Thanks again for all the relplies. I have another question. It was suggested communicate through forums. Where and how do I do this? Do I go to another page or do it right here or get into the right catagory of what I need? Also, how do I change and add a picture to my profile? I, besides being new to this forum, am not very computer savvy. Thanks,

What was being suggested was that you start a thread and post to it as a travel journal or "blog" or web log of your travels. We enjoy reading about others' travels when we are not traveling ourselves.

Photographs are easy. Below the text box you will see a button that says manage attachments in the additional options box. Click on this button and you will see a series of text boxes with a browse button next to them. Click on the browse button and navigate to the folder where you have the photo file you want to add to your post. Select the photo and click open in the dialog box. Repeat this with as many photos as you wish to add to your post. When finished you will click the upload button to complete the process. Your photos will have to meet the requirements listed in the attachment box (less than a certain number of bytes and less than a certain widthXheight) in order to be uploaded to your post. Too large and it won't work.

Hope this helps. If not, there are some better instructions in the first forum in the forums section.

Thanks for all your information. Perhaps you can answer a few additional questions. If I ask for help on a particular problem or directions etc, where do I post and how? How do I put a in a picture on the left side of page in my profile? Do I go to this page or to a a particular thread as you call them? I am not very computer literate and hope you take the time to answer. Thanks, Ted

PS. I need to change the "TTed" to plain Ted. I don't know how the TTed got in to begin with and my profole does not show this information.

Ooops, I just noticed you want to add a photo to your avatar. That is done in your UserCP section found in the blue bar above using a similar method only with one photo and with a photo of lesser bytes.

If you click on the "Forums" tab at the top of your screen there are all kinds a categories for you to browse or select from when starting a new (or finding an old) thread. They are kinda lumped together in categories (forums) and sub-forums, then within each of those there are threads pertaining to the topics. Sometimes they get miscatagorized but the MODS will move them to the right category if/when found.

To start any new thread, select a forum that is most descriptive of the topic of the thread you want ot start, then click the "New Thread" button on the top left below the blue bar.

For a road trip, I would suggest the "On the Road" forum...

Use Lexan instead of plexiglass, it is not as prone to cracking. But any kind of plastic may blow out taking the brunt of the apparent wind pressure towing at highway speeds without a rock guard.

If you are ever out to Storrie Lake and see a old Airstream around a bunch of catamarans it's probably me

Thanks to you all and the moderator.
I have so many questions but have enough information to tide me over for a while. I will explore all the options on my own now.
Oh, oh, One more....How ddoes one measure your Airstream length? Bumper to end of tongue or rear bumper to front of living space? When asked on the enrollment form a 25 foot Ambasador (I thought I had) was not an option. They only list a 29 foot Ambasador. ???

Airstreams are measured from "bumper to ball".

Hi, and thanks, Marshall. I will keep an eye out for you at Storrie Lake. I used to have a 14 foot Hobie Cat. It was great fun. Do you go there in the spring or through out the summer?
I thought of using an alternative to glass but I got a price to replace with the same safety glass for $60 to $70. if I remove the window and take it to his shop. I think I will take this route because it will be more ridgid and stay original. I am worried about the curved corner glass at the corners. I am thinking of glueing a thin ($8.) Lexan over this curved glass. If I glue above the glass onto the Al. frame which stands out about 1/8 in. from the glass. It will have an air space that will take a rock or BB without hurting the window. Along with the glue, I can drill and tap the tinest holes for 4 screws to hold it in place. What do you think? I would hate it if those windows broke. Very hard to replace.

Thanks, Richard. I just inherited 4 more feet. My paperwork (title) shows no information on length.

I would install a rock guard (shades) over the window. They protect the windows, flip up when parked and look good...
