Welcome........unique look for an AS. They did a good job on it. It does give it the Argosy look!

I lived in Ca for several years, loved it out there.....

As for promoting California in California, it works! 83% of all travelers in California are Californians. By continually reminding Californians what a great place to discover the diversity of our attractions, they often learn about new places to go. As for those worried about spending California tax dollars on marketing, it's not happening. There is an industry funded organization called the California Travel and Tourism Commission, which takes no state funding to market both in California, domestically, and internationally. If we counted on state funding, we would have been gone a long time ago. Come visit us at the Mountian View Wine & Art Festival next weekend. It's FREE!

I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Bob & Karen today (well mainly Bob) at the Mountain View Art & Wine Festival. The main reason I went was to meet them and get a tour of their SWEET Flying Cloud. I think the 27ft Flying Cloud may just be the PERFECT layout. Nice size bedroom plus a generous living space. Bob was VERY gracious and gave me the full tour of his trailer. This was my first time in a new Airstream and I must say I was impressed! Oh yeah, I will be adding a Fantastic-Vent (or two) to my Globetrotter - what a wonderful breeze they offer!

At first I didn't get the whole selling Californian's on the idea of California, but after visiting with them and picking up the abundant literature they had to offer, I am INSPIRED to make it my quest to see more of this great state - sooner rather than later.

Also, the vinyl covered table with a map of California was VERY COOL. I'm even thinking of doing something similar in my trailer. Happy Streaming and enjoy that wonderful FC when your tour ends!!!!!

Born, raised, educated, living and hopefully retiring in California

Hi Bob and Karen,
Its Eric's (Johns brother) girlfriend, we saw it at the wedding! We checked out the inside and it was super cool. We are looking to buy one!

Oh and I got some bad news for you. Eric used the bathroom... He didn't know, there wasn't a sign. Sorry.

Smiles,
Pink

Great to have you with us......pics of your California AS preceded you! California is a great place, lived many years there.

Good luck and have fun with your terrific job!

perhaps one day, you'll get to sleep in the AS as well! Motels/Hotels get old after a while..

Al
