I Never Can Say Goodbye!

I've never really been good at saying, "Goodbye." However, due to an immediate, unexpected family expense, I've been forced to say "Goodbye" to our 1967 Overlander. Only had it a month and bonded BIG-TIME. We thought of every possible financial solution, but everything pointed to selling the Airstream and saving to buy another in a few years.

I know some will not agree or understand. This was a tough decision, but it had to be made. The buying family was the BEST we could have asked for. They truly loved our Airstream and will keep it forever.

I was a good Foster Parent, thanks to this forum.

A very special, personal thanks to those who helped awaken me from my apparent "nightmare." (Read Post: "Is My Dream a Nightmare?") You are truly a wonderful community of alumuminum allies. Like the governor of California once said, "I'll Be Back!" ...just as soon as we get back on our financial feet and have enough cash to buy another. Still love those 60's! You can bet I'll frequent this forum regularly and try to keep in touch with those on my Buddy List. God Bless you all!

Family is important....

but I'm sorry you did not even get to camp out. I hope everything is fine, and encourage you not to say goodbye. Just reading from time to time (or often daily as is many of us do.....) will keep you educated and help out with the next purchase.
Take care!

Consider your first AS ownership experience as a learning experience. I'm sure you learned a lot about what to look for in just a month, and next time hopefully you'll get an even better one.

If you hang around here you won't be able to stand it and you'll have another in no time!

Unhappy All good things...

Hopefully this is just a bump in the road, and you will be back to Airstreaming in what seems like no time at all. Good luck, and make sure you check in from time to time.

Pulling at my Heart 'Streams...

My good friends, I will check in on this forum every spare minute I have. Even though I am Airstreamless at the moment, I'm still 'streamin in my heart! Please keep up the good work as you maintain the VERY BEST FORUM I have ever seen. I appreciate your kindness and sensitivity to my current situation. You all are absolutely tops in my book.
Airstreams are like a box of chocolates....
