Well I'm not too far away, if you get bored you could always come on down. I still have LOTS to do on mine! You've done a great job with yours...enjoy.

Thanks for the advice..,, but .,, no extra trailer for me at the moment!-- I have way to many toys already! You guys who have two or three must be rolling in the dough! It's pretty wild to look at the quicken report for the airstream line item-- ouch.

Ity's still wortth it though. There is something theraputic that happens when you excercise creativity. While I'm here let me post a pic for you interior lovers. I came across some really nice (made in America) no stick pots. They have some cool brushed nickel handles which dissipate heat so you don't need a pot holder. They did the job and look cool doing it. cool pots even? why not. Hey talk to you all soon. Waiting for the vintage style awning I recently ordered. And looking forward to a manly trip with my two boys to Clear lake, Oregon soon. Cheers. Ted.

LOL. There are many times I wished I lived in Oregon - love Portland. Glad to see other Odysseys out there towing, especially that lovely trailer!

Right about this time of year, I wish I did. It was 112 today. Sure like to see the tinman's trailer finally getting out for some R & R and I can't think of a better state to do it in.

I agree with your comments above! Sorry for your arizona summer- I'm sure you love it in the winter. But anyway i never really liked dry heat.. I like dry cool. We're still enjoying a sunny dry-cool summer averaging 68-75 degrees in 0regon. Even when it gets in the 90's and hits 100 for two weeks in august, cool air comes in from the coast 45 miles away and it drops down to 50 every night. Sweet summer in oregon Ted

Brad -
We were on day 2 of "heat advisory" yesterday.
Only 98 degrees, but with humidity it felt 115 degrees!

Ted-
Looking forward to more restoration updates - what is the best improvement or upgrade that you've made and love?

Honestly, is there anything better than a 50s Airstream?

Yes Kathy. Good question. Since I started with a gutted trailer everything was an upgrade! But on the serious side I think I'm fondest of my 12 vt rocker switch and bezel system since I have not seen other setups quite like my design. So I hope others can copy what I did there if they want. I think it's on the classy and original side of things. Thanks for the response. And ditto the 50's trailers coolness as remarked above. Cheers. Ted
