Now that we are within a month of the event, I can ask for an exception to policy to miss a day of training. I will inquire on Monday, but would not be surprised if it is summarily denied. However, you miss 100% of the shots you don't take. Let me know if there is a possible spot.

Did Shepherd57 back out? If he did, he didn't tell me this weekend when I talked to him.

I also thought Grosspolluter maybe coming.

Partial good'ish news. The 17th I must work, but the decision makers said the 18th is a possibility and need to deliberate. If so, I can leave on the 17th after work, and arrive super late, then join yall on the 18th and 19th with a departure super early on the 20th. So early any pics will need to occur on 19May18. More to follow.

Just checking in
I still really want to go to this
the RV is sitting in my driveway and Iím feverishly working on it
I did all the heater hoses this week. unfortunately I drop one of the house batteries breaking the casing but thatís OK both batteries were kind a toast anyway
Probably should work a new battery cables while Iím at it (iíll just add that to the long list of things I need to do)
One of my rear airbags is leaking down but I think itís a sticky air valve, or linkage to the air valve
I also want to check to make sure all my Engine belts are in line
Is there an easy way to do this other than removing everything up front?
I was thinking maybe one of those laser lights that throw a straight line laser beam? (just shine it down on top of the pulleys to see if they line up?)
Iíve had one of those weeks were EVERything I touch just turns to... poop
I also totaled my every day driver and toad car (2001 Honda CRV... light pole jumped out in front of me)
Also had to replace the battery on Mazda Miata... well thatís what I thought, but it was the starter
My driveway is littered with cars and one Airstream that are in the exploded view and in some sort of disrepair....
Maybe I should replace the cr-v with a heavy duty tow truck and pull the 345 to the get together... or would that just make it a trailer:>)
Oh ya Iím also trying to get together with davejay to get a pair of windshields (my driver side has HUGE crack in it)
So providing I can keep the heads on and not leaking, can see in front of me stop the air leaking, keep the knuckles lubed, the transmission in gear and the rubber on the ground...
(And the same for the Airstream) Iíll be there.
If you end up needing more sights you can kick me off the list, and Iíll drive my Miata up there and stay at a motel

@ Grosspolluter

Look at the bright side......at least you're working on your Airstream; we're expecting an inch of freezing ice this weekend; it has only been above 40 degrees once, this month so far. John's pretty done with winter as well.

We may end up not de-winterizing the Mistress at all this year.

Cheers

We travelled across Lake Michigan on the Badger. Nice trip. But what REALLY impressed me was watching the shipís crew back our TV and trailer, all the way from the parking lot, across the ramp, and onto the vehicle deck, without so much a minor twerk in the steering. Absolutely straight line with a perfect arc of a turn into the starboard side of the hold. Dead center in the parking lane. WOW...

Incidentally, if your interested in this sort of thing... The ferry, SS Badger, is the ONLY remaining commercial Great Lakes ship propelled by a reciprocating steam engine. Probably one of just a handful worldwide.

You have quit the list still.
I had a '93 Miata. Towing it was like nothing was behind the 'Silver Bullet'. The trouble was I'd get in it and drive like was a 16 year old, the wife can't drive a standard, then I had to start wearing a brace on my clutch foot. After I spun out and kissed a curb I decided it was time for a new owner.
The AS does not look very good hooked to a tow truck. I've had too many tow truck visits: battery cable shorted to ground in the pre-dawn hours of rush hour traffic in Ft. Worth, transmission burnt on I-40 in eastern OKla, replacement transmission burnt up at almost the same spot on I-40, injector pump died (twice before I realized that AS had spliced the wire to the Holley pump and it wasn't always getting 12V), power steering pump died, Then the last tow truck ride was when I dropped a valve north of El Paco on I-25. Just not a good sight to see.
Thankfully I've forgot so others times.

Supervisor said all should be good for FRI-SUN. To add to the fun we get off work early on Thursday, so we will start heading out on thursday, and will make it in around.... 2am? :-D

Kota,

What do I need to do, to reserve/pay for the spot? (PM is fine) Is it referenced in a previous post number?

Sorry for not being more engaged but as some of you know we care for my mother. It become a full time job since unexpectedly loosing my dad a year ago. Weíve been living with them since moving from Colorado back home over the past 3 years. Is been a difficult time for us. Todayís task Iíd to move her from a nursing home after 6 weeks of IV antibiotic therapy for osteomyelitis in her foot to an assisted living facility. 24/7 care at home about killed us at home when she became immobile. Enough TMI!

We are really looking forward to getting away for a much needed break. We are heading up there on the 11th and staying through the 21st. The morel mushroom festival is the weekend of the 11th. Pretty much just a weekend deal. Should be pretty quiet after Monday.

Iíve reserved the ten sites on the far west end. I paid $5 per site for the reservation fee. Any unused sites (or days) will have to be canceled by the 10 or 7 days prior to avoid charges. The $5 is on me!

Iíll post more in a few minutes.
