Very Excited new Eddie Bauer Airstreamer Here :)

Hey all - been chomping at the bit to get on the forums and talk about my new baby.

Just finished the maiden voyage to escape the TX heat, and a short solo trip to see if a 5'2 feisty Irish gal could hitch and setup and tow alone. Once I got the running start and made it up into the F250 Crew Cab, the rest was easy

I'm sure you could use a good newbie laugh or two - so here's the blog I just started.
http://retro-gurl.blogspot.com

Stop by and say hi, would ya? Really looking forward to finding some Airstream buddies!
Thanks! Pinky

Hey Bruce: Looking at the TX calendar of events now

Looks like we have Airstreams and Pyrs in common. I have a 7 yr old male I rescued a few years back. He is a big old hard-headed baby. Yours is gorgeous!

Pinky

Welcome to the Airstream family. Looks like you are having lots of fun learning all about your Airstream. Congratulations on hooking up and unhooking all by your self.

My youngest son lives in Fortworth. Glad the heat finally broke for you all.

Dan

Hi Pinky!

We're picking up our 2012 EB on Thursday! It looks like (from the photos on your blog) that you've added an extra air conditioner. Did the single unit just not cut it? Is there anything else that you've felt like you needed to modify right away?

Hey Dan - thanks for the encouragement!

And yay for the Oregon crew and the new EB! I love mine to pieces. It's actually just the one a/c - but the dealer installed 2 toppers on the fantastic fans since I will be traveling with my dogs and want rain protection AND to leave the vents open full time in the TX heat, if needed.

Haven't added anything else to it really - just some stylistic stuff inside to organize and make it mine. I'll try to get some pictures of the details and post them for you. Holler if you have any questions on the EB. The learning curve for me has been swift, but I think I have the basics down.

Good luck to you and have fun!!

One more thought - mine did NOT come with the convection oven/micro combo. And part of me wishes it had. (Until I boondock and then I'll be happy for the LP stove)

DID get the dimmers and the blue ray - and they are both pretty great for ambiance. Dim the lights, open wine, turn on the surround sound and open the back "porch" and listen to the crickets or the rain - that's pretty darn awesome, for sure.

I love the Internationals too - good for you guys! Have you joined up with any of the TX groups for rallies or campouts yet? I'm starting to look around and do just that.

Thinking about upgrading to the propride - how's it working out for you? Is it difficult to hitch the stinger to the trailer?

Hahaha - it's a vague memory, for sure. Sounds something like a cow peeing on a flat rock, but softer - if memory serves. Had to go up to Taos NM to find some rain and a chance to sleep with the windows open - and not sweat to death in our sleep. How bad is it down in Corpus?

(And what is the AIR number in your signature - something I should join?)
