Yah, that heater was running constantly! I do need to get that refill attachment.

Thanks! It's that 230 horsepower 454 that makes it possible! We should plan an Airstream weekend at Yosemite.

Yosemite is a very beautiful place and very popular too. For those that don't know, the campgrounds sell out months and months in advance for the summer months. I would bet that next summer is already sold out...you need to book reservation way in advance.

You get to plan our trip to Yosemite.....

Where and when? Sounds good to me....did you tow a toad or stay parked on your trip? Or did you drive the 34.5 around the park? p

I have the 28footer which is a great size for the national parks. A 34.5 might be over the max length. Each space tells you what the max is. We didn't tow anything. Took bicycles with and used the excellent bus system running throughout the valley. There is a smog problem in the valley so they are trying to really limit auto use. I want to go back in April.

28'--duh, what was I thinking

Okay you are only 4 feet longer than we are....April sounds like a great time....did you stay right in the valley? When do we have to make reservations? Bikes work for us.....and certainly the buses work as well.....before Memorial Day and after Labor Day are good times....p
