I went over a small bridge near home and the bump caused the coupler to open and the trailer disengaged. All I had to consider safety...was an old rusty chain which I was on the way to replace with something reliable. Luckily it held and the trailer stayed behind the truck. It did do several wifferdills, but stayed upright and on the road. As it dragged the truck to a stop I was able to reconnect and recover ....somewhat. See the drag marks I left on the road...
I know this is off-topic, but what in the heck is a "wifferdill"??? I have to ask since my family nickname is "Wiffer." On second thought, maybe I don't want to know...

Vivian

PS And your work is outstanding and SO FAST--congrats on saving two of these little guys.

Vivian,

W wifferdill is an aerial maneuver similar to a U-turn. In this instance, I do believe Robin-pilot means that the trailer made several unpleasant gyrations after becoming unlatched and before he could stop.

not much happening

Time is being used to republish the entire Airstream. Remember it was done and the sap from a pecan tree ruined it all. I have had to completely compound and polish it. Am now beginning the third polish process of Cyclo with Nuvite C. Then in the coming days Cyclo it all with Nuvite S. The wool pad with Nuvite G was very effective.

Looking awesome! I just ordered G glad to hear you liked it... I have some remaining areas of cloudiness that I hope it will resolve. I like the color of the curtains. Good choice!

She is really looking great, Robin. The aqua in the draperies pulls that color out of the upholstery fabric and ties them together nicely!

I'd like to see another pic with more of the interior showing if you get a chance.

Bubble 2 is looking really good -- a lot different than when I was there the first of May. We are getting ready to take Bubble 1 to Flagstaff in a week and half. Beth is entered into a 3 day eventing show that starts July 17. After show we are going to Grand Canyon for a couple of days.

When I get back I am thinking about start polishing -- will be asking a lot of questions then.

Talk later

Great! I am planning a trip with the Bubble...a break in type which your familiar with. Might cross trails around Flag. Wish you had AC for these Summer trips. Just give me a call on the polish.

Any chance you taking the bubble to Gunnison? I too need to get in on the polishing. Any chance I can drop it of there?
