Newbie from NC

Hi ASF,
Over the Christmas Holidays, I convinced the parental units to pass along their 73 SOTR. I have so many questions and hope that I can use the great knowledge on the forums. So off to start the search,...

See you around!
Beth

Greetings Beth!

Welcome to the Forums and the world of Vintage Airstream ownership!

There is something very special about an Airstream that is also a family heirloom.

Good luck with your Airstream!

Kevin

Good Morning Beth,

Welcome!

There are several vintage owners in the eastern half of NC. I work from Apex, but live an hour south. Any questions feel free to PM or email me. Mine is a 1975, but they are pretty similar.

Aaron

Thanks Aaron, I will probably take you up on that offer. I live in Raleigh and the Airstream is currently in Troy, Montgomery County. I do have family in Sanford so maybe we can meet up for a crash course instruction? Do you live near Pinehurst/Carthage area?

Hey Fellow NC AS'er

Hi Beth,
I am a newbie myself, so my ability to provide knowledgable answers are slim, but I'm learning every day.
I live in Apex, and would like to first say welcome to the forums. I have learned SO much here, and there are many folks on here that can help with just about any topic. I can offer help if you need some, and an ear to bend as I always enjoy meeting new folks. Always nice to make a new friend! Good luck in your adventures, and maybe we will see ya down the road.

The WBCCI Piedmont, (region 3) chapter president lives in either Wendell or Zebulon, and is an awesome guy. Richard Paschall is his name, and I have bent his ear quite a few times. He's a wealth of knowledge, and he & his wife are extremely helpful for all things AS.
Looks like it's gonna be one very HAPPY NEW YEAR for you & your family!
Gavin

No problem meeting up for instructions and help. I live about 20 minutes below Sanford, right next to Fort Bragg. I know where Troy is, pass through there at least once a month going to and from Charlotte.

Welcome, welcome! We live in New Bern and have only been at this sport for about 18 months. You will meet a bunch of great people and have a lot of fun.
We first started in the Eastern Carolina unit because we live in Eastern Carolina. But we met a rally of the Carolinas Unit 21 and joined them for 2015 because they are more active. You can go to any function of any Unit though. A good way to see other Airstreams and learn.
Larry
