Venting

Not my AS, me. I need to vent.

I'm new to Airstreams, but I bought a 69 Overlander, and arranged to have it towed from seller's place to mine. I was supposed to have it over the weekend, but the driver had something come up and very politely asked if it would be okay if he was a couple days late. No problem, I said, as this guy has been busting his hump to make sure a 44 year old trailer is roadworthy. Now my trailer is stuck on the wrong side of the snowstorm that has shut down interstates all over Wyoming. I desperately want to see and start working on my new toy, and the waiting is driving me crazy.

I hear ya.


We have ours after 9 months and I can't stop thinking about it and resent not living in it 24x7!

:-)

Good luck!

Anyone who watches action/adventure movies knows, the only real difference between a disaster and an adventure is whether you survive to tell the story. Well, you've already got a story out of this, so it's not a disaster. Even if it's only your trailer, and not you, having the adventure.

Focus on the positive.

Be glad it is sitting on the other side of the storm, rather than in a ditch somewhere in the storm.

Patience, patience.

What Maggie said-- Do you really want it dragged through a blizzard and delivered covered in corrosive road salt and grime? Patience is never easy my friend but is often worth it.

"SHOULD BE" arriving today. The driver has put up with two days of forced waiting, constant phone calls from me, and was planning on driving through the night. I'm thinking the guy has earned a little extra and can count on a generous tip.
