Same drill here ....

After sitting for 5 months we have been busy getting things ready so we can hit the open road on Thursday.

We spent the day yeaterday cleaning out the trailer and truck and repacking everything ... getting rid of all the junk we don't need or have accumulated since November.

Just got back from having an oil change done on the truck ... I'll be installing a set of Bilstein shocks this afternoon.

The big wash and Walbernize will take place tomorrow. It's been fun watching everyone go through the same drill here during tha past few weeks.

The Snowbirds are packing up and leaving Arizona in droves ... this park is just about empty. Can't wait to hit the road again.

We are headed out right after the Final Four. I'll get the Classic home on Sunday, thank goodness for daylight savings time, and will probably get it loaded up next week during the evenings. No time to Walbernize so I'll do the wash, tire pressure check, and wheel lug check before I leave. We will load back in all the winterized stuff. Since our campground for the unit rally is a full hookup, I'll probably dewinterize the system there upon arrival. Hmm....good thing I did this post, I also need to fill one of the propane tanks. Almost empty. Heat pump and electric water heater save a lot of gas.

Well, one weekend down, a few more to go. I visited the Safari a few days ago and almost forgot how big 25' really is. I opened the door to the garage and this big silver thing was looking me dead on kind of like it was saying...what the hell are you looking at? Nothing quite like an Airstream with an attitude.....ok, I know, cabin fever is in full gear today....but what do you want from me, it's almost 60 out today!

The "Big Twinkie" is off to camp with the AS restoration man. It is so lonesome here without it. It was almost 80 out today and when I think of what I could be doing I miss the trailer. He is now locked in a yard with several Airstreams, but he's looking good. Actually for my money, he's the best looking thing there. My new Tundra pulled him like a dream (with no trailer brake installed yet). I don't have sway bars or an equalizing hitch, but we had no trouble on two lanes or interstate. Do I really need to have the sway bars? I've been thinking about getting them. I miss my Argosy.

Sounds like you all have a bit more to do than just simple gettin' ready for the season.

Like Pahaska we use our trailer year round. It's not that warm here but we're about 7hrs from where it is. I use several gallons of the pink stuff over the winter, thank goodness for Walmart. Our neighbor calls our outings a "monthly vacation". During the winter we try to make a trip to Quartzsite, Death Valley to the 49er's encampment and a couple trips to Phoenix or Tucson. We're headed to Tucson sat. DW has one weeks vacation left so we're headed for some sunshine. After June things will change for us as she retires then and we'll be FREE!!!-----------Pieman

You know, speaking of the "pink stuff" (no, not Pepto), I found some mint flavored stuff at the local Ace Hardware. I tried this for the first time and will let you know if it made any difference. For those that know all about that taste no matter how many times you flush it out, might appreciate this info. I should know in a week or two.

Major spring fever here - we actually took a day trip a couple of weeks ago to all the state parks in a 150 mile radius - just to check em out - pathetic!
So... the bearings are repacked - new seals, systems are flushed, and ready to go, Tomorrow - the galley gets restocked.

Do you think good weather will come quicker if I put a plastic flamingo outside?
