If every Christmas, birthday, and Mother's Day (in my case) present for the last 6 years has been related to your latest project!

...if you begin to worry a bit about what you'll do to be able to continue to putter in the Airstream after all the "must do" items are finished.

You may be restoring an Airstream if . . . .

The FexEx delivery man, recognizing the sender from the return address, drops off the delivery package out to the barn / shed rather than to the house . . . .

You realize the FedEx man has stayed at your house nearly 30 minutes looking at everything around & about the Airstream and asking tons of questions . . . .

The FedEx man drops by, with no package to deliver to me, saying he "just wanted to check on my progress" . . . .

I'm thinking Aluminitus may have struck again?
I love that old time rock & roll.

You Google/street view your house and there is a picture of you in your driveway in front of your Airstream with your arms full of supplies you just purchased for your current restoration project. After seeing this picture my wife and kids now tease me that my ALUMINITUS has been confirmed.
