Sandy, my husband always says the same thing, but we now have 4 and I have just spotted a 64 Overlander a mile or two from home... I hope he doesn't read this!

Vintage A/Ss are like potato chips: can't have just one!

I do not hold claim to the title, but when I go to the Port, Airstream Dude is what they call me. I even have used it as a user name on a few website I buy materials from...

FTW has many interpertations. For The (sake)of Wally. First the Wheels. Frank the Wank. Frank's Total World. Frank's Tiny World. It can be how ever you want it to be. I did realize that F the World was what many might read right after the State of Maryland gave me my green light to be a business here.

Frank as far as I'm concerned the title is yours. When I ran my roach coach my name was the food dude. I even had it applied to the windshield so everyone knew it was me coming down the road.
Too funny all the hidden meanings of FTW.

WC,
I remember looking at the ad for that trailer! The colors make you think it was used as a daycare! It is really nice with all the jalosie windows. It will be a spectacular trailer when it's finished.
It seems that "Airstream Dude" is a generic term for anyone that has aluminitus to the non afflicted. At Heights Lumber and Supply the younger people refer to me as "The Airstream Dude" the more mature call me Lance.

Yeah Rex I think it should fit. All I needed was 5 inches to get the 31 fter in the door. It will be a couple of years before I get to find out. The rebuild will take some time to do. Maybe I'll visit it next winter once the park closes for the season.

You can come stay at the Anna Inn. A number of clients and guests have stayed in her this past year. She sits all hooked up and ready for a guest at any moment...

Thanks very much Frank. If I have any luck with the excella it might be ready this fall so I could travel with it.
Safe journey my friend and take care of my new "Budda Baby". I'm toying with that for a name given where it is coming from. Whatcha think?

I am hoping to go in and participate before my return. Maybe spin the prayer wheel a few times.
