Celina Prep?
Oh how I wish I were bringing my Amphi to
Celina! Alas it is not to be this year, but just
being there is its own magic. Of course I'll relay
all the wonders to Amphi (and Mermaid) upon
my return. Packing for Celina is easy if you're
a pathetic tourist such as myself. Most important
thing to remember is my waterproof camera. If
provided enough alcoholic beverages I may just
plunge into the brackish green radioactive water
of the Hot Hole and shoot a few photos from under-
neath someone's Amphi. Might make for a decent
calendar photo? so be sure your Amphi's underbelly
is looking good too!

Peeked in on Amphicar.com & the sister site
Amphicar.net and discovered a tribute page to
our departed Father of the Amphicar - Hanns
Trippel. Well done! The Celina activity listing
looks pretty sweet as well. Can hardly wait!!!

I suppose if I could suggest 2 things for consideration
in the coming weeks they would be:
#1 - Take a minute to inspect your rear axle
boots (all the way around and the clamps) since
an axle boot mishap will turn Amphi into a sub-
marine almost as fast as opening the passenger door.
Probably a good idea to have a peek at the steering
box boot as well. No doubt I'm preaching to the choir,
but then again there are some newbies joining us and
once sunk your weekend might not be all that terrific.
#2 - Save some energy and join in on the parade
through town. Last year it rained a little and many
owners were too hungover to be bothered with the
parade. Those that did partake were great and Celina
townspeople love our Amphicars. Please remember
to WAVE to the crowds - after all they are there to see
US and we do appreciate their hospitality.

Well the sun is shining here in San Diego, so
Mermaid & I will take to the lake and give our
Amphi a much deserved swim.
