I like my airstream because...

We spent our first night in her. We went to the LBL mini Rally and had a great time meeting some neat forum folks. She is far from finished, but should give us many years of fun and work. I can't wait to take her out again.

Lovin' the stream...

It is Thursday! And I my Bambi! Last night and today we had the first rain of the season... a pretty good soaking rain! And.... (drum roll here...) it was the first time since the restoration that our Bambi has been out in the weather! Fingers crossed... she seems nice and dry! No leaks that we have found!

We were feeling a bit about how she would do... but so far so good! Next week we will be getting her ready for the road ~ down to Lake San Antonio! Then, north to Beverly Beach!

Hubby has been working on the tow vehicle... removed the bumper, new hitch receiver, all new bolts, painted the bumper, and new light for the license plate! Our little 1968 Ford 4 X 4 is ready to pull the Tardis!

It is Thursday, and I love my Bambi!

First kid up gets Thursday's 1st post

I know its not really fair since it was 1am PST when I woke up in EST.
It is nice to log on and have some Airstream company when you can't sleep, even if it is just reading old threads.
And I was wondering if there are more Airstreams than kids. Seems there are unlimited photos of Airstreams but Airstreams kids are hard to find.
Thanks AS forum, for being there while the coffee is brewing and everyone else seems to be sound asleep.

Well it really is Thursday and I like my Airstream cause I can't wait to visit it (its at a storage place near us) so I can think of things to improve it. I look forward to taking her(?) out on our first trip - probably a quick weekend trip to Front Royal or some other nearby place to "get our feet wet." Who knows, maybe we will run into (not literally of course) a forum member.

Next week I start the strip process and then polish, I just love thinking how he will look when I'm done.

We just got back from our maiden voyage, 10 days down in the Shawnee Nat'l Forest... it was so luxurious! We were accustomed to our little Aliner popup, which is really just a step up from a tent... and now THIS! Took warm showers & made chili... hung out beneath the awning and took turns sleeping in the different areas. Watched the leaves fall & went persimmon hunting. Dreamy! We were so comfortable! We love our Airstream!!!

It's Thursday and I like my Airstream because she's not winterized yet - only two more weeks until Beverly Beach!

This week I like my Airstream because she's taking a rest this week end, but next week end she will be taking the family to Disney World to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party! We all can't wait for another trip to our favorite place on earth!

It's Thursday and I like my Airstream because I'm getting things ready for next week's NorCal Rally..cleaned the slipcovers of the bed, and will start decluttering the dinette area..I've found that I have extra plastic containers I've stored that I probably don't really any of you find you have too much stuff that you store in your a/s????

Also, I'm looking to buy some red paint to do the numbers on the front of the Safari..any suggestions on brands of paint??

....Thursday... because...Airstream One is taking me home. After two full weeks on the road it's nice to get back home.
We've been from the mountains (Banner Elk NC) to the coast (Emerald Isle NC) down the coast to Wilmington and now headed home to Sumter SC. Two weeks with a bunch of new and old friends, customers...1600 miles with lots of smiles. And of course the never ending enjoyment of folks asking about Airstream One.

it's Thursday again, I like my Airstream this week because she took us away from our hurry-up-busy-busy life, to the beach where we played in the sand, watched the dolphins float by, and lost ourselves in the glorious sunsets.

the heat is on and when i go get her in the morning she will be warmly waiting...

i hope.

a colorful fall weekend in the ozarks awaits...


all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.
