For some of us it happens faster. This may explain the QC problems at the factory.

There's also the Verandah, a decent restaurant about a block from the service center building and a Subway.

The Vernadah, Jackson Center, Ohio September 2009

In 1955 my Mother, Helen Byam Schwamborn, and I arrived in Jackson Center for the first time. We stayed at Mrs. Rogers Boarding House. Prior to that both Andy and Tim Charles stayed there. And possibly even Wally Byam, don't know but possible.

Before Mrs. Rogers had her boarding house the building was a school house.

Today it is the Verndah. This is one great upscale resturant. They are open for lunch during the week and on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday they are open for great dinner meals. You can check with them for their hours and days.

This is a stopping off place for dinner for many western Ohio residents.

Try it, great food, hospitable, and nice ambience.

Bicycle museum

If you have more time to kill go and see the Bicycle Museum at New Bremen. It is about 20 min. away maybe. That was a cool place to see! Nice community.

John Glenn, Astronaut Museum

Just up the road is the town of Wapakoneta, birth town of John Glenn and a museum celebrating him.

Thanks PeeWee, I've just added this place to my itenerary. I like good food in places with history.

I think you meant to say birthplace/museum of "Neil Armstrong" (first man to walk on the moon), versus John Glenn (first American to orbit the earth).

Pee Wee,

I think you mean the home of Neil Armstrong. Senator Glenn was from Cambridge, Ohio. Hey, they were both NASA astronauts and got a ride in an Airstream motor coach.

Great shot of resturant, if you look at the building behind it, that is the museum, former church.

Jackson Center Seventh Day Baptist Church

Next to the Verandah Eatery is the Jackson Center Historical Society Museum. It is the converted church.

The religious beliefs were different than most Baptists. They, like the Seventh Day Adventists, celebrated their faith on Saturday. The may have been the only Baptists to do this in the state of Ohio, or they were the last church to do so.

Interesting side line about the musuem.

The Verandah is in a beautiful Victorian house and very well kept.

The museum is only open 5 days a year and only for a few hours each of those days. They are something like May through September. We would have liked to see it, but we'd have to stay about 7 months.

If you take away the porch, and take away the gazebo, you have a rectangular structure. Stage 1 school, stage 2 boarding house, and stage 3 a resturant. Amazing what a little bit of carpentry will do to jass up a brick building.

We visited our trailer in the repair facility today. We are currently staying at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, about 40 miles south. The floor had been repaired and new covering installed. About 50% of the kitchen furniture and bath had been reinstalled. Definite progress. Our assigned mechanic, Jon, gave me a rundown of all the places where he found some leaks that needed caulking. He had put the trailer in their water flood facility to find vulnerable spots. There were about 10 leaky areas he found and had to repair. My embarrassment is that at least two of these, I had inspected a couple of weeks ago, I thought very carefully, but missed the fact that they might be vulnerable to leaks.

He said we might be able to get the trailer back Wednesday at the latest. That's a little over 7 days of work they've had to do on our trailer.

TankerIP, I am glad they are making progress.

If you don't mind, could you ask him some things for me and others here ?

Could you ask him the best way to find these leaks sooner than later ?

Any tricks ?

Especially the rear trunk area as that seems to be a very bad design area and we need to know a good solid fix.

Thank you.

Robbie R.

I have asked the question of how to absolutely detect leaks, several times at Jackson Center without any real good answer. They just don't have an answer. Obviously if you have carpet, then you can feel around for moistness. If you have linoleum or hardwood, you then have to use your ingenuity to sample areas for wetness of the subfloor. Maybe we can collectively dream up a system. I started a thread for that at:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f456...one-58195.html

Certainly, we have to be vigilant and regularly inspect our seals and caulks.
