Hey Bill,
You made my day. It was at the Death Valley 49r's Annual thing. You know I did start out for Woodstock in 69 but never made it off the NY State Thruway. Death Valley was the next best thing. Miles and miles of RVs.

I have actually been accused of being a pussycat before, but only when I sing. Hence my other screen name Plunknyowl. Did you catch my stage debut at the Coyote Howl? By the way, it was an autoharp. Just like John Sebastian played at Woodstock. Maybe someday I'll make it back to those parts while I've still got some ,teeth. The hair's goin fast, just a miserable excuse for a braid to remind me. I keep on pullin though and wish you the same.

Old Airstreamers never die they just are restored as "Vintage"

Marshall,

Now I remember, an autoharp, thanks. You should try another trip to So Cal, the El Camino Real Unit now has a Ukelele band and I am sure that the autoharp would fit right in.

Here is a picture from the Salem International:

I'm glad things turned out so well. It's nice to be a big tall male. You don't get too many arguments, I bet. He, he... read my last post: "I bet you he is not at his mother's."

Well? Tomorrow was three months ago. New appliances? Repairs? Check from the mail? Inquiring minds...etc...

Hi Phil,
Tell Sue I said howdy from Tennessee. I was wondering how this turned out myself.

The rest of the story

Just got the Trade Wind back from a month on the road: Rocky Mtn Nat Park, Black Hills, Devils Tower, Glacier Nat Park, Capital Reef Nat Park, Cedar Breaks, Zion Nat Park and points on the way in Colorado, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Utah and New Mexico.

My wing windows inexplicably blew out on day 2 and 3. My grandson fell in the Flathead River Radids. The good news is I jumped in after him and pulled him out. The bad.... I had my digital camera in my pocket.

The out come of the repairs saga was the expensive repair guy who promised the repair in a week did the work.....in a month. The good news I have new Penguin AC, Atwood hot water heater, water pump, some plumbing repairs and crapper. I could have done it myself.

Oh by the way. I never put in a new fridge. A size near my RM60a is no longer made and would have to go small or redo my cabinetry to fit a bigger one. This size is perfect. Against the forums advice I rigged the fridge to bypass the propane safety valve. I has worked fine for the month. My rationale is the fridge is directly vented to the outside, and the burner flame is about the size of a pilot light. I think you will get more gas from a blown out stove pilot than from the fridge burner blowing out, which it never did. I did put in a propane alarm however and cut an access hole in the bulkhead next to the door to be able to visually check and manually light the burner as you cannot get at it from the outside access door.

I did have the Penguin freeze up on me once in Glacier NP on a warm, humid day. Otherwise no problems with the new appliances.

I am picking up a new NP30 furnace for the rest of the money RV repair guy #1 owes me.

Also I put in a cot type bunk similar to the old Airstream optional ones. It installs, removes and dissassembles in <5 minutes and stows invisible under the gaucho mattress. I used aluminum tubing, bimini top boat hardware and portable display booth frame clamps. I had an upholstery guy do the canvas. The only problem was developing a lottery system to see which grandkids get to sleep in it. I will do a separate thread if there is interest.

Met 3 or 4 forum members on the road including: a 60s Overlander guy who runs the vistors center in Manitou Springs CO and told me Garden of the Gods RV Park does not let in any trailers more than 15 years old, a couple from NC in a 25' 2005 CCD who are just starting to full time it, a couple from Missoula who have a real nice 73 Trade Wind in original condition.
