Streamin season

Like many of you, we are beginning to think about Airstreamin' season (my wife does tax returns, so it never opens for us before April 15!). We dropped in on Clayton today, just to check things out. Everything looked great. No leaks or rodents. Some idiot did leave the battery switch on when I parked it last, and the battery is dead, but I don't think we want any blame games here, do we?

We also have a new tug this year - a new Chevrolet K2500 diesel crew cab. I will be interested to see how it does as well.

I was reminded once again how much I enjoy our time in our coach. It is not like the feeling of being home, more like being in a special place. Anyway, I am anxious to get out and get away!

Mark

I know the feeling...everytime I step foot in Maxwell it makes me smile! Spring is just around the corner...still a bit too chilly for de-winterizing here.

Streamen

We are eager to get out in our AS also. I had new tires put on yesterday and will hook the water system up this week and repack the wheel bearings next weekend and then perhaps we will take a weekend trip shortly. It has been wet and rainey here in Western WA. We are thinking of a trip from here to Yellowstone and back in late May or early June. Anybody been there that time of the year?

March is a great season start

Just finished a week-long computer rally, next week is a unit rally, and the week after that is the week-long Region 9 rally. We'll spend more than half of March in the Airstream.

Wink Quit bragging John!

Some of us have "real winters"...

But we'll be camping all through the summer months...

Rally time

Yep, we here in the south are truly blessed, We had a GREAT rally with two Units attending in Myrtle Beach SC.

Once again the Carolinas rocked the WBCCI.

I love this club.

like yours?

Mark, just this weekend we test drove a Silverado Duramax Turbo Diesel 2500HD (I think that was all of the title!). We currently pull an SOB with a V8 Toyota LandCruiser and know that we really need a good upgrade. We never considered trucks before because they always rode so uncomfortably--but not this one! Is this like the tow vehicle you describe? If so, please let us know what you think of it. Does yours have "Quadrasteer"? (??? I can't believe I'm "talking truck!")) What is that like? Can you compare the driving when pulling and when not? Thanks. If none of this applies, please ignore all my silly newbie questions!

I too am amazed at the ride quality. Firm, to be sure, but sports car firm, not rides-like-a-truck firm.

John Irwing (Pahaska) has one of these as well, and has had it for several months. He can probably give you better information.

As this takes us away from this topic, I have sent you an email - please check your pm box. If anyone else is interested, I will open a new topic on the 2500HD in the towing forum.
