As our work season approaches, I realize we have a lot of work to do to get our 32 footer ready for the road. But, nothing will be done unless I keep away from the computer, so I will be spending less time on the 4 or 5 forums I have been visiting lately (my right hand has a bad case of "MOUSE-itis"). I am sure we will still have questions from time to time, and may even post pictures of our new bedroom....when we get to it.
All you driveway campers, it's time you get out there. So hitch up that Airstream and drag it out of the driveway and down the road, have some adventures, and bring back some good stories.
You have been hesitant up to now to share your experiences with us, as obviously you do not have much to share yet.
At the end of the Summer, it's going to be a different matter.
No more excuses. You know who you are:
Let' see you get that new Bambi out of the the Yard and on the road, Ed & Nancy
from British Columbia, you know now that you can make it on your own and your dream AS is not out of reach. Don't forget, first thing to do is, with the dealer watching, kick the tires and frown.
I trust you will find your Argosy Minuet soon and we are all confident that things will turn out OK for you.
: We expect you'll have some great stories to tell. Life on the road with 4 dogs will be a real adventure. They will enjoy your new 2003 Safari.
from Massachusetts, you were afraid to be thrown out of the forum. I quote "a registered member since 08/2002 and I follow it regularly, daily even. I'm gleaning all the information I can to prepare myself for the time we buy our trailer. I've found the forum extremely useful and have even made a few posts (very few since I don't have a lot to offer yet)."
Maybe you could offer the benefit of the research you're doing toward buying your Airstream. That should win you some Bonus "Rivets".
In case you don't know what Rivets are all about, they're some kind of "aluminium Boy Scout badge"
that confers status and power among forum members.
Reports from fledgling Airstreamers are important to us Old Hands. A lot of us have forgotten how exiting and maybe even frightening those first trips were. When, in time, towing a trailer becomes routine you'll revert to tales of polish & wax and won't be any fun at all.
The most exciting thing to happen to me lately was yesterday, when for a split second, I did not remember how to maneuver the Van backwards without the trailer !!!!
. "What do you mean, turn left ?". Not much of a story.
I re-read the results of 2 polls: it's interesting that 50% have own their AS less than a year. Is this the same 50% of members under the age of 50? If so, I guess I've achieved "old fart" status, so I'd better think about getting out of the way so you under 50 pups can post your Airstream Adventures.
Remember: Make certain your Umbilical is secure and your hitch coupler is closed, etc,...etc,....etc.....
