Welcome to the forum...Looks like a sweet tow.

I have to agree with Kevin. The first one followed me home over 10 years ago and they still keep following! What a ride!

Stock up on the beer because you will spend many a day sipping (or downing!) beer and pondering while you walk around the Airstream!

snow is forecast for Friday

I already miss looking at ebay, craigslist, airstreamguy.com, etc on a twice-daily basis. Now I have time to actually get some work done. I started tearing out the inside today and got a good look underneath the bathroom area (from inside the back hatch). I'm now wondering whether I could do the framework/floor with the shell on or whether it's easier/faster to do a shell-off? I've decided to do way less band gigs this winter which allows me more time on the weekends to "make a mess."

I've decided today to start a blog just to inspire all the procrastinating wannabes that dreams can become realities and that a bass player is really the second most important guy in the band, right behind a funky drummer. When I come up with a blog name, I'll get it started and I'm sure it will contain gratuitous shots of my chocolate lab, Jake, just as the 66 Safari (HUGO) blog does. By the way, it's great to have all of the existing blogs and threads and forum posts to follow. The inspiration factor is off the charts!

Hmmm...you may want to reconsider this decision...you'll always need more $$$ than you think to restore your baby!

Have fun! Take lots of pictures along the way ~ and remember, things are going to get worse before they get better.

who says it costs money to renovate an Airstream?

I am now officially $10.25 to the plus side thanks to finding some vintage money hidden in the recesses of my trailer. It doesn't offset the money I have spent on beer, but I'm counting it as a hidden benefit. Hopefully more to come as the interior removal continues...THIS JUST IN...

Hi Steve, I just got a chance today to read thru your blog and thread here, its looking good. I had kind of dropped out for a while, lots of stuff going on but is still fun reading about everyone's progress. People that don't have a vintage trailer just don't understand how addicting these are. Hopefully I can make it down there sometime, If you are ever in the area stop on in.We are in the process of building the cruiser a new barn right now.
Good luck Doug
