Completion, it's got a new in addition in websters dictionary; "the irrational notion anyone has that the work on restoring an airstream trailer will ever be done"

As mentioned on here before, no matter what you think it's NEVER DONE

If we couldn't have a sense of humor about it we'd end up on the 6th floor.

T Marco will get it done, I have no doubt. Cliff was teasing. The shower pan is in. As we all know, refurbishing one of these old trailers takes gobs of time and money. T Marco did a shell off, rebuilt the frame, running gear, and many of the systems. His Globetrotter is a lot farther along than many others. But it might be another year. Like he said, life gets in the way.

To inspire you T Marco, here is my Trade Wind in use. Fun. But my trailer did not get the "full monty" that you did to yours. When done, you better insure it for it's full value, which might be close to $20k. Maybe you would like Burning Man next year?

I didn't really read it as mean. Kind of a quote from a Mel Gibson movie, Mel shoots something or someone and the bad guy say , that's just mean, kind of just pops into my head the way he says it.
I was sure it was meant as a jesting push forward.
I'm in the gotta keep a sense of humor or this thing(my disaster removing the shower pan) will never get done.
