Newbie in Oklahoma

Hi! Longtime lurker here, finally decided to join the party.

My name is Sarah and I live in Stillwater, Oklahoma. I'm not a native Okie though, as I was born and raised in Ohio. My brother and I used to count 'silver twinkies' on our family vacations in the Buckeye state, so Airstreams have been catching my eye since childhood.

I purchased my first AS in November, and just towed it home to Oklahoma last week. She's a 1964 Airstream Trade Wind Twin, whom I've affectionately named Miranda. She needs some work, but for the most part I think I landed myself a heck of a deal, and I am extremely excited about this project. Miranda was obviously very well cared for up until approx 2007 when she was sold as part of an estate auction. I have a public album on Facebook is anyone is interested in a complete set of photos of Miranda before restoration.

THANK YOU to everyone who posts here, I have already learned SO MUCH and have found very useful information on this website, especially when I was shopping for an AS of my own. I look forward to making some friends here!

Cheers!

First of all, welcome to the forums. Second, I love the name. We have a hot sauce (bar) and collection going here that we hope to implement into the trailer someday.

Steve, Tabasco is my nick name b/c it rhymes with my real last name.. people have been calling me that, or just Basco for ages. Ironic that in reality, I cant stand hot sauce. Bleck.

I've seen the video of her Airstream. Exthemius found it online somewhere.
