Now that would make a lousy tow vehicle unless you got an even smaller Airstream.

This message comes from the assembly point of Cycle North Carolina. About 1120 bicycle riders of all sorts will begin a ride from Asheville NC to Wilmington NC ....462 miles in six days.
Of that group there are factions of fanatisism ... mine is the recumbent cycle version.... of course mine is all aluminum too!!
I'm only going to do the first three days, the hard part, then follow the route as support while I work my sales territory.
This bunch came together from as far away as Spain, as well as almost every state in the union.
Ride, eat, sleep, repeat for 462 miles is the "moto" for the year.

Ah well ... I will fess up ... another fly fisher. The wife is into photography and there are no more beatiful places than where the trout gather. The trailer is just the means to THAT end.

I think the fly fisher folks need their own thread.

How does over 10,000 riders riding 500 miles in Iowa over 6 days sound? When I rode in RAGBRAI (http://www.ragbrai.org/) back in 1986, they broke 10,000 riders. It is quite an event. That was back in the day when I could ride 100 miles without batting an eyelash. Now, almost 20 years later, with two bad knees, I can only look back with fond memories. Now I have my motorcycle.

I've done Paris-Brest-Paris three times. Three thousand riders from 25 or so countries doing 1200 Kilometers (750 miles) with a maximum allowable time of 90 hours. The winners will come in under 46 hours, with no sleep. I slept four hours my first time out; even less on the next two.

I still get cold chills when I think of coming into small French villages at impossible hours of the morning and finding maybe half the population out cheering as every rider goes by - hour after hour.

Glad to see someone else shares my twin addiction of Whaler and Airstream. Sure meet a lot people when I take out either one.

Mine is Disney...as you can tell my handle. We live about 6-1/2 hours from Walt Disney World and have annual passes and make it down to the "World" about three to four times a year. We have been as many as six times in one year. We usually stay eight days at one of the Walt Disney World resorts. Our next trip will be for a short four day trip the third week end in October when the kids have a four-day weekend from school. We will be attending Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. We hope to try Fort Wilderness fall of '06. We have two young sons, ages 8 and 5. This is one vacation destination that my wife and I truly enjoy and that our boys enjoy as much as we do. When asked why we go so often, I tell my friends, "Where else can you go that the kids enjoy as much as the parents!"

I collect many different Disney memorabilia. I also collect pre-1972 matchbox cars and vintage fountain pens (my daily writer is a 1947 Parker Model 51).

On a tangent note, when he is old enough to leave his mother I will be picking up a cocker spaniel puppy when we return from Disney World at the end of the month. I put a deposit on him this week end and asked the breeder to start using his name. His name will be "Sulley" after the Disney/Pixar Monsters, Inc. character James P. Sullivan and I am considering training him for field trials and competing with him when he is old enough. I guess that would be hobby number five after Airstreaming.

Guess I what I got...!?!

Hi all!

Guess I got I got...!?!

Figured I'd get the fishing (lots!), modeling(a few), Tractors( a few), AS'ing (Obviously!), and the woodworking-flying-HD's-etc. LOVED the beer one!!!! Yeah baby! Sip a 'Warsteiner' , 'Kaiser' or 'Gosser' for me!!!! Anyone get the Euro beer references?? You know who you are!!!! MGD and PBR only goes so far....

I guess that I expected a bit more 'diversity' than exhibited itself in the 38 odd replys so far. Not that I'm knocking it, but no one mentioned 'HOTtubs'! No one mentioned latex or leather or .... Tame group this first go around???

No seriously, whatever float your "Whaler" boat is OK by me, Boston Whaler!!! - WAY COOL!!! Did I mention that I think I have found a first production year 13' Sport model?? Still researching the molded model number but these things got me thinking about, well, our other obsessions. Maybe there will be more responses coming....

LOVE to hear what some of the rest of you out there are thinking/obsessing about as the days come and go!!!!

Looking forward to the next 30 or 40 replys!

Ciao

Axel

Arg! and double Opps!

Hello again!

Went back thru the messages and forgot 2 of my favorites, Trains and RC Cars/ Vehicles. How could I forget these 2, I ask you???

Since trains are a childhood obsession - I had 24x24 layouts with the full working town( with slot car track and racing embedded in the streets) and mountains, town and the tressel(sp?), 8 rail Switchyard, full scenery and all that. Remote switching was a given!!!!! Mine was the Illinous Southern Railway- everyone has "that one" for themselves! And of course, I lOVED the UPasific until I had to crate it all! With the big Yellow and red - Nothing better!!!!!! Unfortunatly I had to have it all currently boxed and crated for the time than I get the itch, so we can get things moving... Now, however, If my son came to a place of interest, I would allow him the place to experience and play with the idea of ?????

The sawhorses and the 4x8's await the day and the time...

As to RC. Well, the yard is (unbeknownst to the wife!!) slowly getting to the double set of whoop-de-do's with a banked 180 into a set of left/right sweepers with a killer MAX air triple that is likely to break every piece of equipment I currently own! No matter as they make excellent replacement parts! Sound like AirStreamin???

Had to go back and give some 'props' to my boys and ladies in the train and RC hobby and hope that we can come up with perhaps several "splinter' groups within AirStream Forums that might like to talk about thier particular "affliction" with like minded folks!?

And obviously, there are GIANT communittes that can and will hash out the $ and the PI and the Media side of all this. Not to mention the MASSIVE number of people that are needed to 'forward' the situation.

I saw we can DO it ALL!!!!!!

It is easy to make statements - we need ACTION! And fun of course.

We CAN do it all!

Axel
