What a great shot Chuck! Beautiful background with sky, interesting plane and look at that silver bullet. Makes me want to get out of this office, go home, pack up and find a place to go (any place)!

Chuck,
Great shot of the scenery and your Safari. What are the two dark objects front and back on the top of your unit? Vents?
Dan

yeah, those are vent-covers. "maxi-vent" (?) something like that. I've seen them on alot of SOB units.....

I think they sort of look "out of place", but they were there when I bought the trailer. The do allow you to leave the vents open while traveling, or in the rain.

Foreign language

Chris,
Sorry, but I always have trouble with foreign languages. Me and my D/W have been over to your side of the world three times and I always have to ask her "What did they say" after a conversation. She's better at translating than I am. Yes I have a D/D and two D/S's. No dog, but this time of year a lot of ticks. Weather has been very hot until lately and now we seem to have a rain shower every afternoot. Keep up the jolly ol stuff.
Dan

Heloo Chris,
We loved all of our trips to England and Scotland. You have a very nice country. I think it will last a while longer. Just don't start no more wars with the USA.
We have admired Airstreams from a distance for quite a while. Only three months ago found the one we were looking for. A 1971 23' Safari. Since then we have been busy cleaning and fixing it for the road. Not there yet, but soon. Have learned an enormous amount from this forum. Don't think I could have made it if I hadn't found it some months ago. Wonderful info on how to fix and enjoy.
We live just outside Nashville (Music City USA). Lots of pickin' and grinnin' around here. Almost every waiter in the restaurants is from somewhere else and hoping to hit it big in songwriting or singing. I happens overnight.
Good to "hear" from you.
Dan

Hi Chris,
I'm in Tullahoma which is just 30 miles or so from McMinnville. I go through there every once in awhile when headed to Knoxville, TN. I have some hunting buddies who live in McMinnville, one of which is a professional bowler we call "Slim" because he is about 6'7" tall and another named Clarence who owned a 31' Airstream until last year. Slim also is into 60's classic cars.

No music

Hello Chris,
I can't even play the radio very well. My wife said that if I ever try to sing again, she's going to leave. Haven't done any singing lately, but do a lot of quiet humming just to stay in practice. No musical talent for me. I am an artist and figure that talent was passed on to me instead of musical abilities.
We have traveled most of the UK and loved it. Edinburgh is a lovely city. So is London. We love the museums. However, you really must do something about all those narrow roads in the country. White knuckles every mile of the trip. Especially those 6'6" roadways. The last time we were there were in a small town called Dent. Stopped a fellow who actually wore a monicle and asked for directions. His first comment was "how did you get here?" Couldn't really say. I did wish we had a Northstar system on the car like the Cadillacs do over here. The gal on the phone would still be searching for where we were. Can't get there from here.
Have a good day,
Dan
