Just got back from a long weekend at Nehalem Bay State Park. Halfway through the mountains on the way out Friday night, the wiper motor burnt out. It was raining dogs, cats and hamsters. We decided to try to make it to somewhere we could stay until daylight. 20 white-knuckle miles later...

I can tell you Rainex is good stuff, but you still need wipers. Pucker factor was at 11.5 and the scale only goes to 10.

We got the wiper motor replaced and the rest of the weekend was just lovely! A five minute walk up and over the dunes in back of our campsite and we were on the beach. Something about watching those rollers come in puts all the day-to-day doo doo in perspective.

Sorry, I forgot to take the camera to the beach each & every time. DOH!

Very nice park. Well maintained, open year 'round, right off the beach. We're going back in December.

I can sympathize with the wiper motor issue. Mine is in today having it changed, as well as the fuel pump. Man, are those pumps ever expensive.

Yup. I understand the design logic of putting the pump in the fuel tank, but hoo boy, sure makes it spendy when its r & r time!

The other is from the Graveyard tour - this is "The Turning Angel" that is the title of a Greg Isles Book. She was placed to remember 5 ladies that died in an explosion and supposedly she turns to watch you pass by.

I thought that was an SOB camper in the background...oh, you mean further in the background. I never look that far beyond an Airstream!

Just got back from staying with 5 airstream trailers, our Moho and found 2 vintage trailers down the road from us..........and the best was Saturday night around the fire we saw another 345 Moho coming down the road that we were camped on Made a new friend and hope to see them again. Beautiful weather and good friends both old and new.

This months trip was to visit family in Greenville and we decided to stay 20 miles away at Lery Percy State park. 15 or so campsites, super clean, oxbow lake, cabins, park office with a snack bar. We were 1 of 2 RV's there so basically we had the place to ourself.
Sunday morning was great for a walk in the woods or along the edge of the lake.

Oh Yeah, It was our first outing with the new interior. The flooring works great, easy to sweep up all of the 'nature' that gets inside. The recliners are really comfortable ( I fell asleep in mine Saturday night ) and the tilt up bed has a huge amount of storage underneath.
We arrived home about 2:00 and it was 78 degrees so we did the unthinkable-

yup-

we stripped the clearcoat from the front endcap

WOW - now I have to strip the rest of the thing!

It's the little people that talk in my head

Nah, you were correct, a 4+ foot diameter cypress tree on the lake edge because everyone knows the little people don't like to have their photo taken

Gene, since you asked, we went to a fellow Airstreamer's house for a Christmas party/dinner on Sunday. I hope that isn't the high point of the week here...
