Update on Airstream…Not Good News

Airstream Update Airstream Update

Those of you who have read my previous Airstream posts are probably waiting with baited breath (what in the world does that phrase mean?) for another report.

Here is the latest: it is going to cost more than we expected to get the Airstream road worthy. We had it in the shop to get a black tank installed (an expected expense) and when the mechanic removed the foam insulation under the bathroom floor he discovered that the frame had a hole rusted through it.  Part of the frame will have to be removed and new frame welded back.  Does this mean that we can’t afford the repairs?  No, but it does cause us to dip into our emergency money which is a no-no and we know it.  We can rebuild our emergency fund in about three months, and we have some emergency emergency money stuck away, but we don’t like touching money which shouldn’t be touched.  Hopefully some of you can learn from our adventure.  Hopefully, we can too.

Thank you kindly for the mention. Make sure to ask the Lord for guidance… he will never fail to give it as long as we ask! 🙂
