    Woody,

    Sorry I sent you an e-mail by accident, instead of Bill(regarding the drapes). Please disregard it.

    Here is a set of an aftermarket drapes I found for the 80(one I have told Bill about) :D

    The pic is not of an 80, but you get the idea.

    Mot,
    Thanks!

    CDan,
    I thought you knew I already had drapes (sorta). :D
    Way up North the sun never sets in the summer so it's a little hard to sleep. My wife and I just threw these sheet pieces in one time before I left and they work OK, but the clips fall down etc. I thought this would be a chance to get the real thing.
    Story warning -
    Before drapes I was traveling in Alaska and getting tired at night. Saw a campground and pulled in a spot between people, kids, etc. that were enjoying a campfire and a meal. Climbed in the back in the dark, got naked to get in the sleeping bag and was folding my pants when I accidentally must have pushed that damn remote alarm button. All of a sudden the horn was blowing, lights flashing, and naturally the interior lights come on too. I swear I saw several people barfing as I tried to make myself disappear.

    Is it just me, or is there a reflection of no less than TWELVE quarts of Mobil 1 in the rear window? What else were you doing back there naked with that much lube??!!

    Man you guys are tough and don't miss anything. The oil was just sitting there since I had to remove the plywood box I usually have there to take out my gas tank. Normally I start out on a trip with at least 40 quarts. Change the mobil 1 at 3000K and I don't want to get that started again. Here is a picture of the box mostly unloaded after a return home. BTW, in the first pic that is a RV carbon monoxide detector mounted at the ceiling. Two reasons for it. When cooking inside it reminds me to open some windows. When sleeping when cold I installed a remote start. Now in the AM getting up I can press the remote, warm the cruiser before getting out of the sleeping bag. Always worried about exhaust leaks into the cab and falling asleep again as I have had a couple of bad experiences.
    Doug - live in the woods for six months by yourself and you might find a quart or two has gone missing.

    Man, what I wouldn't give to live in the woods for a couple weeks myself. Not this time of year as the o/s temp is currently about 19 degrees, but roaming around in the 80 in the deserts of California sounds like a dream. My wife and I used to regularly do this for 3-4 days at a time when we lived down there.

    What kind of trips do you take with that setup?

    Doug
