Thought I would bring this one back to the top with my odd sighting this morning.

I have had sightings of many snow birds over the last few month running from the cold. I put 40 miles a day On I 75 so now that I'm looking I see a few from time to time.

This morning was a odd one though. I saw what I think was a Airstream Funeral coach. It apeared to be late 70's and about 28ft. It might have even been a silver painted Argosy. It just didn't look anything like the coach that I think Fred has a brocure on his page of. THe color for the skin was just off a little and looked more like paint. It had a 5ft long Landau bar and a equally large "W" painted on the side. It was on a flat bed truck headed south. If they stayed on I75 should be clearing Atlanta on the south side by now, maybe even part way to Macon.

Snow birds

We have lots of snow birds this time of year, but very few are in Airstreams. Plenty of multi-slide 5th-wheels and lots of bigger white box trailers.

I did see a highly polished 70s Airstream, about 26', proceeding west on US 290 near Dripping Springs on Friday. I had just dropped my Classic at the storage yard and started home; he probably wondered why I was waving at him.

BTW, the highlight of my last week was a 10-point buck that came up within 10 feet of me at Pedernales Falls state park before he decided that I didn't have anything to give him to eat. He had a beautiful rack.

Lightbulb Silver shinning in sunny but smoggy L.A.

For those folks who want to take a peek at an odd Airstream locally, swing by and say hello to Joe. He is in the City of Commerce, on Olympic Bl. From Atlantic turn east on Olympic and on the right hand side, after a couple of blocks you will see it. He lives in it, but the interior of this 1966 Caravel is unlike any other. Swing by.

I wish my Airstream was invisible to the birds!

I'm getting tired of cleaning up after target practice!

I live in the Daytona Beach area and have an office in Jacksonville which I drive to several times a week. I consistently see two to three airstreams a week. Where I stow our '25 Safari there is also a '25 Classic a '34 Classic and an older AS motorhome. They are out there just keep looking.

Wink spotted two and still looking

We are still working on our 74 overlander. After purchasing a 97 dodge ram 2500 4X4 to pull it, I did a complete turnaround when I saw my "double" going the other way! That was only the second I've seen in the 4 months we've owned and been looking. The first was a newer, longer airstream. Impressive! After all my online time looking up info, etc, it does seem that they must be invisible!!

Cool Ya just need a 13 year old to find them-

My son is an antique car fan, so he is always rubbernecking garages, barns, etc. He always yells out "Airstream!" when he spots one. I never see them when he's not in the car....
