A guy drove past us on the freeway in CA and said the battery compartment was open. We pulled over and the battery was still in there. We will be buying 2 new batteries and moving them inside, away from prying eyes and hands! Our trip home was a short 6 hours and 40 minutes. Matt drove the whole time; he is a saint. I am thinking our next trip should be up to Northern Arizona to play in the snow. Our 2nd full day in Malibu was Thanksgiving.
We went to Whole Foods in Thousand Oaks the night we arrived, so that we could stock up on food for our stay. We bought prepared turkey and gravy, Gardein for me, mashed potatoes, green beans, stuffing, cranberry sauce and rolls. We decided to set a timer on the camera and shoot more photos of us being silly by the airstream. Fun times! There were 4 Airstreams, including ours, at the park. This one had 3 tires on each side, so we are guessing it was larger than our 31 footer. These people had the right idea….
They also had movies playing on a screen on the side of their RV at night! RVers apparently get very into holiday decorations. Love this turkey inflatable. Also, we saw lots of dogs walking around. Some people even set up little pens or tents for their dogs to run around in. I totally forgot to buy some of this wine at the onsite store!
Happy Camper is the coolest name ever! We got back to the airstream and started prepping for thanksgiving dinner. Matt worked on the green beans. I worked on stovetop preparations, with the gravy, green beans and stuffing. We woke up to an overcast day and decided to make some coffee we brought our Keurig and watch some TV, while we all got ready for our trip to Disneyland. It was our first time using the shower in the airstream. We have a 6 gallon water heater, which means that you have to take a very quick shower or turn the water on and off, to get a full shower in.
The toilet works great and I like having the handle behind the toilet, instead of a floor lever. The sink and faucet work great, too. We did encounter a leak in the main valve for the water heater, but it was so slight that we just put a bowl under it.
Getting up to the roof. Installing the cover. We began the install late on Sunday, everything that was needed was included. It went pretty sooth until the last guard on the left side. We eventually realized we had two sets of right hinges — oops. I called OODM to talk to someone and they were closed. Horror set it. I needed to leave on Wednesday — what was I going to do! Blanche was not going on any road without those windows covered.
He made sure they understood that we did not have time for another mistake — they were great, understood and sent out the new part for us to have on Tuesday. We installed the last guard late on Tuesday — Thank You Jesus. Right before heading out on Wednesday afternoon, I threw two mattresses from guest room in the camper and left. At least this time we have a cool place to sleep. She was off on her maiden voyage. On the way. It was the final push before Bonnaroo and so much had to be done.
After camping in a pop up for three years, we were all super excited to have air-conditioning. I could not wait to get the walls painted, paint just always seems to work wonders. Makes everything look so fresh and clean. I had chosen a beige color for the walls. For the console over the front widows, I went bolder with a bright turquoise. Not just a looker here but a thinker. It just added a thick vinyl floor and a put it down.
It was very important to me that it cover the entire floor. Under all of the cabinetry and beds. Not excuse for water to ever get on the wood again. I purchased all new window stoppers whatever they are called. The old ones were yellowed and ugly and a few were broken. The new ones are black and with my OCD, they just all had to match. Nothing but the best for Blanche, she is not cheap. I had to clean all of the old sealer from the previous air-conditioner.
Being that high up in a metal building in June, is miserable. Not sure that he heat helped with removing the gunk but I did get it all clean. I purchased the smallest electrical panel that would hold everything. It will eventually be hidden in a closet but it still needed to look good.
Mine is not perfect, but it works. I found out that my Dad has never gotten rid of a key. Like ever. He handed me a old coffee can full of them and told me to keep trying until I found one that works. Umm, ok. But I did find one that would work until I could have the lock changed. Part of the lock and been worn away so Dad had to do some welding to add to it so that it would lock and stay closed. My biggest fear is that the door comes open while going down the road.
We found this out the hard way and after a few meltdowns. The plastic end caps where the hardest to get back up. Since they had been sitting for probably a year, they had flattened out and it was a serious struggle to get them back into the same place.
It took four 4 people, three 3 to hold it in place and one 1 to rivet. Be sure to get different sizes of rivets and different lengths. The plastic on these end caps is pretty thick and they are heavy so you will need larger and longer rivets for those than you need for the actual walls.
Each piece was laid out by location and cleaned before going back up. Everything was bleached. I wanted the ceiling piece to be a different color from the walls so I painted it before it was put into place. I had to do some touch-ups once in place but it was much easier that painting the entire piece in place.
Once in place, the wiring was pulled through so that the electrical panel could be added…. Front Wall — you can see where it had been painted prior around the furniture. Styrofoam board insulation was added between the walls. Each piece had to be measured, cut and put into place. This was fairly easy just time consuming. We used tape to keep all of the wiring in place. The curved areas were a little tricky but it all worked out.
In some places we had to cut the pieces in half and tape them together to get a tight fit. We knew fairly early on that the back lights were going to be a problem. I had no hope of finding another one. In addition, holes in the outside wall were cut out for the lights even though the lights sat in the bumper. We are unsure if this was original or if at some point, someone was trying to get to the lights from the inside — which would be hard with the shower insert.
Both the outside and inside wall was cut on the curb side of the trailer. This hotel obviously has cleaning staff that cut corners and just remake the bed with the same sheets. I will never stay here again and would never recommend this hotel to anyone.

Over the years I have become a fanatical collector of records, T shirts and CD's and in this current internet age, mp3's are not what i consider to be called part a record collection for the "record"! I decided to start writing reviews as I thought that it would be a good way to give back some positive support for artists and a music phenomenon that has given me great pleasure over the years.
I prefer to listen to bands that can really play their instruments and have a talent for melody and good arrangements. I try to be constructive with everything I endeavour within music.Oct 22, · According to a release from Blue Star Line, work on its replica Titanic ship, Titanic II, resumed after a financial dispute held up the $ million project for several years.
