Thursday again, and I like my A/S

I Just purchased my '72 GT in Sept. I love it because everything worked on the maiden voyage last weekend.
This is a polished unit, (MY '98 was not) and last W/E is the first time I've ever been honked at with a thumbs up, and the first time a tour was requested by complete strangers.

also it should be on the dealer lot several days before delivery.

they need to wash in/out, vacumn and clean, clean, clean...

and it sure seems flamingo kid 1 has the most lasting #500 with the thread....
"what do you do for work?"
....lots of replies, >10,000 views with many sharing about themselves....

as martha might say........it's a good thread.

in that spirit, i offer up this thread starter.........

on thursdays, i'll come to this thread whenever a connection is at hand and provide just one thing i like about my airstream or airstreamin'....

sure hope you will join me on thursdays....and post just one thing YOU like about your airstream or airstreamin'

long or short, old or new, big or small, argosy or air, moho, trailer, van or coffee bar, whole or in parts......

"one thing i like about my airstream or airstreamin' is..........."

here is my offering this week.....

i like the fact that it is so much like the other airstreams from any decade....
and regardless of age or condition i feel some connection to the other folks who have one or remember the one they used to enjoy.....
it is hard to imagine that a few sheets of aluminum and a bag of rivets makes for this connection....but it does....
or is it something else?

ok your turn.................


now no milestone post from me would be worth a hoot......

without a little humor.........

just how much sweat and effort goes into the posting here?.....

the attached gif........

represents what i go through, every time i post......

so put some effort into it folks!!!!

WARNING THE FOLLOWING IMAGE CONTAINS GRAPHIC VIOLENCE....
NO CARTOON CHARACTERS WERE ACTUALLY HURT DURING PRODUCTION...
AND THE RED STUFF ISN'T BLOOD....but it is funny.

cheers

2air'
Congrats on your 500th post but I can see you are well beyond that number now. I can't say what I like about my airstream because I'm still looking for my dream classic motorhome. I will post back here when I get one.

It's Thursday and I love my Airstream because today's late afternoon sunshine, breaking through the day-long gloom, just danced off Gypsy's aluminum skin! What a picture: purple clouded sky overhead, rusty reds and gold woods in background, and that late slanted sunshine spotlighting our girl~marvelous!

Wow Merideth, what beautiful interior you have.

We, the station I work for, borrowed a 22 foot '60 something Safari that needed some real serious work. I could see lots of potential for that poor thing, but, that photo of yours,...just raised the bar.

I like my Airstream, well, because its not some other brand.

It's a few days past Thursday and I love my Airstream because...

it provides a respite from my hectic daily life. I started to winterize her today but the season isn't over yet. We have three cold-weather trips planned so far this year.

It isn't Thursday... But...

Well folks I missed last Thursday and will miss this coming Thursday, so I thought I had better get with it and sing the praises!

It is Tuesday and I my Airstream! She did a great job keeping us comfy on our jaunt down and back to the NorCal Rally at San Antonio! Great time... and our vintage aluminum was happy to meet so many others...

Now she is getting packed and ready for the Beverly Beach Rally! Lots of good times to continue! Doesn't get much better! More good folks, good food, good times, life is good!

See you soon!

Got to love the Three Dog Night reference

have you been to Spain
?

But I kinda like the music
Say the ladies are insane there
And they sure know how to use it
They don't abuse it
Never gonna lose it

I can't refuse it

It's a good thing it's Wednesday and not Thursday as I write this because just at this moment my Airstream and I are not on speaking terms, but by Thursday we'll have made up. As I was winterizing and draining the drain from the fresh water tank it decided to snap off up inside the trailer floor where it comes through. Good thing there was no one around at the time ..... I had to walk away and let things stew for a couple of days. I knew this was going to be a chore so today took a look to figure out what's involved and it looks as though the removal of the entire gaucho area is the only way to do this properly. Dang - now I have a project for the winter and I was thinking I'd be puttering around the shop, half bored, and thinking up make-work projects while reading good travel planning books in front of the fireplace. And now I won't be able to do those little projects around the house my wife was thinking I could tackle with all my spare time . Good thing she doesn't read these.
