Meadowlark Lemon

My new 1963 vintage will debut her new name.... 'Meadowlark'... why?
Because she's a Globetrotter!

We finally came up with a name for our '63 Globetrotter. In the mid 1960's when my wife was about 9 years old, she lived in Phoenix, Arizona a couple on times over a few years. Her & her two brothers purchased a Dessert Tortoise from a pet store. George, the tortoise, travel with the family over the next 12+ years to the 6 different cities they lived. George would hibernate every winter--wake up ready for the spring.

We're hoping that George will soon be able to travel all over the country (after hibernating in the winter). We think that they even look a little alike.

Mrs. Glisten -- Because I admired a frail, arthritic old woman in the "County Home" in Macon, GA who had a wonderful spirit.

Catarina. My wife and daughter both have Cathryn in their name, and we live in Texico so I think the Spanish version is appropriate. Also, the previous owner's name was Cat, so it seemed fitting all the way around.

Of course, she used to be named "Goliath."

Terry and Marie only THOUGHT she was giant, until they found Big Bertha.

Susan B

My Dad's boat was the Goldy B, his truck was the Goldy B (mom), my truck was the Susan B and now the camper is the Susan B (da wife). All ships are named for women, no?

We have been camping in the Adirondacks all our lives.

A Native American translation for Adirondack...."Cloudsplitter", somehow the word just seems to fit, Airstream splits the clouds.

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

When we got our trailer, we expected to travel with our little malti-pek. However she died (put down) not long after we got the trailer. So it seemed only appropiate to name her sempi2. Hence my name on the forum. Her name Sempi came from semper-fi (always faithful). Rusty Rivet got her for my surprise Christmas gift after I was suffering "empty nest" syndrom, after our baby left for the Marines.

Wow - I don't think we have ever replied to this thread! 1. Buttercup - the movie "Princess Bride" - Princess Buttercup. 2. Wally 54 - It is a dedication to the Wally Byam spirit and a 1954 Airstream whaletail... Wally 54. 3. Airtini - as a 34.5 foot Airstream it is anything but tiny. But it was so cute, we could not pass that up!
