I've got to figure out when it will air in Colorado - all the previews last night said 9:00 - its not listed in TV guide - so I'll start watching at 7:00.

May be late for chat tonight.................

I watched the 10 minute segment tonight on the travel channel and was left with wanting another 20 minutes of information. Don't get me wrong, I liked what they did show but I would have liked to see more areas of the factory and some of the systems they were installing.

over too soon!

Craig, we thought so too! We kept trying to see more in the screen view than they were showing! The segment fit perfectly in the half time of the Mizzou-OSU game we are watching, but nevertheless, I wanted to see lots more. We need a full hour documentary that includes all the factory plus lots of on the road. I wonder if anybody is listening?!

They had a few nice shots of rallys but a little more on rally activity would have been nice also.

I also thought it was nice but I also would have liked to have seen a lot more. I could have watched it for about say.....another hour or two!

The Other Factory Tour

The History Channel has the "Hands On" show and they had a more lengthy factory tour segment. I'm waiting for that one to make an encore appearance. I have the Ratzenberger segment recorded. Edited without commercials it comes to about 9 minutes.

This Travel Channel John Ratzenberger's Made in America - Airstream segment airs again 11:00 PM Central tonight and this Saturday 28 Feb at 2:00 PM Central in case you missed it.

If you have an opportunity to tour the plant in Jackson Center, I highly recommend it.

You get to see everything, from beginning to end. The tour lasts a little over an hour.

tour

I enjoyed John's segment too, but what was with that sock monkey presentation in the '50s trailer? Talk about off topic.
