Had a great time at the Birthday Bash in Plymouth, NY at the home of Rob Baker last weekend. Thanks to Rob&Zoey, Frank&Beth, Steve, Ace, Deborah, Ansty&Grant, Michael, and all the other folks who helped make this a wonderful event. I didn’t mind being in my truck tent, but hopefully the next time I go camping, it will be with Rosie (see latest post from Frank). I really enjoyed seeing old friends and making new ones, some two legged, some four. I met people I had been following on AirForums and got lots of good ideas wandering into people’s trailers. Craig, Sue, Mom, K&N came for the open house and seemed to contract the Airstream bug. Sitting in the field Saturday night, watching the fireworks, then listening to Antsy and Michael was a most memorable time (Rob’s Bash post with links to pictures).
Even though Rosie is not ready to leave Frank camp yet, the majority of work is completed and she will return soon (no date set). So I ordered the reflective insulation (Prodex) and have been designing the new electric system with the idea of solar in the future when my budget recovers in a year or two. For now, I’ll be thrilled to have a replacement for the old Univolt inverter and looking at using my gift certificate from Cay at Vintage Trailer Supply for a new converter/charger. Before I do either of those things, I need to be sure Rosie is as water tight as possible, need to talk to Frank about leaks and seam sealers next time we connect.
