It's COLD up here in Sacto..time to get out the thermals here and turn on the heater! as far as the Safari, it's ready to go down the road!..My new comforter came in, and hopefully it won't be cold where the snow birds will be joining us, I'm sure down in the desert!

Cold here today. I built the first fire in the fireplace today.....no, not in the Tradewind. The weather people in Sacramento say that I we may wake up to some snow in the morning. I was wondering when that HOT July would end.

Thank you all

For your kind words on me attaining the status of Rivet Master.

My wife made me a cape and hat and yes I now have preffered parking at all events at my home.

Everyday I go out to the garage and command my rivets. I am attempting have them perform tricks and feats of amazement. So far things are not going well. I have tried ordering, demanding, explaining, begging and showing them the tricks I want them to do. Maybe I need more rivets on my cape so they know I am THE Rivet Master.

Hi Milo,

Maybe you need a new technique for the little guys!...ever try calling them: 'rivet, rivet, rivet'?..maybe that'll work

Congrats on 500+ posts

Milo-

Thanks for advice on winterizing.. We too added an extra fleece blankie, and tested the furnace just to be sure it is still operational.. Pretty much winterized for now, though I can admit that 8 years ago we "lost" the Thetford toilet valve to a crack during a rare cold night when temps plummeted below 30 degrees, here in northern Calif... (Not as cold as Guy in northern CA mountains...)

As for Rivet Mastering, just be sure never to confuse "Rivet Master" with "Wife Master"... Consequences could be harmful...

McG

The problem with trying to effectively order rivets about is that the sound is much like ribbit so the lil fellers (and feller'ettes) could be confused. They don't have the legs to hop. You may need to whistle. I think the 7 dwarves had the right idea....although I don't remember seeing any Airstreams in that movie. Must have been an oversight on Walt's part.

Now, for those of you who wish an education on the proper tools for winter use just let us know. I'm sure there are a few folks on the Forum who have the joys of snow close at hand and who can share their techniques and effective use of these survival tools.

I think the best winter tool I have found yet is a map of the southern States

Grab your sunglasses and your Suntan lotion....

Our Lower and Mid Deserts are an excellant choice as is the Ocean...

There's the infamous Slab City away down south...

Or Death Valley but I recomend the Panamint Valley next door...

Of course Palm Springs...

Or if you prefer the Beaches...

San Diego or the wine country of Temecula is also just around the corner...

Be glad you guys aren't in Minnesota! Our two seasons are WINTER and ROAD REPAIR! Yup, you guessed it... they also overlap! We're either freezing our AS while sitting in storage, or beating them to death on frost damaged raods!

skykingpilot,

My father-in-law, from Park Rapids, always said "ten months of winter and two months of poor sleding"
