Hi, how many of those nice cars did you buy and are being shipped to your home? Glad you found a good dog sitter for Bandit; On our trip we only had to hire one for Dusty, but it sure was a relief, knowing that we could take a tour and not worry about him. One more stop on the way home and our random trip will be over.

So far we have resisted the urge to have a vintage tow vehicle to tow our vintage trailer but we haven't departed volo yet.

The lady in our park is in love with Bandit. Think the feeling is mutual. We have another couple of weeks. P

My Fantastik Vent repair a success.

I just finished replacing the circuit board in one of our Fantastik vents....it is the automatic rain sensor one with a remote control......Both of them have been acting up so I called them (we went right by the factory when we were in Michigan-darn it). They fed exed new remotes and circiuit boards...with the help of their tech support, I was able to replace the circuit board (not the rain sensor so hope it still works) and reprogram the remote......cross your fingers that it will close automatically if it rains......

I was between a rock and a hard place.....needing the fans to work but not having time to take the trailer to a repair shop and worried that the mobile repair people might not know how to fix it....I asked the tech support what would happen if I failed...he said there would be no failure so I ventured on. The hardest part was removing the connectors from the old circuit board....I did a few at a time (8 of them) so I wouldn't mix up where the go......hubby helped hand me screws and screw drivers.....not his thing to do.....

We leave Sunday for Madison.....paula

Smile Another custom Airstreamer

Today, Ed is speaking to a group of attorneys (NAELA) National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys about business continuation after a disaster.....and at breakfast we met a couple - both lawyers- who purchased a shell from Jackson Center in 2008, shipped it to Denver to Timeless Travel Trailers, had them completely customize the interior in hopes of someday living and working full time in their Airstream. They are from Knoxville, TN. You can find their trailer on the Timeless Travel Trailer website.....it looks wonderful.....

It is such a small world and little did we expect to be sharing Airstream build stories here in Chicago at the conference breakfast.

Oh, and Bandit is at the Fish Island Beach RV park in Volo with a nice lady who is dogsitting....

A cyclist nightmare

Had to share 2 more photos....the wheels are in the Garmin store on Michigan Avenue....the No Peddling sign was on the street here in Chicago....do you suppose they mean No Pedaling or Peddling? One can wonder.

Good job with the vent and I'm enjoying the pictures. Although I want to avoid that bike wreck!

Hey Paula,
You are right there where I grew up. I'm from Emmetsburg. My brother went to college in Storm Lake. The Iowa great lakes area is the best! Enjoy!
