FOR SALE – 1973 31′ Airstream International Sovereign Land Yacht

Airstream 4 Sale

1973 31′ Airstream International Sovereign Land Yacht.

What it needs:
1. New Propane tanks, as the ones on it are the old style that can no longer be filled. 2. New Tires, the current set had cracks but still hold air. 3. Street water regulator. 4. Awning

I am unable to test the propane stove, furnace and fridge because of the need for propane tanks, but my father (who owns the camper) states that he has had them working within the past 5 years. The air conditioner turns on but kept tripping the breaker in my house because I was only providing 20A when the Airsteam system requires 30A. Electric brakes and trailer lighting worked when it was moved to my property in the fall of 2006.

Barred Owl

Barred Owl

I was just getting ready to head to work and out of the corner of my eye, I saw this owl sitting above my power meter on the power pole next to the driveway. Fortunately I had grabbed by camera that morning. I was within 15 feet of this beautiful bird and it was quite aware that I was there. Sorry for so many pics of one bird, but these are the ones that I selected out of the 144 that I took. I found it odd that this owl was out during the day, but I later read that it is not uncommon for the barred owl to be active during the day. I also have heard that many owls are having trouble finding food because of the cold and all of the snow and are being forced to feed on road kill resulting in being struck by vehicles. That sucks!

Ice Rescue Training

Fire Department Ice Rescue

This past summer I joined the Union Fire Department. Here are some pics that I took from the Ice Rescue Training at Seven Tree Pond. I think that the training was put on by the Washington Fire Department and Union and Sommerville attended.

I was expecting to get very cold and wet, but the conditions were nice and the Gumby suits didn’t leak too much.

Memorial Day Weekend 2007

Memorial weekend Camping Galley

Man, What a great weekend! Friday was in the 90s, so Danielle and I thought it would be a great day to teach Marley W. Cooper to swim. We piled into the Jeep and headed to Washington Pond and watched the poor dog flail around in the water and completely drench a couple teenagers who showed up shortly after us.

We then we packed up our camping gear and headed out to Havener Pond for the night. My brother Scrooge, his son Cole and dog Barnaby showed up for a quick visit and to drop off a canoe for us to use. Marley proved by the end of the visit that there was no hope for good swimming; we thought for sure that he was going to drown. Danielle set a campfire and we watched the sunset as we were eaten alive by the black flies. The next morning we headed out on a paddle around the pond and then packed up and headed out. We had a slight delay when we got high-centered on a rock; Scrooge had to come pull us out.

Danielle had to head to work late Saturday morning and I headed over to Xander’s (Joey & Tami’s oldest) 11th birthday party. He had a great turnout and it was great to see all of the Casas’s. Than evening Danielle, Marley and I hung out around a bonfire with Scrooge, Kristine, Cole and Barnaby.

Memorial weekend Climbing Galley

Sunday was our climbing day. Danielle and I met Joey and Tami in Camden at Barrett’s Cove. It was Tami’s first outdoor climb and she was awesome. Joey led the route for us and belayed all of us up 3 pitches to the top. Coming back down was a treat, Tami was bit afraid to rappel down at first, but did a great job after the initial freak out. At the bottom was a group of 30 or so kids, most likely a summer camp group or something. A bunch of snot-nosed, impatient punks that just didn’t seem to want to listen to the group leaders as we attempted the descent to the bottom where they had moved all of our belongings and buried it under a pile of their own crap (VENT). But it was a great day anyways!

Today we are heading over to Danielle’s Aunt and Uncle’s place for a cookout with her family. Relax, visit, eat some vittles, play some pool and maybe head out on her Uncle’s 4-wheeler (if he lets us).

OK, I am finally going to attempt to have a website that I will maintain and update. I don’t know how long it will last, but I will give it my best.
