Heading to the mountains. Hawley Lake on the White Mountain Apache Reservation. A long weekend with my fly fishing buddies and a couple of Airstreams too. The lake is at 8200 feet and the weather is unpredictable.

We'll pull all of maybe 20 miles over to the Miller Creek RV Park on Hwy. 281 just outside Johnson City, TX, meeting up with 3 rigs from our Texas Highland Lakes Unit plus a friend pulling a huge SOB 5th wheel up from the coast. A few of us got spots overlooking the spring-fed creek and under beautiful trees. We'll probably gather, cook & eat at those rigs, for the shade. Texans like our shade!! I'll be out in the open prairie, so my sat dish will work just fine. Should be there 4 or 5 days of fun & fellowship together.

The following weekend I'm off to Hillsboro, TX, staying in the North Texas Airstream Community (NTAC) - a beautiful destination if you haven't visited there yet. Really nice folks & a great setup. I'm going to Hillsboro to attend a fraternity reunion on a friend's ranch a few miles outside the town. I'll drive back & forth every morning & evening. Most of the men are staying in the local motels. I feel sorry for them already. I come 'home' to a space I know is clean, welcoming and comforting. They stay in rooms where nobody wants to know what's growing on every surface (warning - per the TV investigators, don't use the paper-wrapped glasses in the bathrooms!!).

We're heading for the high country on 149 just north of Creede, CO. Expecting wind, snow, rain and T-storms. Did I leave anything out? Isn't that what holiday weekends are for...can't wait.

We're already here in Maine. Tomorrow we're heading up to the Baxter State Park area for some serious Moose hunting (with camera).

Hi Bob; I have a very exciting weekend coming up. My wife Kay and I plan to spend couple of days in our basement in attempt to sew upholstery cushions for our new wrap around sofa for our Argosy. Poised and ready I will try my hand at something I have no experience at all. We intend to test our commercial grade Singer sewing machine. Our boat business has been extremely busy which did not leave me much time to work on the Arg past my 14 hour days at the shop. We picked up two custom made mattress's which cost us $900.00. While we are very close to being done, I need about 50 hours to get it road ready. In the mean time I will be thinking of you having fun in the Sun while we suffer in the basement. Enjoy your weekend. Thanks "Boatdoc"

We'll be joining Whitsend and Pahaska at Miller's Creek RV Park near Johnson City along with another Airstream who doesn't post to these forums and friends we've known for years who will be in a fifthwheel SOB as posted by Whitsend in post #44. Its always fun to share time with old friends.

We recently lost our little poodle after an extended illness from which she just could not recover in spite of the very best in Veterinary care. This will be our first trip in 12 years without her. We'll likely get a little misty eyed as we pull away from the house in the morning. It has already happened as we located and removed her medications, toys, clothes and other items from the trailer.

We're not going anywhere! Just for starters, Maria is off in Europe to see to her elderly mother. But more to the point, there's a major mountain biking event here in Angel Fire (the "Chili Challenge"), and we'll be practically drowned in tent-camping kiddos on very expensive mountain bikes.

We will be in Custer, SD for the weekend. It's predicted rain over the weekend, but it doesn't matter. We are staying here another week or two to enjoy the outdoors and daytrips to Deadwood, Sturgis, Spearfish, etc. Never been to SD before, but beautiful country!

Everybody have fun. We too like to stay home on the holidays and camp out in the back yard, then travel when everyone goes back to their own back yard.

Nowhere! I have 3 braking assembly plates that have to be replaced and the 4 new rims with new tires will be picked up tomorrow. After this, it's work in the garden.

There already..

Lynn and I are there already. Washington DC. We flew in last Tue. 5/13 and been having a ball visiting our Son. Tomorrow morning, Friday May 23 at 10 am we will attend his re-enlistment ceremony on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Todd is re-enlisting for his 15th, 16th and 17th years in the Navy. He is presently based at Betheda Naval Hospital. He is a hospital corpsman. During the past week we have visited most all the sights on 'The Mall' spent a day in Baltimore and a very moving day at Gettysburg. Lynn and I fly back to California next Wed. 5/28. The DC area is a wonderful place to experience.

14 hour days? Hmmm... that STILL leaves 10 hours for working on the Argosy. Yer slippin' Doc!

I spent an of hour yesterday installing my belt line moulding. I bought a roll of vinyl insert from extrude-a-trim.com. I bought their high profile thinking it would look great (which it does) not thinking about the clearance issue with the insert on the door as well as the trailer. I wound up taking the insert out of the extrusion on the door. One more issue to work out... At least the high profile insert makes a dandy door bumper! There is no way for the door to mess up the new paint. We also primed and shot the Argosy emblems the same blue as our trim. After it was dry, Liz got the job of filing the paint off the raised portion of the lettering - they look great!
