Levon,
I might be heading up to "Bah Habah" in a couple of weeks. (I have reservations, anyway....might get cancelled...but that's another subject). Not nearly as far for me, though So where did you stay? how was it?

-Chuck

We have 7 Cl-215s and had 3 shut downs this season. I had one. One of the high pressure plugs on the nose case blew and was going to dump all our oil so I had to shut it down. What a mess.

Chuck....We stayed at Bar Harbor Campground, the closest one to Acadia Park. The grounds were nice as well as the people running it. The lobster was great. If you are a morning person, check out the sunrise from atop Cadillac Mtn. If you like light houses travel a little further North...Quoddy Light.....very scenic.

O.K. I really feel out of place. I can't fly a plane, I'm only 30 years old, and I have no good stories.
I just started camping, I farm in northwest Iowa and don't have time to travel. Self-employed farmer means I work almost 24/7. I went through a divorce 2 years ago and I have four young kids. I have my kids every other weekend so I rely on my retired dad to run the farm on that weekend. I thought since I can't work with four kids under foot, why not try camping. Found a used airstream and thought what the hay. At the time I didn't know the history behind airstreams. Just last week I put on a program at my local Kiwanis on the history of Wally Byam and the development of airstreams over the years. I have even started restoring mine. Just a young pup but learning fast.....

Hey y'all,

I am finaly turning 40 and have always wanted to be 40. Now I'll be taken seriously! I am the baby of my family (5 girls and me, the only boy) Yes bathroom privacey is important. I have always graviatated toward older people and have always said I was born an old soul. I can understand the attraction that the flyers and plane enuthuesist have for the airstream, But where are the bubble heads? Airstreams - submarines, oh ya, there is a simularity. I was not able to join the service because of a birth defect, so the next best thing was to build the men/women the best machines that I could. I spent 15 yrs. as a nuc. pipefitter for the Dept. of the Navy. Have worked on all types of boats, from fast attack subs to carriers and loved every minute of the cold war. After shipyard was closed I started a test lab and test all fuel chimineys and other hearth products. Married to Mrs.Ratt, (who is also older then me) for 15yrs. no kids,3 dogs, 2 parrots and lots of fish. Everyone here seems very nice and I cannot wait to meet y'all on the road. - Ray

Be glad were not a nuke boat sailor. It was more than an adventure, it was an ordeal ( and a waste of life). Learn to fly planes if you want more.

Underwater Navy

I have a grandson out somewhere at sea on his first cruise in a brand new sub, USS Connecticut. I wonder sometimes how he is faring. He has been gone for months now.

Not my cup of tea!

Nuke program

Same thing happened to my grandson. He came from a small country school and he couldn't hack the math in the Nuke school. Just didn't have the background. He did well on everything else, tho.

He went from there to Groton and got on a brand new sub. They were running trials on the sub while he was in school. He said that he liked the first, short crew-training cruises he was on. Some hazing, but he's big enough that no one trifles with him much.

I flew fighters, but no way I would want to be on a sub. To each his own, I guess.

Same story came from small school and the Math kicked my butt. Ended up on the USS Sample DE1048 out of Pearl doing WestPac. Plane guard and shore bombardment during Viet Nam. Can you say Yankee Station. The old joke waiting to run aground on Coke cans.
