that is correct
the most incorrect flags
belong to the oldest existing airstream...
built by 'doc senior'
not from a kit....
don't you dare say that!

currently owned
and enjoyed
by 'doc junior'
who continues not to change things..
he 'just makes improvements'......

in the infamous 1935 torpedo!

cheers

doc was most kind.....
he gave me the full tour...
explained many details....
of the torpedo....
i am very grateful for the time he took
and the questions he answered.....
for the billionth time no doubt....

perhaps he was so willing to share....
because we share something else...

a dislike for protocol......
and an affinity for the rbcci.....

yes, the oldest existing airstream,
and the owner.....
are part of the new beret movement.....

rumor is 'doc junior' also owns the oldest existing beret
and that it might date from 1935....
could the design for the beret
have been part of the 5$ instructions
that lead to the torpedo?

it's possible....

afternoon rbcci watchers......

thanks for the positive comments, feedback, karma or just plain silly comments...
keep 'em coming!

this isn't my thread it is our thread!

...one of the more exciting events here,
was the grand opening of a coffee bar....
i like my espresso straight...
followed by a double latte chaser....

so catching a wiff of fresh ground....
drew me into the airstream corp building,
where jc ohio service folks,
and the company store
and the local dealer
were camped.....
doing biz....

as i followed the aroma,
there appears the 'silverjoes.com' stand....

turns out all the brand protection by the mothership.....
has a point....
my understanding is.....
a/s corp plans to license the name, logos
and other 'streamer trademarks.....
in various ways with various products....

airstream lifestyle sort of things....
and products that might appeal to the airstreamers out there....
well, i'm wayyyyyyy out there,
but perhaps clothing, appliances and various do dads......

and most certainly COFFEE!
seems this project/product has been in the works awhile....
and the international was chosen for the launch.....
coffee, tee's, rv espresso machines and what not......

it is called silverjoes.com so visit their website
for a look at the logo, products and so on....
but ya can't get aroma on line!

turns out the barista workin' the booth
is a long time supporter of rbcci....

that's nice,
so is the espresso....
come on taste the adventure!
i've got a buzz on now..........

cheers

as i savored my cup'o joe, espresso.......

who wheeled by in a golf cart?

none other than dave schumann....
head of somethin' at airstream...
and the author of schu's news....
in the blue beret.....

dave started on the assembly line....
doing insulation, i think....
this is where all the rookies used to cut teeth....
or quit......
dave and airstream prospered.....
as he moved up....
'customer services'? i think...
is what he heads.....

the golf cart wasn't for playin' a' round.....
rather it serves as his transportation....
as he runs the grounds....
servin' customers.

doesn't he look happy?
mr schu' is also a proud wearer of the new beret....
dashing isn't he?

cheers

dave took off.....
(he volunteered to recalibate all my holding tanks, and torque my lug nuts)

as the coffee cup bottom appreared.....
so did another pair of rbcci supporters.......
who are famous in their own right....
i mean domains....
or rather blogs.....

yes folks.....
none other than rich luhr (who shall remain anonymous)
and 'rich c' who goes by "gadget" here.....
and is the author of the didgital rv our bible for rv electronic gadgets....

of course both riches are working the rally.....
trying to get richer.....
while enjoying the airstream life.....

with these guys wearing the new beret
it's only a matter of time......
rbcci has narrowed the new beret field......
and is closing in.....
on the new hat....
imagine that!

it was really great to met these 2 young free thinkers,
who promote the airstream lifestyle...
and bring us such a great magazine and gadget help....

oh rich.......can you reformat my sony ipod thingie?
and rich.....why does everyone else get the mag b4 me?....

cheers

i'm feeling pretty good about the direction of the new beret now.......
seems the choices have been made....
we have narrowed the field.......
soon we will have a vote.....

of course,
someone might torpedo this movement,
or offer up another choice in toppers.....
i'm ok with that....

as i left the corporate building
a double take was needed...

was that who....
me thinks it be......
holly cow, it is......
de' boss.....
sporting the new beret!

if ya don't know how this is......
my all your aluminum be dull......
because 'mr. h' certainly isn't.....

he has been with airstream a very long time
and no doubt he's kept his new beret.....
wearing it on special occasions only....
like today

we can see the wheels turnin'......

as the big man says.....
"how bout a rasta safari edition guys, can we do it?"


cheers

nearly spent and speechless (ok just spent)

after this encouter, i head for the exit, back to my trailer.....
to check for flag violation notifications.....

just as i'm about to mount the bicycle....
in walks the tall man....
arriving for larry's offical address to the members......
a 'state of the airstream union' so to speak....

now it's clear.....
we are definitely on the right hat trick track......
since dickie himself,
sports the rbcci beret.....

a towering figure.....
who makes a towering sum.....
having raised the bar at airstream....
he is now doing the same for thor.....
won't the gods be happy?
i think


regardless,
he does look rasta cool......
'how bout a teeeenhut mon' ?
don't worry be happy.....
dickie is.....

and it was beyond kind.....
for him to show support,
for the new beret....

cheers

well i hope you are enjoying my visit to salem.....

i have.....well sort of
because i'm met some really great people who airstream.....
and from the forums.....
you know who you are

this will be my last post in this thread for a few days.....
i'm headed off to the silver falls rally....
to have fun with forum folks and freaks and so on....

i'm not done reporting on the international yet......
just taking a wireless pause....

so i'll leave you with these 2 photos.....

the first is my door bell/knocker......
which naturally violates rally protocol.....

do ya know why?

seems 2air' isn't equipped for taking or leaving messages......

so he's been updated to comply....
one clothes pin for incoming....
another for outgoing....
gosh i hope the colors are correct.....

now that he's properly dressed, please leave a message!

it was easier making the door bell comply.....
than i.........
or is it me.....?
or both?

cheers

2air Thanks so much for the thread. It has made me laugh and you are such a poet. But I just have to know where do we get the new hat!!! Have fun and stay out of trouble.

Cool

2air -

I live in Portland and went down for the day. Me thinks I just missed you...


--

Also, I thought I would attach a couple of picts. For folks to get an idea of what a sea of aluminum looks like. All the folks I meet there were extraordinary nice. I may go back Sunday or for the 4th to visit the flea market.


2air I hope I get to meet you.
