the power of the beret.......

most of this thread is not happening today....
in real time....
i'm not doing news flashes.....

but thought flashes....
when i have them...


but an event today is just tooo important.....
i've got to cover it right now.....
as it happens.....

it's BIG!

i met a forum member who shall remain anonymous
(wheel interested)
just as she pulled into the bull pen
a few days ago....
with her shinny new safari se, ss, ltd, esp, fb, bvd.......
which she has owned 4 weeks.....
and replaced a 1 year new classic......
that replaced a 1 year new safari.....
...or something like that....

anyway we talked and she visited my trailer, to cool off.....
and to discuss the virtues of hickory and corian.....

today i saw her sitting here.....

whats wrong with this picture?
well, she is sitting in an 07 classic limited rear door/front bed...
27footer......
looking confused.

cheers

while wheel interested is in this state.....
of beret nirvana......
showing support for the rbcci....

another forum member pops into the trailer.....
he too shall remain anonymous....
(jordandvm)
and seeing the clear need for medical intervention.....
he advises her on the virtues of hickory.....
and why too much shinny silver may fade her beret.....
and that no cows are killed to make ultraleather....

so at that very moment wheel interested.....
decides....
to buy this new 2007 airstream....
to replace the new airstream.....
she has just driven to salem....
having picked it up just weeks ago....

yes that's right......

and as crazy as it sounds.....
another person.....
who just purchased a smaller 2006.....
buys wheel interested's 2006 safari se/ss/ltd/fb/bvd......
within minutes......

clearly there is power and enlightenment in the beret.....
and perhaps a really hi fica score?


cheers

so wheel interested.....
having safely stored her beret.....
and having been found sane by the finance guy...

has her new safari moved next to her new classic....
like 2 earthworms mating....
the orifices (doors) are aligned....
so she can begin the process of moving her belongings...
while the service guys move her hitch....
and the other couple awaits.....
so they 2 can mate with the new safari...
repeating the process.....

crazy things can happen.....
to members of the rbcci.....

best wishes wheeli'
on the newest trailer....
and the new puppy
perhaps i'll see you in montana,
in a few days....

just don't completely unpack.....

cheers
2air'

more later.......

To make some people trade Airstreams more often than I change the oil in my car...
I think I am coming down with "2air-itis"...

trailers, flags, hats and docs.....

there has been some talk....
about the flags....
about the berets.....
but no nasty confrontations....
just as the trailers and people are unique,
so 2 what we wave.....

here is a shot of a very unique bambi II...last year of production.
owned by bert and dot from no'th car'o-lina
they are both retired vets....
but every day bert puts out the 'doctor is in' sign.....
and will see your pet....
this is when he is not in china,
or riding his bicycle across america...

he has made the bambi unique with a zipdee awning from a 34....
tank covers from an excella.....
airconditioning from some other trailer....
and so on, with lots of other touches....
did i mention he has 5? airstreams.....
from bambi to class a moho....

and he flys the proper flags
in the proper position
and sized properly for bambi...

but he isn't completely proper...
'cuze he wears the rbcci beret....

looks mighty dapper no?

cheers

flag protocol.....
dictates how many flags
and in what position
they may fly.....
most are limited to 3
big wigs......5

the guidelines are published elsewhere.......

here are some regular members and officers,
flying properly and in formation.....
per the protocol...

cheers

then i biked over to the vintage section.....

where flag violations.....
were everywhere,
up in the sky.....
taunting the rules....
and screaming.....
come'on, come here you protocol people....

perhaps an understanding was reached.....
in the past,
vintage plays
by a different set of rules....

cheers

as it turns out the most off protocol flags
were found in the vintage section.....

on the most vintage trailer......
or more correctly on the tow vehicle for the most vintage trailer.....
and like the trailer,
these flags were designed to fly while moving....
not just hang while parked....

way too many....
way too much....
way too decadent...
way 2 cool!

cheers
