I'm wearing a rut skipping down the road to the mail box, anticipating Spring '08...then trudging back empty handed. But then, I'm enjoying the issue vicariously through all your postings Someday my issue will come...! ~G

I've been getting Airstream Life for a couple years now - more than that if you count the back issues I bought when first subscribing. Just like most everyone else, I drop what I'm doing and read it cover to cover - I love it - very motivational - inspires me to get back out to the Minuet and finish the project that began over a year ago. I was admiring the photo of the sweet little '61 Bambi on page 51 - and realized no way could it be a '61 - it's a '64 Bambi II - Right? Is this a "trick" photo to see if we are really paying attention???

Nice catch, it is a '64.
I actually poked around for a minute or so with the search feature in our very own forums' photo section, and found this exact photo - cropped differently, and done in a gorgeous, warm sepia tone. Happy hunting!

Airstream Life -Pagosa Hot Springs

Received magazine yesterday and finished it today. Surprised to see my town (Pagosa Springs) on page 64, Destinations! Given our winter this year, cross counry skiing is the only sure way to the hot springs! On second thought, I just re-read this fine magazine!
Good warm reading,
Larry

Actually, you will be seeing much more of this sort of thing since the cost cutting measures went into place at AL. the magazine is now produced in Calcutta, India by recently graduated American college students with huge college loans that could not get work here.

Hey, producing this kind of glossy mag isn't cheap. So what if the doors are sometimes on the wrong side in photos and the rally recipe section has curry in every dish. The biker article was supposed to be in "Old Biker Dude Rag" also produced offshore and somehow made it into AL because it is shiny.

Wally forcasted that the world was getting smaller back in the fifties, so getting the year of the trailer off by a few and maybe even the model is all part of the adjustment we all have to make for lower prices, everyday!

ok very funny, and we can ALL help asl cut costs...

so i will gladly volunteer to write and verify the captions for all pictures of rigs....

they will read this way...

"here is john (or betty) with his/her old trailer"

i say skip the year/model/brand issues completely!

cheers

So true - you need look no further than the Tin Hut articles. Why, the publisher can't even afford a word processing program with spell check.
