The Airstream

The Airstream. I have called them other names as they cause me to bleed bruise and not work as they should. But its an Airstream, no need for naming.

We call ours Air Hamel. Hamel being our last name. We also have named our sob's.
The truck is Sunny, it's solar yellow Nissan, her car was her parents, her dad's nickname was red, so you know that one. We have a Ford Fairmont that is white. It was given to me when my great-aunt died, so it's name is Angel. They might be corny, but why not?

My mother's name was Beatrice, and she was everybody's Aunt Bea. That might be a good name for a B van..."Aunt B".

As a Texan, I love this name! How visually appropriate.

"the trailer" or "the airstream" seems to work for us.

Aunt Jean's name is still my favorite.

She called hers "the silver suppository"


I settled for "foiled again" for my second one.

I think I'll call mine 'Spud', because it looks like a big, foil wrapped, baked potatoe.

Being a family of musicians - Heavy Metal - seemed a good name, although I prefer jazz and blues... plus it gives us the opportunity to design a logo for the back with flames or something...

Yes JulianneJ,

We are in the Phoenix area but on the other side of town from you. We live in the East Valley in the Ahwatukee area. We look forward to meeting you in Williams.

We're leaning towards calling ours Flo. Just seems to fit since the air just flows over her when we're going down the road. Kind of like where the Airstream name came from. If you know the history of where Wally came up with the name..."air just seems to stream over..."

I'm looking forward to Williams myself.
