aluminations

Anyone else obsessed, (says my wife), with reflections from your Airstream?
Molly sure isn't the most polished, after our first rally I know this for a fact,
but she reflects. And I'm allways seeing stuff illuminated off of her. Looking back at some pics since we've become the caretakers of "Molly", maybe my wife if right...Here's one....

Mike-
What you are experiencing is the after effects of the Region 1 2006 Rally. It is a very rare occurance in the world outside of AS owners. Do not be alarmed!

I have found that owning a vintage AS reflects very well on me!

"Alumination" has been around for a long time -- at least in my household. I have been experiencing "aluminations" with Airstream trailers for 20 years now since I went camping with my grandparents in their 1950's trailer. My grandfather actually coined the phrase "aluminations" with us as a combination of aluminum and illumination. My grandfather kept the trailer very shiny and my brothers and I played a "funhouse" game watching how our reflections were distorted by the trailer in different ways depending on which panel we stood in front of. He always decorated the trailer with lights and we would stand in awe in front of the trailer at night when he turned the lights on.

It was nice to see that someone else (i.e., NEU) brought back these aluminating memories for me.

The airstream.com photo contest has a lot of these type photos. They are to me what it is all about visually. Combining a man made icon with the beauty of nature.
At our last Rally many of us took photos of the reflections of the Fall scenes in vintage trailers. Ahhhhh.

Sunrise in Creed Co. at the 2006 Rocky Mountain VAC Rally. This was our first Rally and prior to this event I thought Molly was really shiny....but then we saw what "Highly Polished" means.

You may have seen this one before, it's my Boxer "Spencer". The day we picked him up as a puppy, Princess Di was killed.
Spencer lives on...

Spencer looks very curious...and your rig looks very aluminating....
Herb Spies showed us how at the 6th annual vintage rally in Creed last summer...
