Very nice article, indeed!

Enjoyed reading through it. It really was nice to have met everyone at the Midwest Rally in June; makes the reading a little more personal!

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Mackanaw Rally, only a few days away!

Memories

Read the Article in the Post Dispatch and remembered as a kid traveling with a Silver Bullet behind us! Thanks for the Memories! (I personally considered it my Buck Rogers Spaceship)

Got me thinking though, I may be able to help anyone with Mattress and / or Cushion replacements, as I own a small mattress factory where we make custom sized beds, cushions etc. We make "regular" RV mattress replacements all the time but occasionally get the call to Help with restoration projects.

If anyone needs some help or has questions about such things....
Drop me an e-mail ! I can provide the "inside" story on mattresses and foam

Thanks Again,

Ed

Very good ariticle. I thought a bit of the timeline info was a bit off, but who knows.

Love the pic of Jack and Patty like the farmers with the pitchfork painting in front of their Classic.

I just wish there had been one picture of us smiling. That picture was posed to be deadpan serious. The story ended up being three pages long in the paper with three additional pictures. One of the side of our Classic with the slide out open, one of Midamrail's trailer with the rally flags mounted and a close up of Tin Can Luv polishing his trailer.

I think the writer picked up the timeline from an Airstream web site although I don't know which one.

I emailed the editior of the Life Style section to post some more pictures on their web site. Not one is yet to be found as of today.

Welcome aboard "Mattress Man." You will enjoy these forums tremendously if you haven't already!

There is so much information available on this forum I wonder how us Airstreamer’s made it in the years past with out it!

Nice article, guess since the TV show "The Simple Life 2" features an Airstream as the temporary home for socialites Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie there might be some added interest for Airstreamers in the news.

Just my 2 cents

Airstreamers are in a class of their own. Good story.

Thanks everyone. It is great to see forum members discuss their passion for Airstreams to the masses. I thought the exact same thing as Twink about the pic of Jack and Patty-get it painted into a portrait and you could end up in the Louvre as the representatives of "Americana" for the next 100 years! It really is a classic picture.

Congrats,
Ally

Great little article! It's neat to see positive, informative, write-ups (with pictures, no less) regarding our Airstreams AND those who treasure them.
I like the way this feature was written: 'nice balance of factual information and human interest. From my experience in journalism, I've found this balance is sometimes hard to achieve when writing for the general public.
Thanks to our Forum members for representing our "passion" so well.
