    Hi Bill, our Airstream had two 53 watt factory solar panels on it when new, didn't order it that way but have been very happy with solar charging, wouldn't travel without it now. We are presently shopping for a Zamp potable suitcase type solar setup to supplement our factory system, in the 18 to 200 watt range. We have been leaving our generator at home because it's a nuisance, but traveling east and during winter months we had a need for stronger solar charging. The portable unit can be a nuisance too, but we can move it out from a shady campsite, and can aim it direct to the sun so it can be more efficient than rooftop panels. Our choice comes to the nuisance of the portable generator of the nuisance of the portable solar. Of course the solar is nowhere near as powerful as the generator (no heating appliances) but the solar sets out there working through the day, while the generator is used on a limited basis.

    Thank you for your note. It sleeps really well. The heat pump is comfortably effective to at least the mid-20s so far. I doubt it will handle much less than that though.

    Hi Bill. Just saw your note on a trip to Madison. That's quite a distance southeast of us and am not familiar with the area either. We are further north but after Labor Day the camping season really winds down, and early to mid-October can bring freezing temps at night here. We head south about that time for the winter and watch the temperatures closely. If well below freezing (mid-twenties) we have to be sure to use the furnace at night to keep the underfloor water systems from freezing up, and to monitor propane levels.
    Good to hear from you and good luck on your trip.

    Hey! how did I get another rivet? thupid Bri thought it was of how many AS's one owned...lays down by my dish.
  5. justbrian
    ohh, 55 and what? Ya buggar...and thanks for the friend add.

    Of it all since on the subject~ (feels a tad funny putting this on a public wall). Ima thinking the average age at our camp (we're members) is 40something on up. Most are over weight Alice. If any group of folks are of body acceptance it is nudists. Giddyup and go for a walk each day. Heck it's mostly of feeling good...and our first home in the womb, ifn you ever wondered why it feels so good to swim/float.

    If ever flying into Wisconsin/Milwaukee for any reason you can stay at the "Kegger" (named the AS we did). Ya don't have to get naked except the pool. And it comes with access to my golf cart (four seater/lift kit type).
    For kicks if you get bored this is the place. Home lol, ya ol' hippy.
    see you around~

    yeah well, I had to add the nudist thing feeling I didn't do that much traveling as lotsa folks here. My profile looked a bit lacking.
    And yes li'l Bri takes in a bit too much sun at times if that's what your humor was leaning towards. But over a bit of time the whole bod gets bronzed and all is good with burning issues. lol, ski? I made a neked snow angel once. I don' tknow of any nudist ski resorts..brr. In Feb. a slough of us do a hotel takeover party where we occupy the entire hotel for a weekend. Lots of fun there, pool, workout room, dance parties the whole shabang.
    ~if you guys ever enjoyed a skinny dip you may want to give public nudity a try. 4 hours later one wonders what the big deal is. Great people, and it naturally gets you going to a healthier lifestyle...being there's no secrets anymore. A bit motivating it is.
    Have a great October. (whoever I'm talking to)

    Hi Alice & Billis.

    We have about 30 customers with Chrysler 300's or Dodge Chargers. Some with the Hemi and some with the 3.5 litre. The Hemi is a lot of fun to tow with the 3.5 more economical. I am hoping the Mercedes blue tech diesel will also be available soon.

    If you can send me a direct E mail address there is a lot of information I can send you. I have written a couple of columns on the 300C but they are fairly large word files and I don't think they fit in here. My address is
