Friends and Nieghbors

One Airstream belongs to another forum member a couple of miiles away. Yes, I claim Kposey as my neighbor and my friend.

But I've seen several Airstreams TTs and MoHos around my area parked in driveways or yards. Some I know are used often. Others, I'm not so sure . . .

Dacia, I know there is a derelict Airstream sitting in a yard on the access road to the Chattanooga West KOA, on the corner, behind a pine tree, in what would be the driveway of the house.

Hmmm, I missed that one. Terry, that's a pretty specific description on the location. Got coordinates on that too? Maybe we should have an Airstream round-up.

Bring 'um in, cowboy . . .

No other Airstreams in the neighborhood that I'm aware of, but my next door neighbor did buy my Silver Streak and is restoring it. There was a vintage (early sixties) Airstream about ten blocks away about 2 years ago but it was sold. About ten blocks the other way we see one stored during the winter months on an acreage, but as soon as the camping season starts it is long gone. I have several other neighbors who want one, but so far none have stepped to the plate.

There is a Silver Streak looking rather forlorn next to a barn 1/4 mile from us. It hasn't moved in several years. Then there is another SS about 5 miles toward town that is undergoing restoration. That one is really shiny. The only Airstream (other than ours) we see regularly is parked next to a gravel pit office. Really dusty that one is. I startle Lynn when ever I spot an AS. "THERE'S AN AIRSTREAM!" I shout.

I was alone until about 2 months ago. One of my neighbors bought a 61 globetrotter. I know of 2 others in the county.

Down here no one is allowed to park anything on the streets. (My country friends call this-yuppie H E double toothpicks!) There are 3 other Airstreams in the storage unit were we keep ours, but haven't seen the owners yet.

Not too many here in our town (about 7000 pop.)-but it sure gets comments and have had people ask to see it cause they've never been in an Airstream-if they only knew what they were missing we'd see more Airstreams and fewer white boxes on the road! Happy travels-

Hello Tincrew,
I was about to state that I've only seen one other Airstream in San Diego campgrounds in the past two years. I hope to see you out there soon. There's a WBCCI club in the county, just have not seen them camping near me yet. I'm out there 2 or 3 weekends a month, so hopefully we'll cross paths sooner or later. Airstreamers are rare in these parts. Toy haulers are in vogue. My Bambi is on the street in front of the house. Too much of a pain to go fetch it every weekend.
Tom

We are lucky too in that our next door neighbor allows us to park our TV and/or Airstream in his driveway.

Ours is alone here, but it's a bit different because it's an RV park, and we welcome others. We usually see a couple per month, so it's AS orgy time and again ...

It is at the corner of Slygo Road and Hales Gap Road. A Google sattellite map will show the trailer parked on the driveway leading to the house on the Southwest corner of the intersection.
I have spy satellites everywhere...

"A neighbourhood or neighborhood (see spelling differences) is a geographically localised community located within a larger city, town or suburb"

Heck, if you can reach their house while walking your dog, they're your neighbor :-)

I love the excitement that is felt when you see "another airstream." It's an excitement that is not felt when I see SOB on the road or in someone's yard.
