I'm glad to see that you guys came forward and posted on her defense. I have said over and over here that I made a mistake with this trailer. Most of the money spent on the trailer was my aunts.. she thought it was a good idea to do this, and we both admit we should have studied up on it more prior to jumping into this. I have admitted that all to you...
I have to pay her back every dime she sent.. So, not only did I spend months wiht this trailer, but I will end up paying her back, if the airstream doesn't sell for what she put into it.
It's my problem. I was not complaining. But I was honest about what I knew about the trailer. This is rediculous that this thread keeps coming back to me or summerkid when I was just sharing a story. NOT asking anyones opinion. If I wanted an opinion, I would have asked for one. I was merely sharing a story... that's all.
When Summerkid was ignorant to another member, that's when I lost it. No one deserves any of the ignorance in this thread. I keep trying to turn it around, being silly, and posting pics, but now we're back to this. THIS IS CRAZY. I know many of you don't agree with trying to sell this airstream. But I have no choice...
AGAIN< that was a statement, not looking for more opinions here..
Summerkid has continued to criticise people, when a majority of us are here to have fun, learn, and not be put down.....
If she's not in this to stir things up, then why does she keep coming back. I started this thread, and I keep trying to veer if off and let it go... but one little mention of it, and I get worked up again.
That's great that she really has an airstream in storage...we were all wondering..OK, a majority of us were wondering. She has so much to say for someone who doesn't have possession of their airstream. I on the other hand try to share all of my experiences, both possitive AND negative.
Trust me, I wanted nothing more than to go hide after this whole thing happened. But I decided to press on, make the most of it, and go to the VAC rally, where people heard the story, and then I decided I might as well tell you all.
Whatever her problem is with me, lets just get it out here in the open, so we, including her can all post in peace, without being afraid to tell a story, etc....
I shouldn't have said what I did, but many of us were thinking it. I have recieved a lot of support, and so has she... but lets give it up...
You dont' think that I should have taken that man's money. My aunt was there ,a nd if I wouldn't have, she would have. I never should have gotten involved with this project, but I am glad I did, to learn what I learned, but never expected that the hardest part would be your criticism....Crap, every time I type a word in, I wait for summerkid to 'edit' my bad spelling... Ishouldn't have to worry about that...
So, I would like to say to summerkid... If you would like to discuss this, please, let's do...
Otherwise, let it go, adn stop harrassing me and the people that are on my side, realizing that I DID say I made a mistake, and I am duely paying for it.
People keep saying that you are just trying to get me upset, and I can only assume they are right, since this is not the first time this has happened between us. I guess the only other step is to hit ignore, but I still value much of what you have to say, adn don't feel that I shoudl block any part of the conversation.
Like I said earlier.... "two tears in a bucket....."
Now lets get on with talking about Rt. 66 adventures....
