Wheels & hubcaps

Hello all, I sent a pm to Big Dee before posting and being the generous person that he is would be willing to pick up and bring to the rally if anyone has any interest.

Here is what I have 4 original 1987 Airstream steel wheels, very heavy, shipping don't want to know. These sell new for around 60 each. Hub caps were bought on ebay chrome plastic, set 55.00, has airstream logo in middle. Make an offer I'm easy and want to get rid of. Also have the original hubs highly polished but think ebay for these, hopefully the guy that paid over 200 for the spice rack would find interest in them. If these pics do not come thru email me and will send. Wishing that we could join you guys. have fun and look forward to seeing the pics.

Angry Diesel Fuel Prices :(

It's averaging just above $4.00/gallon here in the Seattle area. This is an all-time high since I've been using it Historically (ok just last year this time) in spring/summer diesel drops lower then regular gasoline. So, I'm looking at a very expensive drive down to Casini in April. I get 15mpg towing...

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update

Check out the right chart red line vs. blue....it was $2.75 last year.

So the question is any guess when/if it will start dropping? What are prices like in OR and CA?

NorCal: $4.29... and on the rise, I'm sure.

Unhappy Gas

We are outside the bay area and runs 3.47 this minute. Who knows by April don't even want to think about it. But we driving anyway, gotta use our little house.

the gas prices are really depressing. i pay all year just to use the trailer a few weeks and now i can't even afford to drive it anywhere. sad.

gas is $3.50 around here if you look for deals.
at least i didn't get a diesel which is a whopping $4.25 and climbing.
unbelievable!

Good thing it's all downhill from Seattle!

Mark paid $4.39 for Diesel yesterday! We might have to sell off some aluminum "bling" to continue our luxurious Airstream adventures.

I was thinking that we're actually saving money by parking for three days! Now THAT"S rationalization!

Counting the days...

Yikes! Last I checked, diesel was $4.25 here on the coast. I bought gas in Guernville on Sunday, and it's always about 20 cents less than here.

Getting ready

Just a little more than 2 weeks to go for most of you. Less for Lynn and I. We will be there on Tues and stay until Tues. Our planned jaunt up the coast after the Rally is canceled. Too expensive. So I am bringing extra Spam and Placerville Pacifico to keep my good cheer up. I think Lynn is bringing extra stuffed animals. We ARE a couple....

Hopefully our daughter and family will join us on the weekend. I think she said she bought a margarita ball. That'll go with Spam too.

Hello, all!
Our tour de West is unfortunately ending before the NorCal rally... we need to head home by April 8 at the latest. Is anyone going to be at the rally site by April 7-8? Would love to meet some other forum members/airstreamers and peek inside the vintage units, but we can't stay for the rally. I will buy Spam...

...all the way from Wyoming!

Hey, Jo! Nice to see you found us on the forums!
Looks like you may get to see FreshAir at Casini Ranch, which would be a treat for you as they have the shiniest and cutest AS. Plus, they tow it with a gorgeous RED 1971 Buick Centurion (as pictured on my blog).
Unfortunately, we'll miss you by a few days.

Have fun on your road trip!

Lynn and I plan to be at Casini on Tues. 4/8 in the afternoon. Come on in and say hello. I don't know about our TW being 'the shiniest' though.
