I've been busy... Airstream busy

In 2007, Regina and I bought an older Airstream trailer.

We fixed it up and went on a couple of trips in it.

Then it sat for two years.

This Spring, we decided to either use it or sell it.

Using it won.

Last weekend I contracted out the polishing, ran into a couple of setbacks and this week, the polishing is finished.

It looks great.

I will be putting in a new refrigerator this week also.

The trailer as we picked it up.

Bringing the trailer home, on top of a mountain in West Virginia somewhere---blue highway, road was closed due to a truck slide off at the bottom of the mountain.

One of our first trips, I think we're in Kansas.

The tube-like interior reminds you of a private plane.

Jim, I hate to break this to you BUT, in case you don't know....Beck wrecked.

FOX finally canceled that raving drunken lunatics show. I never watched much....just a few times....the blackboard....it resembled Beck's confused and deranged mind. What a mess.

I breathe a sigh of relief.

Next stop Hannity.

spent a night in that four wheeled wonder once...after an afternoon and evening of consuming adult beverages with the bus and the longroffan....seemed way too short as I bedded late and arose early...but it was comfortable, and at least I can say,
I slept away the night's darkness in an Airstream...

Jim (and Ganey0: That camper is absolutely gorgeous. I'm glad you are finally able to get it in "ship shape" and hope you get to enjoy it this summer. I also, faintly, remember crashing in it that night with thejeepjunkie and it was a great evening. Hope to have another real soon. Great job Jim.
