Dawgs, Food and Weather.......

I added one more dog. Have we left out any pets?
Is this the final final officious list???
Can't wait to meet you all...especially the cats!
Love, Ed
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
#130.......Luminati (Fri) - Karin and Mark (and the mighty Quinn). We'll bring our dog Quinn (...guess she got lost in this epic rally thread!). Fortunatly, she's a DAWG and she was not at all slighted by the oversight.

Potluck offering: either Chinese chicken salad for 50 or slow-cooked chuck-roast Chili for 60.

Since we live less than a stone's throw from Casini Ranch, I will advise you on the weather:

Forecasted glorious warm days (mid 70's), however, the evenings can be chilly and sometimes foggy, so plan accordingly...that is, start drinking early to bring those body temps up (or wear a warm jacket).

Okay, Quinn would like to issue some press photos: Quinn relaxing at Lake San Antonio and in our Petaluma backyard.

How about white gloves and pumps for the ladies at potluck just like in the Wally Caravan documentaries...

Bong: I don't need no stinking bong!

When I was 19 years old I had a lotta fun messing around with fully automatic weapons! and the smell of jet fuel in the early morning.
One rally one thread; that bong , it make you stupid in da head.

Wow

Kevbo,

Will that recipe work with polka-dotted duckling as a substitute? It is all I can find at Albertsons.

I actually saw Wally's bong. It was inside his gold trailer. It's aluminum and riveted. I believe thats the type Kevbo has only his is Walbernized.

Yikes! A moment of panic

Yesterday I was out getting the Airstream ready for the rally; cleaning, organizing, etc. All of a sudden there was a loud bang and a puff of smoke coming out of the power converter/charger. The lights dimmed and there was a big drop in power. I shut everything down and disconnected the power, thinking it wise to avoid any further damage, smoke, flames, etc. I had noticed that the Parallax 7300 hundred unit sometimes smelled hot and it seemed like the cooling fan was running a lot.

So last night I settled into a slightly depressed mood, fussing about why something major would break just before the rally, and about being forced to deal with something clearly out of my experience and knowledge. I couldn't even see how I could get the Airstream in someplace for service before my planned departure on Thursday to Casini.

Well, the blues dissipated a little with the dawn. I got out my trusty screwdriver, only to find that I needed to go to the hardware store to get a different screwdriver (something called torx). In no time I had removed the offending piece of the charger. It was the part with the smoke residue.

Then I had to track down a replacement part. It wasn't looking good. Either the parts departments were closed, or it was going to take two weeks to get the part. Finally, online I found a place with the best price, the part in stock, and next day shipping.

The new part comes on Tuesday.Barring any unforeseen difficulties, I should have it all put back together and powered up by Thursday. If I don't, I'm coming anyway. I'll just be the guy sitting around in the dark.

I feel the panic

All this rain is making things difficult for me. My Excella , at the vinyard. needs to have a few days of dry weather to solidify the dirt. Last month I tried to move her to get tires and as soom as I hooked up and touched the gas, the burb immediately sunk to the pumpkin. It sat that way for 4 days. So tomorrow I'm setting a few 2X12's for support, always something. once I get onto the service road to the vinyard I'll be fine, just wondering how much mud I'll be throwing at the AS. I need a few parts also I'm gonna have them sent to Casini so I will still be on the road wednesday am. after today I'm down a bottle! Keep on smilin. DG maybe I should just hook up to my small AS instead.

That's the spirit!!

I had a similar- situation- of panic... I nearly took my head off with the polisher... seems, my hair was a bit too free on this day.. and whamo- smacked in the head. T'was a close call, believe you me- Luckily I still have hair- albeit a tad shorter on the side with the lump.

Last minute jinxes

Well Sequoiacoast and Condoluminum and Doorgunner were being hampered by jinxes. Me too. Friday was the day I was going to check the car/tailer hookups, WDH, safety chains, lights. The night before I put several gallons of water in the tanks. I did not want to fill them because we will have full hook up at Casini so why haul all that water around. Anyway Friday morn was a sunny one but a pending storm convinced me that this was the perfect time to check the towing stuff. First I thought with water in the tanks I would run the water pump. Well I got that unmistakeable sound of a pump sucking air. So I went outside to check the water fill to see if I had put enough in. There was water running onto the ground on the curb front corner. I cranked the trailer up some to get a better view of the leaking water source. When I looked up under there was also water running from the rear of the trailer. A LOT! AW, JEEZ, now what. To shorten this story the supply hose from the curb tank to the copper pipe that runs along the wall/floor to the street side tank (did Airstream design this?) had slipped off the copper pipe and the water leaking out pooled under the tank until I raised the trailer front then it ran through the trailer and out the back. I was going to mop the floors anyway. The fix was more complicated than necessary and I did not do the car/trailer check-out. It has poured rain for 2 days so Monday is hopefully the next opportunity.

Neil and Lynn.
