Nice Jeep Di, you have a good man.
We are a dozen miles or so off 80 as I recall. Jeff and Marcia will roll in here Tuesday and we all roll out on Thursday. Stop in on your way back!

Getting ready for camping this summer. Nancy is finished teaching for the year but the teardrop is in for repair. We had a roof leak that I did not catch until too late and this was not a project I wanted to tackle.
The frame is aluminum so rot was only on the central ceiling panel but that is not available so the whole thing will be replaced.
Ohio has a Golden Buckeye card for those of a certain age that gets you half off Monday through Thursday and we will be taking advantage of it.

Wow... look who it is everybody! RVM8... Woot! Woot!

Thought about you the other day in Illinois...

Sorry to hear about the leak.. this too shall pass but as meticulous as you are (mutant maticulitis... and all) I'm a little surorised. But winter is not our friend when it comes to these things. Keep us informed of the repair progress and your trips. I've been to your pic site before but when you and the other teardrops get together - share a pic or two!

I hated to have to tell my local dealer that I "already bought one". But they had trumped the MSRP by $6600!!!!!!!! with a fake line item package that truly doesn't exist (when questioned about it, couldn't explain what it was for - well let me rephrase, the package DOES exist, but is standard in the base price of the unit.).

Homey don't play that.

I never even tried to negotiate. Their initial telephone offer, to which the young man made sound ever so like what a great deal i've got for you, was over 15,000 dollars higher than what I actually paid, 100% haggle free. He had no idea when he called me with the price, I was 10 minutes from signing paperwork 180 miles away at that exact moment...and I wasn't exactly in the situation to explain....

The conversation went something like this.

"Hello?"

"Jay, this is SOME NAME at SOME PLACE, and I've got that price you wanted on the XYZ model, and I think you're gonna like it!"

{in my head: it's been 4 days... 4 days since I asked... i've had enough time to eat 15 times, take 5 showers, drive 7 hours, and stay a night in a hotel....and eat again}

"Yeah?"

"Yeah!"

"K... shoot."

"Ok, so for a brand new, xyz, with xyz, MSRP is $96xxx, but I got my manager to come down to $859xx since you're such a super guy" ((mind you, factory msrp of this is $89xxx, verified by Airstream regional manager himself, who was graciously kind enough to speak with us - super guy! Also told us every dealer pays the same, regardless of volume, and i'm staring at a sheet of paper starting with a 6.)

"Cool man, thanks for the info"

silence - awkward silence - more awkward silence

"Welp I look forward to hearing from you, let me know when you'd like to pick it up, I've got some great financing rates of 5.xx" (I'm already pre-approved under 4% privately.)

"Thanks, bye bye now"

"Oh..ok bye"

{sound of signature on paper}

But he kept calling and kept calling even though I had emailed him telling him I was out of the running to keep him from wasting any extra energy as a courtesy, and finally I just had to tell 'em I already bought one. Disappointment ensued indicated by confused, downtrodden tones - not mine.

My experience locally was a model of the stereotypical everything you ever thought about a dealership. My experience where I bought was two good ole boys, a bottle of scotch, and a laid back, easy to work with deal, on what I would say is a rather small lot with a total of maybe 18 trailers, 5 rv's mostly c's and a couple airstream B's. Most of em airstream, couple different brands, 3 bay service doors - that's it. (and they happen to be the tenth biggest mover of airstreams in the country - with only the two of em plus some ancillary staff. Maybe a total of 6 employees I saw in the building)

Vastly different experience, and more pleasing too. There was no "finance guy", there was no "round table in the middle of the showroom", nobody wore the same puffy white shirt that's too big with a logo on it, there were no golf carts, and the coffee was stale, nobody smoked - perfection!

Go figure! brunettes have to be smarter than blondes. Earlene is a brunette. She has her Town Car, her Motorhome, and her jewelry. Larry, you need to keep them two from talkin' to each other.

Reminds me. She asked, If I were to "go" before you, would you let your new girl friend have my car?"

I replied, "Why not, it's a perfectly good car." Then she asked, "What about my clothes, would you let her wear my clothes?"

I replied, "Why not, they are perfectly good clothes," and then she asked, "What about my jewelry, would you let her have my jewelry?"

I replied "Why not, it's good jewelry." Then she asked "What about my golf clubs, would you let her have my golf clubs?"

I replied, "No, she's left handed."

That's when the fight started.

As to the debate on Captain America... who would have thought Dan Haggerty would turn out to be a chump and certify 2 bikes as the original Captain America... but the museum feels like theirs is the one... the guy in Texas bought is long ago and it was Haggerty certified as well. Fonda is torqued off over it as are many others. How sad... still all in all this is the one that sold for a million or so and is on display at the National Motorcycle Museum. J&P brought the museum to Anamosa Iowa from Sturgis.
Steve in your travels how many authentic Pink Elvis Cadillac Convertibles have you seen. I have seen three just in Canada. If there is a registered unit there is a scam somewhere else.

BTW - anyone visiting the Field of Dreams in Dyersville - would be well served to eat at the Country Junction Restaurant. It was very good...

Well Mutey's it's been an eventful two days here in Albuquerque. So we picked up Our Grand Kaylee at the airport but her luggage didn't come with her. Ugh all her competition gear in there of course. So they say it's on the next flight an hour behind hers. We leave and go eat lunch then arrive back at airport. Still no luggage. Frantic GD now! Now airline says it could arrive on any later flight so they will call us. GD beside herself now that she may not get to compete if the luggage doesn't arrive in time. Soooo super grandparents that we are we spring into action! We go to the Convention center were the meet is being held to see if vendors are there selling. Much to our surprise only one vender but not selling any leotards or any other stuff she needs. But they were helpful in sending us to a local gym where we we bought her a performance Leo, and luckily they had a used pair of leather grips they sold us that just happened to be in Kaylee's size ( that must have been a God thing cause those are special order only not sold in stores). Then it's off to Dicks Sporting Goods to get the vet wrap and tape and an ankle brace for the foot she broke in diving some time ago. We dash back over to the convention center so she can have a practice round. Whew we are beat!

This morning we decide to go back to airport to check and finally they confirm her bag will arrive in ten minutes on the flight that just landed. Whew! That kid has never been so excited to see a piece of luggage! Soooo here we are, she is showering and getting ready to go. Competition for her level at 4:00 so finally the world is back in balance!

I will post again tonite after the competition is over. Hopefully this experience won't affect her performance cause she has been a bundle of nerves. Keep your fingers crossed brothers and sisters!
