must have something to do with all the rusting factories lol. Glad to here you are all ok. Maybe if you come our way again give us a shout. Would be glad to let you park for a day or two. We are only 6 country miles from Frankenmuth (MI most visited town).

Everyday is a Saturday
