Mrs. Mod, I have been thinking of doing this for quite some time too! I will look forward to hearing how you like it...

We've only had "Ted" a few months, so yikes where do I start? We're taking off to a family wedding in the Bay Area in a week, so I just flashed serious plastic on Amazon and ordered a pressure regulator, water filter, propane tank and hose for the BBQ, and a Yamaha 2400W generator.

We're also boaters, and we were in Anacortes in the San Juans earlier this summer. We happened to get there during the Anacortes Arts Festival, which is the town's biggest annual event. We found an artist named Paul Sloan, who does fun, whimsical paintings. We found a painting of an Airstream as an aquarium! We just loved it, since it combines the Airstream with our love of the water! It was framed and reasonably priced, so we bought it for the trailer! It's kinda big - we're hoping we can find room to hang it. It's a limited edition print, and there's an image on his website, but it's copyrighted and I can't embed the image here. Here's the link. Go have a look! He did a limited edition of 250 prints about 10 years ago, and he still has a few left.

Wanderlust

His home page is here:

Artwork by Seattle romantic acrylic surrealist Paul Sloan

Look at his schedule - he goes to numerous art shows in the SW during the winter. His stuff is fun!

Started the conversion to a SeeLevel 714 tank level system today.

Removed the dinette and sofa to install new flooring Thursday with new hickory floor/wall round trim.

Converted both air conditioners today to the old drain pan system and the noise reduction was very noticeable.

Got the parts tonight to extend the factory 4" tube under the trailer for the flag poles.

Upgrading all power outlets in the trailer to GFI hospital grade tomorrow. Putting switched outlets at both televisions so power can be totally off when boon docking and using battery power.

Starting repairs to other three pocket door walls due to extremely poor construction.

Creating custom hickory stands for the soap my wife preferrs and getting rid of the plunger style dispensers that fail after a few months of use.

Nights cool enough to allow use of said blanket?
