Everything has to GO!

We are selling our house and all the parts we have accumulated have to go.

We don't have time to list them in the classifieds, so we are looking for any one who may restore or fix RV's - Airstreams that would like a supply of miscellaneous parts.

We have vintage parts left from a 61 Overlander, and 63 Globetrotter (not many). As well many parts from a stripped out 1999 27' Excella to include windows, doors, cabinets, bathroom and kitchen Dinette credenza etc. We pretty much took it down to the frame and sold the frame and took the aluminum to the recyclers.

Ideally we would like to have a set price ($2K-3K obo) for the lot and someone come and pick it all up. So preferably someone from Ontario CAN.

We are putting our house up for sale Mid June and need the outbuildings to look uncluttered.

So if anyone knows of anyone who is into fixing RV's or if you have a project on the go and looking for some interior key pieces - PM me ASAP

Working on a parts listing and have photos available - if you are serious - no tire kickers or nosey parkers please - just a waste of time which we do not have.

We can deliver if need be - but only in Ontario (Ottawa to London) We are located just north east of Peterborough.

Thanks

Hope everyone has been well and have had a chance to get out and travel.

On a side note - Peter has had two Islet Cell Transplants and is now Diabetes FREE!!! I have gone back to College taking photojournalism and just completed my first year of two.

We have to downsize and move out of the country side to make things a little easier for both of us.

PS - NO our CCD International is not for sale and neither is the 63 Globetrotter.

Any leads would be very much appreciated. My e-mail is still the same spkallaste@sympatico.ca if someone wishes to reach me direct.

You can obtain all the information you need from this web site.

University of Alberta Clinical Islet Transplant Program

It is called the Edmonton Protocol

Peter received 520,000 cells his first surgery Feb 14 - going from about 58 units of insulin to 30 a day. It is not unusual to have what they call a "top up" surgery if you do really well in the first. They kept him out their and put him back on the list. He had his second surgery with another 470,000 islet cells infused on March 28. By the time he returned home April 19th he is completely insulin independent - no needles and no insulin type of pills.

Although he is treated just like a heart or lung transplant patient the surgery is non-invasive. A small incision between the rib the infusion goes through the portal vein into the liver. He was only in the hospital for 2-3 days each time. However you have to remain in Edmonton for 4-6 weeks to undergo a strict medication regime

He is on anti rejection and immuno-suppressant drugs for the rest of his life. But already - compared to the problems he faced on a daily basis with sever diabetes he has absolutely no regrets.

He has met several of the early patients from 1999-2005 and they are still insulin independent and have no other complications from the procedure.

Although in Canada I do believe they take a number of international patients. But they will be able to refer you to US facilities that have been trained in their procedure.

Good luck.

Note this procedure is only targeted at Type 1 Diabetics - with hypoglycaemia unawareness. A fatal progression where the body can not feel the low blood sugars coming on. Peter's diabetes had progressed to that stage about two years ago and it was only a matter of time before he may have experienced a coma that could have been life threatening.

Wow.... some side note Sharon! I'm so happy for BOTH of you. It's got to be great not worrying about diabetes. I hope you'll both enjoy traveling and kayaking and everything else that comes with downsizing.
Congrats!

Paula

You will have to give me a few days...we are right in the middle of a clean out project over the next few days. I know I have photos of all the items - I just have to hunt them down in my billions of gigs of photos ha.

I will most likely post some in the classifieds....I just wanted to feel out the forum to see if there was anyone that might want the whole lot at once...

Still purging...

Have not forgot about this thread....

Almost there to a point where we can haul out the airstream parts and photograph them and post - most likely will post on the classifieds.

I have a list of those who have contacted me and will get back to you on your questions in a few more days.

Thanks for your patience....
